Green Lantern:Lost Army #1
I had been quite curious about this new version of the Green Lantern Corps, and a bit nervous at the same time. Things are in a bit of a mess after all the hoohah with the New Gods, and such. For a reason that isn't actually addressed in this issue, a number of Lanterns including John Stewart, Kilowog and Arisia, as well as some of the newbie find themselves way out in the middle of nowhere.
When your turf is the Universe, the middle of nowhere takes on new meaning. They are fighting unknown assailants, they are lost, they can't contact Salaam or Mogo or even the new new Guardian's, and worst of all, they can't seem to find their lanterns for a recharge. Things are looking pretty desperate. Oh, and for some reason, they also seem to have picked up a pre-crazy Krona.
What else could possibly happen?
Well... Guy Gardner shows up!
They are all confused of course, but not as much as Guy, who was just hanging out on earth, sans green ring, sans red ring, sans any rings, when he finds himself not only in the middle of nowhere, but wielding both a green AND red ring! Needless to say, they all all just a tad confused.
So very very confused.
And then they run into a giant red pyramid shaped thingie, that another blogger pointed our as being something left over from the previous Universe, and therefore one of Relics little toys.
Heck, now I'm confused. But, it must be said... intrigued!
Relic has been showing up a fair amount lately, so I guess this makes some sense. I assume that some of the mysteries will be revealed eventually, and in the meantime I have some of my favorite characters back together doing their thing, and I am reasonably happy. Plus the artwork is very nice. Jesus Saiz draws a purty Guy, that's for sure. Cullen Bunn seems to have a plan. Maybe we can sit back and actually have some self-contained stories and no giant crossovers for a while.
This was... good!
