5.2 Reasons Ivan Reis Rocks

When it comes to creating unforgettable comic books, having a great artist as well as an amazing writer sort of comes part-and-parcel with the package. You know, cause of the whole graphic storytelling thing. It's, like, literally one-half of the phrase.

A skilled artist not only creates eye-popping imagery but also uses that imagery to bring the story to life through panel-to-panel sequential storytelling. It's a difficult skill to master, but if skills were hit points, artist Ivan Reis might as well be a Level 99 Kryptonian Flame Dragon.

THIS JUST HAPPENED: GREEN LANTERN #59

GREEN LANTERN #59 has got it all – strong character moments involving some of the icons of the DCU, action, tantalizing clues and a helluva cliffhanger at the end, all masterfully presented by writer Geoff Johns and artist Doug Mahnke. And that cliffhanger’s what “This Just Happened” is all about. So my first question is – have you read the issue? If not, make your way to the shop, plop down some cash and give it a read.
