Koz's Comic Flashback
Do you remember way back in 1994? I do. Not only was it the year I graduated High School, but it was a time Video Games were truly taking over,and comics at that time were in bankruptcy or trying to reinvite themselves. They were trying anything just to keep there readers, forget about getting new ones. Shoot the industry almost went under. 90's comics were just plain out bad!! But... there were a few hidden gems out there and it all started with writer Ron Martz's Green Lantern Vol.3 Emerald Twilight issue #48-51. So much of of what goes on in todays Green Lantern books had to do with what happened in these few issues. It all starts with Coast City be destroyed. Hal Jordan uses his ring for personal gain. A Gaurdian forces Hal to give up his ring and Hal just loses it!! He kills the Gaurdian and all the other Corps members. You witness the first apperance of Parallax and Ganthet handing over the last power ring to Kyle Rayner. Just like that a new Lantern is born. I do have all the issues in vol. 3 and the series is overall pretty good. These few issues hold up very well in the in todays comic world. If you are a Green Lantern fan and have never read these issues I suggest you should. You will not be Dissapointed. They did do something right in the 90's. I give these four issues 4.5 out 5
