With all the old GL sectors abandoned, there's plenty of work to be done. Ganthet sends Green Lantern and Jade to a formerly protected sector where an uncharted planet is under siege by a group of mindless, super-powered creatures. Kyle and Jen are the last hope for a race of industrialist nomads!

    Based on this opening issue the move into outer space doesn't look to have gotten the creative juices flowing, as Judd Winick is covering some rather familiar terrain. Basically the plot has Kyle & Jade come across a group of alien colonists who are being attacked by the native population, and the issue strongly suggests that the victims of these attacks are resource hungry developers, while their attackers are only acting to keep their planet from being exploited. Now perhaps this story won't seem quite so plot-by-numbers to newer readers, but I've seen it play out dozens of times before, and as such I find myself a bit unimpressed by this book's adherence to the staple plot elements that one can expect to find on a story like this. My only real consolation is that Jade is quick to point out that she recognizes the pattern set before her, and while Kyle is uncharacteristically unwilling to listen to her concerns, it is nice to see that Judd Winick isn't going to try to surprise us wit Read Full Review
