Darth Vader #20

Has he gotten away with it? That seems to be the case as Darth Vader survives encounters with both the Emperor and Inspector Thanoth. The former appears unaware of his apprentice’s machinations while the later will offer no threat to the Dark Lord of the Sith following this issue. While his plans are far from complete, there’s still the missing Aphra to deal with, it would appear Darth Vader has made it through events unscathed.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #26While Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #26 offers a major turning point in the season in revealing the identity of this season’s big bad, it’s not the most enjoyable aspect of the comic.

Green Lantern #52

Green Lantern #52Hal Jordan‘s New 52 adventures come to a close with a battle between the last remaining Green Lantern and the Gray Agents attempting to make a name for themselves by taking the space cop down. Robert Venditti and his team write and end for the version of Hal Jordan that wraps up some, but certainly not all, of the loose strings surrounding the renegade Green Lantern’s recent adventures. The Corps is still gone and we are no closer to understanding just what Hal Jordan is becoming.

As we’ve seen in recent months, the final issue of the series continues to tease Hal loosing himself to the power of the gauntlet and becoming less human. With Jordan apparently returning to costume and ring in the new series Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps as part of DC Comics’ Rebirth reboot, you have to wonder what (if any) of this storyline will be kept.
