As Mogo continues to shine as a beacon for lost corps members and the loss of Mukmuk, the surviving Green Lanterns must figure out how to handle the situation in the Last City. Simon Baz seems to be the voice of reason as Guy Gardner and Kilowog continue to argue over how they will handle the situation with their “hosts.”
Gardner confronts Ausras and Dismas as they disclose the supposed real villain, Marniel, a subterranean female whose followers are eternally loyal and acting against her would divide the Last City. The Green Lantern Corps must now save the planet and face this new enemy who is out to rule the galaxy.
For the past few months, especially with the Robin Wars, I have been sounding like nothing more than a Tom Taylor fanboy, but really, he’s the current golden boy of the DC Universe. His writing style continues to captivate the audience and has a knack for writing team-ups and team stories, I would really like to see what he can do on Justice League at some point.
Ethan Van Sciver is able to capture the emotions of each character and how they would react to every situation. Even without Taylor’s script, we could still gather what’s going on in the story, just from his art alone.
Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion issue two is out today online and at comic stores everywhere.
