Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #23 Review

70

I feel as though Green Lantern Corps leader John Stewart is pages away from making a mistake – or two – and inadvertently destroying the bond that he’s worked so incredibly hard to build.

Okay, so maybe our fearless leader isn’t going to destroy the relationship that he’s built with the Sinestro Corps, but it appears as though he is fixating on making sure that his decision appears to be a wise one more so than he should be. I want to believe that he will keep the good of the GLC in mind when making future decisions in regards to the issue at the center of this issue, but from the looks of it, that may not happen.

More interesting, though I’ll admit not as important, is the turmoil that Kyle Rayner is causing for Soranik. He has made a mistake, and come next issue, I believe, he’s going to have to deal with it, and when he does, sparks are going to fly.

Writer Robert Venditti is doing a great job stringing readers along and keeping this series of interesting to new and longtime fans alike. With every page, I feel as though the stakes are growing higher and higher, and that is a great thing. I do feel as though he’s delaying the inevitable some, but at least he’s keeping it entertaining.
