Star Trek/Green Lantern:
The Spectrum War
Star Trek and Green Lantern come from two different universes (television and graphic novels) – universes which in most worlds would never meet. Yet Mike Johnson has made a very nice first attempt to bring these very different worlds together.
The characters from both universes are present – from Star Trek we have the essential characters – Captain Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Chkov, and Scotty. The Green Lantern universe brings the collection of rings – both good and evil – representing the emotional spectrum of colors and the Green Lantern Corp including appearances from Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner, among others.
The story is a fun reminder of the histories of both story lines, but the new book never seems to take off and grab this reader. Having said that, the premise has promise; this reader will hope to see more sories featuring two of my favorite Sci-Fi and graphic novel characters from an earlier generation working together to protect the universe. And there are hints dropped that there may be more to come. I will continue to hope.
