stormtrance1618's Green Lantern #8 - The Secret of the Indigo Tribe, Part Two review

Who Needs a Power Battery?

Sinestro and Hal have been captured and imprisoned by the Indigo Tribe. Sinestro tries to fight off getting converted into being a member of the Indigo Tribe while Hal tries to find a way to escape though he is powerless. Meanwhile, Black Hand shows up to reveal some new mysteries.

Geoff Johns apparently will never cease to amaze me when it comes to the Green Lantern universe. He nails it once again and manages to make Green Lantern feel like it did during Blackest Night. While he slowly reveals some things he also introduces new ideas and mysteries. Black Hand can channel all the emotions of the emotional spectrum and Hal uses it to his advantage. It's a moment that literally made me stop reading, smile, and shake my head in amazement. Sinestro fans need not worry though. He's not upstaged by Hal. The first few pages has a moment that will make Sinestro fans pump their fist into the air and yell "yeah"!

As great as Johns' writing is, Doug Mahnke steals the show with his art. Wow! It simply is amazing. It might even be his best work. In fact, some pages could be mistaken for Jim Lee. Yes, it's that good. Except for when Jim Lee draws him, Green Lantern has never looked better. Again, the colors also jump off the page. It goes perfectly with Mahnke's art.

Johns and Mahnke are the ultimate Green Lantern team. This is their universe. It continues to grow and continues to amaze. This is just the start of the epic sci-fi that they are bringing back to Green Lantern. Green Lantern is my favorite comic. I own every issue since Johns took over in 2005. I only recently got into Green Lantern but since I was a kid, Star Wars has been my favorite thing in sci-fi. Well, it's about to become second best because Green Lantern is just that good!

Great review! I'm a Star Wars/sci-fi fan, too. I've read Hal Jordan since the '80's, but this is the best action he's been a part of ever! Johns and Reis and now Johns and Mahnke have produced some great Green Lantern stories.

    THE GOOD: The art in this issue is stunning. I really like the sketchy feeling of the art and I think the emotion in this book is clear. I also really like the backgrounds in this issue because it definitely sculpts a bigger planet. The story in this issue reveals a whole lot about the Indigo Tribe, and even the creator. It also shows Hal thinking to get of a prison. We also get to see how you become an Indigo Tribe member. Overall, I think this issue will please the new fans it gained at the st...
