At the end of last month's The Green Lantern by Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp, Steve Oliff and Tom Orzechowski, Hal Jordan, dismissed from the Green Lanterns for murdering a slavetrader, masqueraded as the four armed Western-inspired Man With No Name. Turns out his name was Hal. And he wanted to join the Blackstars.
Basically, a bit like the Green Lantern police-spinoff/rival legion, the Darkstars. But more undead. And in tomorrow's The Green Lantern #4 we have a vampire planet to test Hal Jordan's resolve. But who is testing whom? And are there some familiar faces?
Hang on, is that Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt from Interview With a Vampire bottom left? Morbius, Cryptkeeper, Nosferatu… is this planet Vorr more of a League Of Extraordinary Vampires?
Blackstar at Zenith – hesit may also be worth reminded reades of Grant Morrison's early suprhero comic Zenith for 2000AD. At odds with publisher Rebellion, could ths be a way for Grant to have a dig back?
The sound of blood bells, how does that differ from…
So what or who will Hal Jordan be willing to sacrifice? How about G'nort?
The dark side of aromatherapy there…
GREEN LANTERN #5
(W) Grant Morrison (A/CA) Liam Sharp
"Blackstar at Zenith!" Hal Jordan has abandoned the Green Lantern Corps to join the Blackstars! But to do so, he'll need to convince their leader, Countess Belzebeth, and pass an initiation test. Which means he must survive a series of trials on the vampire planet Vorr, whose entire population wants to feast upon him! It's cosmic goth at its bloodiest…with a cliffhanger that's even bloodier!
