Body

What some may perceive as an issue-wide, Galactus-like feeding frenzy by the First Lantern in Green Lantern #19 is instead the thinly-veiled penultimate resolution of the complex life voyage of Thal Sinestro.

Oh, Hal Jordan and the world of woes he carries with him among the dearly departed in the Dead Zone are also touched upon with a rather unexciting and predictable climax, but Sinestro and his world are center-stage this time around, and writer Geoff Johns leaves no stones unturned.

If there is one thing that Sinestro loves above all -- even the women in his life -- it is his home world of Korugar. That planet and the variety of emotions it brings forth are the backdrop for this morality play of the anti-villain's life that end in Korugar going blooey like Krypton.

The Dead Zone suddenly becomes awfully full of crimson faces, cueing Hal into his own decision.

Meanwhile, without plan or purpose, the lone Korugar survivor in our universe comes across ... an old friend!

I am not sure I am eased with the solicited price tag for GL #20, but I can bet after this month's fare I will be plopping the bucks down in May for the great Johns finale.

See you there!
