With a deadly mistake coming to light, the lines are drawn and tensions are on the rise. Will everything these two lantern corps have been working towards come to a crumbling halt?


***NON-SPOILERS and SUMMARY AT THE BOTTOM***



To Kill a Killer


When Tomar-Tu was faced with a moral dilemma, to let a killer live and possibly kill again, or to put an end to him forever…he chooses the latter. When discovered, Hal Jordan has to decide what to do with him. I mean he did take down a disgusting creature who killed kids for sport. Tomar decides to face his fate with dignity. But once he releases his ring, the deceased’s yellow ring will head out and let everyone know what has just occurred. But something odd happens, the yellow ring deactivates.



Trouble in Not So Paradise


A furious Soranik confronts Kyle about their dead son. Anger doesn’t even begin to describe Soranik’s feelings at this point. Kyle’s fear surgeries through Soranik’s body, so much so that she brands his chest with it. I’m going to go ahead and assume that love fest is over. Meanwhile, John announces the guilt of Tomar-Tu, causing waves of angered Yellow Lanterns to want their revenge on him. Fear and will may never stand side by side.



Sum it Up


An exciting and smart issue from start to finish. A lot of dialogue, but every word meaningful and thought provoking. Venditti will make any reader deeply invested into these groups of misfits and warriors. I can’t get enough of this book!


8.5/10
