By their rings betrayed! Who – or what – has the might to tear power rings from each of the seven Lantern Corps, murdering their former bearers in the process? And why have the rings all chosen Kyle Rayner as their new master? As members of each Corps target Kyle for death, we learn more about the shocking fate of Ganthet!
I gotta say, I'm amped for Sinestro's return as a GL. Frankly, I'm thrilled by the absence of Hal "Personality of Cardboard" Jordan in general (nothing seems to have him except Justice League). Sinestro, though, is a favorite character of mine, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where they take him. I understand that he'll probably be back slinging a yellow ring before too long, but I'm going to enjoy this while I can.
As for the New Guardians, I don't think there are any major surprises there. Kyle needs a haircut. The Star Sapphire costume, if that is Carrol Ferris, has been changed. If it isn't Carrol, I don't know who it is.
I've been away from buying monthly issues for a couple of years now. This is enough to lure me back in. I have to make some decisions about what to pick up and what I'll just wait for the collected editions on, but GL is definitely a buy now.
