Summary: Rookie Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein’s investigation of the first murder in 500 years hits a snag when the murderer is murdered. Whatever’s going on, it’s something to do with Switchoff, a highly illegal genetic cocktail that restores dangerous feelings to the emotionless citizens of the City Enduring…


Review

“Imagine yourself hollow, Lantern Mullein. Aching with emptiness. Cold with it. Alone inside your own skin. And in the moment that you feed…warmth. Something fills you. Not merely flesh, but a presence. Another soul, as bright and strong as your own…”

The City Enduring has a strange but effective way of keeping its citizens in line, and the tactics used doesn’t differ much from ones used in The Giver. Interestingly, the circulation of a new ‘genetic cocktail,’ Switchoff, that provides the City Enduring’s occupants with the emotional freedom that they once had, has led to a series of murders. This leads me to ask the question: is emotional freedom a good thing, or a bad one?

While I am not for implementing some sort of drug-induced emotional sterility program, I do think that the questions being asked in this series are worth discussing. Thus far, N.K. Jemisin has done a fine job in provoking meaningful thought in ways that are interesting and exciting, and Jamal Campbell’s artwork has been stunning. 

Bottom Line

Far Sector continues to impress. Thought-provoking and exciting, N.K. Jemisin’s Green Lantern Corp. story is a must-read.

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.
