    I liked this ish over all. It actually forms a nice counterpart to GL#1. There, Hal who has a secret identity finds his life a mess without being a GL. Here, Guy envies Hal's anonymity and the two public GLs face their own problems.

    Eh, I liked having at least one non-supermodel-sized GL lady.

    And at least they admitted it was a wiki!

    I'm a horror fan and even I thought this was a bit OTT for the book. You could see the severed bone of the lady's finger!

      Can't really call them rookie lanterns. They were sporting their badges, and apparently had captured several criminals. We'd have to assume they were skilled, but not too up-to-date on fighting invisible opponents...shoulda took Stel's infared applications 101

        With the ratio of losses the Corps has taken, Iīm surprised itīs still functioning as a major force. Taking into accounts that lost a lot of trained officers in at least three major crisis and the time that would take to train new GLs to a point where they are useful, the Corps should have been crippled by now, especially if itīs only 7200. Modern armed forces would be crippled if they had these kind of losses.

        Comic writers have no sense of scale.

          Ok, what i want to know is when are these Guys(Guy and John) gonna get laid? These guys put their life on the line time and time again, you would think the would somethig to live for. Give them some girlfriends already! That said, i think issue one was off to a solid start. Great art and a terriffic set up of the ememy to come.
          There can be only me!

            That would be true if they had to fight another war but if it's just a matter of going back to the usual sector patrols then it would only mean that there's a bunch of sectors waiting to be filled. It wouldn't stop the functioning lanterns from patrolling their sectors. As long as the rings work, they should be okay.

              I forgot to mention my favorite part, which was when Salaak asks why Guy and John aren't in Earth's sector to protect it and all.

                Yeah, and was it Guy who brilliantly says Hal would get it?

                  Like John with Fatality.

                    Didn't care to see whats inside a GL. But I did like the issue. Probably the best comic of all the nuDC I have read

                        I thought that this issue was a good first start. I agree with other post that too many Lanterns die though

                          Too many lanterns die in nearly every issue.

                            That's the risk they take when they accept the responsibility of the ring. :P

                              Yeah, but they're dropping like flies.

                              They used to have automatic protection against this kind of stuff.

                                They're both cannon fodder and canon fodder. Get it?
