THIS is why I love the corners of the DCU that Geoff Johns clearly has a controlling interest in. Despite the fact that he himself didn't write these issues, he's worked with Dave Gibbons to help lay the groundwork for the Sinestro Corps War and even Blackest Night, WAY back before (and during) Infinite Crisis! And the best part is, they did it by using an old Alan Moore GL story! It's also a credit to Gibbons and his company of artists (himself included) that the new rebuilt Corps feels genuine ...more

The first story in this book is about Guy and a new Lantern meeting a member of a secret black ops faction of the Corps, and the three of them infiltrating the Dominators. There were some pretty confusing parts. I'm not really sure what happened to R'amey Holl near the end of it. But maybe I just missed something. The best thing about this arc, though, was the introduction of R'amey. She's adorable and has a really cool design.

The second part was about a yellow virus on Mogo. This arc was intere

I generally dislike DC comics, but the Green Lantern has always been the exception. What I really like about it is the scope of GL's universe, and how the power rings reflect the personality of the wearer. As opposed to the standard trope of either being born with power, like Marvel's mutants (X-Men) & gods (Thor) or DC's aliens (Superman), being granted them by powerful organizations like the government (Captain America) or the rich (Iron Man), or by accident (Spider-man), the GLverse mixes ...more

This is it! This is when Green Lantern Corps is a fun book to read!

Yes Kyle is missing, I think he's Ion now but I'm not sure so we once again get a Guy and others centric story, but this time around Guy's not bad and the rest of the cast, which I really like, get their time in the spotlight.

World: The art is good, it's Gleason mainly and in general I do enjoy his art quite a bit. It's really dirty (as in having a lot of debris and fluids and things flying everywhere) in a good way, he just love

The Dark Side of Green continues our introduction to some of the new members of the Crops as it hints more and more at the rapidly approaching Sinestro Corps War. As with previous issues, The Dark Side of Green is only one of the stories in this volume, accompanied by three other stories. This volume has multiple quick arc stories. We see new lantern R’amey Holl teaming up with Gardner to take on the Dominators in a three part story that is exciting, but confusing and really plays out too fast. ...more

Lo que lleva haciendo hasta acá Gibbons, sumado a lo que paralelamente escribe Geoff Johns en la serie principal, me parece sumamente entretenido.

No hay muchas dobles lecturas ni nada por el estilo. Simplemente diversión pura y dura, se comienzan a ver retazos de la inminente aparición del Sinestro Corps que poco a poco está enviando a algunos de sus miembros a hacer mella en los Linternas Verdes - específicamente en Mogo- y genera unas cuantas caídas en este bando.

Una sumamente buena continuaci

I thought the previous volume was pretty middling, but this one was quite good. The first three issues are guest-written, and are way more dark and disturbing than the rest of the series has been. They essentially follow a secret Green Lantern wetworks team: the Green Lantern Corpse (pun!) I really enjoyed this arc, even though it felt a little out of place. I wanted to follow this arc a little more, instead of getting back to the usual cast.

But the rest of the book is pretty good. Gibbons still

Great example of story planning across titles and writers. The second storyline is really setting up for the Sinestro Corps war AND is peppered with subtle references to Blackest Night years before it came out!

Truly consistent storytelling with great characters who have been granted power because they were judged worthy of it. The wonderful thing about the Corps is that you get true characters with compelling back-stories who you care about; not just fillers.

The first story-arc was the true "da

While at first the story enticed me, by the time I had reached the halfway point of the volume it was starting to feel like more of the same, repeated with different characters. Honestly, it wasn't long after that part that I became completely bored with the story and simply scanned the rest of the volume in the vain hope that it might change, only to be disappointed. After a disappointing time reading the first volume, and having the same reaction from the second volume, I find that I am less e ...more

More lead in to the Sinestro Corps War! The first part introduces the Green Lantern Black Ops division. This started as an entertaining Guy story, but by the end I thought it got a little too plot twisty for its own good. The next set of stories set up a subversive attack on the Corps resulting in several minor member deaths. I enjoyed parts of it, mostly Natu, but overall it was rather weak. This one is probably more like a 2.5 star.

While the general plot and storyline are pretty good the art by Patrick Gleason and Dave Gibbons takes some of the seriousness away from the book. The ultra-cartoony aspects of the art also make it hard to take in some of the scenes. I usually focus on the writing first but here its hard to avoid. Overall, just a decent read that could have been so much better.

Wasn't my favorite ,the threat felt big enough but didn't do mcuh with it in the end... did like this quote though!
Guy Gardner :Truth is, I ain't never been so proud of failing in my entire life. Killing someone. That's the easy way out. Making the scum of the universe face the music... That's more my style.

This was cool. Sometimes the Corps book is more entertaining than the main Lantern book. I like Guy Gardner and enjoyed his time working with the black ops gang. Mogo's story was fun and I'm excited to see these guys through the Sinestro Corps War!

My biggest problem with these comics are the villains. They just are too boring for me. But I have found out that I actually kinda like Guy Gardner so that's interesting.

Wish R'amey would have stuck around a bit longer is all. Other than that, amazing as always <3 The gore and darkness of this volume was amazing. I adored it.

Continuing my fascination with the Green Lantern Corps. The first half of this book is great, the second half, so-so. What is it with me and the GLC?

better writer, better arc.

i just wish they would've tied into the Sinestro Corps a little better. the regular GL series did a far better job at this.

This was one of the better Corp books I've read. Less focued on Guy this time around. Intersting story with Mogo. Pretty enjoyable as a whole.
