The battle between the Blue Lanterns and the Blue Beetles comes to it’s conclusion… and the Blue Lanterns lost! I wasn’t expecting that at all, I thought that Kyle would show up, power up all the BLs, and things would be wrapped up, and while that first thing did happen… it didn’t work out, the Blues had to retreat, to give up hope. It will be interesting to see what happens with that order now, and it’s very cool to see the normally very zen Saint Walker get angry. His vengeance against Larfleeze will be something. I hope he kills the annoying orange shit. It was good to have the rest of the ‘team’ involved too, especially Arkillo who was almost as metal as the Deconsecrator here. It looks like he’s going to have problems with his ring, which should a cool subplot. Overall, this was a cool arc, not only did it shake things up for the Blue Lantern Corps, but the use of the Reach really amped up my anticipation for what’s going to happen when they finally show up in Blue Beetle. It was clever of Bedard to link his two titles like that.
