As Angel gets closer to redemption, the full truth of his horrific past as Angelus will be revealed—and there may be no way to escape his darkest secret of all.

Review: Green Lantern: Mosaic #7

Green Lantern Mosaic #7

Seth McFarlane has changed television forever. He leaves fans wondering what he will do next. His show Family Guy helped redefine what an animated family television show could be, making way for many imitators. Then there’s American Dad, which was a crazier version of what the typical American family is supposed to be. As far as his live-action television ventures they’ve been hit or miss.

His show Dads was definitely something not watchable. I personally couldn’t get through a whole episode. His newest venture, The Orville, has got to be one of the better science fiction shows in recent memory. What most people thought was going to be a parody of Star Trek, feels like its spiritual successor. Within the last season, there was a storyline where a supposed alliance became a secret plan to invade and overtake, making a once-beloved crew member, a sordid villain. In the seventh issue of Green Lantern: Mosaic, John Stewart is caught in a war between two factions, where one looks to destroy the other.

We find John breaking up a skirmish between a tribe of native Americans who have been uprooted and a group of mystics who hate each other and often call him in to stop a fight. This leads him to look for a long-term solution, one that would give both parties what they want and John the peace he has strongly desired since entering this world, as he finds it out of all places, in music. As it soothes both parties but ultimately envelopes John himself. By issue’s end, John and both factions find serenity in the very thing that overtook them in the first place.

Overall, a head-trip of an issue, one that confuses but still amazes the reader. The story by Gerard Jones is smart and immersive. The art by the creative team is captivating. Altogether, a story that shows even your worst fear can be your greatest joy if given the chance.

Review: Green Lantern: Mosaic #6

Green Lantern: Mosaic #6

As a fan of Star Trek, I have always been fascinated with how deftly Gene Roddenberry used his art form as a platform. He often left fans of the show pondering things beyond the surface entertainment. There’s a reason so many people have shown their devotion to the franchise. For good reason. The show pushed its viewers when other shows were just mindless entertainment. It often made their audience peer into their hearts and minds and subscribed to the concept that each person must do better for all of humanity.

Every franchise that came out in the 1990s made the band even stronger. As my favorites were Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Both shows gave fans a deeper look into this universe. One of the best stories to come from Roddenberry’s mind was from the original series, “Arena.” It gave viewers a battle of brute and smarts while asking what’s the reason for the fight in the first place. In a fight similar to Kirk and Gorn, we have a fight between two Lanterns, both of equal skill in the sixth issue of Green Lantern: Mosaic.

We find John as he meditates only to be interrupted by Kilowog. Kilowag has brought his recruits, Kreon and Boodikka, to train with him on Mosaic. He starts by doing a quick mind scan showing their elevated disgust for each other. As he utilizes their worst fears, and turns it against them, only for them to work together. By issue’s end, John has gotten these two to work together, proving to Kilowog, that sometimes pushing beyond their limits, is the only way you know where they truly lie.

Overall, this issue adds a layer of depth to this book. The story by Gerard Jones is reflective, intellectual, and expertly plotted. The art by the creative team is stunning. Altogether, an issue that will make readers see just how powerful this book truly is.
