STEVERINO Goes Green


Steve-o here back this week to bring you
the tale of the new Green Lantern of space sector 2814.

GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD DAWN
Book 1 of 6, Dec 1989
Published by DC Comics


"The Sign"  (I guess that's this chapters title.
It shows up on the last page along with the credits)
 Written by: Jim Owsley/M.D.Bright    Inks: Romeo Tanghal
lettering: Al DeGuzman
Yawn. This is said to be essential reading and
THE series to read about GL in Post-Crisis continuity.
OK, but a whole book showing Hal Jordan's dad Lt. Martin H. Jordan
crash and die in front of his two sons (Jack) and a woman I assume
is his wife as well as his Ferris Aircraft co-workers
 and then follows Hal while he self-destructs?
Chapter one of six shows us 23 pages of a story that could have
taken five or six pages to tell.


This is the best page in the book.
It features a dying Abin Sur, the Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814
only we are not told his full name or why he crashed.
I can deal with that but the cool red alien passing
the ring and lantern on gets two pages.Two.


I think the above page is supposed to be the show stopper.
It's not. Like the story it's dull and not well done.
This happened alot in the Eighties.


You see. He almost gives a complete summary
of this comic in three panels. Chapter one of six did
do its job. I do want to read on and see where
Emerald Dawn goes from here.
Hopefully, up.
And now back to the fun.
 How about a fan made GL video?



How about an Emerald Dawn action figure?

 
Ring?


Cookie?


OK. I'll move on.
If I do pull books two thru six out of
The Big Box I'll probably read them too.
How else will I know what happens?

Wow I remember reading the Green Lantern back in the very early 1970's. Thanks for bringing back some fond memories! Happy New Year!

Green Lantern Emerald was considerate one of the best comics of the last decade, and it was completely just because the sequence was impressive. I love Green Lantern since ever and this is one of my favorites.

She fought for a second but I told her, remember ourdeal. So she swallowed the powerful liquor, smiled bravely up at her lord, even though the burning liquid almost brought tears to her eyes.
