And Then I Read: HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #2

I am WAY, WAY behind on this title, but I needed some time away from the Corps, and I’ve had it. I now find myself enjoying once more reading about Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, and their brethren, as well as the main opposition here, Sinestro and his own Corps, including his daughter Soranik, formerly a Green Lantern. The GL Corps has been away, and returned greatly diminished, about 400 strong instead of many thousands. Their mobile base, the GL planet Mogu, is damaged and systems are being repaired. Hal can’t even tell exactly where in the universe they are, and sends Guy to find out. Meanwhile, Hal has run into a few of the Sinestro Corps, who are attempting to take over the policing of the universe in the place of the GL Corps, ruling it by fear rather than justice. Sinestro is in charge, and Soranik is beside him, though feeling used by her father to get him back into power. It’s a good opening to bring everyone back, nicely written by Robert Venditti, art by Rafa Sandoval and Jordi Tarragona. I’m looking forward to more.
