And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN 44

Hal Jordan as a wandering space cop is well done in this issue. Landing at a space port on the planet Gallun with a reluctant sidekick in the criminal he’s taken into custody, Trapper, Hal finds everyone hiding from him. The reason soon becomes clear, the spaceport has been taken over by a criminal gang with powers who are preying on any ships who land there. Ships check in, but they don’t check out, as the saying goes. Robert Venditti’s script and art by Billy Tan and Martin Coccolo and others make this an entertaining action thriller that has little to do with Green Lantern power, but lots to do with clever, quick thinking and actions. The villains are creative and entertaining, too.

Recommended.
