Review: Green Lanterns #26

If you’re looking for Simon or Jessica, they’re not home right now. This issue features the secret origin of Volthoom. And Rami, the Guardian. And the original power rings created at the dawn of the Green Lantern Corps.

I appreciate it when someone with a sensible vision is given the opportunity to expand on the lore of a comic book property. It’s not often such addendums add much value to the back story, but here it seems to fit nicely with the established Green Lantern lore.

Ronan Cliquet’s artwork is as dynamic as ever. I think of all the artists involved in the Green Lantern franchise, his work is my favorite, even over that of Ethan Van Sciver. There are others who have a lot going for them, but Cliquet consistently delivers. I know the current model is to feature multiple artists on a title in order to keep it on schedule, but so long as Cliquet has the first chair.

My only disappointment is that the two Green Lantern titles are not so tightly bound to one another. The impact of one is not felt in the other, and I would like to see a much greater cohesiveness between the two series.

Rating: 8/10
