An entire issue of poorly developed lectures and ineffective exercises, culminating in a catastrophe so vast, there’s no way these self-involved newbies can’t get on board. Yes, it has political overtones, folks. Consider yourself warned.
We’re here at the birth of the Green Lantern Corps, and no doubt Simon and Jessica will be a bit of a paradox by influencing an entity which has come to define them as heroes, thereby creating Moebius strip of culture. Which came first, the hero or the ring?
The artwork is typical for what we’ve come to expect from the series, as Pansica and Ferreira develop a firmer grasp on depicting the near-magical scope of the power rings, as well as the cosmos at large. Humphries, however, may have stumbled into a rut, saying that a GL needs to have imagination in their constructs. But his loop hole is not so much him saying it, as having Jessica (a less experienced GL) say it.
