And Then I Read: WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS AFTERMATH 1 & 2

This is another one of those plot-driven vehicles designed to get from point A (the end of the Green Lantern War storyline) to point B (The launch of new GL titles in the New 52). I wasn’t expecting too much from it, and it’s a good thing. Mostly what we see are GLs in post-battle trauma arguing with each other and questioning decisions made in the heat of battle and afterward. Main points of contention: the destruction of Mogo, the planet-sized GL by John Stewart (to keep Krona from creating more GLs with it) and the apparent decision by the Guardians to let Sinestro keep his GL ring that he donned during the war. It’s a crabby bunch all around in these issues for the most part. Even a visit from a Blue Lantern doesn’t help much.

There are different art teams on each issue, but I can’t say I liked the look of either book very much. Issue 2, above, has characters with disturbingly distorted faces at times, so I guess I like it less, but both issues have inconsistent art, especially given the high standard usually seen on the GL books lately.

Can’t recommend these.
