By the end, there's a resolution that leaves open questions regarding our villain. However, I suspect that like before its answers will be brought to the present day. There's also an awesome moment that links the past to the present.
There's a mix of action, emotion along the spectrum, and even more to look forward to. The ride with these rookies has been rewarding to say the least. My main quip is that the book suffers from rotating artists which can ruin the flow. However, Humphries puts enough story to keep you hanging on.
It feels better seeing Simon earn multiple rings for the sole chance at taking out the troublesome Volthoom. Concurrently, it's heartbreaking knowing that The First Lantern is more complex than someone who merely wants to take out the Guardians. I am making my way through the Geoff Johns run so I look forward to see what other treacherous actions lie ahead.
Jessica continues to shine even if she fails at keeping the other Lanterns alive. What a tragic showing for everyone, not just the Kryptonian. I thought that there was a neat moment in her showing the Emerald Sun to Volthoom. The exchange between felt a little therapeutic between the rookies and Volthoom.
I love the fact Simon has a ring that has been guarded for billions of years. Yes, you awesome fur guy you. And him still going on gives me life. One of Maltus’s better decisions.
I am glad to see that Lanterns are heading home. They have had quite the cosmic trip and they deserve time to have pancakes!
Curious to see where the next arc goes and how it transitions to Tim Seeley.
Overall I give this issue an 7.5/10!
