Green Lantern #11

Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Doug Mahnke

William Hand has been part of Geoff Johns' chronicling of Green Lantern's adventures ever since taking over the franchise back in 2004. The next chapter in Black Hand's non-life begins with his return to Earth after spending a long time as an unwilling guest of the Indigo Tribe, and he is ready to take Revenge, not just against Hal Jordan, but on every living thing. Johns continues with the horror themes after the success of Secret of the Indigo Tribe, and brings it up a notch with every fan's favorite word: "Rise!" While the story, dialog, and characterization in the issue are commendable, as well as the teaser of what's to come in the title, something really strange takes place with the pencils. To make it clear, there is nothing wrong with Doug Mahnke; as always, he is at the top of his game; however, there are five inkers in the book, which somehow makes the artwork seem messy and all over the place. Despite the awkward visuals, this issue is very spooky and captivating.
