This prestige format one-shot from DC is part of their Elseworlds series where a twist is applied to a familiar hero usually by changing their normal setting. This mash up of Green Lantern with 1001 Nights was written by Terry LaBan who is more of an underground comic writer/artist but has done some work for major companies including The Dreaming for Vertigo and a Grendel mini-series for Dark Horse. The art was by Rebecca Guay whose work I know from the Black Orchid ongoing series from the 90s a [...]
Laban's one-shot comic blends the modern myths of the Green Lantern with the ancient legends of "The Arabian Nights", as the beautiful Scheherazade tells fantastical stories of a magic lamp, a jade-colored genie, and their owner, Al Jhor Dan.The wonderful illustrations enhances the very short retelling of this famous set of fables which borrows from the different (less well-known) stories as translated by Sir Richard Burton, but with the aim of providing the ruling sultan with lessons on how to [...]
This book is just fun. Giving the Green Lantern feel with an 1001 arabian nights feel and setting, make for interesting and cool to look at stories. Power rings and lanterns are replaced by Genies in Lamps. At first it is kind of like ok.whatever they are doing something strange but the concept kept growing on me and I had a lot of fun reading this. It is not even close to being a best Elseworld story but it is extremely solid.
A simple little mashup of folklore and DC Universe lore, this story is accessible and fun even to those who don't follow Green Lantern (I, a Gotham girl to the core, do not.) Its real appeal lies in the glorious pictures by my favorite fantasy artist, Rebecca Guay. 64 glorious full-color pages of her work are a delight and a treat, and create the magic that makes this book work.
I am not even a Green Lantern fan (no shade, just not familiar with the franchise) but I loved the hell out of this book. To be fair, I would probably love anything that Rebecca Guay illustrated, but still. Beautiful book, compelling classic story, neat surprise tie-ins (okay I guess I do know about the (view spoiler)[green versus yellow thing (hide spoiler)])'s just great. Read it.
I really liked the art, but I loved the story too -- the cleverness of the main character, his growth as a person, it all was beautifully made, and damn fun to book.The art isn't the best Guay has to offer, but still pretty lovely.And I don't even like the Green Lantern superhero!
It is as the name of the book, that simple. Green Lantern mixed up with 1001 Arabian nights. It a pleasant read if you like green lantern and mildly remember 1001 Arabian Nights.
I bought this for the art (Rebecca Guay), stayed for the story. The author twists the origin of Green Lantern into 1001 Arabian Nights like taffy.
Literary geekgasm. Dig the tie-in between Arabian Nights and the GL universe. Also beautifully illustrated
