Great idea, DC! Let's release the epilogues before the story even ends!

^Wow. Really?! I'll feel compelled to read it too, since it will be out there.

I'll buy it if it does come in, but I won't read it.

Crassness aside, it's about time for John Stewart and Fatality. But is their new relationship doomed in the standard repertoire of GL writing?

Better with someone on Mogo instead of with Mogo.

It does spoil a little bit of what will happen at the end. The rest of it I'd say ties up loose ends for John and Guy.

Is this a real spoiler?

God that's hillarious if 64 pages of an authors final issue is pure BS of nothing happening until the last page and Sinestro comes out the hero. Reminds me of that horrible tv show House, where the doctor would mock his employees and the patient the whole show trying to figure out an ailment and then in the last five minutes of the show figure it out in an anticlimatic way.

Hate to tell you, but yup that's spot on what we see in the book.

Kilowog and Guy rescue Salaak from his prison and then fill him in via ring constructs as to what happened. The only real significant one though is the glimpse of Sinestro as Parallax killing a Guardian.

Most of the rest of the issue deals with wrapping up the plot threads with Guy's family (save for the John Stewart/Fatality stuff seen in the preview).

It was an ok issue, but as a grand finale to Tomasi's run felt rushed. But then, I'm not really expecting much from his or Bedard's final issues with the way they've been dragged into the Johns finale.

So we see him killing a Guardian, not all the Guardians then? Plus, that doesn't mean he stops Volthoom either. Still can't believe they were stupid enough to release any of the aftermath books before the First Lantern conclusion comes out.

Anybody stop to consider Free Comic Book Day on Saturday? Why release such a big comic book, days before everybody can get it for free?

Uh, you do realize that the only Free comics on Free Comic Book Day are specific issues released for that purpose, right? You can't just go in and grab any comic you want for free.

I can't believe I missed FCBD this year, though. I forgot all about it. Good thing there wasn't really anything on the list of comics that I really wanted all that much.

Well, I suppose the suspense of issue 20 will be how Hal beat Volthoom. Sound like a pretty weak epilogue to me.

I suspect Hal versus Volthoom will just be part of it. What happens to Sinestro, the Guardians and how they're all stopped will be decent chunk. There's plenty that this issue doesn't give away, but it is frustrating that they're being released in the wrong order and opening up these spoilers of the finale.

I think my only real problem is its a single issue trying to provide an epilogue to not just Wrath of the First Lantern, but also the whole run since the new 52 started. It feels like it needed another issue at least. But it does deal with possibly the main aspect of Tomasi's run on the reboot, which is Guy and his family.

I'm not up with the schedules, but I hope this is the only issue hitting before GL #19, and we're not going to have New Guardians also spoiling the First Lantern finale.

I liked the ending with Xar.

Yes, releasing this first was dumb, but it doesn't tell you too too much about GL 20.

Thank God! I thought I was going crazy! I thought the Spoiler with the Guardians happened in a issue I missed. Pretty big fuck up on DC's part. for a minute I thought the whole issue was going to be a "Volthoom messing with Salaak" scenerio.

John and Fatality boinking on Mogo?

What happens on Mogo stays on Mogo I guess.
