The beginning of this issue focuses on Hal Jordan back on Earth, without his GL ring or powers, still trying to fight evil in his own way, and attempting to rekindle his romance with Carol Ferris. She must have a particular blind spot in this area, since the two of them never seem to work as a romantic pair. Meanwhile, Sinestro is on the planet Ogoro tracking down one of his former foes, a man now fallen on hard times who doesn’t want to remember his past glory. As usual, Sinestro gets what he wants, even though it doesn’t make him happy. At the end he’s back on Earth to collect Hal Jordan again, even though Hal doesn’t want to join him. Sinestro: raining on everyone’s parade, including his own.
The art on this issue is by Mike Choi, a fill-in I assume, and while it’s not bad, Choi’s style is jarringly different from all the other GL art out there in recent years. His style has a bit of manga about it, with characters that seem quite young, rather short of stature and kind of soft. I had a hard time accepting them at first, but the story eventually carried me along with it. I’d still say this art is not up to the quality I’ve come to expect on this title. Probably just a case of an artist whose talents would be better used elsewhere.
