A Year of Cool Comics - Day 153

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here's the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we take a look at a bit of an under-the-radar graphic novel, J.M. DeMatteis and Seth Fisher's cool Green Lantern original graphic novel, Green Lantern: Will World


While DeMatteis does a nice job on the story (and dialogue) for this book, I think even he would concede that the book is mostly designed so that the late, great Fisher could just go nuts on the art, as the idea of a literal "Land of Odd" was EXACTLY the sort of thing that Fisher excelled at - drawing weird, fantastic, amazing things.

The book opens up with an intriguing beginning...

Soon Hal ends up in the Land of Odd, a strange city of extreme poverty right next to extreme wealth. He finds his way to a strange inn filled with strange people...

After a rest, he is consumed by questions - just check out how Fisher shows this...

As things began to become more clear, we get this brilliant sequence as Hal discovers that he is a Green Lantern (note that he does not yet know what a Green Lantern IS)...

To find out just what the deal is with this seemingly magic land that Hal is stuck in, you need to go find this graphic novel! It is well worth your searching! I made a point of not even showing you any of Fisher's magnificent double-page splashes! Soooo good!
