Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #3

All Will Be Well! Well...maybe not.


Dang it if that isn't a pretty cover. Of course, Guy doesn't actually attack Warth, he's too busy trying to fight off Bleez, while Arisia and Kilowog dance around trying to get a shot off, and Warth stands there looking QUITE bemused at all the antics of these crazy aliens. Like all Red Lanterns, Bleez is a hard to handle, but finally, Warth gets a hold of her, and tones things down long enough for them to understand exactly why she's attacking Guy. He wanted to get the red purged from his system, but she, (and Atrocitus) think that this would be a bad idea, and that he'll NEED both the red and green power to take down the baddie.

Makes a certain amount of sense, no? Meanwhile though, Warth is puzzled that the power levels of the assembled Green Lanterns are only at 99%. In his presence, their power levels should be off the charts, not to mention his own. Something peculiar is going on, and we finally get a hint of exactly what it is that Atrocitus, Ganthet and Guy are going up against.

The HIGHLY unpleasant individual we saw last issue, is still hanging out in the uncharted regions, siphoning power off all those unfortunate telepaths, and using that power to suck tiny amounts of power from the Green Lantern Corps, not to mention manipulating them a little bit. Oh, and that tiny ragged little person with the green chains, who has imprisoned both Ion and Parallax shows up, and he/she seems to be in cahoots with Zardor, the bad guy. I STILL think that it might be Sayd, and if that's the case, then poor Ganthet is in for a bit of heartbreak. I suppose that it is also possible that it might be Scar...she DID seem to die a little too easily back in Blackest Night.

Oh, and Sodam Yat wakes up, after being freed from the sun of Daxam. It's been turned red again, so all the Daxamites lost their powers, which pisses quite a few of them off. Sodam has been saved by a ragtag bunch of freedom fighters who think that he's just the bee's knees. He's also apparently being hunted down by the powers that be...including his own father. Geez, he's a real creep. I think that Guy and Soranik may have Sodam still beat in the rotten Father category, but he's pretty obnoxious.

So anyway...Guy decides NOT to purge the red from himself, and Warth warns him that there may be...consequences. And off they go.

The story is nicely advancing, and the art is awfully pretty. I have to say that Fernando Pasarin has chosen to give Guy a nice Joe Staton nose, which is quite appropriate

Good stuff!

It's about time Sodam woke up! Geez, how long has he been out? A year?

Did anyone notice that the little ragged person has his/her hands wrapped up like a mummies? I'm trying to remember exactly what happened to Scar, and if that's a clue. Or if the writers just needed a convenient way to hide blue skin. :)

I guess it will be nice to have Sodam back. Arisia seems to miss him. My general impression of Kilowog and Guy is that they think he's a decent Lantern, but a bit of a showboat.

The identity of our mysterious floating creature is QUITE mysterious. I could be Scar...or even Sayd, or someone else entirely.

Maybe it's Oberon! I haven't seen him in quite a while.

While MD Bright is most likely how I"m picturing Hal (Grey temples, dammit, GREY!), Joe Staton's my go to Guy guy. It's a nice touch.

I rather miss MD Bright. He did a good job on everybody. But yes, Staton was the quinetessential Guy artist...until Pat Gleason came along. And although I miss him terribly, I have to say that Fernando seems to be doing a pretty decent job. I love the nose that he's given to Guy. JUST like Statons
