Brightest Day: Green Lantern #62 - Review

Hal Jordan faces the Ultimate Lantern Foe!

Krona, the renegade Oan Guardian, has returned from the past and taken all of the entities of the different Lantern Corps. hostage for his own sinister purposes. Hal Jordan tries to stand alone against him, but even with the help of the Justice League and the leader of each of the colored armies, Krona remains unscathed. Hal has to choose between involving his friends in what could be a coming galactic massacre, or to take the burden on himself for all the trouble he's caused them in the past.

If there's one thing Green Lantern does than any other comic book series right now, it's link the emotions and drives of all the characters in the DC Universe. Hal Jordan's struggle to prove himself and the responsibilities that he has to carry for being the greatest Lantern of them all are weighing down on him and it shows wonderfully. Geoff Johns is leading up to yet another great epic in the DC Universe, and I can't wait to read it.

The artwork in this book is pretty standard by today's work, but the pacing and use of color, especially with the different Lanterns, is absolutely wonderful. At times it seems like the ring constructs and light is going to shine right off the page and hit you in the face, and I mean that in the best way possible.

I just hope that the upcoming movie will somehow capture that same magic.
