Hey everyone, Jason Todd back again, you guys are gonna get sick of me aren't ya? Well welcome back to my Red Hood. As I told you last time due to a low pull this week (only two comics, one of them being a rehash or Blackest Night.) I decided I'd catch up on some comics I hadn't reviewed yet. So following yesterday's What I Learned From: Cry for Justice, I decided today I'd review something else. A few weeks back I read Green Lantern: Rebirth, and planned on reviewing it. After being beat to the punch by Marc and his excellent review over at Marc's Awesome Blog I decided I'd move on and do the next best thing. The aftermath of Rebirth, So i present to you, my review of Green Lantern Corps: Recharge.
Sometimes the art looks really good, other times, an example being when Kyle find's Soranik's ring, it looks very juvenile and there's not much definition, which definitely takes away from the comic. This comic also deals with Spiders, which along with Centipedes, creep me the hell out. Anyway, aside from that, this was an interesting comic. I liked our introduction to Soranik, seeing the Rann and Thanagerian team up, and having the spotlight on Kyle, Guy and Kilowog. But the story itself was subpar, and very boring at times. I had to force myself to finish it for the sake of the review and that's not a good thing. While I may be overreacting, some may enjoy it, but in my opinion this was more filler than anything. It did portray the rookies in a good light while showing the vets as Lanterns that had been around the block and were just as competent as Hal Jordan which was a big plus. I think it could have been better but it wasn't awful in the least bit. I'll give it a solid 6/10. If you're a big fan of the Green Lantern Corps, it wouldn't hurt to check it out, If not, I'd say you can do without it.
Well that's all for me today, hopefully I'm not spoiling you guys with too many posts, later this week you can expect some Ratings and Rantings on Green Lantern 53 and Blackest Night: Dorector's cut, Also I plan on reviewing Spider-Man: Noir and possibly a DC animated film this weekend, so yeah, it's a big week here at JTCS, but until next time, You've just been Gobsmacked.
