Green Lantern Corps #1, Peter J. Tomasi (w), Fernando Pasarin (a) [Print]
THE PITCH: The Green Lantern Corps has thousands of galaxy protecting billions of lives. Guy Gardner and John Stewart are a couple of the regular Joes from Earth who protect Sector 2814.
HOW WAS IT? This book, you guys. I half really like it and half want to throw it out the window. I don't know, it's probably because it was the last book I read this week and seeing another person get killed in a pretty terrible way and then seeing an act of genocide and what I thought was at first an homage to the poster for Cannibal Holocaust... I was put off a little, alright? And that's a shame, because after the first couple of pages of lingering, incredibly detailed slaughter, Peter J. Tomasi has a pretty decent little story to tell you about Guy Gardner and John Stewart trying to figure out what to do in between calls as Lanterns.
This issue--the unfortunately titled "Triumph of the Will"--spends the bulk of its time on Guy and John trying to get steady jobs while not being called on to battle intergalactic color-based calamity. Guy's angling for a job as a high school coach and Stewart is pitching a building design to a bunch of developers and both of them kind of blow their respective gigs.
