It’s the halfway point of the Uprising event and, shock of shocks, we are actually starting to see some long needed maturity on the part of New 52 Hal Jordan as the skirmish continues.

In Green Lantern #32, writer Robert Venditti really gives us some great scenes with an evolving Hal, especially the interrogation of the Prixiam of the Clann. When Green Lantern discovers the secret behind the master plan of the Durlans and the cosmic chess game that is being played, you can feel his multiple range of emotions. Good thing he is still not the White Lantern, lol.

(For the unitiated, since many (like myself) are not following the whole of the event, the long-standing master plan of the Durlans calls for a split with their allies of fortune, the Clann and Khund, once these forces begin to question the strategy of the foes. The results are spectacular and add to the drama of the event.)

Venditti has really put his stamp on this book and on this franchise, with wide-scope and effective plotting and deep characterization. This perceptible evolution of Hall is a most welcome addition to that.

Billy Tan, of course, continues to knock it out of the ballpark with his artwork here. Kudos for his consistent excellence at showing crowded panels that do not seem crowded.

All in all, Green Lantern and its franchise seem in safe hands these days.
