Green Lantern Corps #18


That was...underwhelming.  In fact, it is the exact same story that was told about Guy last month, and the same story that was told about Kyle last month, except with John and Fatality thrown into the mix.  I love Peter Tomasi, and I think that his Batman and Robin story this month was a small masterpiece...but this is not his best.

Once again, the First Lantern, has captured both John and Fatality and is putting the two of them through the same old "everything in your past happened differently" routine.  Once again, I'm not even sure that some of the things in John's past could even have happened in this new timeline, but what the heck. 

It doesn't help particularly, that Fernando Pasarin doesn't do the artwork this issue either, but instead it is drawn by Chris Cross, who may be a perfectly nice person...but I didn't enjoy it particularly. 

This didn't really do a whole lot to advance the story, except to establish that the First Lantern is a jerk of monumental proportions, and that he is taking great glee in attacking some of my favorite Lanterns and making their lives miserable.  I AM quite looking forward to seeing  him get his well-deserved comeuppance.

I like comeuppances.
