That's a good cover ruined by that uneeded word bubble.

^That is a rather wasted one. It's one thing if it conveys info that will surprise you and get you to turn the page, but "Zod, no"?

I never really liked Rafa Sandoval's art. I know a lot of people do, but he just never really clicked with me. He's just kinda' okay-ish to me, and I never really looked forward to seeing his stuff. He's not a bad artist, and he's done some really cool figure work of the character's flying sometimes, but I just never really liked his style, I guess. That, and he draws some of the characters REALLY weird. Examples: Kyle Rayner's mullet-ish hairstyle, Soranik Natu's weird hair, Arisia's weird hair, when she shows up, but I actually recall seeing a picture of her by him really recently that wasn't so bad.

I feel similarly about Doug Mahnke. An artist a lot of people hold in really high regard, but I only think he's kinda' all right, I never look forward to his artwork, and he draws some characters weird to my eye.

I don't know that this issue needed to be "extra-sized." John's plan pretty much revealed itself already and the only thing left was for Hal to Hal it up and put it to rest. The other stuff seemed superfluous.

I do wish that with that extra room there was more shown about the GLC persuading the populace that there is a better way, rather than just be able to beat the Darkstars without killing them. That's seemed to be really important.

Sweet way to end it though - I was very glad to see it, but it's kinda disappointing that this most likely won't lead to anything.

So is this the last that we're going to see of Somar-Le?
