Green Lantern Corps #22

And here we finish up the two-parter with Boodikka and the Alpha Lanterns. Not a bad little tale, all in all, although I find myself desperately missing Guy and Kyle, but at least they'll be back NEXT issue.

As we all recall, the Guardians have sent a newly Manhunterized Boodikka back to her old stomping grounds, to find the NEW GL of her sector, who just coincidentally happens to be her very own sister. Her very own sister however, doesn't WANT to go to Oa and be a good little Nightlite, since she is very much under the sway of Recca, who leads the whole bunch of Amazonian-like freebooters from Bellatrix.

Of course they fight. And there is a nice flashback of Boodikka's fight with Hal that lead to the severing of her hand. It turns out that Recca is BAD, and is only using Zale, the new Green Lantern, and Boodikka's very own sister, which makes Zale get mad, and then they fight, and then Boodikka goes all roboty, when who should show up (sort of) but the Guardians, who demand that Boodikka bring Zale with her to Oa, RIGHT NOW!

Instead of putting Zale in jail, or decommisioning her or OH, I don't know, TURNING HER INTO A RED LANTERN...the Guardians actually show a little bit of compassion and intelligence for a change, and place her on probation instead, and make her Boodikka's partner. But they aren't giving her her own battery, she has to recharge from Boodikka,which is a little on the weird side, but hey, they're Guardians.

In the meantime, Tomar and Graf Toren are looking for Hannu, who is overdue, and eventually find his ship, not to mention a badly wounded Hannu, who manages to mumble that Laira is now a Red Lantern. Oh, WHO could have seen THAT coming?

Stupid Guardians.

In the meantime, I'm REALLY pining for some Guy/Kyle fun, not to mention the new bar, and just when are we going to see Guy and Tora's date anyway?

I was very surprised they picked up the red lantern thing in GL corps. They runa tight ship over at gl comics.

Man, this book was page after page of lesbo on lesbo joke panels. I couldn't stop laughing at the audactity of what the artist kept putting there.

Stephen, they do inDEED run a tight ship over at the Green Lantern books. One of the things that made the whole Sinestro Corps War so good, I think.

Gyuss, er...I didn't notice. "?"

Well Tomasi was the editor, so he must have known what Geoff was planning. Also this 2-parter was written by Serling Gates, who's kind of Geoff Johns' protege.
