The best holiday tradition in comics returns in the next chapter of the epic Santa saga by visionary Grant Morrison and Eisner Award-nominated artist Dan Mora!

Review: The Green Lantern #2

This new direction for the Green Lanterns continues to take things back to basics in a way with a focus on the police aspect of the characters and a few scenes that are straight cop tropes.

The Green Lantern #2 features writing from Grant Morrison, art by Liam Sharp, color by Steve Oliff, and lettering by Tom Orzerchowski.

The Green Lantern #1

(W) Grant Morrison (A/CA) Liam Sharp
In Shops: Nov 07, 2018
SRP: $4.99

Superstar writer Grant Morrison (Batman, All-Star Superman) returns to DC alongside red-hot artist Liam Sharp (The Brave AND the Bold, Wonder Woman) to launch a new, ongoing series: THE GREEN LANTERN!

In this debut issue, when Earth’s space cop, Hal Jordan, encounters an alien hiding in plain sight, it sets off a chain of events that rocks the Green Lantern Corps-and quite possibly the Multiverse at large-to its very core. There’s an inter-galactic conspiracy afoot, as well as a traitor in the GL Corps’ ranks, so strap in for more mind-bending adventures in this masterpiece in the making.

Review: Captain Ginger #1

When the human race died out, the cats inherited the Earth! Or at least one starship. Now the intrepid Captain Ginger struggles to keep his fellow felines united against a hostile universe.

How many cat jokes can you pack into 35 pages of comic? Writer Stuart Moore seems to take up that challenge in Captain Ginger, a pulp-ish adventure that sees humanity destroyed and cats evolved and spacefaring. It’s a crazy fun concept and the comic seems to continue AHOY Comics‘ mix of playing it straight and being a joke at the same time.

Every page seems pack with some sort of sight gag through the art of June Brigman, inks by Roy Richardson, and colors of Veronica Gandini. Richard Starkings and Jimmy Bentancourt provide the lettering. From small details on the cats to the inclusion of scratching posts, the comic doesn’t take itself too seriously and seems to be having fun with it all.

It being an AHOY release, there’s lots of extras including a comic from Shannon Wheeler, some interviews, and prose entry from Grant Morrison that includes an illustration from Phil Hester.

If you’re an individual who enjoys cat memes, this is a comic for you and though I’m not really a fan at all, I still found the comic entertaining. It’s a prefect mix of cat jokes and space adventuring that sets up a world I want to find out more about. It’s another win for AHOY Comics continuing their manta that we should expect more.
