Green Lantern #60
Well, things just seem to be going from bad to worse. However when dealing with Green Lanterns, that just seems to be par for the course. Gosh, how many MORE cliches can I jam into a sentence?
As you ALL know, Hal has been cavorting around on Earth with any number of members of the other color corps...and some of the Earth heroes aren't exactly thrilled about it, which is why Barry showed up, to find out just what the heck Hal thinks that he's up to. And he promptly gets possessed by Parallax.
Well, THAT'S a bummer!
Parallax seems to be enjoying taking Barry's body for a ride, and as usual he starts taunting Hal. Parallax really seems to enjoy taunting Hal. Hal manages to get a few good digs in himself, when who should show up but the little bandaged ragamuffin that has been collecting as many of the entities as he or she can. And here I must admit that I was completely wrong in my identification of the little troublemaker. I was SURE that it was Sayd...but it's not. And I suppose that I'm relieved.
More taunting ensues. There is a LOT of taunting in this issue. That's ok, I enjoy taunting. And to make things even better a bunch of the remaining entities and their avatars show up! The new Compassion guy with all the arms! St. Walker and Adara! Larfleeze! A bunch of Indigos including Black Hand! Hail hail, the gang's all here.
Well...except for Atrocitus and Sinestro who are still on the hunt for the Butcher. One of Sinestro's cohorts gets on the line and tells him about Kyle and some of the Corps going off to Qward to rescue Soranik. Sinestro looks pretty bored, and sneers that he knows all about it, and what's it to him, when Romat-Ru says that the Weaponer is demanding his presence or else it's curtains for his daughter. Apparently this actually gets Sinestro's attention, and off he goes...presumably to be showing up in Green Lantern Corps, which is rather nice. I love it when all the books intertwine like this, withOUT it being a huge crossover.
Meanwhile, getting the whole bunch together to fight the little guy may just have been a tactical mistake, as he takes control of EVERYBODY! Oh, and we just happen to find out who he is. And yes it's definitely a he.
Why it's Krona of all people! And is HE in a pissy mood!
Fabulous art as usual, and some very interesting twists and turns to the story! Gosh, I love this book. On of the few places where Hal isn't acting like a jerk.
