The art teams on this series are some of the best in comic books. I love Ed Benes and Rafa Sandoval, and I’ve definitely praised them before. But no one draws Green Lantern like Ethan Van Sciver. Whew! Right from the first page, Larfleeze is sending his constructs to fight the Green and Yellow Lantern Corps, and you swear these things are going to pop off the page. While Tomar-Tu uses his ring to keep his home city of Xudar small, the rest of the Green Lantern Corps attempt to hold back these orange slobs lest they become one of Larfleeze’s greedy army. The Sinestro Corps and the Green Lantern Corps fight back-to-back, but all seems hopeless against the overwhelming tide of avarice-based constructs.
Bits and Pieces:
A contrived ending and some classic hard light construct smashy smashy results in a fairly underwhelming comic book, save for a new minion for Larfleeze and a change in the status of Green Lantern/Sinestro Corps relations. It's a lot more exciting than C-Span, I promise. And with Van Sciver at the pencil it looks a lot better than that, too.
