And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN 40

Writer Robert Venditti had a difficult assignment here. This run of GREEN LANTERN is ending, but the main character Hal Jordan is not, nor is the Green Lantern Corps. Any closure will be brief and fleeting. What happens is, he quits as Corps leader, intending to let the Corps’ recent bad name fall on his leadership,  and attempts to take a kind of all-access power battery and leave with it. To do that he has to go through Kilowog, and much of the story is about that battle, and their friendship. Not a bad solution to this story problem. The art by Billy Tan and Mark Irwin is generally good, but they aren’t as convincing with civilian Hal as they are with Green Lantern Hal. In all, a pretty good read.

Recommended.
