One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Lantern Corps #46

GOOD THING: Some very tense emotional scenes here, with Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner being confronted by the Black Lanterns of the women they loved and lost.

BAD THING: The artwork is amazing, but the layouts leave something to be desired. It gets a little confusing what panel comes before another at times.

The Final Verdict: A wonderful character-driven issue for Guy and Kyle and some good action scenes, beautifully depicted. Only some odd choices in the panel layouts keeps it from being perfect.


  1. Is it wrong that I almost lost control laughing when it came to Kyle's love and her current form as a Lantern? It was so freaking weird to see it in such context.

  2. I dunno. Given that a lot of the Black Lanterns seem to be manifestations rather than zombies, it makes an odd sort of sense that Alex would manifest as a black refrigerator. Especially since their goal is to inspire strong emotions.
    It does make me wonder if Kyle tenses up whenever he goes to get the orange juice though...

  3. Actually, Jade showed up earlier in the series. But yes - glad that Alex put in an appearance. Sort of.

  4. Outside of M.U.S.C.L.E. there is no context where an attacking outer space refrigerator manifestation of the dead makes sense.
    Ok, maybe Ghostbusters.
