Green Lantern Corps #30

Back to Blogging! Most of the heavy work is done, boxes are packed and stuff is in storage. Of course now I have to UNpack everything, and find places for all this stuff. On the plus side however, I am now the proud possessor of a melon baller and a lemon zester.

But onto Green Lantern stuff.

There are two plotlines running in the latest issues of Green Lantern Corps, and as is proper with a title such as the Sins of the Star Sapphires, Love is the main theme. We have renegade Sinestro Corp member Kryb still running amok and murdering Green Lanterns and stealing their babies. We also have the Guardians deciding that now would be a good time to go over and have a little talk with the Star Sapphires and see what it is that they are up to. Naturally, they pick Guy Gardner, Arisia and Sodam Yat as their escorts. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

LOVE the sunglasses. And the way that Guy is ogling the behind of the Zamaron that they are following. He really is incorrigable.

The Zamarons take the Guardians and Lanterns past a whole passel of Sinestro rings that are being drained of their powers by their own violet crystals...just as a way of rubbing in the fact that they are busy too. The Guardians are getting a little huffy at this point, and our favorite crazy Guardian, Scar is busy whispering sweet nothings in Yat's ear...such as if things go haywire, he's supposed to blow up the violet battery and surroundings.

Anyway...Queen Aga'po shows up and there is a bit of preliminary posturing. Soon enough however, they decide to dispense with the pleasantries and get to the nitty-gritty. The Guardians are pissed that the Zamarons are throwing their weight around. The Zamarons are getting just a tad fed up with the "emotionless" jihad of the Guardians. The Guardians neither understand nor trust love, and Queen Aga'po makes a salient point when she points out that the Guardians own corps are all willing to love.

She also points out that the Guardians previous ventures with the Manhunters didn't exactly turn out too well, and that the whole idea of the Alpha Lantern is a little demented as well. The Guardians huff and puff and bloviate for a bit. Then the Zamarons show them that they've captured several of the Sinestro Corp female baddies, have encased them in crystal and are trying to "show them the light". The Green Lanterns are justifiably a bit skeptical of this whole idea. It all ends of course with the Guardians telling the Zamarons to knock it off, and the Zamarons telling the Guardians to stuff it. Meanwhile, Kryb is up to her old tricks, murdering GL's and stealing their babies. Kyle, Amnee, Soranik and Mr. Amnee are hot on her trail. For some bizarre reason, their response to Kryb is disturbing to the Guardians who seem to have been drinking a whole LOT of stupid juice lately.

Banning physical relationships and love between Green Lanterns? Oh THAT'S going to go over really well. What's next, not having families? Parents or siblings? What about the Lanterns that are already married? For the Love Of God, What About Hal Jordan, and his Loins of Desire? Or Guy and Ice?

The Guardians are about to have the biggest strike on their hands in their entire four billion year history.

Did Patrick Gleason have a new inker this month? I didn't love the art as much as I usually do and I think that's why.

And I think Guy is finally starting to challenge Kyle as my favorite GL. You can really only resist him for so long.

To me, it reads like the new directive might only cover relationships between two (or more, I suppose) Lanterns, not between a Lantern and a "civilian"--not nearly as big a deal. On the other hand, that doesn't follow all that well from the evidence leading in to the decision to issue the directive, so the phrasing may just be iffy.

The new law may only apply to relationships BETWEEN Lanterns...but who knows how long that will last? The Guardians seem to be making mistake after mistake after mistake.

Yay new law! Now Kyle and Soranik can't be a couple and she can not die!

Still, they're really not thinking through this whole fact that they have one of their own deliberately trying to undermine everything, they're not that forward thinking. They seem to almost want the manhunters back at this point.

Not to mention they plan to outlaw both "physical relationships" and "love". How will they define those things? Will patting someone on the back constitute a physical relationship? Will expressing concern over a comrade's well-being get you court-martialed?

I vote we start a petition to make the sunglasses a permanent part of Guy's wardrobe.

Oh this new law is going to open up SO many cans of worms, metaphorically speaking.

And yes, Guy does look fabulous in shades. SO fabulous.

I'm pretty sure it's Kryb, not Kryp. Say it out loud. Gives the character an interesting dimension. Loving the concept. Kryb does appear to have a very twisted affection for the babies she(?) takes.

You know for a bunch of logical geniuses with millenia of experiance to drawn on, the Guardians sure to get written as pack of stumbling idjits fairly often. I'm pretty sure if I put Bill Gates, Steven Hawking and a couple dozen other geniuses, geni, genius? Anyway a couple dozen uber-smart dudes in charge of the GLC they wouldn't screw up as damn often...

Oops. Sorry about the Kryp for Kryb. Fixed it. I know how to do that now!

For shame Guardians. We geeks all know Love is the most powerful force in all of Universal Creation. It will save the day.

Why can't all comics be as interesting and well written as Green Lantern Comics? Oh, yeah, that Johns fellow.
