Guy Vs. Hal

This is part 3 of the War of the Green Lanterns storyline that began here and continued here. In this part Hal and Guy come to blows after meeting in a the secret "Green House” of the Corps and Tomasi did a great job of showing their rivalry over the years. I loved how Pasarin drew Guy in his different costumes punching Hal as Lantern Constructs. In the end, of course, they take off their rings. I have to say that this was a great issue even though Hal was in it (Tomasi doesn’t write Hal as being quite as unlikable as Johns does I think.)

Old Snake Eyes

So old snake eyes is now in control of Sodom Yat – that is not good for anyone – Yat is Kryptonian-level powerful. Maxwell Lord and Zardor or whatever his name is should team up. I am glad Kilowod and Arisia saved the day – that was a great scene but some of the art made things a bit confusing for me while reading it. Not a bad issue though.

Emerald Warriors 5 and 6

The Green Lanterns under the control of the evil telepath guys all kill themselves in a sad and disturbing scene and Kilowog is deeply affected. Meanwhile, Guy Gardner reveals why he made the pact with Atrocitus. Interesting stuff.

Guy’s in trouble! The telepath guy I can never rember his name has control of Sodom Yat. Shit! But the real break-out star – as the cover suggests – is Bleez. She is just hilarious as she casually kills of the planet guards and drinks her own blood as the other lanterns talk. I love her! I wonder if she will be staying her or transfering to the new Red Lantern Corps book when it begins.

Guy Gardner’s breathable, unbreathable torture was hilarious…otherwise I found this issue to be pretty forgettable. I have enjoyed this book a lot so far but I can’t figure out why this issue bored me to tears. Hm.

There Is No Fighting On Odym

Umm Brother Warth is awesome! He just puts his hand around Bleez and says there is no fighting on Odym and he has got her! I love his calm Buddha-like attitude, he is the perfect Blue Lantern. I crack up everytime Guy calls him Babar haha! Anyways, we find out the true threat in the unknown sectors – someone is draing the power of the Green Lantern rings slowly. I think this is supposed to be the guy who has kidnapped all the telepaths and is using them to control rookie lanterns but I could be wrong. I like that Bleez is sticking around with our merry crew as she is an awesome looking character. Poor Sodom Yat can never catch a break with his own people though.

So Guy will joined by Kilowog and Arisia to the unknown sectors. Apparently there is an evil snake telepath guy who is building a telepath army? Anyways, this was another good issue. I still wonder what exactly Guy’s mission is and why he thinks Kyle, Hal, and John will be upset with him about it. Kilowog seems to be majorly depressed, poor guy.  It was great to see Odym and the Blue Lantern Corps again as they are by far my favorite of these new Corps. This book is a welcome addition to the GL books as it serves as sort of different purpose then the other two as the traveling into the unknown book. Very cool.

Maintaining The Quality

Bedard and Sayaf both get off to a great start on their run on this book! Sayaf is different from Gleason but still manages to make Oa look amazing. John Stewart joing the cast just as Guy leaves. Ganthet officially becomes a Green Lantern. Everything was pretty darn good and it looks like this series will maintain the quality that it had under Tomasi and Gleason. Definitely the best Green Lantern book still.
