    Issue two is entertaining with lots of references to how this world is different but familiar at the same time. Along with some of the other revelations we've seen as to how the DCU has been changed and I'm really loving this event. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Felipe Massafera's artwork isn't bad, although I find I like the look of the issue better when it's in outer space (or at least dealing with the alien characters) than I do on Earth amongst the humans. His Abin Sur and Sinestro look great, Cyborg and Hal Jordan aren't quite as sharp. There are good moments here, but not great ones, although the tie-in to the Flashpoint: Hal Jordan miniseries is appreciated. Read Full Review

    While not restoring my faith in the series, this issue essentially sucks just a little bit less in how its executed. Large and important sections are dropped and that skimming of events weakens the narrative overall. Abin still isn't a likeable character and his approach to his main mission and his assigned one to find the Entity could be handled a lot better, both on his end and by the Guardian's themselves. With some less than well done artwork in a few places and a jumpy plot, it's the concepts that have to hold you enough to enjoy it. It doesn't quite achieve that either though simply because it does push things towards the familiar again and because the characters just haven't come across well enough to make it interesting. It's all a little too pat and easy, especially when Sinestro starts talking about a prophecy called Flashpoint. Read Full Review

    Despite everyone behaving as if the universe is going to end (because it is), the issue is strangely lifeless and unconvincing. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this book also shares another similarity with the film. Sinestro's inevitable fall from grace is handled with the same speed and lack of craft. The relationship between these two Lanterns was the prime appeal of the series, and it's disappointing to see it rushed to an abrupt conclusion here. Will there be anything of value left to redeem the final issue? Read Full Review
