Green Lantern: Sinestro (New 52, vol. 1)

Amazon.com: Green Lantern, Vol. 1: Sinestro (The New 52) (9781401234553):  Johns, Geoff, Mahnke, Doug: Books

Hell seems to have frozen over, Hal Jordan must have thought after having his ring rebuked by the Guardians and given to a former friend and legend, Sinestro. Abandoned by his Corps of yellow lanterns, Sinestro is reinstated as to his old position, tasked with taking down his treacherous old crew. Facing a threat greater than he can handle, Sinestro devises a plan to use Jordan, forging him a temporary ring that only he could use. Jordan, struggling to adjust to civilian life, finds it irresistible but the question can the pair fix some of the old tyrant’s mistakes?

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this story. Geoff Johns, legend of Dc, gives us another damn good Lantern tale. The artwork is great and the story runs smooth. Seeing Sinestro slowly gain a little humanity while still being a badass and a renegade was really cool; I always enjoyed Sinestro’s conflict of duty and ideology and this story brings a lot of that. I will say, despite the first volume of the 52 for Lantern, if you aren’t familiar with certain events, the book may be a little confusing but definitely still worth a read. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
