The Rundown: Hal’s attempt to leave the planet causes havoc while Sinestro makes his presence known.
Hal finds himself coming back down to Earth in freefall. After getting control of this new and unknown ring he’s sporting, Hal tries to test it out to see what it can and cannot do. At the same time, an old enemy decides to pay some old allies a visit.
After Sinestro breaks into Ferris Air for unknown reasons, Carol calls in Hal for help. As the Green Lantern tries to determine what his old enemy wants, he discovers that Sinestro is closer than he thinks.
The Story: Adams has created an entertaining and consistently engaging story for Hal in this series. The story takes some interesting twists and I like seeing Hal dealing with the limitations of his ring while discovering more about his powers. I like how Sinestro is utilized in the issue and how brazen he is in his enacting his plan. I also like that there is a mystery to his plan that is being laid out in a way that has me invested in its outcome.
The Art: Xermanico’s art is fantastic. I love the style of the art as well as character designs. Xermanico does a brilliant job of focusing scenes on the characters while also generating environments that are stunning visually.
