Not the Brightest of Days for Agent Orange
on 15 September 2011
I feel that a 5 star review can only be written for great works of art like Green Lantern: Rebirth or Sinestro Corps War etc; I only gave Green Lantern: Secret Origins 4 stars and that is but far the better book to read than Agent Orange. That said, whilst this is not bad its clearly not in the same league as those three.
By no means is this an essential volume of the green lanterns mythos but it's certainly worth reading as a prelude to Blackest Night, but it's far too short considering we are being introduced to one of the new corps. Other than the Larfleeze back story there were no great revelations and it all felt a bit rushed. I think the trouble is that Johns has now set the bar so high that continually matching that is proving to be difficult.
I can't fault the artwork, again it was mesmerising.
