My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting twist to this ongoing story. I can’t really offer anything on the writing or artwork as that continues at the same level as I have grown accustomed to seeing from this group. Top notch all the way around.

Review: Green Lantern: Tales of the Sinestro Corps

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Written well enough, as I tend to expect from Geoff Johns, but it just a collection of stories of different characters rather than a truly cohesive story. It didn’t really capture me, and was quickly read and set aside.

On the whole I have not been a fan of the Blackest Night storyline, either the build-up to it or the story itself when it finally rolled out. Strangely enough this volume is one of the few of that period that actually works well for me. As I have come to expect, Geoff Johns handles the writing deftly and with great skill, so no complaints there. On the whole it is a good volume and worth reading.

Review: Green Lantern, Vol. 1: Sinestro

You know, as a character I really hate Sinestro, but I love this story. Geoff Johns at his craft again, and he puts on a spectacular show. Sinestro is one of those characters that you love to hate, and as such he has a marvelously complex back story with all kinds of fun twisty places to entangle a plot. The very thought of Hal Jordan trying to give up the Green Lantern mantel and trying to live without being a hero is as strange as Sinestro trying to be a hero again. Except…nothing is quite as simple as that, and that is where Geoff really shows his skills. As much as I dislike Sinestro I am eagerly awaiting more in this line.
