Dynamite has some cool stuff with their pulp/ Gold Key guys. This looks really promisiing. I think Dynamite has some really underrated stuff. Turok and Magnus are solid.

As someone that really doesn't know much about DC or the lanterns I enjoyed this issue a lot I decided to pick it up after seeing how badass sinestro was in Forever Evil

Why would he desperate himself from Parallax that makes no sense to me

Its mostly about what the Parallax demands from its host, Hal Jordan, Kyle Rainer went insane, I think Sinestro whom covets power for his own purposes, wouldn't sacrifice his own sanity and dignity for anything.

That aside this issue was really cool, and it up surprised me, I thought it was going to be decent but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great start.

I really love this book. Haven't been disappointed yet and with the way it's going, I don't think I will be anytime soon!

Totally agree. I have been very happy and surprised the way the story is developing. I love the art too.

@i_like_swords: I will have to check that out, sounds like an interesting book. One question tho I have heard conflicting reports of Disney and the STar Wars EU. The new trilogy has been confirmed for taking place post Return of the Jedi, so it will effectivley wipe out some EU continuity like Truce at Bakurra, Dark Star, possibly Heir to the Empire series. I feel like anything pre Episode 4 is safe but half of the the EU takes place post Jedi. Like I said there is conflicting reports with some stating that the EU is now Disneys to decide what to do with and what to say is bs. Not liek it matters to me really because I just love good stories. But for example there past views state

We have what we call Canon, which is the screenplays, novelizations, and other works that are directly tied into continuity, and then there are a lot of marginal things, like the old Marvel Comics series, that we don't really try to work into the continuity when we're planning new projects. Even the LucasArts interactive games have a premise, a backstory with player characters that we're trying to tie into the overall continuity. It is sort of a godlike undertaking. We are creating this universe as we go along, but somebody has to keep his finger on everything that came before.

Lucasfilm's then-continuity editor[1] Allan Kausch,

and more recent news:

Word began trickling out over Twitter last week that Disney will be drastically redefining the state of the Star Wars lore, eliminating the bifurcated mainline/EU arrangement and in its place constructing a single official canon. All things that are part of the canon are "real," as far as Star Wars is concerned; all things not in the canon are "not real." This eliminates the quasi-real EU tier—going forward, things will either exist officially, or not at all.

Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who currently maintains the internal Lucasfilm database that tracks the different elements of the canon, will be one of the folks making this decision. He tweeted that "Star Wars Canon is now determined by the Lucasfilm Story Group," which he and fellow Lucasfilm employee Pablo Hidalgo are part of. When asked specifically whether the group's goal was to eliminate the mainline/EU canon arrangement and its tiers of official-ness, Chee responded with a definitive yes. "More so than ever," he said, "the canon field will serve us internally simply for classification rather than setting hierarchy."
