Remember that whole arc with the Red Lanterns taking over 2814... and their base was Ysmault in 2814?

I thought this book was bad. Uninspired art, story, enemies, and plot. While disliking the entire direction, I thought the Rebirth issue was okay-ish, but this one is just not interesting at all. Also, if I'm correct about the Ysmault thing, and I'm pretty positive I am, Green Lantern has been littered with things that show that the writers and editors don't really care all that much about it. You must not care THAT much when you can look something up instantly with a google search and you STILL get it wrong, even when it's important in your story that people are actually paying you to do.

It seems this entire story hinges on Jessica and Simon's relationship, and neither of them are interesting, together or independently. I know the writer(s) could have done A LOT more with them already in 40 pages.
Yes, Ysmault is in 2814. The Manhunter massacre was in Sector 666.

Yes. I don't believe Ysmault was ever in 666. It seems some mix up the planet Ryut with the planet Ysmault.

The funny thing is, when I first heard people mention "Emerald Sight", I assumed it was Jessica that had it, and that would be the explanation for the stupid GL symbol plastered over her eye.

Every time I see her I think of a four leaf clover. I feel like she is trying to steal my Lucky Charms.

I don't think they're going Mary Sue since Simon is being a jerk to Jessica and they keep pointing out how much he doesn't know yet.

Yeah, technically a Mary Sue isn't just special in some way, but better at everything, and also usually liked by most everybody (in the story, if not in the audience).
