This issue was particularly interesting to read since it’s something we haven’t seen yet in Green Lanterns. Although the recent issues have been pretty intense with action and adventure it was nice to see a slower pace in story. The book takes place on Mogo and spends most of the book introducing Cruz and Baz to the corps.

The writing and art as always are on point. That being said I don’t completely agree with Cruz and Baz being told they aren’t ready to be Green Lanterns. After everything they’ve done so far and accomplished I don’t think that was deserved. The amount of times they’ve overcome their fears and saved the Earth, especially Jessica who as you all know suffers from anxiety, I think has well earned their colors.

Green Lanterns #22 Review

John Stewart was pretty annoying in this issue. Pretty much anyone in the Corps who spoke to Jessica and Simon were treating them as if they were on their first day. The Green Lantern Corps has been lost in space and the only Lanterns that are available are Baz and Cruz. In the short time they’ve been Lanterns they’ve become members of the Justice League and defended the world and saved it countless times. So even if John didn’t know what they’ve done while he’s been gone, at least he could have given them the benefit of the doubt since the world’s still intact and they’re not dead.

Overall this is an exciting book even though it’s not as action packed as the last issue. Spending more time with Simon and Jessica with the Corps I think is needed and should probably have the pace next issue as well. Ronan Cliquet’s illustrations really impress in this book especially when there’s so much going on in a single panel. Humphries writing again does great at making Simon and Jessica seem more like real people rather than just your average comic book characters.

Is It Good?
Although it was irritating at some points it was nice to see the Green Lanterns on Mogo and finally meeting the Corps -- bringing it back to the Green Lantern roots.
This issue feels like an old school Green Lantern book.
You get to see all the Lanterns together for the first time in a long time.
Beautiful artwork.
The Green Lantern Corps treated Jessica like she didn't know anything when she's been protecting the earth while they've been lost in space. After 22 issues she's not new to this.

Great
