And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERNS 5

I’m not a fan of Red Lanterns or all-fighting issues, but writer Sam Humphries won me over this time with clever, witty and insightful mental dialogue captions from the two Green Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. They are facing a horde of Red Lanterns as well as their master, Atrocitus, and the Hell Tower he’s constructing to bring a horrible Red Dawn to Earth. Many regular folks are already consumed with Rage, including Jessica’s sister. They can’t possibly overcome the odds against them, and Jessica’s fears are crippling her, but Simon is giving it his all, and coming up with some kind of new power in the process. Great writing, nice art by Robson Rocha, Eduardo Pansica, Jay Leisten and Julio Ferreira.
