Well, looks like Hal will finally get some serious panel time in Green Lantern.

All it took was for Baz to be in the same place as him.

Anyone know what the reading order is? The books used to be staggered, but now 3 Lantern titles are coming out on the same day.

They seem to be stating which part of the story it is on the cover. This issue is part five.

Looks. Awesome.

The art is superb, and the zombies look awesome! Hoever, to me it just looks like a opy of the black lanterns or just normal zombies.

Well considering that the Black Lanterns were created by Black Hand and he gave out all the rings to create and/or turn people into Black Lanterns don't you think it would make sense that since they are trapped in Black Hands ring that the beings in it are Black Lanterns??

I can't believe it's actually coming out the week it's supposed to. The art looks wonderful in the Dead Zone. Can't wait for it, especially with Hal narrating.

I really hope (though I kind of doubt it) that John puts in a good showing vs. Volthoom. The poor guy really needs a boost.

Read the issue earlier today and it had me gripped. However, how Baz dealt with Sinn made me grin.

Great art, but the plot fell apart. Lots of confusing and contradictory elements, and I doubt they were deliberate.

But man...that Dead Zone art was fantastic!

If John becomes a Red Lantern, I will almost certainly drop Red Lanterns. I'm not thrilled about the title already, but doing that to John will be the last straw, unless somebody manages to pull off a miracle and convince me that such a move makes sense for the character, rather than just tossing an Earth GL into the title to generate interest.

Sinestro getting out didn't surprise me because of the WTF cover of New Guardians. Be interesting to see how Sinestro/Baz and the rest get out of the Tomb.

Yeah, loved that artsy stuff. I wouldn't want it all the time but for the setting and as a break from Mahnke, it was great.

Also liked that bit with B'dg staring at the black ring. Sinestro's darker side showing is good.

The story literally only inched forward. Sinestro escaped the black ring, and Hal ponders suicide in a place where it was just made plain to him that he can't die. That was it. The good news was, we actually saw Hal for more than a page, and the art for his segment of the story was great. The other segment? Not so much.

2 stars, just for not getting us anywhere.
