Answers finally are shared, as Simon learns of his manipulation at the hands of – well, that would be telling, wouldn’t it? Having been displaced as the writer on Action Comics, I have to wonder if Dan Jurgens had already planned this story in some way, only to be recycled for the benefit of the Green Lantern franchise. Now worries. He pulls it off nicely.


However, the consequences of what Simon has done weigh heavily upon him, and we may soon see a lapse back into old habits. Who among us has not sought solace in the familiar following a major mistake? It seems a natural reaction, one that will not be easily undone.


But I’m glad we finally got here. It seems a long time coming, and we, the audience were due some pay-off. But as it is part five, I fear the climax will be quick and dirty, to fit the six-issue trade paperback format, or worse, long and drawn out. I am hoping two more issues will be enough for Jurgens & Co. to tie off the story.


Scott Hanna steps in to finish the issue; perhaps Marco Santucci fell behind or had another obligation. I have no issue with this, as the art flows with hardly a visual hiccup to be heard.
