Every week DC sends us a preview, and every week we say, “Hey, that’s neat! But it needs more Guy Gardner and Charles Soule.”
So DC says to themselves, they says, “Oh YEAH, weisenheimer?” Then they send us Red Lanterns #29, which is written by Charles Soule and starring Guy Gardner. “Oh,” they add, “And Supergirl’s in there too, wielding a rage-fueled Red Lantern ring! Hah!” Then they chomp on a cigar, which is what you do when you’ve won an argument in the Man Cave.
Well guess what, DC? This needs more Guy Gardner and Charles Soule. Like, if every panel were just Guy making a ring construct of Charles Soule writing that very issue, and the whole issue could be stapled together to make a möbius strip of itself, that…that would possibly be enough. But until that’s a real, extant publication, this is pretty good. This is the DC book we want to read each month.
And hey, is this issue the best art we’ve seen from Alessandro Vitti yet, or what? Just check out the perspectives and energy in page 1, and it only gets better from there.
Hey, that’s Guy’s ring hand. You can’t ringlead if you can’t ring-sling.
