GREENER PASTURES Review
Greener Pastures - Michael Bukowski,Michael Wehunt,John Boden,K. Allen Wood

This year I’ve been lucky enough to come across several noteworthy short story collections. Greener Pastures is one of those. Comprised of eleven quiet tales that take on the genre “weird horror,” these stories seep into the skin and take root in the marrow.

 

This is not a collection which yields its fruits easily. One must work for it. I found myself skimming a bit last night as I grew tired and I realized things were going over my head. I had to reread a few passages. That wasn’t the book’s fault; it was mine. As Stephen King once said, good books don’t give up their secrets all at once. Quite often these stories went in directions I wasn’t expecting. This author is daring and unafraid, and it shows.

 

I think my personal favorite is “The Inconsolable,” or maybe the title story. Heck, they’re all winners! A worthy addition to the collection of anyone who enjoys tales of quiet and cosmic horror, this is a collection literary tales not to be missed.

Review: Green Arrow/Green Lantern: Greener Pastures (Part I) by Chuck Dixon and Dougie Braithwaite

Fills in Cliff Hanger square on DC Comic Book Bingo card

 

This is an oldie (1998) but I really enjoyed this beginning of a two-part team up starring a new Green Arrow (Connor Hawke, son of the original Green Arrow) and an old Green Lantern (Hal Jordan, who is making a trip to the future that he will never see). The storyline was what drew me in; the Greens take on eco-terrorists who killed Connor's dad and are set on destroying Mt Rainer/Washington state. And that is where this part of the story ends. As for the artwork, it was clean and easy to read; for being close to 20 years old, the artwork and story didn't feel dated at all. I need to find the second issue of this story because I really like this new Green Arrow and Hal Jordan is my favorite of the Green Lantern corps. 3.5 stars.
