Review by: Tim Canete Green Lanterns #32 Written by: Sam Humphries Art by: Scott Godlewski, Hi-Fi Published by: DC Comics Released: 10/04/2017
What's this about The rookie duo, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, are back on Earth after facing off with the first Lantern, Volthoom. Their training and their time traveling has kept them away from homes, with their loved ones questioning their loyalties.
We have had our fair share of universal adventures this past arc, and seeing them back on their sector is a breath of fresh air. To know that they face problems that everyone has, finding the balance in their lives between their duties and regular life, makes them feel more human in that regard. It’s different when you’re not a pro.
There’s a decent amount of humor in this between Jess’s adorkabelness and seeing old Simon Baz.The art style is rather strange between the skin tone changes and the rather heavy lines for inking. Next time, we’ll see the Lanterns trying to find a job.
The Review Spoiler Discussion to Follow
This was a fun issue after seeing the number of deaths that happened 10 billion years ago. Yes, Cruz could only teach so much to the first Green Lanterns and Baz didn’t really have much power to help.
The art is what really throws me for a loop as I desperately miss Rocha. J-Bird and Simon just don’t resemble themselves whether it’s the skin tone as I said before or the hair style.
I am pleased that Jessica’s anxiety is still a part of her. I was definitely dying knowing she was trying to have a conversation with this Keith character and go for pancakes(because Simon wasn’t around for merely 5 minutes). However, the conversation turned to the mysterious Green Lantern girl. Too bad he doesn’t know she’s right in front of him.
Finally, it’s good to see Baz and Nazir reconciling. It’s bound to be heated between two people when your best friend goes missing and doesn’t show up. Hard to contact someone when you’re stuck in the past.
Final Thoughts Overall, it wasn’t a bad issue and a change of pace. I would very much appreciate that the artist changes before Humphries leaves and with one proper meal of pancakes. It’s my favorite breakfast after all.
This was a nice change of pace, though I particularly don't prefer the current artist. I give this issue a 7/10
