Oh it’s so great to see Ethan Sciver draw Green Lantern. I still remember his art from Green Lantern: Rebirth, when they brought Hal Jordan back. Great stuff. And to see him draw Hal Jordan again, feels like home.

I have not read every Green Lantern story in the last few years, but apparantly Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps have disappeared for a while. In that time, the Sinestro Corps have taken over as the sole intergalactic police force in place of the missing Green Lantern Corps. At least until now. The Green Lantern Corps have returned, if not in a weakened form. Hal Jordan has returned even though he seems to be turning into pure willpower.  And Guy Gardner… is still Guy Gardner, the ultimate bad ass of the Green Lantern Corps. He is in the midst of being tortured and still, has plenty of energy to insult and crap on his torturer mid-torture. Too cool.

I’ll confess, this was just a nostalgic romp for me. The art, the familiar characters, and reminiscent plot of fighting against Sinestro, it was just a great ride back to old stories for me. To me, this story arc feels like another rebirth of the Green Lantern comic book series. It’s a return to form, and that makes me happy.

Score: 6/10
