We’re back with another exclusive preview this week and it’s a big one, the latest in the ongoing multiversal serial that is Grant Morrison‘s and Liam Sharp‘s The Green Lantern. I can’t tell you how ravenously I devour each issue, and while earlier issues saw the team play a bit within various superhero-based genres (a tribute to DC’s sci-fi Silver Age adventures here, an Adams/O’Neil riff there, etc…), they’ve now dived deep in the meaty material that Morrison and his collaborators developed for The Multiversity, with Hal on Earth-15 with a cadre of Green Lanterns including the great Mike Barr and Jerry Bingham Batman/Green Lantern mash from Batman: In Darkest Night.
As everyone knows, Hal and Bruce do NOT get along, and not even a Corps ring is going to change that fact. Hey, also, Star Sapphire is back! Now if the return of a powered up Carol Ferris can’t get you into the comic shop this week to pick up this exhilarating new issue, I just don’t know what else will. But here’s a preview to whet your appetite, exclusive to The Beat!
Seriously, look at those Steve Oliff colors.
On the edge of reality, Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Star Sapphire face death by power ring firing squad! Yes, Hal and Carol Ferris reunite (sort of) as they fight their way out of the improbable turn of events of the previous issue! In fact, with what happens next issue, they may not want to survive this one…
