really wasnt all that. now hal is no longer a red lantern, the blue ring fixed that. in order for the blue ring to work its nees to be around a green ring.

the blue lantern puts on a blue ring on to hal , fixing him. But now hes like 1/2 green lantern and 1/2 blue..

sinestro obviously escapes. and now hes in search for his daughter.

the art was great, the story.... was a quick read.

Does the blue ring simply counter the red ring, or does it allow it to be removed? Is Hal sporting 3 rings, or just 2?

it kinda "destroys" the red.. and can cleanse the person who is wearing it. Kinda like antibiotics.

laria might have been actually saved, if she wasnt fatally killed by sinestro.



2 rings blue and green

Long time lurker, first time poster...

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that thought they flew through that issue. I seriously read the whole thing during stops at red lights between the comic shop and my apartment (~2 miles). What they did do in the comic seemed like it could have been done in a lot less panels and we could have had more story. Plus it was really predictable. Not much bang for your buck. Here's hoping the Orange arc has a bit more substance.

I did think the ramifications coming out of a mixed corps Hal could be neat, though. Anxious to see what the Guardians have to say about that. The fact that the blues are impotent without the greens to an extent makes it seem inevitable we'll have a situation where they can't come into contact with each other, too. Pretty obvious thing for the Guardians to do as a plot device.

Question -- what happened to Atrocitus and his crew? Are they left in the dust or taken into custody?

After what happened in the last issue, Sinestro's lucky to even be alive in some non crippled/vegetative state.
