Comics this week

Earth #2- As the Wonders and the World Army makes their separate push into the country of Dherain to go after Steppenwolf, they meet up but unlike the normal superhero bash we normally have, the two groups had a negotiation to decide if they could work together. Now this is more like it. One of the fun things about Earth 2 is the fact that things don't normally goes the way it should as in other comics title. Of course saying "No" to the Earth 2 Batman is another plus for writer James Robinson but the unusual nature of the series is something I hope will continue with the new team. Robinson and artist Nicola Scott had done a good job thus far and when the team leaving, I hope the new guys will keep up the good work.

Green Lantern #22- One thing this issue proves is that it's tough being the boss. For years, Hal Lantern is the Green Lantern who was the one most likely to ignore the orders of his superiors and go into things on his own. Now the shoe is on the other foot and Hal gets a taste of what an ass he could be at times. Rookies who do not follow orders, veterans who do not stay at their posts, and all under his command. Yup, the shoe is now firmly on the other foot. If writer Robert Venditti and artist Billy Tan play their cards right, this should be a fun ride.
