Review: ‘Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps’ #1: Sinestro Rises!

“SINESTRO’S LAW” Chapter One
With no backup and only his ring and battery to keep him alive, Hal Jordan streaks toward battle with the Sinestro Corps, while his greatest foe prepares to wipe the last Green Lantern of them all out of existence!


Just as it seems like there was a bright side to things and Sinestro was about to kick the bucket, he finds a way turn things around. He restores his power and a new order rises in the form of his yellow ring wielding Sinestro Corps. It’s insane how backed into the corner the good guys are with this one.

Writer Robert Venditti has helped to craft a perfect story for new and old fans of Green Lantern. The entire universe seems to have it out for them, and no one knows how they are going to turn it around. This makes the series even more of an intense read and helps it be one of the best series so far to come from the DC Rebirth event.



This book’s art is brought together thanks to the team of Rafa Sandaval, Jordi Tarragona, and Tomeu Morey, and thanks to their efforts they have created a fantastic issue. The most notable pages of this glorious comic are when they show Sinestro back to full power and addressing the crowd. He appears like a tyrant commanding his army, and it helps to send chills down the spines of all who read it.


With multiple comics featuring Green Lanterns being published by DC it’s important for each to have a specific focus. This issue launches by showing how its main attention will be on the cosmic side of the universe, and showing how the Hal and his friends have a lot of work ahead of them. They will have to get their home back and become the rightful peacekeepers of the universe once more. It sounds like a fantastic journey and fans are going to love it.
