Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 comic reviewI may have enjoyed Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 a bit more if the entire story hadn’t been a misdirect. That said, fans of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps should still have fun with the Green Lantern’s return to Earth to investigate Superman‘s recent encounter with Parallax and news that Sinestro is alive in the anti-matter dimension on Qward.

While Hal’s fight of a Parallax-controlled Superman turns out to be all in the Green Lantern’s mind, the action is still pretty solid until the hallucination is broken. Hal’s reasoning of who is altering his reality leads into next month’s return of Hector Hammond, who apparently needs his old nemesis’ help.

Green Arrow #30 comic reviewGreen Arrow‘s road trip finally leads him back to his former hard traveling companion. Needing help to get into space to check out the Ninth’s Circle secret satellite, Ollie calls on his old pal Hal Jordan. Writer Benjamin Percy certainly has fun bringing this argumentative pair back together for one more road trip.

After trading a few barbs, Ollie explains the situation and the pair set off into Green Lantern’s realm looking to destroy the evil syndicate’s satellite located on the dark side of the moon. Over the past several issues the comic has teamed-up Green Arrow with various Justice Leaguers, but this is the pairing we’ve been waiting for. And it doesn’t disappoint.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #25

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #25 comic reviewOne step forward, ten steps back. I have to say I’m disappointed in the outcome of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #25. While the over-sized issue itself is fine, although far from great, the build-up to a new day for the Green Lantern Corps working alongside the Sinestro Corps is wasted here returning everything to the status quo.

Great, after all that groundwork we’re thrown back into the rut that Green Lantern comics have been stuck in for the better part of decade. The idea of the unification of the two groups brought something fresh to the comic for the first time in a good long while by having the groups work together to patrol the galaxy. Sigh.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #23 comic reviewWhen a prisoner makes a damning allegation and a startling threat against the Green Lantern Corps, John Stewart is forced to take it seriously sending Guy Gardner and his partner Arkillo into the villain’s stronghold to take down the rest of his collaborators and find this “proof” he threatens to expose if the Corps doesn’t release him.

There a two subplots here, the first involves Hal Jordan‘s concern over Tomar-Tu‘s recent troubles which will eventually be revealed to be tied into the villain’s revelations once Gardner and Arkillo find evidence of Tomar-Tu murdering a member of the Sinestro Corps. Is the fragile peace so hard-won already about the shatter?
