The Green Lantern (2018-) #4 Review

Title: The Green Lantern (2018-) #3
Publisher: DC
Words: Grant Morrison
Art: Liam Sharp
Colors: Steve Oliff
Published: February 6, 2019

Publisher’s Summary: In a bar on Rann, two shrouded strangers recount two blood-chilling narratives-one in which a Blackstar heavyweight demands access to a secret vault on planet Weirwimm, threatening its gruesome annihilation with Sun-Eaters; and the other about maverick Hal Jordan and his small cadre of GLs struggling to destroy those same Sun-Eaters. And the cliffhanger-as any TGL fan will tell you about this book-may stun you enough to buy two copies!


Review

“There are no gods. There never were.”

Look, you had me at, two shrouded strangers telling stories in a bar on Rann…these two strangers tell tales that are significantly more interesting than anything I’ve ever heard in a bar (and that’s saying something), and although this issue takes place in a single location, the stories exchanged are captivating.

As Morrison continues to expand his Green Lantern universe, and more players are added to the game, the series continues to grow in both complexity and intensity. Cosmic vampires and sun eaters are just the start of it, The Green Lantern #4,  is, like all of Morrison’s projects, full of food-for-thought and provides good reason for second and third reads. Although this scene that concludes this issue isn’t as thought-provoking as the one the ended its predecessor, it works to generate interest and main momentum. Hal Jordan has a plan, I’m sure, but at this point, I’m concerned for his well-being…

The Bottom Line

Impeccable world building and masterful storytelling make this series, as well as every issue thus far, a must-read. Sure, it’s weird, but stories about space cops should be weird, right?

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
