And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN #8

Writer Grant Morrison and artist Liam Sharp are having fun visiting their favorite GREEN LANTERN history. This one takes on the GL/GA Team as written by Denny O’Neil and drawn by Neal Adams. “Space Junkies” invading the Pacific Northwest? Giant alien versions of both heroes? Aliens trading drugs for human souls? Demonic assassins from a world where murder is expected? A giant arrow shot to the moon? Okay, it’s full of odd things, this comic, but it does have some resonance for me particularly in the dialog between the heroes, and their unusual teamwork. The art by Liam is eerily similar to Adams at times, too. The plot does not hold together particularly well, but it’s entertaining all the same.

Recommended.
