The Green Lanterns have a problem on Ungara, the home planet of Abin Sur and Katma Tui. Since depositing the displaced Molites there a few issues back, there has been a growing wave of xenophobia, threatening to return the world to its more warlike ways.


Jessica is confident they can handle the problem. Simon is, too. Jessica would feel better were it not for Simon’s growing personal involvement with Liseth, daughter of Ungara’s regent. But when the Regent’s favored commodore is killed and the Molites are the chief suspects, it’s up to the Lanterns to suss out the situation.


Barberia and Santorelli’s artwork is terrific. Their designs of an alien world is a mix between technologically advanced and a history of war. Arreola’s colors add the proper amount of depth without diminishing the rendering, or overworking the illustrations. The three of them make an excellent team.


Tim Seeley remains on the book, and he seems to be doing well so far. It’s a far cry from his Nightwing setting, but I see that as a positive. There’s only so many masked-avenger-of-the-night stories one can tell effectively.


Rating: 10/10
