In this story, the GLs behave less like beat cops and more like seasoned investigators. Through guile, subterfuge and plain old force of will, they piece together clues and follow leads that will hopefully reveal the Controllers plan.
As with last
issue, the cover is misleading. The text reads, “If the Lanterns fall…who will
pay the price?” Well, there’s no indication of the Lanterns falling just yet.
And what kind of price might be paid to ensure their defeat? Will the
Controllers collapse? Will the Guardians disband? Will a Green Lantern die?
Perhaps a GL would sacrifice himself to ensure victory, but not to guarantee
Or maybe I’m just misreading it, I don’t know. I wouldn’t say the cover is unimportant, but measured against the other 20 pages inside, it could easily be disregarded.
