  • Psychedelic story telling??? Man! I didn’t like the movie and don’t think I’d like this one either Lashaan!

    • No. Morrison is currently five issues into his “Season 2” of “The Green Lantern.” I’ve tried a couple of issues but am sad to say it’s even worse than “Season 1”. 😥

    • You’d be surprised by the trippy stuff in here. Like Wakizashi mentions, he’s begun Season 2 of his run which takes place after the whole three-issue Blackstars thing. I probably won’t be in any rush to discover what that has to offer for now hahaha

  • You know I always used to confuse Green Lantern and Jim Carrey’s The Mask (the movies of course!) 🤣🤣 BUT MAN WAS THAT AND AWESOME ONE!! 😍😍

    “Psychedelic story-telling” 🤣 Made me think of several words and phrases – all jumbled up – Johnny Depp’s face in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    “Stretch itself thin”? Like butter spread over too much bread? Bilbo? The Hobbit? MIDDLE EARTH? I like how our conversations always lead us there – the place of dragons and magic! 🤷🏻‍♀️😉🤣

    That ending! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this review Lashaan! SUCH FUN! 😍😍😍😍

      • ITS TOO AWESOME LASHAAN! I forget though – have you watched it yet? IF NOT THEM PLEASE DOOOOO!! 😍😍😍

        Okay…let me explain it to you! 😉 So…in the movie Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring – when Gandalf goes to meet Bilbo on his birthday party? They talk about the mountains and Bilbo says the following:

        “I feel old Gandalf. Stretched. Like butter spread over too much bread!”

        🤣🤣 THATS HOW I CONNECTED IT! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

  • You took me up only to bring me back down….I want so badly to love the Green Lantern for all the same reasons as everyone but he’s kind of a mess. It sounds like I should pick up the first volume but maybe skip this second one.

    • Hahahaha I like to do that for a lot of books that ended up disappointing me but had something special to work with, although unsuccessfully. 😛 The first volume is definitely better but not exceptional enough to be a starting point for anyone who wants to discover the character! I’d prefer recommending people to Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern run instead! 😀 Thanks for reading!

  • Hmmm… so it sounds like you really enjoyed this one, eh? Oh well, they can’t all be winners, I suppose. I don’t think I ever followed Green Lantern, and I don’t know that I’m going to start now. 🙂

    • Hahahah I definitely found this disappointing. 😛 If you were to want to discover the character, I’d probably offer other much more fruitful series/stories, especially the New 52 run by Geoff Johns, which you’re indirectly making me want to go through again hahaha

  • Excellent review, Lashaan. I tried this series because I’ve liked a lot of Morrison’s earlier writing. It started off okay, but lost me halfway through “Season 1.” Sharp’s art is very 2000AD, if you’re familiar with that British sci-fi comic book. Sadly, “Season 2” is even worse, so far.

    • Thanks, man. I appreciate it. I’m a huge fan of his earlier works too and would jump on any opportunity to read his stuff but I feel like anything he does nowadays doesn’t match the ingenuity of his stories back in the day. I’ve been recommended to check out 2000AD and plan to someday. Your upvote for it definitely made me push it higher on my list. 😀

  • Looks like the author is getting tired of his own works or maybe he’s just on his very own trippy trip himself ahahahahah Fantastic review, Lashaan! On to the next 🙂

  • Hm…I still haven’t got around to reading volume 1 and not being a huge Morrison fan (he’s more often than not “overboard” for me, but there are exceptions – Batman: Gothic I really like!) that makes me more reluctant, adding to that the fact that you were quite underwhelmed by this second collection (AND given how much of a Morrison fan you are my good man). Great review as ever my friend!

    • Yep… I think you can safely ignore this series if you ever contemplated the idea of skipping it too. I’d rather revisit his past work than go through this one again honestly hahaha I don’t know if I’ll ever continue with what he’s doing here but nothing really compels me too, except maybe a desire to spew some negative thoughts on something hahaha Thanks for reading, Chris! I appreciate it a lot. 😀
