APOKOLIPS-NOT AS SAFE A PLACE TO HIDE A WAR CRIMINAL AS YOU’D THINK!

But while the League thought Apokolips would be the safest place to store a wanted murderer, there are others out on the hunt ...

This is so bad... It really has nothing to do with Green Lantern or Jessica Cruz. Why would the writer choose to make the story based in Coast City? Jessica is from Portland and Coast City is Hal Jordan's City.

Just stop this bullshit. Sinestro dispises Kyle Ranyer because he considers Kyle an unworthy Green Lantern. Why would he have an eye for Jessica, the most unworthy earth lantern of all? And Hal's always been an empathetic person. He mentored Jessica when she joined the league. They have a close relationship like brother and sister. The writer is just dwarfing Hal to push Jessica, shamefully . >It's sad to come to know, in these days, Hal Jordan, or his archenemy, is just a plot tool to push those secondary lanterns. And it's really a weird and stupid business strategy since Hal is still DC's most popular Green Lantern. more

I know perhaps nobody cares about Sinestro except me but I'm a huge fan of this character. Sinestro having a threesome is totally out of character. He is not that kind of villains who indulge in sex. Instead, he is a tyrant who addicts himself to power, to authority. Making him randomly have sex just falls to a new low. Obviously Thorne knows nothing about the GL franchise. He knows nothing about more

He’s not opposed to sex. I mean he was a married man and have a daughter. That’s different than having an orgy with abandon. Sinestro craves order.

While we've seen the destruction of the League a number of times, Zdarsky's story is something a little more. The characterization is strong and the interactions engaging and entertaining. It reminds me of how much I miss seeing Hal Jordan interact with his contemporaries and I hope that this is the start of a trend of seeing this.

My favorite book this week.

So this issue we learn that several fan favorite GL's were killed with no fanfare at all - what a waste of the rich legacy that has been built up over the years. The artwork in the front half continues to be a travesty for the eyes.

There's literally nothing of value or interest happening here. What an awful series.

...Of course Hal is Parallax again, the move literally no one asked for but Thorne needed to put in the book to satisfy his Hal Jordan hate boner. A mess overall, I'm giving up on this book. I'll give him something, though, he managed to make Teen Lantern even more annoying than in the Bendis era, something I thought would be difficult to do.

The series was originally planned with Hal Jordan being the Emerald Knight, but for some obvious reason it was changed. Now we can see this character called John Stewart based in Hal's Coast City, developing a relationship with Hal's villain, Sinestro.
