No Fear

"No Fear" from Green Lantern vol.5 #5 (DC, 2012) by Geoff Johns, Doug Mahnke, Mark Irwin and Keith Champagne
Another Lantern that should be getting some respect is Sinestro, probably the coolest thing about the New52 Lantern book, though not enough to reverse the trend that led me to finally dropping the title,event-exhausted. I even bristled at the idea that Green Lantern could just continue its bloated story arc post-Flushpoint while other favorites, not so written by DC architect Geoff Johns, ended early or suffered a reboot. It seemed unfair, and I guess that weighed into my decision as well. Now Johns is finally letting go, and I might come back into the fold. The franchise is taken over by Josh Fialkov (on GLC and Red Lanterns) and Robert Venditti (on Green Lantern and New Guardians). As it turns out, I really like both these guys, and it sounds like they're taking the Lantern books back to space cops as opposed to space military. It's been Corps against Corps for too long, and with some jerky Guardians in charge, it's hard to remember these guys are meant to be heroes. I look forward to the next phase...

  1. Gosh, but Sinestro is just a fabulous character.

    At first I was terrified by the departure of Johns and Tomasi, but maybe...maybe it is for the best. I do think that the mult-colored corps and the perpetual wars of light have run their course.
