Anyone who fancies themselves as a Green Lantern fan has probably noticed that each representative of Sector 2814 has been given ample time to shine in a solo series. Whether it be Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner or Kyle Rayner, each of those ringslingers have had an era that they could definitively call their own, and each also made vast contributions to the ongoing mythology.
But when DC relaunched the flagship space cop title in 2016, they pluralized it with Green Lanterns, effectively placing the focus squarely on rookies Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. Now, this could’ve been a disaster if placed in the hands of lesser writers, but Sam Humphries gave those two such personality and charted exciting new territory from the get-go.
Obviously, creators don’t stay on specific titles forever, and this one is no exception. Fortunately, we have Tim Seeley to carry the torch and, if his run on Nightwing is to be any indicator, the immediate future for this series is looking pretty bright.
Soon enough, Seeley will continue his current arc that sees Simon and Jessica being forced to deal with Bolphunga, who forever remains a thorn in the collective side of the Corps. This time, though, matters are exponentially complicated by his associates, especially Singularity Jain, who actually eats the guy’s spaceship! Now, I know if you or I had a dollar for every time our own attorneys ate our ships we’d be rich, but we’re excited to see where this is heading nevertheless.
For more, be sure to check out the official synopsis:
“OH BOLPHUNGA, WHERE ART THOU?” part two! Simon and Jess try to bring Bolphunga back to his old foe Mogo but come face to face with Singularity Jain, whose kiss can kill. She’s here to make Bolphunga pay his debts—and she plans to devour anyone who stands in her way!
