relicI just finished reading Green Lantern Annual #2, the conclusion to the “Lights Out” event, and became very infuriated when closing the back cover. I am a huge fan of the Green Lantern universe. I always answer, without hesitation, that Green Lantern is my favorite superhero. I have always been willing to debate why he is better than any other superhero out there. However, this issue is a perfect example of why I feel like I can’t recommend recent issues of any of the GL titles to people right now.

The preview for the book even said “Relic arrives on Oa as this massive story kicks off! Can the different Lantern Corps come together to stop this powerful enemy? Lights Out will see Lanterns die, others change allegiances—and nothing will be the same ever again! Trust us: We MEAN IT!” (more…)

Sometime in the future the world is flooded, a lone person glides into the washed out ruins of a city. Moments after they arrived a wave comes in and smashes through the ruins. Back in modern day, Dr. Archer is recruited by a government agency to help research something, a mystery that was uncovered off the coast of Alaska.
