Green Lantern #12

As Hal Jordan and Sinestro fight off Black Hand and his army of raised zombies the Guardians of the Universe continue their plans to raise the "Third Army" which will destroy the various Lantern Corps including the Green Lanterns.

If you've been missing zombies since Blackest Night ended this issue is for you. Howver, if you were thankful that Blackest Night ended and hoped never to see the Black Lanterns again (like me) then there's little worth noting except for the what is teased to happen in the coming months including (God help us) Hal Jordan becoming a Black Lantern.

The main story between Jordan and Sinestro and the zombies isn't all that interesting, and the reveal of the Book of Black's prophecy is troubling if that's Geoff Johns' plan for the character. Sligthly more interesting is the Guardians plans for the other Green Lanterns of Earth who have been singled out as their biggest obstacle to removing the Corps. The choice of Renato Guedes to replace Doug Mahnke's art on the title also means the comic has a less crisp look and feel than the previous issues of the title. Hit-and-Miss.
