Ah, here's this week's Runt of the Litter, the comic at the bottom of my new comic pile, AND, much like Ultimates, a series that I'll probably be dropping after this issue. Sorry, Kyle Rayner or no, Larfleeze as a major player in this series means I'll be dropping it. Here's hoping Larfleeze is just the villain of the month here, but I have a sinking suspicion that isn't the case...
Green Lantern: New Guardians #4:
What Happened: Larfleeze and the rest of the New Guardians continue to fight against the Guardians of Oa(for some reason). Ganthet tries to reason with Kyle, telling him that if he stayed the Guardians would try to figure out why the rings from the others Corps went to him, but Kyle decides to throw his lot in with Larfleeze since he didn't like what the Guardians did to Ganthet. With that, the New Guardians head to Larfleeze's homeworld and learn from Larfleeze's personal Guardian, Sayd, that a white hole had opened up in space and that a ship the size of a galaxy emerged, stealing Lantern rings from the various Corps's. Needless to say, it was in the best interest of the New Guardians to explore this strange ship.
The Good: This comic was a fast read. The cliffhanger was good.
The Bad: I have zero interest reading a series that has Larfleeze as a major character. None of the New Guardians, save for Kyle, are characters I want to read about. Larfleeze was in this issue.
The Verdict: Adiós, New Guardians! You will be yet another DC series I toss on the scrapheap! I'm sorry, but I'm not going to read a series that stars Larfleeze. Not even for Kyle.
Score: 5 out of 10.Sorry, Kyle, but not even YOU could save this title for me.
