Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #1 (Boom! Studios)

Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #1 (Boom! Studios)

Robbie Thompson/Justin Jordan (w) Barnaby Bagenda (a)

Having been somewhat disappointed with the Tarzan/Planet of the Apes crossover from Dark Horse it was with some trepidation that I picked up this comic. There is after all a second series of Star Trek/Green Lantern still going from IDW. Could this be a bit of an overkill?

I have to say this series gets off to a great start. Sinestro sacrificing some of his Yellow Lanterns for as un-yet specified purpose and Cornelius finds an artifact whilst out in the wilderness looking for the remains of human civilisation.

Thing is this artifact a ring is not the product of human handiwork and as expected an alarm is rung on Oa. The Guardians order Hal Jordan and Kilowog to stand down. Nothing to worry about. Yeah right. It's a long time since us readers trusted the words of those conniving little blue men.

However Hal, Guy Gardner and the rest ignore their orders and go to investigate and bump into a rampaging Sinestro. Meanwhile when Corneilius puts on the ring something happens.

An old universal power is reborn.

  1. some "cross-overs" are easier to "believe" than others. e.g Judge Dredd/Batman...o.k. Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern...that is pushing it too much for me!
