Promising start to the next big event 0

Green Lantern #53  THE GOOD:  The one page of Saint Walker going through the cematary grave by grave to eulogize the desecrated dead was a simple and elegant way of showing what the Blue Lanterns are all about. Hal and Carol rekindling their relationship.

Another Hal Jordan Origin Story 0

Following the incredible Sinestro Corps War this issue once again revisits the origin of Hal Jordan. Much of it is rehashed background from the recent series and seems repetitive.

The impact of how Hal's decision to run away and join the air force affected his family is very well done. One can see how Hal goes from h...
