Some thoughts about Green Lanterns #50
An anomaly has appeared and is willing to take the whole Green Lantern Corps and not even their combined forces might be enough to stop it.
A new storyline has begun this time handled by Dan Jurgens and so far seems like an interesting enough premise.
The plot takes place after the end of the current Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps series, meaning that it plays with a different status quo that might be connected to the rumoured Grant Morrison Green Lantern run. While this issue doesn't offer much hints about what that new direction might be, it still brings a pretty decent mystery about a new threat that could tear the entire Corps apart.
The characterization works pretty solidly which is something common from most of Jurgens' work. The cast acts the way they should and they're pretty likable as a whole. The most surprising thing about this story is that it not only focuses on Simon and Jessica as usual but it also centers around other GLs like Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner which is logical considering the scale this set-up is taking.
The pacing works effectively due that the antagonist's presence keeps increasing with every page to the point where the stakes are getting bigger and the team even suffers a few losses towards the end.
Mike Persons handles the art and is decent enough, he knows how to create cool images and work appropriately in a cosmic level although I wish there was more clarity in his style.
Solid beginning but I hope the next issue offers more content.
