    Green Lantern #18 was another good read. Johns continues to impress with the high quality of work he is putting forth on this title. Green Lantern is certainly one of DC's strongest titles on the market. I definitely recommend giving Green Lantern a try. Very few books can consistently put forth such well paced and plotted issues like you get in Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    Nora Frieze, Jean Loring, Jillian Pearlmen, Cassandra Cain. These are but four names in the upcoming character "class." Following in the illustrious footsteps of "Women in Refrigerators," the DC writers/creators bring you, "Women in Liquid Nitrogen." Yeah, now they dont outright kill and mutilate them (necessarily not in that order), they just freeze them, shatter them and put them together in as a bizarre way as it suits their fancy. Then again, between this and what is happening to DCs premier female character, Wonder Woman, both in the first arc and now in the second one, I must say, given an (first hand experience) option, Id much rather have this. At least this way, it can be "corrected" with any cockamamie reason (e.g. injections of evil). Read Full Review

    Johns and artist Dave Gibbons add a backup feature called "Tales of the Sinestro Corps," and it is more interesting than the main story. The Sinestro Corps, hinted at heavily but not really explored, is given a member by member introduction through rookie Amon Sur and Lyssa Drak, the keeper of the Book of Parallax. The story, about a living biological weapon wiping out a Green Lantern's planet is intriguing, moderately disturbing, and a great hint at things to come. Sadly, the art isn't up to par. Gibbon's pencils are a tad bland and feels slightly outdated. Still, the execution of the story is wonderful and hopefully will continue to stay that good in the next few issues. Read Full Review
