“Sinestro’s Law” part two! As Sinestro’s grip around the universe grows tighter, Guy Gardner takes on the mission to bring the Green Lantern Corps back from the edge of oblivion to reclaim their role as protectors of the cosmos.
This issue really helps to define in detail how the Green Lantern Corps is doing. They are down and on the brink of being out. They don’t have any of their resources, no back up, and they aren’t currently aware of the biggest problem, which is that Sinestro and his team are now in control. It’s easy to say they have seen better days.
Writer Robert Venditti is also starting to set up a few things in the background which will be covered later. Like how Soranik Natu isn’t exactly happy with her father Sinestro for lying to her about his physical condition. Considering she used to be a Green Lantern, there is a chance she could see the error of her ways and end up wearing a different ring color by the end of this story. It’s a slow building of drama but it’s just enough to keep the readers coming back for more.
Artist Jordi Tarrogona and Rafa Sandoval just keep outdoing themselves with each issue. One of the most notable examples of their incredible skill this issue came in a two page splash where Hal summons a truck to hit his opponents. The detail work on the truck and all of the different constructs which are used is very intense. Hopefully they will continue to keep up this level of quality.
This book continues to be one of the best titles to come out of DC’s Rebirth event. The way things are going, it should be easy for the team to maintain this incredible work. At least until the end of the first story of the new run.
