Green Lantern #37 Review

Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Ivan Reis

Combined with last month's issue and the recent Rage of the Red Lanterns one-shot, Green Lantern is finally kicking ass and taking names again. After months of merely being "good" and seemingly treading water, Johns and Reis have exploded with non-stop action and it finally feels like the same book we were reading back during the Sinestro Corps War.

For those out of the loop, Sinestro has been captured by the Red Lanterns and Hal, who's teamed up with the first Blue Lanterns, is caught in the middle. With this issue, we're treated to what I would equate to the Sinestro Corps War Special that kicked off the SCW epic. Hal has arrived to find Sinestro crucified by the Red Lanterns and is quickly ambushed by said Red Lanterns. Just when things look bleak, the Sinestro Corps arrives to free their leader, leading to what will surely be the first of many multi-coloured battles in the months to come.

While it sounds like the issue was merely an action junkies wet dream, there's all kinds of foreshadowing and hints about the upcoming war of light, ranging from Atrocitus' predictions of Hal betraying and killing the Guardians, which even Sinestro claims will happen, to the Blue Lanterns outright statements that Hal must become a Blue Lantern.

Oh, and we mustn't forget the shock ending where Hal, in a fit of rage after the death of former Green Lantern Laira at the hands of Sinestro, is selected as the newest Red Lantern, ending our issue with an image of him wielding both a green and red ring in his spiffy new Red Lantern Corps costume.

Verdict - Must Read. It's great to see Green Lantern return to the heights it once reached and the past few issues have renewed my faith and interest in the upcoming Blackest Night.
