And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL 4

Billed as “Tales of Hal Jordan,” the first half of this comic tells what happened when some of the Green Lantern Corps tracked down the renegade Hal. It’s a battle of powers, but also of hearts and minds, as the GLs are Hal’s former companions and friends. The second half features an evil super-villain and his gang — or are they more like bounty hunters? — who are also after Hal and his current companions. The writing by Robert Venditti is pretty good, if predictable. The art is by Pascal Alixe and Martin Coccolo. Not sure who did what, but while the art in the first half is fine, I don’t care for some of the art in the second half, where it gets very soft and hazy, like looking through gauze.

Mildly recommended.
