While over in the main GREEN LANTERN title the off-putting blood-spewing Rage of the Red Lanterns storyline is finally finished, here in the GLC we get much more of the kind of storytelling I like: character development, relationships explored, tension building. Sure, there’s action, too, focusing on Mongul trying to take over the Sinestro Corps, but it’s just one of several interesting story threads in the build-up to the next big GL story, Blackest Night. And, while I don’t know if we need another big GL crossover so soon, I have to admit the prelude chapters at the ends of these issues are intriguing.
The illicit romance between GL Corps members Kyle Rayner and Soranik Natu is, frankly, more interesting to me. And will probably be ignored when the crossover hits. But I like the way it’s going in these two issues. The storyline following Daxamite Sodam Yat and his mother is also quite well done.
Aas I said, Blackest Night is looming, and if you want a good intro to it, plus details and members in the rainbow of different-color Corps, this giveaway is ideal, if you can find it. I think I’ll keep it handy. And all these books are recommended.
