Speed Review for: Green Lantern Corps #40

Green Lantern Corps #40: Writer- Peter J. Tomasi Penciller- Patrick Gleason. This is a "Blackest Night" x-over issue.

What Happened: Arisia returns to Oa with a heavy heart after the events on Daxam, and finds herself smack-dab in the middle of the war between the Green Lanterns and the Black Lanterns. Kyle rejects the advances of the surprisingly hot Black Lantern Jade, while Salaak lays down the law to the Alpha Lanterns, explaining to them that in the absence of the Guardians, Salaak, Kyle and Guy Gardner(!)are in charge of the Corps. The Black Lanterns take over all of the prisoners the Guardians had executed on Oa a few issues back. This issue ends with Sinestro's daughter, GL Soranik Natu, returning to Oa to help out.

What I thought: This issue was a straight-forward brawl between the GL's and the BL's. There really wasn't any story development, although I can't help but smile at the fact that Guy Gardner is now officially in charge of 1/3 of the GL Corps! This was a good action issue, but little else.

Score: 7 out of 10.You know, for a heart-eating zombie, Jade doesn't look half bad!


  1. "Kyle rejects the advances of the surprisingly hot Black Lantern Jade" - This pretty much says it all.

  2. Jeez, what was I thinking when I typed up that line! Well, for a zombie she DID look good!
