It Felt Short--Green Lantern #63
The Prelude to the "War of the Green Lanterns" crossover, with the cover claiming an assault on Oa that doesn't actually occur this issue. Despite not delivering on its promise, this issue is still somewhat enjoyable if feeling incredibly light.
DC kept many of their comics at $2.99 by lowering the page-count, and I haven't really noticed until now. This issue just felt kind of short. Maybe it was the extended flashbacks or time spent with the growing cast talking amongst themselves, but the story didn't seem to really get going until towards the end right before stopping. There is an interesting adjustment to continuity Geoff Johns makes with the infamous Manhunter robots and the flashbacks help flesh out just who this Krona is for those of us who aren't well-versed in DC continuity
3 out of 5 stars.
