Review: Green Lantern Mosaic #18
Sometimes the fork in the road is the best thing that could happen to us. When we find ourselves at a place where we cannot go forward or stall we then look for a better way. Sometimes that means moving to a new place, hoping it brings good fortune as well. Then there are those times we find a relationship that may be dragging us down, leading one to cut ties with people who are considered emotional vampires.
Those around may know us better than we know ourselves but this isn’t always the case. As you get older, you’ll find that people older than you give you unsolicited advice and sometimes it’s from people who you consider close. This is when your ability to discern comes into play. In the last issue of Green Lantern Mosaic, Jon’s powers have grown more than the rest of the Corps could anticipate as he gets into the battle of his life.
We find Jon shortly after the Amazon Hellburner eviscerated everyone he loves in the Mosaic. He becomes focused and rebuilds the Mosaic by hand, unleashing a new power and role, as he has gained the abilities to join the ranks of the Guardians. He uses his newfound abilities to restore the Mosaic to balance, even getting rid of some evildoers in the process. By the issue’s end, he finds a way for all inhabitants of the Mosaic to live harmoniously, definitively ending his tenure as Protector of the Mosaic.
Overall, an issue that ends the story as wild and serene as the story has always been. The story by writer Gerard Jones is great and infinite. The art by the creative team is astounding. Altogether, an issue that gives readers a satisfying conclusion.
