The Green Lantern 009

This was a terrific read with nostalgia and continuity treats. The art was sword and sorcery themed appropriate and the attention to details here -even though a topsy turvy landcape- was a cherry on top. Plus, there was significant developments in news Hal/GL canon to witness.

Someone else will have to share the rights and wrong of incorporating Morrison's Multiversity works and if any of the big name hero titles -under other writers- have ever acknowledged that franchise concept in any of their stories yet. Pretty much passed on those books except maybe the first issue and the very, very cool DCU mapping. But this was fun to read and is interesting Event-like set-up (confined to only this book?).

Y'all might appreciate this info from other sources before posting your replies.
The story was good even if they had been all new characters but finding out SO MANY WERE pre-existing made it very, very cool after finding out identities online - although finding out in an Afterwords may've been better. Here y'go...

    It was also a pleasant surprise that someone spotted Maxima; she is long overdue a revisit. They also commented on the dialogue bubble:
    > What the hell can be emitting that amount of gamma radiation? Hulk? Is Morrison secretly crossover with Ewing? ;\)
