Thoughts on the Green Lanterns Rebirth

Again, the time between blogging shows itself by looking back at where Green Lantern was versus where it is now. The announcement of the Rebirth Green Lantern titles struck me as a very odd move by DC. The main monthly book, Green Lantern, became Green Lanterns focusing on newbie Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz.... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern Post Geoff Johns

Geoff Johns leaving the Green Lantern titles was a landmark moment.  So big, in fact, that DC decided to revamp the whole line up, replacing every other creative on the books as well.  I might argue that this was a tad overkill, but it was understandable. Its a change I was pretty excited about, having been... Continue Reading →

The New 52 – Green Lantern Corps

The third Lantern book of the reboot, and the second returning title, Green Lantern Corps has none-the-less had things rejigged a bit, with Peter Tomasi and Guy returning to the book, while Kyle has exited to star in the New Guardians title. While I criticised Green Lantern #1 for not coming across as much of... Continue Reading →

Red Lanterns #1

As a result, I did have some... Continue Reading →

Justice League #1

War of the Green Lanterns Aftermath

*sigh* I've gotten so bad at keeping up with my blogging.  Anyway, War of the Green Lanterns is over, and Tony Bedard has been firmly handed the keys to the car while Geoff's away plotting the reboot.  While Peter Tomasi's Emerald Warriors has shifted to one-and-done issues featuring Guy, Green Lantern Corps picks up the...

Green Lantern #67

And so, despite the delays, the finale of War of the Green Lanterns finally arrives with some big shocks in store as Geoff Johns plants the seeds for the next storylines as Krona is being defeated. But did anyone else think it all felt a bit rushed? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the... Continue Reading →
