Once again, the cover is misleading. The past few issues, it’s as if the title is featuring the cover for the next chapter. This one shows the Green Lanterns “under attack by the Controlled!” Huh-wha? That’s not what happens in this issue at all.


What does happen is our four Lanterns of Space Sector 2814 go on the offense, in an effort to rescue the Guardians from their one-time brethren, the Controllers – offense being the key word. The focus is on the way the four Lanterns – Hal, John, Guy and Kyle – fit together as a team, each bringing his own strength in support of another’s shortcomings.


If you’re looking for profound character studies or philosophical observations on courage and commitment, look elsewhere. This issue is all action and ass-kicking (which can be refreshing, every so often).


Artwork by Derenick and Herbert is polished and professional, but in a color-centric title like a Green Lantern book, it’s colorist Jason Wright who makes it work. The energy constructs of the individual Lanterns take on the energetic glow, rather than simply the green beams of light I grew up with.


Rating: 8/10
