And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN 12

The return of William Hand, one of the driving forces behind the “Blackest Night” crossover event, is a kind of repeat of that theme in miniature, though it does present some nice character moments, and some creepy ones as well. The horde of zombies is certainly nothing new, and I find I’m pretty tired of zombies these days (never a big fan to begin with). The real thrust of the plot is toward the next big storyline, and this issue helpfully provides a brief summary of what’s led up to it in all the GL titles. Next stop, the GL Annual.

The art by Renato Guedes and Jim Calafiore (on separate sections) is fine, though not as good as regular artist Doug Mahnke, who is probably busy elsewhere.

Recommended.
