“I wish Geoff Johns would stop using the Star Wars prequels as reference material for his vision on this title. The whole multi-colored set of rings idea is about as bad as midi-chlorians. The only good thing to come out of this is the introudction of some fun and interesting lanterns, but I argue they could have been introduced as green, not orange, yellow, or red.
Larfleeze and his greed serves as good comic relief in this installment, instead of just being annoying. Atrocitus shows he can be cunning, and not just a bull charging towards his goal, and some attempt is made at making Sinestro DC comics's best anit-hero (currently in a race with Luthor for the title).
Oh yes. Finally Johns tries to give Carol Ferris a real personality.
The story? Really who cares? The white lantern issue feels like a macguffin.
A big plus is the inclusion from one of the floppies of how the Red Lantern Dex-Starr came to be. Yeah, there is a woman in refrigerator moment there, but I like this short a lot regardless because it gives the character a little depth and motivation. And, it tugged at my heart a little.”
