The preview makes it sound terrible. And we're treated to a "cruelest portrayal of Superman" ever in #2?

Ugh. I'm going on vacation until 2020.

Well... more Empire of Tears isn't a bad thing. I guess.

Really depends what is done with them. I'm not sure I'm all that excited about them getting fleshed out, but if they are used simply as a nebulous, occult threat that can showcase some serious weirdness, that's fine. I just feel like trying to explain them too much diminishes them. If we know very little, then they don't HAVE to make much sense.

I like some of the dialogue like "bind them with superscience."

This is an alternate... present day, right? If so, does this jive with Red Lanterns #0? Wouldn't the Inversions all be dead, including Roixaeume, right? Killed by Atrocitus?

Or some kind of illusion/dream state? A coma induced to test Hal when he was undercover with them?
