This is part 2 of War of the Green Lanterns which began here and it was awesome! Ganthet tells Kyle Rayner it was no accident he was given the last ring and that he was the Corps’ best hope then and still is today! Hell to the ya he is! He is a dreamer with a heart; the perfect Lantern. Anyways, it looks like Parallax has taken over the entire Corps I imagine he was never able to do that before when he was stuck in the battery because he didn’t have Krona’s help. Things are getting crazy!

The Weaponer becomes a member of the Sinestro Corps and Firestorm shows up in this issue. The whole thing with Firestorm was kind of unnecessary but I always love when crossovers like this happen so I don’t care. There really wasn’t enough Kyle in this issue but oh well.

The Truce Dilemma

The interesting thing about this issue and this storyline in general is there is no clear enemy – the Green Lanterns began fighting the Weaponer but are now fighting the Sinestro Corps with him but they really CAN’T fight the Sinestro Corps because of the truce between the two Corps so they are are in kind of a pickle. It is great to see that Sinestro does care for his daughter after all – in his own way of course.

This was an okay issue although I felt like more could have happened – it was just the reveal of what the pact between Ganthet, Guy, and Atrocitus was and the Weaponer taking down most of the Lanterns except for Kyle and Soranik. That is not usual for Bedard who usually packs a lot into an issue. It was still good though. Not much else to say about it.

You know what made me cheer in this issue…when Sinestro asks Kyle who trained him to fight, and Kyle hits him hard and says Batman!!! Hells to the ya. Another reason why Kyle Rayner is better then Hal Jordan, Batman likes him better!  Anyways, Kirkham’s art really impressed me in this issue as he can draw scenery wonderfully. Just look at his Oa! He is a great guy to draw a book mostly set in Alien Landscapes. The moments between Soranik and the Weaponer were really great as it kinda sorta humanized the villain and showed how caring and compassionate Soranik can be. Great issue.
