I haven't read too much of Russell's stuff, but this was pretty good. This is the only Year of the Villain material I planned on getting, don't care for the rest of it. I have never read a single issue with the ultraviolet stuff either, but that didn't really come into play here.

It was a neat sci fi story though, I liked it.

I've read every book written by Mark Russell except for that Judge Dredd miniseries, and they're always smart as hell. The only one I'd consider weak is the Porky Pig/Lex Luthor crossover, which was a bit too predictable and could have benefitted from a side plot and more pages.
Easily my favorite writer right now.

On the surface this feels like... remember when Grant Morrison's Final Crisis was coming out? All the tie-ins?

Yes, and it gave a more comprehensive guide to the Ultraviolet spectrum than the JLA explanation, IMHO.

I still hate the UV addition, however. "Evil Green Lantern Batman" was bad enough with the "dark side of the 52". I'm all for hybrid Lanterns, but not more spectrums.

I gave it a read. It was okay. I have no Idea how Sinestro became a ultra violet lantern,so that was weird,But not a bad story.
