The Rundown: Sinestro tries to instill fear all over the globe and Hal goes on a mission to stop him.
In order to jump start his powers, Sinestro takes over a group of dangerous Ferris drones and uses them to attack multiple cities all over the world. Hal suits up to try to track them down and destroy them before they cause more damage.
Hal’s mission will push his will and powers to the limit as he goes after multiple moving targets alone. A mission that will bring him face to face with Sinestro again who has discovered that fear might not be the only power he can access.
The Story: Adams does something incredibly interesting with this series and this issue as well. There is a great level of suspense throughout the issue and a sense of immediacy that kept me on the edge of my seat page after page. The action is fantastic and I love seeing Hal use his powers and skills in a way that makes me appreciate the character more. Everything culminates in a fantastic cliffhanger that makes me excited to see the next issue.
The Art: Xermanico delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. The visuals are stunning in their detail and perfectly capture the suspense, speed and action of the story.
