Green Lantern: Season Two #8

By: Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp
Released: Oct 14, 2020

War with the Anti-Matter World! The cliffhanger to Season One led to this cataclysmic confrontation! We saw that only one anti-matter soldier could decimate a small army of Green Lanterns. What happens when a horde of them strike?

Absolutely brilliant.

The true war with the anti-world is not between the Lanterns and the Weaponeers, but between 666 and the Qwa-Masters.

Another visionary issue by Morrison and Sharp. Morrison really gives the Anti-Matter U. a character of its own after decades of existence...and the perspective on the "Plus-Matter U." GLs was hilarious and unique.

exactly! About halfway through I finally realized that's what was happening - I'm getting slow. But a lovely issue. Art as usual is superb, and the way Morrison wrote the Anti-Matter Unverse - absolutely fantastic. It felt like its own thing, for one of the first times I can remember. You really felt for 666 and his love affair with XXXX as well...unexpected, human and fabulous! Loved that it was almost all from the Anti-perspective.

Trade Summary:
A very different Green Lantern book then we've ever had before but it works. Morrison applies his usual tricks and creates a compelling story in episodic format before tying it up for his mid-season finale. Liam Sharp's art is also amazing.

TBH it goes back to the creepy GL runs in the late 60s and 80s, putting aside Johns' "Lantern Army" style writing, which was fun for a while but got overdone. Loving this series.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.

Back to another great issue after one or two that were a bit softer, which is a real rarity in this run. Morrison and Sharp continue to nail Hal and have a blast doing it, with lots of easter eggs and new ideas bursting off each page.

How about ...more of the same. Nice art by Sharp and more garbage writing by Morrison, who just can't seem to get a handle on Hal Jordan.

Ulf - Mar 13, 2020

There we go! And he absolutely has a handle on Hal Jordan - he's riffing off the Hal as seen from the late 60s - early 80s, when he was a drifter (Toy Salesman/Truck Driver/Etc. etc.) Johns reduced him to a wiseguy who used the ring as a weapon - way too reductive. Read some GL from #50-75 by John Broome and company, and then some Moore backup GLC stories from the early 80s GL run, and you'll see Morrison has nailed Hal Jordan.

I don’t like the final issue as much as others do, because it doesn’t give the Watchmen characters enough respect. They also don’t really have a purpose in this story. Plus Doomsday Clock remains to be irrelevant for the DC universe. Overall Johns disappointed at the end.

No one actually promised a reboot or crisis coming out of Doomsday Clock. From the beginning, Johns a confrontation between the philosophies of Superman and Dr. Manhattan instead of a brawl between Justice League and Watchmen. You can judge how well it performed to that promise.
