”Twilight of the Guardians” begins here, with the last two benevolent Guardians of the Universe counseling John Stewart on his leadership of the Green Lantern Corps. But John’s respect for the Guardians has waned considerably in the wake of their collective betrayal of everything the Corps stood for. Sure, they may be immortals, but they are not gods, and hardly infallible.


But shortly after their little chat, Ganthet and Sayd are attacked by other-worldly beings who seem to have a grudge against the Guardians. But who could be that powerful?

I normally don’t do spoilers, but DC already did it for me, with a misleading cover of Hal, and the cover blurb, “Under the knife of the Controllers!” Okay, so the Controllers are the big bad guys. But how does Hal come under their knife? Well, I’m not sure, because…


While John is having his chat with the Guardians, Hal and Kyle are assisting in the evacuation of the planet Molta, where seismic eruptions have endangered the population. Y’know, this would have been a great opportunity to tie the two GL books closer together, given Simon and Jessica’s recent evacuation of another planet for a similar reason. Just sayin’


So it would appear the wrong cover was used on this issue. Or maybe not, in the case of the variant, I haven’t seen it. But here’s the thing: not every issue has to have a variant. If this issue’s regularly scheduled cover was unavailable, go with the variant for the entire print run. I doubt many fans will cry that loud.


Rating: 5/10 (points off for the cover spoiler)
