There are some interesting storylines developing here, allowing me to overlook the involvement of Atrocitus in the opening sequence. Ganthet, one of those little blue Guardians, gives up his place of power to become a Green Lantern himself, an idea that seems fresh, and I particularly liked that he has to create a new power battery and ring for himself, not by mental magic alone, but physically:
Okay, maybe a bit melodramatic, but a cool idea. Meanwhile, the Alpha Lanterns have apparently gone rogue, taking over a planet and making more Alpha Lanterns in secret. John Stewart leads a team to investigate that situation. I like the mix of familiar and new characters being used in this book better than the mix before Blackest Night, and am enjoying it more than the main Green Lantern title for now. Recommended.
