Where do you run when your planet dies? A force of destruction is running rampant in the galaxy...a force that can only consume; a vortex that wipes out star systems in a heartbeat. It's called The Blind, and its next target is Earth! Green Lantern only has a slim chance of stopping it, but The Black Circle won't let him have a chance at all.

    I really didn't expect to enjoy this issue as much as I did, but I have to say that as I made my way through this issue I grew more & more impressed by how well Benjamin Raab managed to build up the tension, and by the time the final pages of this issue rolled around I have to say I was fully invested in the material. The book is a very solid example of how keeping it simple can actually be quite effective, as the villains are nicely defined, and the basic threat isn't overly complex. Now there is some room for a couple of plot twists, as I'm not sure I fully trust the group that Kyle allied himself with, but the introduction of the real villain in the final pages would seem to draw the focus away from them, and over to a more tangible threat. A very exciting issue, and I highly recommend it for any one looking for a good, old fashioned space adventure where the stakes are set at a ridiculously high level. Read Full Review
