Comic Reviews: The Conclusion of WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS!
Green Lantern #67
And, now, “The War Of The Green Lanterns” has ended, and what a ride it’s been. Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke definitely deliver a jaw dropping finally, with some great moments that somehow hadn’t been spoiled just yet (with the exception of the ending).
The finale finds Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, and Kyle Rayner freeing their comrades in the “Crayola Corps”, and confronting Krona, the fallen guardian. Doug Mahnke’s art is spectacular here, presenting us with some jaw-dropping splash pages peppered throughout the issue. I can’t get too into Geoff John’s story this issue without spoiling something really spectacular that will be picked up in the DC relaunch, but I have to say, I am extremely impressed with this issue, and cannot wait to see how the events here play out in the rest of DC universe.
Red Wing #1 (of 4)
Jonathan Hickman’s Image book The Red Wing launches this week, and it is an extremely fresh and original take on time travel. The story follows a pilot and his son, who are at war with an alien race in different time periods. They travel in ships that don’t just travel in air, they also travel through TIME. Pretty sweet right? Hickman shows us both the “present”, as well as the past, as one pilot is stuck in time, while his son believes he is still alive, years after he is presumed dead. This is a fantastic and intriguing first issue from Hickman, and the art by Nick Pitarra is phenomenal. The Red Wing is one of those “perfect first issues” that gives you some answers, but intrigues you as well to keep reading. This is a book to definitely keep your eye on.
