The Green Lantern Vol.1: Intergalactic Lawman thrusts Hal Jordan back into the role he does best, playing space cop.On the new OA, the Guardians put Hal on the job of finding a traitor from a new prophecy. His investigations take him across the galaxy, saving planets and stopping villains.. Interesting and a little all over the place, the story takes the reader on a wild ride and still manages to keep your eyes riveted to the page. The art work takes a little old school flair and teams it up with some impressive color and drawings for a masterpiece for the eyes. This volume provides a gripping story line and some impressive art for an engrossing read. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.
Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. For a 'Vol. One' this book relied on much prior knowledge of the reader about the universe of the Green Lantern. This was definitely colorful but most annoyingly too busy. It was not possible to keep straight the situations or characters, they are just too many and strange. In old fashioned comic books I do not remember the silly attempts at humor.
This volume follows Hal Jordan, Earth's Green Lantern protector, as he stumbles upon a mysterious alien hiding in plain sight, and his discovery sets off a disastrous chain of events that will shake the very foundation of the Green Lantern Corps. There are many difficulties ahead for Jordan, including an inter-galactic conspiracy and a traitor in the Green Lantern Corps ranks. Earth rules don't apply in space, so Hal must do whatever it takes to catch this mysterious stranger. He has spent years battling for what he believes in, but could that belief cost him everything? Grant Morrison does a really great job showcasing the ins and outs of Hal Jordan: what makes him tick, what motivates him, what his goals are, and most importantly, his dedication to protecting Earth, and his loyalties to the Green Lantern Corps. That being said, I did find the actual story line to be a little..meh. I can't pinpoint exactly what didn't grab me, but I just wasn't super invested in it. Maybe my expectations were a little too high, but it just fell a little short. While I enjoyed some aspects of the story, "Blackstar at Zenith" being my favorite, the artwork is really what stood out for me. Liam Sharp's artwork is superb, down to the very smallest detail. I found myself mesmerized by every single panel, so it really helped propelled the story to the next level and keep me interested.
