Kyle and Soranik take on Star Sapphire Miri. It's all about love and who is Kyle's true love?
Out of this whole run of Green Lantern Corps, this is the FIRST time I've ever given an issue below 4 stars. I've loved this series top to bottom, well until now.
Kyle Rayner, without the mask, looks pretty awesome. Can we keep him without the mask?
Daniel HDR's pretty awesome on this book, mainly when there is tons of crazy construct craziness going on. He's probably the first artist to make me notice how insane construct battles can get. The best example of this is a full splash page where Kyle is being grabbed by the emotional tethers of the Star Sapphire Miri.
I feel like we're starting to see the effects of the new 52 start to take place with this throw-away issue. It's not a terrible issue, but I'd rather the book just disappear for the month than have this story. Sure, if you love Kyle, you're going to love the issue, but for me, it didn't really add anything to the Corps. Sora and Kyle may not be on speaking terms, but that's not something I personally care about in a Green Lantern book. It feels phoned in.
Green Lantern Corps #62 feels like a throw-away one-shot from the 90s. There's been so many great and epic things happening in the Green Lantern universe for the past 5 years, and this issue feels like a giant leap away from that. If you enjoy a love story between Kyle and Sora, as they fight a Star Sapphire, then this is the book for you. For some of us, it's going to feel like a big disappointment from such an amazing series. I do not recommend this issue, and it's extremely hard for me to say that.
