With a diverse cast,
great art, and an ever flowing storyline, this title is one of my
favorites, and probably the best within the Green Lantern family of
books. The New Guardians enter "The Orrery" while their team
dynamics continue to build; from Arkillo and Saint Walker, to
Fatality and Monk, to Kyle and Glommy, there is plenty of
characterization in the middle of the action.
One question that
had been dangling was the presence of Bleeze and how it fit within
her other title, "Red Lanterns". That is addressed impeccably here,
and the way it is presented perfectly fits the events in that other
book. Tyler Kirkham's artwork just gets better with each issue;
crisp and inviting with lots of detail. The challenging part seemed
to be putting in paper the scale of the orrery itself; not talking
just about the art, but also the writing; it is a difficult concept
to get in one's head; still, it was a great issue.
