One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #5
BAD THING: The "rookie gets killed and drives Killowog into a rage" sub-plot has been done to death. Granting that it is done well here does not change that fact...
GOOD THING: The storyline is finally starting to come together and the mysteries are starting to be explained. I'll leave most of this in the dark (the better to inspire you to read this book) but I will say that it is a nice touch to have Guy Gardner - not exactly a dreamer or a navel-gazer - being the Cassandra figure in this story, cursed with strange visions that nobody else believes and he may be powerless to prevent coming about.
The Final Verdict: Still an enjoyable read, though some of the subplots are a bit repetitive. Perhaps the most enjoyable of the Green Lantern books at this time.
