My Green Lantern Can Beat Up Your Green Lantern

Editorial - We can't move forward if we keep moving backward


As comic fans we all have our preferences for our favorite heroes and we all want to see them viewed by the general population with the same reverence that we have for them.  Who doesn't want to see a character that we identify with given the visibility and public recognition on a level somewhere close to Batman and Superman?  As Green Lantern fans we've come close to that during events like Blackest Night and certainly the period of buildup prior to the release of the Green Lantern movie saw recognition of the characters from a greater portion of the population than ever.  However, as much as those things did to unite fans to enjoy the limelight for a few months, the fallout of the movie's poor performance has left a bitter taste in our mouths and unfortunately the darker side of fanboyism has once again reared its ugly head.

Green Lantern #33 Review

One Billion Bottles of Beer on the Wall....


Green Lantern #33 is the penultimate chapter in Uprising, and writer Robert Venditti's script could have easily fooled readers into thinking it was the final chapter based on how the Green Lanterns so heroically handed the Durlans a defeat on Zezzen - that is until the rug is unceremoniously pulled out from underneath everyone in those last two panels.  As it turns out, the Green Lantern Corps may have snatched defeat from the hands of victory by the time all is said and done, but we will have to wait until next week's conclusion from Van Jensen to see how it all turns out.
