So old snake eyes is now in control of Sodom Yat – that is not good for anyone – Yat is Kryptonian-level powerful. Maxwell Lord and Zardor or whatever his name is should team up. I am glad Kilowod and Arisia saved the day – that was a great scene but some of the art made things a bit confusing for me while reading it. Not a bad issue though.

The Green Lanterns under the control of the evil telepath guys all kill themselves in a sad and disturbing scene and Kilowog is deeply affected. Meanwhile, Guy Gardner reveals why he made the pact with Atrocitus. Interesting stuff.

Guy’s in trouble! The telepath guy I can never rember his name has control of Sodom Yat. Shit! But the real break-out star – as the cover suggests – is Bleez. She is just hilarious as she casually kills of the planet guards and drinks her own blood as the other lanterns talk. I love her! I wonder if she will be staying her or transfering to the new Red Lantern Corps book when it begins.

Guy Gardner’s breathable, unbreathable torture was hilarious…otherwise I found this issue to be pretty forgettable. I have enjoyed this book a lot so far but I can’t figure out why this issue bored me to tears. Hm.

Umm Brother Warth is awesome! He just puts his hand around Bleez and says there is no fighting on Odym and he has got her! I love his calm Buddha-like attitude, he is the perfect Blue Lantern. I crack up everytime Guy calls him Babar haha! Anyways, we find out the true threat in the unknown sectors – someone is draing the power of the Green Lantern rings slowly. I think this is supposed to be the guy who has kidnapped all the telepaths and is using them to control rookie lanterns but I could be wrong. I like that Bleez is sticking around with our merry crew as she is an awesome looking character. Poor Sodom Yat can never catch a break with his own people though.

So was thinking about Gates…since he comes from the Earth-247 Legion, could there be an Earth-0 version of himself running around that he could run into? Levitz should deal with that at some point. Anyways this book is fileld with so many plots and storylines one can always find something to like. This issue was great and I wonder why Shadow Lass is so interested in Earth-Man, who will be the new Legion Leader, and all that jazz. Levitz continues to kick ass here.

The Unknown Sectors

This new third ongoing Green Lantern book was a surprise to me as I didn’t see it coming, but I am glad it is here because I certainly enjoyed the heck out of it as Guy Gardner takes center stage on a mission to the unknown sectors. I had no idea there were unknown sectors but hey it is always cool to have the DC Universe expanded. I didn’t really appreciate how creepy looking Bleez was until this issue…awesome character design. She reminds me of a Red Lantern Harley Quinn or something. I wonder what this mission is Guy is supposed to be getting involved in and why Hal will be mad at him for it. Also, why are the Guardians so easily convinced of things lately? Perhaps they are up to something? Tomasi is as good as he was on Green Lantern Corps here and Pasarin’s art is breathtaking. He really stepped up his game for this book.

The funny thing about this book is it is supposed to star Hal Jordan but Hal Jordan is so boring that Johns mainly focuses on the supporting cast. Atrocitius really shines in this issue and his fun cat. Lobo showing up was a surprise too. I liked this issue a lot and I wonder who is kidnapping the entities and what this has to do with those ressurected by the white light. Mahnke’s art is as beautiful as ever too.

It turns out Atrocitus hired Lobo himself to attack him so that GL, Sinestro, and Carol would side with him. I wonder why? The best part of this issue though had to be fantastic origin of Dek-Star the Red Lantern Cat. As a cat owner myself, it really warmed my heart but was so sad too. He is full of rage because his owner was murdered. Great little story. I hope he sticks around.
