Green Lantern's Light Shines Bright...

Picked up a copy of "Green Lantern: First Flight" last week (with the free mini-action figure!) and watched it.

I liked mostly everything about this movie. All the character designs, the backgrounds, the whole look of the film was great!! The writing and dialogue was sharp and intense, and the animation was very, very nice. As someone who was a GL fan as a kid, but lost interest over the years due to the general mishandling of the character, this was just pure joy to watch.

I got a little bit of a Star Wars feeling from this movie. With the Lanterns acting as Jedi, and the guardians behaving the way the Jedi Council did. Solid characterization, especially evil Sinestro. Hal Jordan is a distinctly unique hero, never once sounding like a typical super hero.

Green Lantern: First Flight was a more-than-worthy addition to the growing ranks of DC animated films. i'm all for more films starring characters other than Superman & Batman (although the upcoming "Public Enemies" sounds pretty good and has a lot of great guest stars!).

awesome piece bro!!! nice to see ya stepping it up. but if i needed to nitpick just a bit...i'd say it was a bit cramped looking.

love all the elements, the earth looks great, the logo looks cool, that green background burst is cool love that ya put his mantra in their and of course hal looks bad ass flying through space but....all of it on one page might be too much.

Yeah, i see what you mean, Jason - i think adding the text was too much looking back on it now. Still, thanks for the comments and seeing you and others posting is making me step up my game! (Wanna keep this blog alive.)
