After a year of rebuilding the Green Lantern Corps, and adding the strength of the Sinestro Corp, that fragile alliance is now at the tipping point. Betrayal, murder and deception have contaminated the partnership the two groups have formed.


Many doubted the sustainability of the peace, but if/when it collapses, the fallout will be overwhelming for both sides. Hal, John, Soranik and other leaders had so many hopes and dreams for the future, hanging on the Greens and Yellows continuing to work together.


It’s been a great, fun ride to this point, weaving a complex narrative that has built over the past year. I’m pleased that Ethan Van Sciver was here for this momentus conclusion, but as I indicated last time, it may be time for fresh blood. Clearly we have the opportunity for a new beginning. I hope Venditti will continue to build in terms of narrative and characterization, while offering other artists – Rafa Sandoval, for instance – the opportunity to put their mark on the Green Lantern franchise.


My only regret is the complete disconnect with the Green Lanterns title featuring Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. The Corps as a whole was featured in recent issues of that title, but the entire Sinestro Corps Alliance was ignored, just as Simon and Jessica’s presence on Mogo was ignored in Hal Jordan.


Rating: 8/10
