  1. #8 was probably my favourite issue of the season so far. It was nice to see Grant Morrison’s JLA earth 2 crime syndicate make an appearance (as they were originally from the antimatter universe back in the 90s, prior to infinite crisis).
    My feeling is that anti-Hal is on his way to becoming anti-parallax, so he can overthrow the qwa-masters and make everything right (wrong) again in his universe.

    It’s going to be weird going back to “normal” writers after this series is over. I’ve really been enjoying taking the time to unpack these issues and figure out just what is going on.

  2. Good show guys. This issue while was not the watermark like 7 was. It was nice insight to Anti Matter Hal. I absolutely adore Morrison and Sharp’s work on this book. Their love and care for Green Lantern history as well as the Non Metal cosmic side of DC is appreciated. It shows that these characters like Hal and the others have more stories to tell and can move them forward. Future state I don’t know what to feel. I’m all for new ideas but I dislike the notion of abandoning all the lore that came before and replacing what made the DCU the DCU. I get it it’s relevant, but at the same time I’d rather high concept ideas being explored like what Morrison is doing on GL. Rather than what feels like what Marvel is doing right now. Hope I’m completely wrong and that Future State is something interesting.
