the_cyan_lantern's Green Lantern #55 - The New Guardians, Chapter 3 review
Summary: As Lobo enters Earth, things don't get pretty for Hal, Carol, Sinestro, and Atrocitus who fight off the invading Lobo. Bonus: Dex- Starr's origin is revealed.
The Good: Lately with a GL book we've been getting story (even thought we just finished a whole year reading about fighting dead people). And honestly we should be seeing that with now Brightest Day. However this book felt it was purely dedicated to fighting the nasty, and alive, Lobo. That's something I don't mind.
The Bad: When I picked this issue up and read the previous issue, I wondered why Lobo of all people would be related to Brightest Day I was just left confused. However, we were previously informed that Atrocitus would be part of 6 issue mini series called "Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors". This whole issue felt like it was trying to sell us a filler for this series and not the book I wanted.
Vote: 3.5 out of 5 The only reason it hit .5 was because of Dex- Starr's story. Who doesn't love that cat

There's also a "Tale of the Red Lantern Corps" extra w...9 out of 9 found this review helpful.
