Everyone knows by now that the Sinestro corps means business. I’m still having nightmares relating to the introduction and arc concerning Yellow Lantern Kryb. While still very much ruthless, they are picking up the pieces that the last few arcs have sort of chipped off of Sinestro and Co. And with now having to collect and rescue surviving Korugarian’s (who SURPRISE want little to do with Sinestro, actually that’s putting it mildly; they hate Sinestro) and answer to the outside force of The Pale Bishop and their inquisition, we are strangely enough now hitching a ride in a sort of grey anti-villian territory. Not that Sinestro has been there on and off for a while now; but it is certainly steering in that direction here with the corps.
I actually really liked the pacing here; this issue is not very action heavy; consisting of mostly confrontations and conversations; particularly a big long one between Sinestro and Green Lantern Soranik, Sinestro’s long lost daughter who is sort of but not really but pretty much prisoner or designated liaison. While it’s sort of groan inducing that the green lantern that is accompanying them is his daughter because “family must stick together or you owe them” sort of nonsense but this does indeed make for some interesting writing; their relationship is complicated and that shows very nicely without bowing to most conventions to make it so.
