I will admit that I am a relatively new fan of the Green Lantern series. That being said, I found this particular comic a compelling read. Sinestro is the real star of this story for a change, not Hal Jordan. In many ways, Sinestro is similar to another of my favorite anti-heros, the one and only God of mischief, Loki. Despite lacking altruism and compassion, Sinestro at least attempts to use his power and his tremendous gifts to bring order to the Universe. The main problem with Sinestro is that in his case possessing near-absolute power has nearly corrupted him absolutely. As we have seen, best intentions often have disastrous results when you fail to take into consideration the will of the majority, or the opinions of others. Sinestro has failed time and time again, but I believe no being is beyond redemption, no matter how far they have fallen. I think many fans of Green Lantern will soon (if not already) be fans of Sinestro if he is portrayed as having occasional pangs of doubt...
I loved Hal Jordan and Green Lantern as a kid and I wondered why he was an arrogant prick in as a member of the Justice League reboot. Well, this book did nothing to explain that. It started up the reboot with Hal losing his standing as Green Lantern and Sinestro gaining it. There were lots of references to a major story arc causing this turn of events with quite a bit in the story around the Guardians but nothing was really explained. It felt like the story started up in the middle; there was no reboot and no back story. I would have to back and find a proper starting point to understand why all this is what it is.
Part of what confused me more was that the JLA Green Lantern was Hal, not Sinestro …. So I’m still missing something.
Going forward from that confusing point, Sinestro as a Green Lantern was interesting. I always liked him as a villain and this story arc fighting the Yellow Lantern Corps was pretty good. Hal without his ring was...
Green Lantern Vol 1: Sinestro is an entire new direction for the Green Lantern Series. Not only has it slowed down for this particular volume, as Hal's not progressively saving the entire universe regularly in every issue as with the Blackest Night and Brightest Day story lines, but it has begun to sow the events that are going to begin major character growth. Finding out how Hal is without the Green Ring is surprising, as Hal is always portrayed as a strong headed individual with little to no cares in the world aside from his love life and even on that front he is a little dense. But moving him into a moment of great need in the real world is entertaining as are his interactions with Carol Ferris. The wrench in this particular direction is the reintroduction of Sinestro as a very reluctant Green Lantern once again. Not only has Sinestro become a green Lantern again, but his motives are being brought to the forefront as his characterization in John's eyes is effortlessly expanding. We...
