Anyhow, back to Green Lantern #9. Another gruesome threat hunts for Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern of Earth O, across the multiverse!
He captures him and the Green Lantern of Earth #20, but…
…a multiverse or multiversity Green Lantern Corps come to the rescue?
Next up is Green Lanterns #10 and the reveal that the Multiverse’s Green Lantern Corps consists of team members from 12 different Earths.
Here’s our Who’s Who so far.
Twelve Earths, but only eight represented on the cover; Earth 0…
…and one more Earth that I’m not clear on; three more Earths to be revealed next issue. Anyhow, any idea who the last member is from Green Lantern #10 cover? Well, we know its not Rond Vidar…
…the first Green Lantern of the Legion of the Super-Heroes.
A thoroughly entertaining issue with complex, multi-layered yet accessible and engaging story. Great art. 9 out of 10.
