Holy Plot Twist Batman!?

Scans and Summary  here
The Good

Sinestro- This issue had Sinestro lose his yellow Ring and picked by a green ring to become a green lantern once more. While most found this shocking no doubt it was not unexpected after all he was the greatest green lantern before Hal Jordan and even after the Sinestro Corp War he was confident and pleased that by forming his own corps he had strengthened the green lantern corps by having the guardians write new lays in the book of OA. Sinestro has always had the best interest of the universe as a whole in mind and even strengthening his enemies if they can be used to protect the universe. He has always had the power to overcome fear and instill it. The most interesting thing for me is what will happen to the Sinestro Corp now that their leader is no longer a fellow fear wielder like themselves? Who will rise as the new leader of the yellow lanterns with Sinestro gone?

Art- Cool illustrations, nice pencil and ink work, and emotions are conveyed believably and hit all the right notes.

Hal-What can be said for Hal except all the problems I had with his character before Geoff Johns took over have been worked out in the years following his resurrection. Hal was completely Human and vulnerable in this issue. I’ve never felt any connection to Hal since I started reading him twenty years ago  ( except during Emerald Twilight by Ron Marz) and Geoff Johns had me holding on to his every word in this issue. If that’s not good writing I don’t know what is!

Cover-Both covers look good but the standard slightly better with the blinding green light all but consuming our earth based Green Lanterns.

Action- Fighting and action from start to finish sure to keep action junkies immensely entertained from beginning to end!

Kyle- After being of little use in the lead up to this conclusion Kyle is pivotal to the release of the heads of the various corps from the book of black by way of drawing in the book for the desired outcome. Awesome use of my favorite Lantern!

Holy plot twist Batman!?- Hal Jordan is kicked out of the Green Lantern Corp while Sinestro is welcomed back? Hell yeah!!!

 

The Bad

John Stewart- Background character in this issue

Impervious- its stated during the fight between the possessed guardians that they are invulnerable to the rigs of the green lanterns…..um Ganthet is a guardian and he was ganged up by the green lantern corps in this very storyline, so either someone forgot to say “the guardians are invulnerable now that they are possessed” or someone forgot that the fate of Ganthet was in question because of a plot point now rendered moot in this concluding issue.

Colors- Not quite up to the established standard of the Green Lantern book

 

The Ugly

Almost perfect 4.57/5

Great review. 
I as well was unsatisfied with Johns role in this book. 
Give him something to do....not 1,000 reasons to be depressed.

Considering how epic the plot twist was in this issue, you should probably Spoiler Tag the spoilers.

    In terms of any series leading into the reboot, this series ends just about as perfectly as a clean break could be expected to do.  With the Lnatern Corps members once again in control of their rings and themselves it is an all out assault on Krona, but as a Guardian of the Universe, taking him down is not as easy as it is initially assumed.  There was a really well scripted moment here with Kyle, but most of the story takes place along a fairly formulaic route for this series (which granted is ...
