|61||11/24/10||Green Lantern: Mosaic, Vol. 1-2||(Blog) (Forum)||Green Lantern: Mosaic||(Back) (Next)|
We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Green Lantern: Mosaic, Vol. 1, .|
|Vol. 1 Collecting 11 Issues:|
|Vol. 2 Collecting 12 Issues:||Green Lantern: Mosaic #7-18.|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
The first TPB would collect the first eleven issues of that story, from a new beginning in Green Lantern #13, to the four issue "Mosaic" story arc in GL #14-17, to GL: Mosaic #1-6. The second TPB would collect Green Lantern: Mosaic #7-18. For the covers, I'd go with Green Lantern #14, for Volume One, and Green Lantern: Mosaic #18, for Volume 2. They're both shots of John Stewart towering over others. That seems appropriate for where the story goes.
I always thought Green Lantern: Mosaic was a cool title, but at the time, I think it got cut a little short. Stewart evolved into something a little more than human, and it seemed like that was supposed to go somewhere, but instead, it wrapped up with #18 - just a month after the destruction of Coast City, and two months before Hal went over the edge in Emerald Twilight... In fact, now that I look at the timing of it, I'm left wondering if John Stewart wasn't heading towards becoming Parallax, before DC decided to have Hal fill that role, in connection with Reign of the Supermen. I always thought it was weird that Green Lantern was involved with Reign, so it being a sudden change from where Mosaic was going would make a lot of sense to me... I could be wrong, of course. Either way, I'd love to see these two TPB's come out, collecting the whole Mosaic saga.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
