    1 thought on “Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War

    1. I tried to get through this drek for over a week, and I have to throw in the towel. What most consider to be Geoff Johns’s best Green Lantern book I found to be a boring, tedious, borderline unreadable mess full of Johns’s regular bullshit, like terrible characterization, uninspired and cliche-ridden story and heavy reliance on dumb, pointless spectacle. Geoff Johns is the Michael Bay of comics, and I can’t take it anymore — I will finish Doomsday Clock out of morbid curiosity, but I am [...]

    2. This epic Green Lantern crossover event is a huge space galactic actioner that sees Hal Jordan's ex-mentor and arch-nemesis Sinestro escape from imprisonment and form his own lantern corps armed with rings powered by the yellow light of fear, set on maintaining law and order in the galaxy by force. As usual for major superhero comics, it's pretty bloated and sometimes confusing, but it's still readable, blockbuster fun!

    3. This has to be one of the densest stories ever published in the DC line. So much happens on every page, I was a bit overwhelmed and had to rely on a Wiki to make sure I hadn't missed anything important. And yet, very clearly, this was just a stage setter the book is absolutely littered with references to the Blackest Night event that is on the horizon, past "Final Crisis". I think Final Crisis itself was seeded in this story as well, if the return of some infamous baddies from prior crises is an [...]

    4. Apparently this is the precursor to the Blackest Night event. The Sinestro Corps War is a massive undertaking. Sinestro, a former Green Lantern-once the greatest of them all- till Hal Jordan took that title, has formed his own Corps. His is yellow and based on beings who can instill great fear. He decides to go to war with the Green Lantern Corps. He recruits not only many yellow lanterns but some seriously powerful people- from Cyborg Superman and Superman-Prime to the Anti-Monitor and Parallax [...]

    5. This was a chunker! Getting through this graphic novel took some work, granted it was the complete story, which has broken down into separate volumes, but still I am not used to using a bookmark with a graphic novel. This was a great story, seeing how the Sinestro corps came to be and hinting at all the other different corps that were soon to follow. This was epic. unfortunately I had a hard time digesting it.There is a lot to process here. It doesn't help that I sometimes have a hard time follo [...]

    6. This is to date my favorite Green Lantern story ever. Sinestro forms an evil corps of his own to battle the Green Lantern Corps. While the green rings are powered by willpower, Sinestro's yellow rings are powered by fear. The art is great and the story is gritty. There are too many moments to name them all but some that stand out are when the guardians allow the Green Lanterns to use lethal force and when we find out the Sinestro Corps has such members as the the Cyborg Superman, Superboy Prime [...]

    7. I missed reading Green Lantern! This was amazing. Definitely the best part of this series so far. This was massive. So many things happening. So many characters involved. Hal, Kyle, Guy, John and innumerous non-earth Lanterns. Even the Anti-Monitor was in this. I had to take my time so I wouldn’t miss anything important because they were just throwing things at you all the time. But that was incredibly fun. I love the the whole concept behind the Green Lantern Corps. It's so interesting. The w [...]

    8. Primer cómic de Green Lantern que leo. Ahí, a lo bestia, ¿por qué no?He empezado por aquí gracias a Mss Black, que tenía dos y amablemente la he sugestionado para que me diera uno muahahaha. La verdad es que al principio me sentí algo abrumada por no conocer el personaje ni el mundo y verme inmersa de lleno en una historia de semejante envergadura. Mea culpa. Y no es que de esta forma sea una lectura fácil. El cómic de por si es denso, en el sentido en que tiene mucha información en ca [...]

    9. Let me state up front that if you are well versed in Green Lantern mythos and other happenings in the DC Universe around the time of The Sinestro Corps War then this will likely be much more to your liking. The story is suitably epic, with Sinestro creating his own corps of ring wielders (channeling yellow, the color of fear) to take final revenge on Hal Jordan and the rest of the Green Lanterns. The story builds well, is supported by (mostly) outstanding art, and has the requisite "big reveals" [...]

    10. Meh This was an okay read. So i think perhaps the reason why i gave this only a 3 stars is because it was over hyped, my one friend went on for years about how amazing this was, and now that i read it there was no way this book could match the over hype! So let me break it down, the story is that Sinestro has risen an army and wants to kill the green lantern corp that's about it The Positives i would say would be Ivan Reis artwork, and the story did have some great moments, some of the fight sce [...]

    11. This is the best Green Lantern story I have ever read. It's so epic in scale as full of twist and turns. I had no idea this was the main build up to Blackest Night event. It's straight up awesome. That's it. Sinestro has to be one of my favourite villains. I love the fact that he thinks he is doing the right thing. He thinks he's the hero and it makes him so much more interesting. The supporting cast for this book is also kick ass. Superboy-Prime, the Aniti-Monitor and Cyborg Superman are some o [...]

    12. This story is massive, galaxy spanning, and full of character moments and progression from the main cast as well as those around them. Most of the art is great, and as is always the case with Johns and Johns-related material, the dialog is possibly the highlight of the whole thing. That being said, Superman Prime is a terrible character, Natu's relationship with her world keeps jumping from one extreme to the next, and a couple issues within are kinda meh.

    13. This story is one kickass piece of comic literature!The Sinestro Corps War is the expertly woven foundation for the ever epic Blackest Night crossover miniseries, but it also stands on its own as a damn good comic read. Geoff Johns knows how to write a beautifully evolving story that spans over many issues and story arcs. (Which is both impressive and appreciated. ♡) This is one helluva space opera and in my opinion the BEST Green Lantern story behind Blackest Night.

    14. Is not a masterpiece like watchmen or Kingdom Come but is great history. With this started allí the arc "blackest night" & "brightest day"anks Geoff Johns.Si bien no es la maravilla absoluta como Watchmen o Kingdom Come, pero es el comienzo de toda una era con Geoff Johns, que por lejos es de las que más me gusta de Green Lantern.

    15. Ok Im going to say it. I think this might be the best graphic novel I have read of all time. And trust me I have read alot. when reading this book I found my jaw would literlly drop like 5 or 6 times. trust me guys its this good

    16. This is a definite enjoyment from a comic book that is very satisfying thoroughly. Its a big comic book that collects the whole event of tie-ins which is very good and comprehensive. All event comic books should really follow this standard.1 star = good visual /readabilityScored!This book have many good splash pages and albeit the Green Lantern Corps sections are a bit of a let down on visual quality, they are not bad when visualising many viceral fighting panels.1 star = good story /coherenceSc [...]

    17. Story:I have been collecting the trades of this series and have really enjoyed it and this is the Second high point. Geoff Johns opens with a great story in Green Lantern: Rebirth, following this the book is a slow build letting you know the characters and laying the laws and groundwork of the questions that Johns intends to answer. The Sinestro Corps War is the second high point of this series and is laid out like a true war story. I do not want to go into spoiler territory but I will say that [...]

    18. I am someone decently well versed in Green Lantern, I have not read the entire cannon and my knowledge of the continuity is fragmented, but I have read the original Hal Jordan comics, I have read the controversial issues where Kyle Rainer becomes the Green Lantern, I love the John Stewart story lines that go from Cosmic Odyssey to Mosaic, and I like Laughing at Guy's antics. I was however, still a bit lost when I started this title. I should probably have gone ahead and read the Rebirth books th [...]

    19. My 3-star review comes with an asteriskd this is it: I picked up a copy of "Sinestro Corps War" having only ever read "Green Lantern: Rebirth" and so my knowledge of the character and his folklore were, to put it mildly, lacking. That said, I thought the book was fine, but now I know how readers who did not care for "Avengers Forever" felt: "SCW" leaves me feeling like I'm missing something through my limited knowledge of the DC Universe as a whole/Hal Jordan in particular, but rather than this [...]

    20. The Sinestro Corps War is a turning point in Geoff Johns' Green Lantern series and is a must read for every Green Lantern fan (both new and old). After harnessing the yellow light of fear Sinestro creates his own lantern corps, their goal: Destroying the Green Lantern Corps while spreading fear across the universe. After an attack on Oa the earthborn Lanterns must travel to Qward to rescue Ion, it is on Qward that they will be confronted with the Sinestro Corps. They will need to face their bigg [...]

    21. Probably the best Green Lantern story to date with Blackest Night a close second.One of the biggest appeals is that you don't need to be a hardcore Green Lantern history buff to enjoy this story. The writer does a great job of explaining each scene and tells you what you need to know by using the characters inner dialogue or flash back scenes.The artwork is simply amazing and nearly every page has so much going on i needed to read this twice to catch everything.This story is not only about the y [...]

    22. I really enjoyed this chapter of the Green Lantern run by writers like Johns, Tomasi and Gibbons. They all contributed in excellent ways to a story that really captivated me and also helped me understand more of the modern day Green Lantern mythos. The story told a great tale about overcoming fear and realizing how to move on into the future without letting such fears take you over. That really stood out to me, and it was an excellent lead-up to Blackest Night. Geoff Johns was already my favorit [...]

    23. This is a great graphic novel capturing the insidious evil that is created by fear. The writers offer not just an exploration of the way fear disguises itself as righteousness but also the way it corrupts those who are given the responsibility to safeguard others. The artwork is excellent through most of the book and overall this is well imagined and well done. However, there are a couple of places where it seems a bit disjointed, but perhaps that is intentional to give the reader the same sense [...]

    24. The concept is really cool, unfortunately it's not as good as I would've liked. The Green Lantern Corps issues are all over the place since they feel the need to try to focus on every green lantern. This results in some craziness, though they do manage to hold it together by focusing on big events. The best part of this arc is the Hal Jordan story. I felt that his struggle to overcome his past really comes full circle here where he must prove himself to those who hate him. The ending is suitably [...]

    25. This story is like a great summer blockbuster, big reveals, huge fights, lots of action, and great visuals that are engaging from beginning to end. One of my favorite comic book stories, there are just so many places where I stop and think, wow this is so cool. I have read this multiple times and I enjoy each read through as much as I did the first time. The story is steeped in DC lore but doesn't require you to know every little piece to be enjoyed. It also sets up multiple DC and Green Lantern [...]

    26. Anything by Geoff Johns is great. I'm just sorry I waited so long to finally read this. I knew about most of the things that happened in this arc because things that have happened since 2007 have summed them up. That said, I wasn't surprised by much. But if I had read this while I was coming out, I would have geeked out big time! This sets up so much for Blackest Night! It probably deserves five stars, but like I said, I knew about some of the plot points, so the effect wasn't as big for me.

    27. 4.5 stars. I definitely enjoyed this story especially after reading the IMHO throwaway "Wanted: Hal Jordan" trade. This is such an epic story that was executed beautifully. The violence in this story was fairly brutal with matched the tone of the all-out war that was going on. Those who are not as familiar with DC mythology (especially that of Infinite Crisis and 52) will be lost in certain parts but those that are, are in for a treat.

    28. This is how comic book crossovers should be. All contained without the relevant ongoing series. The storyline is excellent, a great balance of character development and action. The art by Ivan Reis is brilliant, maybe not as good as his most recent work in Brightest Day, but brilliant none the less. This is the book that really puts Green Lantern on the map, and is definately one of the reasons why Green Lantern is a top 5 selling comic book today.

    29. One of the most awesome Green Lantern stories yet told, from the same guy who would go on to do 'Blackest Night' (DC Zombies with power rings). Sinestro leading an army of yellow lanterns is bad enough, but when you throw in the Anti-Monitor, Cyborg Superman and Superboy-prime, as well as the return of Parallax, shit really hits the fan
