Book Review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Vol. 7: Darkstars Rising

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Vol. 7: Darkstars RisingHal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Vol. 7: Darkstars Rising by Robert Venditti

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A fitting conclusion to Robert Venditti's run on Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns Corps as the Darkstars return more powerful than ever and recruit a disgraced Lantern to lead them as they seek to dispense lethal justice throughout the Universe. After an initial attempt to defeat the Darkstars fails, John Stewart realizes the Green Lanterns can't do this alone, they'll need some help from their friends and a few enemies too.

While there are technically two stories in the book, they are linked, so this book is a 9-issue space epic that has plenty of call backs to prior arcs that come together in a coherent story that occasionally raises some questions of justice while never ceasing to be a fun heroic space opera. Overall, a fitting end to a fun run.
