Okay Soranik Natu’s reaction to finding out she has a son in the future with Kyle is intense. I mean she is completely over reacting to Kyle not telling her, and brands him violently with the symbol of the Sinestro Corps. What the hell?! That seems out of character right? Or has she gone crazy? I hope Kyle is okay – he is the greatest of Green Lanterns after all. In the end, John decides to announce to the the Corps that Tomar-Tu murdered a yellow lantern. While I like that John is always honest, that was probably not a good idea. Are we leading to another war with the Sinestro Corps?

Hal is dumb as hell in this issue – completely oblivious to the people around him – and that means Venditti is writing his character well. Meanwhile, I love how Kyle has become another star of this book and is finally back in the spotlight. The bromance between Guy and Arkillo continues to put a smile to my face – I hope they stick together for a while. Speaking of Kyle though, I thought it would be a long time before Soranik find out that the villain from the future was her and Kyle’s kid – but she scans the body and finds out in this issue. The Green Lantern who committed the murder turns out to be Tomar-Tu which I did not see coming. It is revealed by a Vuldarian – is this just an easter egg – or do you think Venditti will reintroduce Guy Gardner’s vuldarian warrior powers again? I’d like to see that.

Two Corps United, But For How Long?

First of all, it is so amazing and gets me all nostolgic to see Kyle Rayner back in his old Green Lantern duds. Too bad he did not make the cover of this book. Can’t we just change it’s title to Kyle Rayner and the Green Lantern Corps and make Hal the Spectre already? This was a good issue and it does give me hope to see the Sinestro and Green Lantern Corps working so well together. I love Arkillo and Guy Gardner’s new bromance especially. The final page cliffhanger is a great twist though.

The Green Lantern Corps and Oa have dissappeared while the Sinestro Corps and War World have taken their places. Sinestro vs. Hal Jordan…that sounds like a snoozefest. I am more interested in what happened to the Green Lantern Corps which it looks like we will get next issue.

This is getting better. I especially liked the moments between Sinestro and his daughter. Basically any moment without Hal Jordan is a good moment to me. But in all seriousness…all I wonder is where is Kyle Rayner!
