Green Lantern #3 (DC): There was tough competition this week with the non-stop thrill ride and clever design work of Cemetery Beach #5 (Image) by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, as well as the sheer brilliance of the hook and meta commentary surrounding genre and craft in Die #2 (Image) by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans, but I have to give it to Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp for the manic sci-fi extravaganza and confectionary excess packed into the art of Green Lantern #3, reminiscent of the Len Wein and Dave Gibbons stories I grew up on.
