Poor Delivery for this Conclusion
Okay, I can honestly say I was not impressed with this issue. 'Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns' was wrapped up way too quickly. There was easily one more issue of story left to tell. I think the only saving grace was that part of the issue was told from Boodikka's perspective. 'Revolt' is clearly a tale trying to mix the action of the Green Lantern Corps with the philosophy of transhumanism. Don't get me wrong. The first issues of this story arc were great, but I expected more from the ending.
Storywise - The whole issue seemed to be rushed. The scenes involving Henshaw and Ganthet were clunky. Stel's need to be reassembled yet again is getting tiresome. I don't know if it's an in-joke or what but how many times does this make it now? Why doesn't this guy get some nanobots to rebuild himself? And Hannu being impressed by John's use of the ring? That was slightly off, but it was interesting.
But, as I said before, the portrayal of Boodikka was a nice touch. I wish her perspective had been used more and more in-depth. I mean, the woman was turned into a machine and then regained her sense of self and all she was relegated to was cheering on her teammates for the most part. If the writer knew he was going to focus on Boodikka for an issue, then it would have been nice to have been given an idea on what the character was going through. Boodikka has a sister in the Corps, too, so having Zale involved would have made the issue stand out.
One thing I was pretty disappointed in is that we didn't find out any further info on the entity thief. Why have this person involved when so little is known about him/her? Why did this person help Henshaw? Some inkling of forward motion involving this mystery character would have been nice. As far Henshaw is concerned, I think he'll be back in some form or another.
Other than the above, the story was good - but if you're going to involve a large number of characters, even a little bit of character development works wonders.
