I Did Not Expect That--Green Lantern #67
I'm going to spoil everything, so don't read this review if you want to be free of that--although DC's solicitations for the Green Lantern books in October has kind of ruined things too.
At the end of this book Hal Jordan stands de-powered back on earth, only able to say, "This isn't how it's supposed to end." Well, I'll give writer Geoff Johns credit and say that it wasn't how I expected things to end. The Green Lanterns all fight that crazy-guy named Krona, the Guardians are freed of the emotional-spectrums, etc. but something interesting happens. Sinestro gets back a Green Lantern ring when he shows himself worthy, and the Guardians find themselves so upset and scared of Hal Jordan when he kills Krona they strip him of his ring and get rid of him unceremoniously. Then we are told things will continue in Green Lantern #1 in September with our new star...Sinestro of all people. Well, that's somewhat unexpected.
4 out of 5 stars.
