Green Lantern Corps #63
Kolins, Prado, Williams & Hdr
Green Lantern Corps comes to a close with this issue as it waits for the relaunch/reboot with a story that tries to drive home what it means to be a member of the Green Lantern Corps. Unfortunately the issue attempts to divide the story up into chapters based on artistic team and character focus (while having the same writer for all four chapters) and we end up getting a story that doesn't stack up into anything remotely as powerful as it could have been. It's not even that the comic reads as a mash-up of leftover parts, but rather it reads as though the creative teams had different directions as to the focus of their characters, which seems impossible because Kolins wrote all four stories. Overall, this doesn't live up to the quality of one-shots we've seen from this line since the crossover ended and it certainly doesn't live up to the standard that this title has set up over the past five years. This was a very disappointing read.
