Ame-Comi Girls #4

Influenced by the Star Sapphire bequeathed to her by a dying alien on the moon, astronaut Carol Ferris returns to Earth and picks a very public fight with Power Girl over the heart of Jimmy Olsen. Unprepared for the situation, Power Girl is saved by Earth's new Green Lantern, Jade (the young blind Chinese woman who was introduced in last month's issue).

The second-half of the issue deals with the introduction of a new villain to the Ame-Comi Girls Universe. This means we get Sinestra, a female version of Sinestro who was banished to the Anti-Matter Universe after nearly destroying her own, as well as the introduction of the yellow power ring and the Black Lantern Corps (which the character led before her exile).

Personally, I'd have preferred the comic to stay away from the various rainbow corps other than Sinestra (especially the Black Lanterns), but the introduction of the backstory of the character is certainly no more ridiculous than Geoff Johns' original concept. Worth a look.

[DC, $3.99]
