William Hand, the “Black Hand” behind much of the crossover trouble from last year is back to life of a sort, as he escapes from the prison planet of Nok, and returns to Earth. Crazed dead people are not too unusual in the current comics world, but Hand is certainly one of the most convincingly craziest. His first matter of business? Resurrect the dead bodies of his family for a quiet dinner get-together. Meanwhile, Sinestro and Hal Jordan are looking into Hand’s disappearance, and the Guardians of the Universe continue to monitor things, apparently quite happy to see their Green Lantern Corps falling apart. I continue to enjoy Geoff Johns’ writing on this title, particularly the uneasy team of Hal and Sinestro.
The art by Doug Mahnke and a quartet of inkers continues to be excellent. I can’t find a thing to say about it in even a slightly negative way, it’s quite pleasing in every aspect.
