that would be telling, wouldn’t it? Having been displaced as the writer on
Action Comics, I have to wonder if Dan Jurgens had already planned this story
in some way, only to be recycled for the benefit of the Green Lantern
franchise. Now worries. He pulls it off nicely.
consequences of what Simon has done weigh heavily upon him, and we may soon see
a lapse back into old habits. Who among us has not sought solace in the
familiar following a major mistake? It seems a natural reaction, one that will

some pay-off. But as it is part five, I fear the climax will be quick and
dirty, to fit the six-issue trade paperback format, or worse, long and drawn

steps in to finish the issue; perhaps Marco Santucci fell behind or had another
obligation. I have no issue with this, as the art flows with hardly a visual
hiccup to be heard.
