Green Lantern – The Sinestro Corps War review by Raphael Borg

The Green Lantern is my absolute favorite character, tied with the Flash, and the credit for both being on top comes to the same author, Geoff Johns.

Johns has a way of reaching into any character whatsoever and bringing out what makes them work to the forefront, rebuilding their world the ground up in a way that passes for it having been there all along. Yes this means he is best when playing with “other people’s toys”, but Johns knows the toybox inside and out. In the case¬†of the entirety of Johns’ run on the Green Lantern, Johns does this on two fronts – the nature of fear and will, as well as the extent of law enforcement through a series of story conventions that make plenty of narrative sense in the world of Green Lantern. By the reimagining of the emotional spectrum, the introduction and reinvention of classic villains…it’s all here. The salient point here being the dynamic between Hal Jordan, the headlining character, and his greatest enemy and former mentor, Sinestro.

The artwork by ivan Reis, the most regular artist on the run, never misses a beat, quickly transforming the entire narrative into a space opera, with grandiose charges and somber moments that greatly enhance the narrative, and with good reason. There is no other way to describe this: it is a space opera.
