Some thoughts about Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #1
Guy Gardner believes that there must be a way to return to their universe but before they can think in a way to escape, a new civilization might bring them the answer.
This title continues the story from the last miniseries Green Lantern: Lost Army except that this time, Tom Taylor replaces Cullen Bunn as the writer. How does the book fares?
Pretty nicely I would say.
I'm not lying when I say that first pages made me enjoy this series much more than the last one, when you see a space squirrel cursing you know that you will have a good time, Aside from that, Taylor brings a new level of personality to the writing and characters that I felt was lacking in the last title. At difference from that work though, Guy is the star of the book this time instead of John but at the very least he receives a pretty entertaining and on-point characterization.
The rest of the cast also get some decent moments while the plot progresses adequately. Sadly a member from the cast dies in this chapter and I'm pretty disappointed about it but at the very least he showed the kind of person he was before it happened (which didn't occurr in the last series, looking at you Bunn).
Ethan Van Sciver handles the artwork and is pretty good looking with expressive characters and strong moments in almost every page.
Promising beginning, hope the rest of the series continues to be as entertaining.
