And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN 45

This issue is largely a long battle between Hal Jordan and Black Hand. That wouldn’t normally interest me much, but there are some interesting angles to this battle. First, Black Hand has become “infected” with the anti-life equation, so everything he touches turns to dead stone. Even, it now seems, the green power ring constructs of Hal. It’s not instant in that case, but Hal has to be very careful not to let Hand’s power touch him. Kind of like trying to combat the legendary King Midas when everything he touches turns to gold. Also, William Hand’s madness leads to some fairly entertaining dialogue between the two of them. I can’t say I loved this story, but it did keep me entertained.

Recommended.
