Green Lantern #11
by Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke
So, the New 52 Green Lantern book started a little shaky, but the last few issues have been awesome. Johns has crafted an incredibly interesting relationship between Sinestro and Hal Jordan that tests what really makes Jordan a hero much more than any intergalactic threat ever could. While this interesting character drama plays out, Johns reintroduces one of Hal’s most intriguing and dangerous villains, and manages to make him even scarier than ever. Even with all that Johns has going on in this issue, he still finds room to continue to build the greater Green Lantern myths and push his ongoing story arc forward, as well. This boo,k much like Justice League last week, proves just how great a writer Geoff Johns is.
X-Treme X-Men #1
by Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia
You want a fun book with giant squids, floating heads, rock star superheroes, alternate dimension, and more X-Men than you can count? Then, X-Treme X-Men is the book for you. Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia bring us a totally ridiculous and awesome X-Men title. This isn’t just any X-Men, though, it’s the X-Treme X-Men, so you can expect high octane action, totally off-the-wall sci-fi, and tons of hilarious Dazzler dialogue. Yes, I said Dazzler, because the main character of this book is everyone’s favorite X-Woman, Dazzler, and she’s awesome. If you are fatigued by all the crazy event books and endless tie-ins, then read this super fun book and remember just how much fun comics can be.
