Comic review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #3

Holy Toledo. 

This book came out a couple of weeks ago, but is worth a quick highlight for those falling behind on their pulls. It could happen to you, because it happened to me.

The colors in this book are some of my favorite things. When Hal Jordan is portrayed in this manner, it makes the book and the story it's trying to tell that much more special. When you throw in Sinestro and a cliffhanger ending to go with these frenetic, energetic art and colors, you've got yourself a little piece of classic DC Comics heaven.

And, that's exactly what Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #3 is:

Robert Venditti writes, Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona, Tomeu Morey do an absolutely fantastic job on the art. 

It has the classic Hal Jordan feel to it in every single page; his voice without fear, his compounding desire to save every living being and his ability to risk it all for one life. Venditti tells one heck of a story of Sinestro trying to suck the universe of its power. 

It's a great story, but the art deserves some serious attention. There is something to be said about being able to make the Green Lantern and Yellow Lantern fight scenes make sense. So much can be lost in the action and varying colors and movements, that it often gets overlooked when someone reels it all in. 

While this is the third issue in the series, this falls into the pile of "Hey, here's why you should read Green Lantern, and, Hal Jordan stories." It's a classic tale set in a new world. It does enough to set itself apart as a new take, but brings in enough of its classic themes and overtones to strike a chord in fans of Sector 2814. 

Rating: 8/10 When you throw in Sinestro and a cliffhanger ending to go with these frenetic, energetic art and colors, you've got yourself a little piece of classic DC Comics heaven.
