Sweet End To A Sweet Run


Green Lantern Corps (Volume 2) #47
Written Peter Tomasi
Art by Patrick Gleason


Tomasi’s run on this book comes to an end on this issue and it couldn’t couldn’t have been a better way to wrap up. Guy and Kyle toasting at the Warrior’s Bar, the Guardian’s repealing the third law, Kyle’s amazing speech about how the Green Lantern Corps needs heart and soul and not just cold logic (This is another reason why Kyle is so much cooler then Hal). Vath and Isamot’s fight and reunion over Vath’s legs. It was all so good and great character moments. I will miss Tomasi and Gleason on this book, but at least Bedard is a great replacement. This is still the best Green Lantern book on the stands.

  1. With all due respect, I Can’t agree about Kyle being cooler than Hal. Kyle’s frequent emotional tizzies, his lack of self discipline, and his constant need to “challenge authority” (doesn’t everyone nowadays?) make him simply average in world of today’s muscle-bound, splashy superheroes. It also makes him an eternal boy, stamping his feet. I think Hal’s incredible discipline, the way he channels and uses his emotional life (as opposed to Kyle’s childish tantrums), and finally his recognition that law and order protect and serve the greater good and the greater number, make him far cooler than Kyle. The Corp needs “heart and soul”? Please. Save that feel-good, trite shit for the high school cheerleading squad. Kyle behaves most often like a silly, spoiled child. Fuck him and his constant pissing and moaning. Hal behaves like a man and, while we’re at it, his Green Lantern title is the only GL title worth a damn anyway.

    Great site! Keep up the good work!
