Another fantastic issue.

I'm hoping this whole Father-Emerson-Magus-Island-Komodo conspiracy doesn't turn out to be some ridiculous reveal, though, but I like it so far.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this weird "super-villain dad" angle they've got with Komodo.

And the little Animal Man easter egg with Fyff's shirt was great.

Yeah, that was an epic Easter Egg thrown in there :)

The whole super hero dad angle was interesting. Curious if that will end up playing out in later issue. Imagine that is going to produce a twisted daughter lol

Seems to me as though Hal will become a Black Lantern, and then Kyle will revive him using White Lantern powers. This will most likely return them both to Green Lantern state and set everything back to status quo just as Johns leaves the title. I will not be disappointed with this outcome, I just hope that something lasting comes from it.

Yeah, kind of what I was thinking will happen. I'm wondering if we will see the end of the guardians and the actual "New Guardians" become the watchers of the universe. There is also the possibility that the guardians that were guarding the First Lantern end up replacing the current guardians that have basically gone rogue. I'm curious how Johns ties everything together in the end. I'm sure it will end with a big bang.

I just don't get where this First Lantern arc is going. I mean, it's cool what's going on with Hal and Sinestro and Simon but what exactly happened to the Guardians? I know the 3rd army is pretty much toast but what about the Guardians? What's the status of the Corps right now?

Well the story is basically him feeding off of all the lanterns/people to recharge his powers and then his play is to unmake reality, which in turn he remakes it however he sees fit. In this issue you get a sense that Sinestro hasn't changed a whole lot (still prideful, arrogant, etc). Baz is still finding his way, and Hal seems to be on the path for the Black Book prophecy of becoming "The Greatest Black Lantern." Obviously it wont last long term since it has been confirmed that Hal will be the focus of the Green Lantern books once the new writer takes over. In the end it will all lead up to some massive battle I imagine with Hal coming out on top. I think there could be an off chance of Sinestro going out in a blaze of glory since the new writer basically avoided talking about if Sinestro would be back to being the "evil" yellow lantern.

It is First Lantern not White Lantern?

No, he is basically all the emotional spectrum. So he can use all the emotional powers, even more so than Kyle can as a white lantern.

Loved the issue, art improved even more in this issue. Lots of story set up in this issue, and it was cool to see it tied to the JLA series that he is also part of. Gives it the everything is connected in the world feel.

Have to say the last page with Komodo looking down at Ollie as he is falling and the black and white pannel of him killing one of Ollie's Q'core crew was amazing!Have to say the last

Things are looking good long term with Lemier on the book for Green Arrow/Ollie

"separated from the rest of the DCU"? Didn't Aquaman just have a crossover with the Justice League. I think that Aquman should spend a little bit of time on his own before Trinity War rolls around.

Well in his own book he hasn't been super connected to the normal DCU for the most part. Other than Trinity War most of his story has been contained within his own section of the DCU. I think we will probably see more of this going forward and Aquaman having to deal with the fallout of "Throne of Atlantis."

Pelletier was in my local comic shop Wednesday doing sketches. He brought in the interiors and cover from 18 and some from 19.

Tula was in the issue in a few panels. He said he had not draw Garth yet since being on the book, so that might mean Johns is going to use Tula first. Vulko was in an Atlantis prison cell, so there is more to come with him. The cover for #18 is pretty epic. The DC site just has a filler page up for it last I looked. It's Aquaman sitting on the Atlantis Throne holding his trident. Really went along with the whole "I am your king" moment from the arc. I don't recall if there were panels with the dead kings. I didn't want to memorize to much and spoil the story lol

LOVING THIS SERIES ^_^

I just hope that at some point Geoff gets around to developing the powers of Arthur's trident. This trident should be tor Aquaman what Excalibur is to King Arthur, if not Poseidon's trident. And what about the other trident of the Dead King?

Well he did set up that the "dead kings" trident can some how control the trench. I'd like to see more about Aquaman's trident. I think he will get around to it eventually. In one of the early issues (can't remember if was the trench or the start of "the others") but someone said to him that "he is going to want that back" or something to that effect about Aquaman's trident. So I imagine that Johns will get around to that story eventually.

I really enjoyed the issue, it had a very somber vibe to. Which, given what happened with throne of Atlantis it is very befitting. Murk seems like he could be a cool character given time, and I am curious what Johns does with the Sea Devils. The 2 page spread with Aquaman talking to the sea life was just a really cool scene, kind of brought him back to the ocean so to speak. Of course the dead king teasing should be pretty interesting going forward. Overall I think this was a great follow up issue to throne of Atlantis. I say this because it sorta puts Aquaman alone, and having to deal with all the big changes that happened and being away from Mera. Great work again by all involved in this book.

I enjoyed the first issue. The lineup is very interesting, which I think it will help move the story along. A lot of clashing personalities and beliefs. The Stuff with Martain Manhunter was very cool, very interested to read his back stories in this book. It will be interesting to see how this League interacts with the other as this all plays out.

@lifeboy: They haven't released a statue...but they just released today a new "New 52" Green Arrow premium figure. I picked it up at the store when I grabbed my copies of GA 17.

@anyone that doesn't like the art. I guess that's why they call it art. Its subjective. I personally LOVE this art and the colors work for me. Not every book has to have shaded colors to it. I think the high contrast simple colors set the mood for the crime-noir tone Lemire is going for. If they do end up having a dedicated colorist on the book, I'd be fine with that. I'd insist that Sorrentino stay on the book, though, his pencils are killin' it.

I also enjoyed the art, it was so much different than your standard DC comics book. The vibe from the art is fairly similar across the DCU aside from certain books (WW, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, might be another). The art fits really well with the noir/street crime vibe that the story is heading toward. It's a big change to get use to. It threw me off a bit at the start, but I thought it worked great within the context of the story. I can see why some might have a hard time getting use to it.
