It's not worth the headache trying to sort out all that Krona/Crisis/Reboot history business :lol:

Let's hope they explain it this issue.

Volthoom? That's a name I haven't heard in years.

To me Volthoom is the entity inside Power Ring's ring (the GL equivalent in the Crime Syndicate). Should I be thinking of anyone else?

Pretty much. It would be interesting to see how Johns explains this one.

We'll probably have to wait until 2015 until that happens. (30th Anniversary of Crisis)

I'm confused by this solicit. Aren't we still on Rise of Third Army story? Or did it conclude in another comic?

it didn't end, wasn't even resolved. it folded directly into this where the first lantern has the focus now. i was extremely annoyed about that.

Why/How did the Guardians shrink to midgets when they were once 6'0 tall?

So the Third Army was wiped out in two panels and forgotten =/

When I realised the point of Volthoom is to rewrite reality on an epic scale only one thing came to mind: Johns is readying him as a massive retcon machine to Fear Bug away the Guardians own indiscretions.

I'm getting shades of SBP punches just reading this.

I can see Volthoom being used to solve a lot of stuff.

I was wondering that too especially since even pre-Nu52 Krona was usually depicted as being somewhat taller. I did some searches. Nothing definite but guessing maybe after they left Maltus and settled on Oa as "Guardians" something happened to them :smt017

Yeah, I agree. Hopefully they're trying to tighten things up a bit and clear up some contradictions.
