Green Lantern #4

Issue #4 picks up right after the cliffhanger from last months issue. Sinestro's plan to destroy the Yellow Battery by sending Hal Jordan inside of it has failed, but (despite what the final panel might have teased) Hal Jordan does survive.

Both Sinestro and Jordan are jailed separately. Jordan is thrown into isolation until the last of his ring's energy has disapated. Sinestro, after hours of torture from his former followers (whose attempts to remove the green ring prove unfruitful), finds himself caged with survivors of a world who blame him for its destruction.

The issue has some moments including Hal's final construct and his risky (and, as so often the case with the New 52 version of the character) somewhat ill-thought out plan of escape which leaves us with yet another cliffhanger.

It's not a great issue, but it is a step up from last month that leaves us still in the dark what the long term plans for Sinestro's role in the New 52 are to be. Worth a look.
