Green Lantern #1

This week we review Green Lantern #1 and again Steve beat me to it.  So once more I’ll give the contrast of guy who knows nothing about Green Lantern aside from what was in the movie.

Starting out with Sinistro having a ring was surprise to me, I knew Hal Jordan had been Green Lantern for some time but they quickly established the fact that Jordan was given the boot and the ring once more chose Sinistro for whatever reason.

When we meet Hal back on earth things are not going well and they explain that he has been off planet being Green Lantern so long his life as a human is in the toilet.  Jobless, behind on rent, no car, and still thinking he is a super hero.  That thought lands him in jail, only to be bailed out by Carol who tells him he needs to move on and get his life together.  I really enjoyed how Hal is written, made me laugh out loud a couple of times at how out of touch he is.  I was glad to see he was very much the same style as he was in Justice League #1.

My only real problem with the comic is it went too fast and I’d like another now.  Thus far reading the new DC 52 I’ve only had complaints when the writer assumes you know too much.  This gave me enough information to understand the who and why of each character without having to delve into the deep details of history.  I look forward to learning more about the characters as the series goes on.

Next week we review Wonder Woman.  I’m not sure what to expect from it as I’ve never read Wonder Woman, but I’m curious to see what it has to offer.
