Green Lantern Corps has been one of my favorite books in the past couple of years, so for me it is quite beneficial that this book was not truly rebooted with the rest of the DCnU. For new readers however, this is probably not a book they can immediately enjoy.
The art in this book reflects what I would expect to see in a Green Lantern comic book. When a Lantern uses their power I would I would expect to see a bright light illuminating all around them, and whatever construct they have created. In short, to make a Green Lantern book look good, the colorist has a very important job. The art team for this book does not disappoint. (4.5 out of 5)
Picking up after the War of the Green Lanterns, it seems that all of the Lanterns from Earth are struggling to find their place in the world. Generically, this is an interesting dynamic that they are introducing, that I would have expected to see years ago. I would expect any space police officer spending a lot of time in space would lose touch with people on Earth. They are not on Earth long enough to have a job to obtain money, pay their rent, or even see the latest summer movies. It seems that this dynamic is being addressed in this reboot, and our heroes are struggling being back at home, and are looking for some excitement. Of course, the universe is ready to help them fulfill their desire.
So far I like where this book is heading, and I am looking forward to the next issue. Unlike the Green Lantern series, this is a book that I do not want to wait for trade, and I look forward to the book next month. (4 out of 5)
