Welcome to Crossovers We Want to See, a fairly self-explanatory recurring feature in which we pitch the meeting of a pair of characters or teams from different comic companies. Playing editor, we'll dream up writer and artist combinations and basic story points.
Silver Surfer/Green Lantern Corps – Sentinels of Space
Written by Greg Pak, drawn by Doug Mahnke
While on patrol in their space sector a pair of Green Lanterns are obliterated in flash of light. As news of their demise reaches Oa, Salaak sends Honor Guard Lanterns Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner and a select group of other Lanterns including Kilowog and Soranik Natu to investigate the murder. While there, they come across the Silver Surfer who's investigating the deaths which have a strange energy to them. Surfer teams up with the GLC to track down any enemy that turns out to be Ego the Living Planet. The ring slingers and Surfer do their best to fight Ego, but only walk away with the victory when their own living planet Mogo comes in to save the day.
Sure, Silver Surfer and Green Lantern have crossed over in the past, but that was when there was only one GL trying to keep the spaceways safe. Now that we've had the Green Lantern Corps back for several years, it's time for them to team up with the Silver Surfer and see what happens. Greg Pak's take on Silver Surfer #1 hit this week as did issues of Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. We'd like to see a combination of all three books to see how Pak handles DC's space cops and Doug Mahnke on art chores because, frankly, he's the best there is at what he does. Even without a huge name like Geoff Johns on the book—though we're sure he'd have at least some input if this dream project ever happened—we're pretty sure this would sell huge numbers.
