Panel(s) of the Day 6/4/13
Today’s panels come from the now famous and ever-holy Green Lantern #20 that was released last week in which Geoff Johns finished his near 10-year run on the character! For anyone who has ever read a Johns story, we all know that his storytelling is amazing and somehow this writer has managed to end his fantastic run by bringing everything full circle. Although Hal was the star of Geoff’s series, he also brought many other key players back into the fold including The Guardians, The Corps in general, Sinestro, and Parallax. You may recall that Parallax was the name that Hal took when he became a villain in the late 90’s, but Geoff re-wrote the book of Oa and made Parallax a Fear Entity that was imprisoned in the GL Central Battery. He infected Hal and that is essentially made him destroy the corps all those years ago. Since Johns’ relaunch, the bug as we call him has played an important role in the story; infecting others, and continued to do so all the way until the end. Take a look…
One of the things about Green Lantern that I always liked was the relationship that Hal had which his arch nemesis, Sinestro. At one point he was a Green Lantern and Hal took him down because he saw that he was becoming too controlling and the power went to his head. Overall though, these two have had a much different relationship than other “enemies” in comics, so when I read these panels here it was just great!
Damn! Mr. Johns you have done it again sir! If you haven’t picked up Green Lantern in your life then I highly recommend it and please don’t let the movie dissuade you! It has been such a great series over the years and I just have to thank Geoff Johns for a decade of quality and engaging stories!
IN BRIGHTEST DAY, IN BLACKEST NIGHT. NO EVIL SHALL ESCAPE MY SIGHT. LET THOSE WHO WORSHIP EVIL’S MIGHT, BEWARD MY POWER, GREEN LANTERNS LIGHT!
