HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS REBIRTH #1 brings Hal Jordan back to the Green Lantern Corps and throws Sinestro into the mix. The story has its downfalls and the characterization is lacking depth. However, the art adds a feel for the settings.
GREEN LANTERNS #2 is all about Jessica Cruz and her wavering confidence as a Green Lantern. Cruz’s character is well developed in this issue, while Simon Baz is left behind. The issue also offers some very detailed art as well as a good amount of buildup for the Red Lanterns and their “Red Dawn.”
In CYBORG #12, Vic takes on two complicated siblings with superpowers. The story is well written and complete, with a beginning, middle, and end. The story’s new villains, meanwhile, bring out the best in this issue’s artwork.
GREEN LANTERNS #1 shows Baz and Cruz on their first mission as Green Lanterns. Humphries keeps the character backgrounds as these two try to figure out the new partnership. As Baz and Cruz evolve, the Red Lanterns’ plan is evolving as well.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #51 follows Robin’s introduction to the Justice League. The story doesn’t do much for the series or the League itself but instead works toward building up Robin for TITANS: REBIRTH. The issue is not lost, though, since the art is well done and the panels depicting action are amazing.
EARTH 2 SOCIETY #13 begins a new story for the Wonders of Earth 2. Fury wants to share resources with everyone. Meanwhile, Ultrahumanite is sitting in wait in the shadows for the moment to strike. The issue does a great job building up the new story arc with well-structured writing and art.
GREEN LANTERNS REBIRTH #1 features the lesser used Green Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz as they learn how to truly be Green Lanterns. The issue is masterfully written with an emotional background for the characters, and the art does well to further the new partnership and show off the abilities of the rookie lanterns.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #50 is the incredible finale to the Darkseid War. The issue is jam-packed with reveals and plot points, but it is done masterfully by Geoff Johns with the art standing out as a major highlight due to some amazing detail work by Jason Fabok.
GREEN LANTERN #52 is a strange ending for a strange run on the character. It isn’t bad but is ultimately forgettable ahead of the Rebirth later this month.
