One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #2

GOOD THING: Peter Tomasi continues to write the characters as well as he did when he was the writer on Green Lantern Corps. What is more, it looks like Guy will not be totally alone on his quest - with old friends Killowog and Arisia coming along for the ride.

BAD THING: We're still not any closer to getting some of the big mysteries answered, such as what is Guy holding back that has him thinking nobody among the Earth-born Lanterns - especially Hal - is ever going to trust him again and what kind of deal did he and Ganthet make with the red Lanterns.

And while we do learn a little bit more about the mysterious villain who first showed up in the previous issue - enough to know that he isn't Bolphunga the Unrelenting (as I thought he was) and that he may be part of the same race as Despero - we still don't know much.

The Final Verdict: While the road before us is still somewhat unclear, it's gratifying to see that this will still be an ensemble book of sorts and that Tomasi hasn't forgotten how to write the Green Lantern Corps after a few months away from them. And the art is good too!


  1. Someone could do an interesting story about how Arisia always seems to have a thing for these Super Alpha Males of the Green Lanterns. First Hal, then Sodam Yat.

  2. I think they are doing that story now. :)
