It’s a quick story that takes place in a matter of minutes (or so it seems) as various members of the Corps assume the tasks that suit them best – Hal, John, Kyle, Soranik. Even Guy Gardner and his new buddy Arkillo – both laid up since their knock-down/drag-out fight a few issues back – enter the fray.
I was disappointed that Earth’s current Green Lanterns, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz, were not featured. In their most recent issue, they were transported to Mogo for a confab with the leaders of the GL Corps. I would expect they are still there, unless the two titles are produced in a vacuum and have individual continuities. I would find that disappointing.
Sandoval and Tarragona have a different rendering technique than other GL artists. Not better, not worse, just different, and it works as well as anyone else’s. The most notable difference is how constructs are depicted. They seem actually drawn – and therefore more three dimensional – than the more ethereal versions I’ve seen other artists present. Those almost seem like a Photoshop effect than a drawing.
