The short of it:
Two powerless Green Lanterns on the run from an army of psychotic sociopaths that were so evil that they were forced into being the Indigo Lantern Corps. Ten seconds without their rings and they’re screaming for Green Lantern blood, seriously, not good people. Hal and Sinestro make a run for it, while at the same time, so does William Hand. Hal and Sin try to figure out a way to get the Indigo Battery working again and reignite the Corps, thus stopping psychos from being psycho, and what it winds up being is a lot of Hal trying to reassure Natromo that this is doable even without Abin Sur, and a lot of Sinestro beating people with his bare hands. It takes a single Indigo Lantern to feel compassion without their ring to bring the Corps back online, and it looks like our Green Lantern’s are going to be free to go….but then we see a big bad of potential epic proportions return on the last page.
What I liked:
What I didn’t like:
Yeah, these covers are totally out of order. This cover is Sinestro imprisoned by the Indigo Tribe, but that happened last issue, and Black Hand was on the cover to last months issue despite that he figures to be the situation next issue. They all look great, but it’s confusing to see them so blatantly disorganized.
I love how when a man puts on a Lantern ring he seems to get a full body outfit, but whenever a woman does she goes from fully dressed to space bikini.
Man, the William Hand pages are just brutal looking. Credit goes to Doug Mahnke who is just a master at making things look awesome.
I think I’m going to retire the term ‘army of inkers’ when talking about Green Lantern. I just have to accept that the book needs four of them.
Total laugh worthy moment when you see Sinestro near the end.
Does anybody else want Hal to get a real ring already? This bootleg one is getting old.
