The uneasy coalition of the Yellow and Green Lanterns falls apart here, something that was easy to predict. Not so easy was the anger and venom coming from Yellow Lantern leader Soranik. Not without reason, but it feels like a plot -driven anger rather than one that comes from the character as we’ve known her, who has always listened to reason. Now she’s all hate and anger, and is taking on the name Soranik Sinestro as she leads what’s left of her Sinestro Corps back to Korugar. This is also a big fail for John Stewart, the other architect of the coalition, and one thing that did surprise me was, he had a backup plan to minimize damage, one that is also a kind of betrayal. Unlike past issues, this one feels like an executive decision to return one part of the status quo. It’s well told, but feels like a letdown all the same.

Mildly recommended.
