REVIEW: Green Lanterns #3

This was fucking depressing. The story has as much substance as a fart in a cloud, the characters look like they’re begging for a quick death as they are pushed through a series of events only the hardcore could possibly care about. This should be selling me on the title not making me feel sorry for the somewhat unlikable lead characters Simon Baz and the other one. There’s one or two moments when there’s a light shower to relieve the tedium but all it really does is remind you that there’s a fart lurking in that cloud somewhere all lost and un-smelled.

I wish I could figure out why it took half a dozen artists to make the book look this boring. There’s nothing clever or exciting going on and in a book about magic rings that can make anything the user can imagine, which in turn means anything the writer/artist can imagine, which in this case is a few constipated looks, unconformable poses and inconstant storytelling.

Someone needs to remind DC that it’s not the nineties any more, oh and Green Lanterns shouldn’t use guns!
