Writer Robert Venditti is bringing out the big DCU space villains. Up first is Starro the Conqueror, that starfish-shaped creature who takes over minds with his face-hugger children, as seen above. But the real threat is Brainiac, who has led the Corps into a trap and into one of his “bottles.” Meanwhile, Hal Jordan, presumed dead, has a fascinating encounter with the very first Green Lantern he ever met, and Sinestro’s daughter, Soranik, is trying to help the people of Xudar, where things are happening, with her group of Yellow Lanterns. Lots going on, all of it interesting, and both John Stewart and Guy Gardner have enjoyable moments. Nice art by Rafa Sandoval and Jordi Tarragona, too.
