Green Lantern Corps #10 Review

Guest Author - Eugene Bradford

Green Lantern Corps #10 continues the Alpha-War tale. In “Executioner’s Song,” John Stewart is judged guilty by the Alpha Lanterns. He is being tried for his murder of Lantern Kirrt Kallak which prevented him from revealing Lantern secrets to their enemies. Many of the Lanterns are unhappy about the sentence Lantern Stewart receives. Being the dissenter that Guy Gardner is, the situation comes to a head. The Guardians even present a viewpoint that I certainly never expected to read.

There’s a heavy emotional element carried here by John that Peter J. Tomasi handles well. First we have John still dealing with this whole situation. Kirrt’s family visits John so he can apologize about lying to them. That conversation goes about as well as you would expect. He touches on what it’s like serving as a Lantern. Guy is vocal as ever and does not hesitate to express his disapproval with the current events and the Alpha Lanterns.

Fernando Pasarin’s pencils are finished with Scott Hanna’s inks and Gabe Eltaeb’s coloring. John Stewart carries his usual calmer demeanor in contrast with Guy’s angrier presence. But readers also see how Gardner looks when he’s about to do something other people won’t like. In a Green Lantern book, you expect their energy to pop through the pages and Eltaeb doesn’t disappoint.

Before the New 52 launched, I was reading both Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. Post-relaunch, I picked up both books again. But I didn’t stick with Green Lantern because I lost interest in Hal Jordan and Sinestro’s struggle. I like how Lanterns Stewart and Gardner are being guided by Tomasi in this book. They’re so much more entertaining. Their mentalities are quite different and they play off of each other so well.

After the ending of this book, I’m definitely curious to see what happens in issue #11. The Corps are in a position I’ve never seen. I would recommend this book to people interested in these characters or in the concept of the Lanterns in general.


I purchased this comic book with my own funds.
