GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14 Review by Jamie Dunst
Writer: Peter J. Tomasi; Artist: Fernando Pasarin; Inker: Scott Hanna: Colorist: Gabe Eltaeb: Letterer: Dave Sharpe
The issue begins with Guy and his group trying to take on the third army. When the third army becomes too much for Guy and group and eventually Guy’s group of GLs are assimilated into the third army leaving Guy no choice but to retreat. Guy realizes that someone might be targeting his family and he takes them to a safe place with the Justice League until things settle down. What Guy doesn’t realize is that the Guardians are the ones who have the psycho on their leash to mess with Gardner in the first place. Elsewhere, Salaak and Kilowog are realizing that the Guardians may not be on the up and up as of late and Salaak has dispatched a Green Lantern to Earth to find Hal Jordan.
Meanwhile, we see a Star Sapphire getting a mission. We also see John Stewart on a mission to help the destroyed planet Lantern Mogo when we see that Star Sapphire and it’s Fatality. I’m looking forward to this team-up. Should be interesting. Back on OA, we see that the Guardians are blasting Guy for not retreating from the creatures that assimilated his team and for what happened on his mission to protect the ambassador’s ship. All aboard will killed. The Guardians make Guy resign from his post as Green Lantern in view of the rest of the Corps as an example to the rest. Guy does resign and the Guardians send him back to his garage where his motorcycle is.Read More

The issue begins with the Guardians going over what has transpired in previous issues and how their third army is fairing. The first Lantern wonders why the Guardians are doing this and they explain that by having one voice in the Universe will finally bring order. The first Lantern finds them interesting due to how much they have changed but the Guardians don’t care much about him and tell the first Lantern that he is only needed for a short time to power their third army and once they have completed their objective, he will be of no use to them anymore.
Elsewhere, Simon Baz and the Justice League are facing off. At first, it seems that the whole situation can be reasoned and that calmer heads are prevailing, Then, at the request of Batman, Simon tries to take off the ring and Sinestro constructs appear yelling at the Justice League not to touch the ring and we have…….high-speed chase. Not what I expected but it does give us some good conversation between SImon and the Justice League. Once Simon gets away, he meets up with his sister. They have a nice moment where she explains to Simon that she doesn’t blame him for what happened to her husband and she gets the address of the man whose van Simon stole and they depart.Read More

This issue starts off at the White House where we see President Obama talking to Amanda Waller about Green Lanterns. We get a rundown of the current Green Lanterns and the current situation where in their view, a suspected terrorist named Simon Baz is now in possession of a Green Lantern ring. The president listens to the play-by-play of those events and he asks Waller if the Justice League had been contact. Amanda Waller is about to tell the President that she wanted to take care of things herself, the President cuts her off and tells her to call them telling her that he knows what a Green Lantern ring can do and it’s more or less a job for them.Read More

We begin this issue with the Guardians telling the reader how they have failed with their previous armies and how this third army will once and for all maintain order across the universe. Elsewhere, we see Hal Jordan buried alive by Black Hand. Once he frees himself, he and Black Hand talk about bringing back Martin Jordan which Hal is against. Back wherever the Guardians are, they locate the Chamber of Shadows (which I have on good authority is the cousin to the Chamber of Secrets) we see the Guardians open up the chamber to reveal more Guardians. The Guardians inside the chamber ask if they can finally rejoin the Green Lantern Guardians who reply not yet and that they need the power of the first Lantern. When the Chamber Guardians refuse, the two groups of Guardians prepare to rumble.
