Glad to see reactions about Sinestro like this. I just hope they don't get over their anger toward him too quickly.

I too am concerned for the well-being of Ganthet. Those other Guardians totally had their rape faces on.

Boring issue again. Continue to dislike the aftermath but may give bedard anoher chance with a better artist and more control on new guardians.

I thought it was good. Rushed, though. Stewart really didn't face any reprucussions from killing Mogo. And Kyle never has any reason to accept what he did (which he kinda does in GLC). So that's disappointing.

I noticed last issue that Vath still had Isamot's legs .... they were just drawn like normal legs. Here I noticed he didn't even had that. Hm. Also noticed that centaur isn't an Alpha Lantern anymore. Background GLs: don't be sad when they die or get changed, it rarely stays that way.

Soranik's anger at Kyle in GLC make mnore sense witht his issue in place. Although it still seems to come out of nowhere, really. Honestly, it seems like it's the result of most of his breakups: the editors decided to tear them apart so that one or the other can get a book.

The ring sticking on Sinestro's finger despite the Guardian's will is fine for making him have a GL ring, but I still don't get how he's inducted into the Corps. Again, I wish the issue made that plain as well.

The issue is okay, but only that. It gets everyone where they need to be for DCNU. And I guess they need a couple of setup issues just for that. I'd hate for Atrocitus and Ganthet to happen off panel. We see Saint Walker have a nice chat with Ganthet, some strife in the Corps, and freaked out Guardians ... and we needed to see that, despite it being kind of dull. And we see Mogo buried, proving a bit of closure to the most dramatic scene of War.

Still, seeing Ganthet get blindsided nearly saved the issue. Didn't see that coming.

Quite enjoyed this. As others have said, it was nice to get some proper fallout, with Sinestro being a GL, and the other Lanterns' reactions to it. Kyle and Soranik's fallout did kind've come out of nowhere overall, but this issue certainly helped make the last issue of GLC a bit less jarring. I agree with Gauntlet though, ultimately most of Kyle's relationships seem doomed by editorial decree.

Best part for me was Kyle owning Vath. A really nice moment reminding the other Lanterns that this wasn't some rookie they were facing. I'm almost sorry we didn't get to see a bit more of that fight.

Kyle owning Vath? Man what a load of bullshit. How can a artist defeat a professional soldier in combat? Vath should have knocked his clock easily.

Probably because Vath's still a newbie at the whole Green Lantern bit, and Kyle's got far more experience in that regard. Conventional warfare tactics are meaningless when it comes to a weapon like a power ring.

It's not like they were in a fight. Vath stuck his nose in where it didn't belong and he got punched out the way. Pretty much a sucker punch.

They could have easily fixed the whole "sinestro has a ring"....chop off his freaking hand!!!! Bam! Its that simple. I should be a Guardian of the Universe. I did not have to deliberate, or try pulling it off. Nope the answer is a whole lot simpler. CUT OFF HIS DAMN HAND!

To be honest Sinestro being a Green Lantern again is fine, not a big deal. I hate not seeing Hal has a Green Lantern. For a character Geoff Johns loves....he sure likes to spit on him.

Uhm a hans is not required to use a GL ring. Bzz'd has no hands, Mogo had no hands. and Sinestro does have another hand it could easily go to.

But once the hand is severed from the body the ring will try to find a replacement or go to the other hand. At that point the ring can be caught and contained.....still resulting in a Sinestro free Green Lantern Corps.

I'd still give Kyle the edge on that one. He's been trained by Batman, and briefly held his own against Sinestro in a fistfight. Since Kyle was on the frontlines of the Rann/Thanagar war, he also knows how Rannian soldiers fight, and likely knows how to exploit their weaknesses.

Kyle may have started out as an artist, but he's a verteran GL now.

If it makes you feel better, it seemed like they picked GLs rather arbitrarily. Where's Isamot? He woulda wanted in.

It's not arbitrary at all.... it just has nothing to do with combat experience or training because the GLC ISN'T a military organization (or hadn't been before Johns started writing it).

The criteria to be selected had been "Fearless and honest".
