War of the Green Lanterns

Picked up my comics for the last couple of weeks at Comics Plus yesterday. Among other books, I got the first three parts of War of the Green Lanterns. I thought it was actually rather good. I was disillusioned after Blackest Night, where the GL titles felt almost like filler compared to the main BN title and minis, though GLC rocked throughout it. Now, all the GL titles are where the story is at, just like they were in the Sinestro Corps War, and I like it.

The story brings to a boil threads that had been going on in the titles, culminating with the mad Oan Krona capturing all of the entities of the various Corps and putting them under his control, threatening not only the GLC, but the entire universe with his plan, which I haven't quite figured out yet. The way it's shaping up though, it's going to be the four human lanterns against the odds and possibly without rings as they're the only ones free from Krona, currently. I'm actually hoping they bring in the Corpse, as Hal and Guy are meeting on an ice planet much like the one Guy met the leader of the GLC black ops division so long ago with Ramey, the hot butterfly girl. Wishful thinking, maybe.

It's well worth checking out if you're a fan of some good cosmic storytelling and it seems like Johns is going back to telling a grand old epic that we can all enjoy. I'm very much looking forward to the next installment, though reading all three at once was a treat. I might have to wait and do that again.
