All Tomasi can come up with for villains in the Green Lantern Crops is intergalactic ninjas. They have some mystery leader and teleporting powers, but they’re really just ninjas. It makes the comic feel like it’s from the eighties.
Maybe it also feels like its from the eighties because it all of a sudden reads like any other Green Lantern Corps comic I read back then. Once it’s revealed the team is saving a planet of adorable little creatures, I immediately thought back to the eighties comics.
Of course, being a straightforward DC Universe sci-fi book isn’t a bad thing. Tomasi does fine with all the writing. The action moves at a good pace and none of the characters are poorly written. There are a couple bad lines of dialogue but nothing too bad.
And the Pasarin and Hanna art is good.
Corps is completely unambitious and thoroughly readable.
