Star Trek/Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds #1
Star Trek/Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds is a sequel to the 2015 crossover comic, Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War. The books focus on the DC Comic Green Lantern characters being transported into the world of the IDW Star Trek comics based on the current film series.
In this issue, we see that since the Lanterns are separated from their universe and their power batteries, they cannot charge their rings and will eventually be unable to use them. Another problem for the Lanterns is that their rings are starting to fall them at times when using them since they cannot be charged. While some characters, like Guy Gardner, are fine not using their ring and staying on Earth, most of the Lanterns are concerned since the rings failing almost caused Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris to die in space.
This issue was a good start for this new story. It looks like the main plot will be finding a new power source for the Lanterns and it will be interesting seeing what will happen since they are in an alternate universe.
Both Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez return as the writer and artist respectfully. The art is good and Hernandez does a good job with the Star Trek characters as they really resemble the actors in the movies. Mike Johnson has written many of the IDW Star Trek comics does well writing for these characters. These crossovers seem to be the only time Johnson has written Green Lantern, and it can be seen slightly. Particularly with Star Sapphire, Carol Ferris, since she seems to act the most out of character in The Spectrum War. But what is great is the interactions between Kirk and Hal. The two characters are pretty similar, but it’s great when Kirk tries to tell Hal what to do.
Overall, this was a good issue that I would definitely recommend for fans of Green Lantern and Star Trek. But it would be best to read Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War.
