This is how new eras
are written. Opening with the arrival of Mr. Terrific to the
parallel dimension, the surprises don't make anyone wait as an
unexpected party greeting him is revealed. That sequence alone was
worth the $2.99, but is by no means the best part of the story. Just
like the 50's ushered the Silver Age with the introduction of Flash,
this issue echoes that same grandeur by marking the dawn of an aptly
named new Age with the debut of its own speedster.
While all this
happens, the much discussed spin on Alan Scott's character unravels
smoothly, only to be disrupted by three words: magic, train, fire.
Any fan of his knows what this means and what comes next; Flash may
be the first in this world, but Green Lantern will be the greatest.
Nicola Scott and company deliver A+ art to make of this book an
absolute must have.
