Body

Robert Venditti continues his cosmic status quo changes on Green Lantern and thus far everything is looking good.

Issue #27 brings continuing complications as Mogo tries its best to emulate Oa, to somewhat uneven results. Good with walls, the Doc says, not so well with pillows. I love that in the way of big-bads, the Lantern crew are giving us non-ring slingers, something I have been calling for for a long time.

So now we have shape-shifters, and I could not be happier!

The Durlans may appear to be jerks, but there is definitely a method to their madness, and it begins here with one Hal Jordan. I love the detail Venditti is showing us with the other GLs and I was emotionally so glad to see Saint Walker, one of my favorites, doing well on Mogo.

After the great run by Billy Tan (look at the wonderful cover), Dave Eaglesham, who did such a eye-popping job on Fantastic Four with Jonathan Hickman, just does not cut the cosmic muster here. Oh, there are no real complains except that everything looks … well, flat. Not good for a character whose playground is deep space.

Great story, so-so art and a continuation of his own legacy see this effort by Venditti get a somewhat unenthusiastic thumbs-up. Looking forward to that GL/RL double issue!
