Straight Outta the 90s

Sam Humphrey & Ethan Van Sciver “Green Lanterns, Volume 1: Rage Planet” (DC Comics, 2017)

The good news is that I think I like these new Lanterns.  They seem to have some interesting personal stories and personalities.  I like how they are trying to work together, even though it is difficult. There’s some real potential here.

The bad news starts with all this Red Lantern bullshit. I was really hoping that all this would be left behind in the Nu52.  I mean red vomit Lanterns is about the most Xtreme 90s concept out there.  It is just so awful and stupid.  So of course the Red Lanterns get as much page time and our actual, you know, Green Lanterns.

DC, you’ve got some good characters here, don’t screw it up by putting them in the most XTREME storylines you can dream up.  Leave all that colored nonsense behind & just write some cool space cop stories.
