The all-out assault on the Lantern Corps(es?) continues as the Reach (I assume the race that created Blue Beetle’s armor – I don’t know much about BB but the design looks the same) assault Odym, the Blue Lanterns’ homeworld.

This issue features Saint Walker and his fellow Blue Lanterns in their defense of their homeworld, and while this isn’t quite as compelling a story as last month’s, it’s not bad for big, flashy Lantern action. This is also an opportunity to dig more into the nature of the Blue Lantern Corps and Saint Walker’s place in it.

Though not a deep story by any means, the art and scripting are both solid. The Blue Lanterns are as racially diverse as any corps, so there’s more than a few neat aliens in there. It’s kind of interesting, a ring powered by hope, and the fragility that inevitably brings: more so, I would think, than fear, or will, or rage.

As a relative newcomer to the Green Lantern mythos, I continue to enjoy the pace at which this series expands upon the emotional spectrum and those that bear the rings. This may be old news to long-time GL vets, but for a new reader it’s a fun cosmic ride.

  1. Totally agree. This was my Pick of the Week. I’m really liking most everything going on in the Lantern titles lately and the New Guardians is especially welcome. Great points on Saint Walker and easy access to new readers.

  2. This is my favorite issue of the series, mainly because I’ve never seen Saint Walker be such a badass and a leader before..hope he continues this way!
