Review: Green Lantern Mosaic #16

Green Lantern Mosaic #16

When should you ask for help?  Everyone is different when they look to ask for the help they require. For some, it’s when they can’t figure something out right away. They want an answer but nothing possessing the knowledge to move forward. Then there are those who have something to prove but would rather drown than ask for help. Both of these situations prove that most don’t know that they are in trouble.

Sometimes, it takes our friends and family to step up and step in. We sometimes can’t see when we need help. It usually is more difficult for superheroes, especially when saving the world is at the center of their actions. In the 16th issue of Green Lantern Mosaic, Jon looks to his super-powered friends to confront the mounting issues in the Mosaic world.

We stumble upon the Mosaic World, as it is under attack, and not from your usual villains, it just so happens to be Hal Jordan and some of the Justice League, looking to make their presence known. As we soon find out just how Jon came to the Mosaic World in the first place, and how his steadfast valiance is what attracted Rose to him in the first place. We also see how the events of Mosaic have become too much for Jon, as Hal and Guy and Gardner return to end all the chaos, but not without causing a bit of trouble themselves. By the issue’s end, as Jon regains his faculties, some things have shifted back, as his dead wife, Katma Tui, is alive and well now.

Overall, one of the best issues ever. The story by Gerard Jones is unassailable and infinite. The art by the creative team is extraordinary. Altogether, an issue that shows how great a storyteller Jones is.
