Guest writer Sterling Gates wraps up his 2-part storyline exploring the past of Boodikka, one of the recent GL members to undergo transformation into an Alpha Lantern! Can her fellow Green Lanterns unearth even a tiny bit of her former self? Or has her new programming taken over entirely?

    A quieter, more intimate tale in the annals of the continuing adventures of the Green Lantern Corps which still brings progress and change along with it. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a fairly decent issue. Its got some good story to it and it definitely puts Boodikka on a higher level of importance than the other Alpha Lanterns. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out especially with Final Crisis on the horizon. While the past two issues of this series are a bit different than what we have seen previously, they get the job done and add a level of intrigue to the Alphas. Read Full Review

    Another thing that made no sense to me was her sister. She, whether she knew it or not, willingly attacked space ships and helped her sisters in their pirating efforts. Ignorance is no excuse for crimes and just because she has strong willpower, the Guardians only punishment for her was to make her have to charge her ring in her sister's chest. She remains on active duty with full priveleges other than that small set back. They don't even make her report to boot camp with Kilowog. Combined with letting a murder victim go free in Green Lantern, the Guardians' are really crappy at the whole law enforcement thing. Read Full Review

    The good news is that this was just a two issue break from the main story, and there's more Mogul and Sinestro Corps fallout in the next issue. But honestly, you could pass this issue (and the last for that matter) and not have missed very much. Or, actually, anything at all. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern #22 was a pedestrian read. If you are a fan of Boodika then you will certainly love this issue. And readers who are die-hard Green Lantern fans and enjoy the any plotline related to the Green Lantern Corps no matter how small will also enjoy this issue. However, I can't recommend Green Lantern Corps to the casual reader or the average Green Lantern fan who just enjoys either Hal Jordan based stories or big events. Read Full Review
