Review from Expertscolumn.com
This issue of Green Lantern was released by DC Comics in December 1982, written by Mike W. Barr, penciled by Keith Pollard, Inked by Mike DeCarlo, Anthony Tollin on colors, Ben Oda on letters, and Ernie Colon is the editor. After a time, Evil Star makes his return. As it turns out during this issue, Evil Star has the power to warp others into his mindless minions and turn them rather evil.
Evil Star does have some intriguing powers, but half of the time, I just can’t get past his name. Evil Star’s name is rather a sticking point but I keep trying to tell myself that it was a different time in comic books. And there are some cool visual and some rather great moments throughout this issue of Green Lantern. That is one thing that I would rather enjoy with Green Lantern, as there is never a shortage of excitement, even if the depth can be all over the board.
Evil Star blotting out the stars with a big old hand for instance was one such moment of greatness.
Naturally like most villains, Evil Star has his own downfall and that his own creations appear to be a little bit too good. A point which Hal Jordan exploits for the win. And another villain is out. Very much a 1980s comic book plot of a villain having a plan, things appearing to be hopeless, the hero offering a sacrifice, and then in the end, managing to get the way out.
It won’t be rather something that will lead to anything ground breaking. As it was in this issue of Green Lantern it does its trick and really leads to an issue that while is not one that you should go out of your way to get, this issue is not devoid of any quality. And when you spend about ten minutes or whatever reading a comic book, you want to feel like your ten minutes is not wasted.
