So I recently dropped The Green Lantern by Grant Morrison. Initially I had a favorable opinion of it, based on the art (Liam Sharp does amazing work), and based on the fact that revelations made in later issues would somewhat clear my confusion over what I was reading. Towards the end of the 12 issue run though, I would be lying if I said I understood half of what I was reading. Kind of embarrassed that I don’t even know what to ask…that’s how convoluted I found the material. I like space stuff though…and I’m interested in the whole Green Lantern thing. There’s a lot of rave reviews online about this series, (none of which seem to be as confused as I am) and I can’t help but feel that I’m missing out.
- Am I alone in this department? Anyone feel the same? Maybe it’s easy to follow and I’m just not very bright? Maybe I need background material?
- Should I give it another chance? I think they’re doing a Blackstars mini-series now to bridge the gap between the 12-issue runs.
- Any helpful sites that can help clarify the story a bit more?
