So far, so good as part 3 of the War of the Green Lanterns continues. Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner square off at the Green House. Who will come out on top?
I'm living how this story arc is working for each of these books. Emerald Warriors
follows the antics of Guy Gardner, Kilowog
, and Arisia
. While this war hasn't broken out completely, we're seeing the beginnings of it through another Corps member's eyes. Hal finally finds out about Guy, Ganthet
, and Atrocitus
' blood pact, which sends Hal and Guy into a fist fight because they are both a bit under the influence of the impurity and Krona
. There's a lot of great character development between Hal and Guy here and a ton of great action. This book flows so well. The writing and the art compliment each other perfectly. It's still the opening to this story, so we don't know exactly where it is going yet, but as I said before, "so far, so good."
The whole issue is Guy and Hal fighting and talking. While it plays out extremely well on the page as the two develop a battle plan, it may turn some people off. In addition, it's part three to a story, so you need to be reading Green Lantern
and Green Lantern Corps
for this issue to make more sense.
This is quickly becoming my favorite of the Green Lantern books. It's great to see another side to this massive team of "space police," and even better to see Guy Gardner, Kilowog, and Arisia lead their own book. You will not be able to put this book down. This may not be the best place to jump on though for new readers. Being that this is part three of a story, you may be a little confused to what is happening and why. However, you really should pick up the other two books because I'm loving this storyline, and moreso, I'm loving Emerald Warriors.
