Quick Thoughts on: Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #2

Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #2: Writer: Peter Tomasi. Pencils: Fernando Pasarin.

Quick Review: While Guy Gardner is wondering how his actions will affect the way he is looked at by the universe at large, Arisia is having nightmares about Sodam Yat and Kilowog is acting moody. Why do I mention these three Lanterns? Because they have all been tasked with heading into the unknown sectors to bring some law and order to the worlds therein. While the trio of Lanterns are preparing for their trip, an enormously powerful telepath named Zardor is plotting against the Green Lantern Corps from within the unknown sector. Before they leave the known universe, Guy decides to go to the homeworld of the Blue Lanterns in order to be purged of the influence of the Red Power Ring he wore during Blackest Night. This issue ends with one of the Red Lanterns attacking Guy and warning him not to purge the Red Lantern influence.

Quick Thoughts: This was a big ol' set-up issue. Nothing more and nothing less. Peter is setting the stage for the next several issues, which is both good and bad. It's good because the upcoming storylines look pretty solid, but bad because this issue suffered due to the extensive scene setting. Hopefully next issue will give us a bit more action and a little less talking.

Score: 7 out of 10.The Green Lantern oath, always a good way to waste a page in a GL comic book!
