The secret of Guy's pact with Atrocitus is revealed just as his unit of Honor Lanterns are arrested by rookies mistaking them for the Sinestro Corps.
I'm always impressed by how Tomasi
infuses this outer space with such grand emotion and philosophical weight. In this issue, he puts Kilowog into the absolute worst
position he could ever be in - - both physically and emotionally - - and that's exactly what a dramatist is supposed to do. Pasarin
is just lush, too, and I appreciate his attention to even little details like the GLs' skin getting pressed against the "glass" of their construct cages.
While I love how it harkens back to the entrails-reading of ancient augury, Guy's prophetic vision feels like it's coming too close to the last
prophetic vision that foretold Blackest Night. If it's something that's addressed as being a curse that many GLs suffer at the claws of demons of the Five Inversions (Guy seeing it from Atrocitus just as Abin Sur saw it from Quill) then I can buy it but, as is, it feels a little like double-dipping.
The Verdict - 4/5
I'm quite excited about seeing how this current storyline with the emotional entities plays out. Thus, I appreciate how this arc complements what's going on in the main Green Lantern title without necessarily being dependent
on it. There was some skepticism about this book finding a unique identity as it went along and I can confidently say it has with this focus on the elite GLs - - it is, in fact, my favorite GL book.
