    Theres not much else to say besides this issue is a must have for fans of The Sinestro Corps War. Its also great for anyone who wants a look inside the mind of a tragic villain. Alan Burnett crafts a great story and a great segue into Green Lantern #24, as well as a plethora of questions surrounding how Hank Henshaw will ultimately die. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 3, 2007

    This issue pretty much did everything right in my eyes. Solid retelling of Cyborg's origin to let people unfamiliar with Cyborg learn all about him in a quick and concise manner. Excellent progression of the Corps War storyline - something last week's Parallax failed to do. And, finally, the excellent insights into Cyborg's desire for a final death and his climactic battle with Superman capped off a great issue and a more than worthy addition to John's space epic Sinestro Corps War story.

    IGN - Dan Phillips Oct 3, 2007

    Like the Tales of the Sinestro Corps Presents: Parallax special from a few weeks back, this issue also transitions from the origin story to the greater struggle currently taking place in the main Green Lantern title, with the second half of the special providing the first glimpse of the Sinestro Corps War as it spills into Earth's atmosphere. For that reason as well as the important character work mentioned earlier, this one-shot is the perfect companion to the main Sinestro Corps War event and another testament to how to handle such crossover tie-ins the right way; it's simultaneously noteworthy and substantial for those who can't get enough of this storyline while also not essential for the casual reader. Patrick Blaine's art, while not as strong as Ethan Van Sciver or Ivan Reis' fantastic work, is nevertheless perfectly competent, with strong, crisp line-work and an energetic feel to the large-scale action sequences.

    While competently done, this book was depressing, with an antagonist who comes off as more of a big whiner than a truly scary player. Read Full Review

    Another underwhelming and unnecessary entry in the otherwise exciting Sinestro Corps War. Read Full Review

    Even then, there was not much to like about this issue. I couldnt stand the work done on Kyllax in the previous one-shot, and I liked it a whole lot more than this issue. I realize that Hanks origin hasnt been touched in 17 years, but certainly more justice can be given to the character than this. Too little emotion in the action and bad use of 22 pages lead to a poor example of a tie in to a successfully selling series. Read Full Review
