    Reviews - Green Lantern Corps - #11

View this issue

The Alpha-War rages on. - colten97
Being titled Green Lantern Corps, this series features the Corps at large, which works for and against this issue. Itís great to see the drama of John Stewartís jailbreak unfold on Oa with an uncountable amount of Green Lanterns joining the fray against the Alphas, but in this excess the art suffers due to a lack of focus. On any given page of this issue thereís an overwhelming amount of bodies, constructs, and the color green.

Fernando Pasarinís character work and detailed settings are superb, but most panels do not have a dominant image that immediately attracts your eye. I found myself squinting at each panel in search of what I was supposed to be looking at. It doesnít help that most of the characters here are aliens with weird physiques that are then contorted into mid-air fighting poses, and it certainly doesnít help that just about everything that matters is colored green. This is all the more sad because this issue kicks up the story in a big way.

I am pleased with the direction that Peter J. Tomasi is taking this story because it is wholly unexpected. John and Guy Gardner return to a location familiar to anyone who read War of the Green Lanterns, and revisiting this mysterious locale to explore further is what fuels the excitement. The only thing missing is reconnecting with a certain creature who dwells there. Maybe he hightailed it because he noticed the Guardians are deviously standing by and watching their Corps tear itself apart. Tomasi continues to develop the smaller scale conflicts along with the overarching plot featuring the Guardians that ties all of the Green Lantern titles together, making this an unmissable series for any Green Lantern fan.
