And Then I Read: GREEN LANTERN CORPS 25

This is an excellent story, but it’s not a Green Lantern story. It follows John Stewart as a marine sent to Gotham City during a major storm to help evacuate people stranded in a sports stadium. Think New Orleans. Complicating things are a gang using the Batman villain Anarky as a model to terrorize the people inside the stadium and hold them, and soon the marines, as hostages. If DC still did war comics on a regular basis, this would fit right in. The power struggle and an ideological battle are played out in human terms with no super-powers, and lots of gray areas on both sides. Fine writing by Van Jensen and Robert Venditti, fine art by Victor Frujiniu, Ivan Fernandez and Allan Jefferson with a trio of inkers.
