Reviewer’s Comments:
Since solicits began for the War of the Green Lanterns, DC has been promising the death of one of the human Green Lanterns. This should come as little surprise, as characters come and go from the mortal plane almost daily within the DC Universe. However, the events in Green Lantern Corps #60 come as a little more shocking, a little more sad, and with a lot more consequences than the norm.

Yes, there is a death in this issue. It’s outrageous, upsetting, and definitely worth reading. If you haven’t been reading the Green Lantern books, but are interested in starting, I would say you should probably wait another month for this event to wrap, because I have a feeling there’s going to be a very pretty reboot to match the demand from the new Green Lantern film.

That said, I am continually impressed by Geoff Johns’ storytelling. How he manages to weave such complex stories on multiple books every month seems an impossible feat, and War of the Green Lanterns is no exception. A Rogue Guardian, Krona, has taken control of the spectrum’s entities, placing Parallax back in the power battery to control all of the Green Lanterns who have not overcome Parallax infection previously. He has also infected the Guardians with the other entities, seeking to bring down the Corps and show the Guardians how weak they are when they do not embrace emotions. In this issue of the Corps, Kyle and John have been charged with stopping the spread of Krona’s infection.

While I usually hate crossovers, especially those spanning across more than two books, this has been plotted quite beautifully, with little variance, to create a seamless story; the team on this issue is no exception. Bedard writes clearly and gives players the proper characterizations as they battle between their will and their newly embraced emotions. The pencils, inks, and color are clean, crisp, and well suited to a story where there are often 1,000 things happening at once on the page. In short, it’s visually pleasing to read.

Overall, this issue has brought what will likely be the biggest blow to the Corps, and the consequences will likely soon not be forgotten. War of the Green Lanterns comes to a close in next month’s Green Lantern, and while I hope that the franchise takes a little break from the earthquake of blockbuster events that they have been throwing at us since the Sinestro Corps appeared, I have a feeling that things will not be the same when the dust settles.
