We learn more about Doctor Polaris’s past which is something even I don’t know much about. It seems he was discredited in the scientific community but for real reasons or fraudulent ones? It is unclear. What is clear is he now has schizophrenia and can’t stop himself from putting on his Polaris suit when he really just wants to save his brother’s life. Meanwhile, John Stewart decides to bring in Rami, Jessica, and Simon to be trained after it is reported Rami is with them. It was a decent issue with great art. I am still rather enjoying this series.

As happy as I am to have a new Green Lantern book that is not starring boring old Hal Jordan, I can’t say I was excited to read this. Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz have not interested me one bit in the Justice League book. Simon just seems like a jerk and Jessica is so unsure of herself it becomes not sweet, but annoying. I was hoping under a different write I would feel differently. This issue did not win me over, but maybe future issues will because the art was good and I am interested in the Red Lantern sub-plot. Oh and Dex-Starr!
