Green Lantern #8

Green Lantern #8 offers the arrival of the Blue Lantern Razer on Earth who warns Hal Jordan of attacks against the Power Batteries of multiple of the rainbow brigade leading him to challenge the exiled Green Lantern to try and make a difference. Unfortunately, despite a will to succeed, Hal is unable to breach the barrier that keeps him contained on Earth. The plot, which feels like a homage to classic Silver Surfer tales, but, like with the Surfer, the best adventures are always out in space isn't anything special, although there is some good humor and the art by Amancay Nahuelpan is great to look at.

The comic also offers a few panels at the always dysfunctional relationship between Hal and Carol and we get a cameo by Madame Xanadu along with a mystery suggesting something on Earth is somehow connected to the ring Hal forged in space... somehow. Oh, and the comic wastes several pages on a back-up story centered around the absolute worst Green Lantern of all-time. 

[DC, $4.99]
