Yet Bolphunga’s challenge to her – or to any Green Lantern – somehow rings hollow. Could it be there is a deeper secret behind his arrival on Earth? And could there yet be a deeper secret behind that? Oooh, yes, a lot layers to this onion.
Meanwhile, matters aren’t going so well for Simon’s recent ally, the Ungaran commander who helped rescue the Molites when their star went ka-boom. She’s got a mystery of her own on her hands, but that’s a story for another day (another issue, anyway).
Returning artists Barberi and Santorelli bring a fresh and oh-so-effective look to our favorite space cops. Because that’s what Simon and Jessica are. They’re cops, unlike Hal Jordan who is more of a super-hero. Which is not to diminish Simon and Jessica, but that distinction affects how the series is written, and why it’s significantly different from other entries in the Green Lantern franchise.
