"Meanwhile."
 
If I were the new scribe of Green Lantern Corps, that is the title I would have chosen for this creative debut as almost every page or  vignette in this book could have conceivably been a page or vignette in the main Green Lantern book.
 
But this is not a bad thing.
 
Instead, it means these books are interlocked in a such a way and it is to both Robert Venditti and Van Jensen's credit that this book is as fresh and exciting as Hal's issue #21 was. Very exciting!
 
The internet rumors of Lantern John Stewart's reported death were dealt with very wryly by the writers in the first few pages of the book.
 
We also see a great team-up between John and Fatally but where that relationship is going is still anybody's guess.
 
I am glad the writers gave us a scene in which the resignation of Salaak was touched upon, as well as the feelings of some Lanterns towards his closeness to the evil Guardians. Good stuff.
 
And as Larfleeze in monstrous might attacks Oa, the rings are released end some very interesting recruits that had already been introduced respond. (I am sure Hal would have liked to see some of these recruits rather than the Pre-K class he got.)
 
And in the folds of the plot, a new threat arises from the shadows. We know Venditti and Jensen will handle it well.
 
Meanwhile ...
