In this strange and scary new DC Universe, where everything is slightly different, it’s good to have a book that’s not really changed. Everything in the Green Lantern world is pretty much the same as we left it, it’s even the same creative team. Perhaps it’s a missed opportunity to shake things up, but it worked well. Johns seemed revitalised by having Sinestro be a GL and by Hal Jordan being an average citizen. I was kind of iffy on this idea when it was introduced, but it’s working for me now, Johns knows it’s pretty dumb, and will only be temporary, but it will be fun while it lasts. This issue also did a good job in giving Hal some humility, he’s such an insufferable ass normally (see Justice League #1) that it’s good to see him suffer a bit and maybe become a little bit more likeable. And Sinestro was bad-ass, I know Johns’ man-crush on him is tiresome, but he can be cool at times, as long as you don’t forget he’s basically a big pink Hitler. This was probably the best issue of Green Lantern for a while, and it looks like the reboot has given the book a shot in the arm. Doug Mahnke’s art was of course great, he can do the cosmic space stuff and the Earth-bound stuff, and it all looks wonderful.
