    3. Sinestro is your modern day Adolf Hitler alien from space He brings the whole series together and gives it meaning Without him this series would be a lot less enjoyable And crikey who doesn t love be a fight between Two sentient planets, plus a superman prime suped up with a sunlight suit taking on the whole justice league and let s not forgetTHE ANTI MONITOR He devours universes and he just casually lands in New York Awesome.

    4. This continues the epic cosmic craziness of the Sinestro Corps War It s pretty much action all the way through with lots of double page spreads of what seems like hundreds of aliens fighting each other It s fun to pick out the Earth heroes in these scenes almost like a DC version Where s Waldo My favorite part is the epilogue after all of the action is complete Several surviving lanterns are show returning to regular life after the war The best is seeing Kilowog sitting down to dinner with his w [...]

    5. A fitting conclusion but not as strong as the first volume which had plenty of tension This one amounts to just one cosmic fight scene with a pretty typical GL formula I hate you, your evil and you kill people constructs something cool with ring and starts bludgeoning with it I hate you because I m evil constructs something equally as a cool and starts stabbing with it Rinse Lather Repeat And that s pretty much the whole book in a nutshell, I hope I didn t spoil it for anyone.

    7. Conclusion of the story begun in Green Lantern, Vol 4 The Sinestro Corps War, Vol 1Epic story with BIG stakes and great villains Parallax is getting annoying and overplayed, but then there s Cyborg Superman, Superboy Prime, and Sinestro his Sinestro Corps to contend with And oh how could I forget the Anti Monitor The Green Lanterns really have their work cut out for them Who will live Who will die This is the storyline that Geoff Johns run has been building up to, and it does not disappoint

    8. I really liked this storyline, but I felt that volume 2 was just not as good as the first volume It ended kinda wonky and was really slow at first Reading the Tales of the Sinestro Corps before this helped to understand the major players better Must read Crisis storylines too before you try to read this.

    9. Yep this is how you do an event and also end it I ve said it so many times that I don t like event book so let s go straight into the review This is the second book of the huge Sinestro Corp event Luckily it was not a publisher wide event like Final Crisis but rather a line wise event for all GL related books The first half of the series was great, wit it s super space operay bombastic fast paced explosion heavy issues Bad was an understatement of the situation the Green Lantern Corps found them [...]

    10. Pongo la misma rese a para ambos tomos y el especial de los Sinestro Tales porque los le en revistas separadas y ni s d nde arranca cada uno, pero en conjunto van narrando todos m s o menos lo mismo Se trata de un Evento comiquero con muchos pochoclos de colores, una historia con una premisa interesante no muy bien llevada y altibajos constantes Los dibujo se mantienen en un nivel bastante bueno pero no as los guiones, que oscilan entre partes entretenidas y estremecedoras y otras rid culas y ab [...]

    11. A good conclusion to the title conflict, and an introduction to something DC has really run with since Anything that features Guy Gardner, especially a well written Guy Gardner, will always get a bump up from me, bot overall I thought the book balanced action lots and lots of action with the right amount of character development, humor and mythology Also, a team book where the people actually work as a team Be still my beating heart

    15. The conclusion of the Sinestro Corps War had it s moments, but again a lot of the story was standalone and didn t flow as well as it could have.

    16. Wow Okay, trying not to swear too much because my Mom has decided to make her presence known on Luckily, she doesn t much like comics and therefore I doubt she ll read this.Holy Shit I am honestly exhausted I experienced many overwhelming emotions and my brain stopped working several times I got these from the library today and read them back to back for like 2 and a half hours dinner be dammed By the end of this, I had so much adrenaline in my body I legitimately wanted to attempt to lift a car [...]

    17. Teil 2 ist ein b se und brutale Fortsetzung des Sinestro Corps War Nachdem jetzt auch die Green Lanterns t ten d rfen, endet die Geschichte in einer All Out Schlacht auf der Erde Wir bekommen alte Bekannte wie Parallax, Cyborg Superman, Superman Prime und den Anti Monitor zu sehen, und die neuen Corps werden angeteast Ein sehr gutes Trade.Andererseits st rt mich so ein bisschen die Einf hrung der ganzen anderen Corps aus dem emotionalen Spektrum Dass das kommt muss sowieso jedem klar sein, der m [...]

    18. Picking up where the last volume ended, readers will find the Green Lantern Corps on the losing side of a war that will likely change the way the galaxy deals with justice The Sinestro Corps, a group that has similar powers to the Green Lantern Corps with a focus on fear rather than order, has set about to destroy the corps in order to take over Sinestro, once considered the best of the Green Lanterns before he was booted out because of his over emphasis on fear and violence is out for revenge o [...]

    19. This review assumes you have read Volume 1 of The Sinestro Corps War, is you haven t and don t want any spoilers for Volume 1, stop reading Why would you read about part 2 without reading part 1 So, Volume 1 of The Sinestro Corps War has set up a pretty good if basic story and revealed that the biggest battle between The Sinestro Corps and the Green Lantern Corps will take place on Earth Luckily for DC Comic fans, this allows Geoff Johns to bring in some other characters Hawkman, Superman, vario [...]

    20. This review appears for both volumes of the collected Sinestro Corps War story.How about that, they made me a Green Lantern fan You know, the superhero with the magic ring that makes him travel around space as a bright green policeman Geoff Jones and a wonderful art staff managed to grasp all the best parts of this superhero mythos and create some very engaging fantasy by tapping into grand themes Green represents life and willpower the absurd weakness to yellow is because yellow represents fear [...]

    21. A truly epic superhero space opera The prophecy of the Seven Corps war 8 counting the Black Lanterns and the foretelling of The Blackest Night is as great a mythology as anything the Norse or Egyptians had Translating emotion into colors and symbols has a very primal resonance with our species that is complimented here by the spectacle of intergalactic armies going to war in space in the names of these emotions The Sinestro Corps War proves that the larger than life, mythological aspect of super [...]

    22. What a great way to end it As with the first half, lots of fight scenes and close calls But now Hal and the rest of Earth s GL s are aware of Sinestro s true intention, which have to do with destroying Earth because of it s strong emotional power among other reasons So all those fight scenes move to Earth, bringing cameos and appearances from other DC character that try and help out before Sinestro gets his way.I loved seeing Green Lanterns killing people It was a great satisfaction after all th [...]

    23. When last we left the Lanterns, Mogo and the Corps were under assault from the Sinestro Corps including super villains like Cyborg Superman, Superman Prime, Arkillo and a sentient virus and the Guardians were bickering about an esoteric prophecy called Blackest Night This digest collects the second half of the Sinestro War story arc and sets things up for the Blackest Night arc that follows Lots of groundwork is laid here for future lantern stories lethal force is enabled for Green Lantern ring [...]

    24. Sending this space battle to Earth and adding in some colorful mythology improved the epic battle of green versus yellow, willpower v fear There s some interesting war time allegories, as the Green Lanterns sacrifice their morals for victory over the yellow guys The earthly exceptionalism is vexing space battles so often culminate on earth, and some Oans call earthlings the most diverse and emotional of all species I appreciate that this big story was limited to just two comics, but there s a b [...]

    25. This book took a while for me to even care about what was going on I even considered putting it down completely during the first few pages Of course, although I m quite familiar with what happens in Volume 1 of the Sinestro Corps War, it s possible that my lack of interest in the first few pages was due to the fact that I hadn t read the compiled edition.Of course, once Guy Gardner appears, all gets a lot better And, in fact, this story grows in general once things start getting a bit grounded [...]

    26. I really enjoyed the first volume of the Sinestro Corps War but the second is even better The second volume deepens the mystery of the Blackest Night and starts to pull in some of the other Lantern colors which will be introduced And it has one of the best moments I ve ever seen in the Green Lantern universe with Hal Jordan and the residents of the newly rebuilt Coast City I can t say without spoiling it but it s not often that a comic book makes me say Awwww out loud and that moment definitely [...]

    27. I didn t care for this as much as I have the other collections It was all over the place and didn t feel very coherent I think it suffers from the same thing that all of these massive crossover events suffer from too much bs They decide to do one of these and then they have to fill up all these different books with content it s just too much.Pulling it altogether into a single collection like this is great if the story is tight, which this one isn t The only purpose of this storyline was to setu [...]

    28. The conclusion to SCW was everything I hoped it would be and My favorite character is Guy Gardner, who provides the perfect barometer for the temperament of the story when he stops joking and making snide comments, that s when you know the sh has really hit There is a scene when he is infected with the same sentient, murderous bacteria that killed Kyle s mom and he is dying With his seemingly last breath, he still faces the hordes of Yellow Lanterns Bringing the intergalactic battle to earth al [...]

    29. EXCELLENT AGAIN The Sinestro Corps War rages as the great heroes of Earth realize Sinestro s has targeted them Specifically the brave residents of Coast City With the images of Return of Superman fresh in my mind I remember the destruction of Coast City and to know that though rebuilt, the people of neighboring cities have refused to occupy it There are still a few thousand living on it but the memories are still to painful But it means the world to the family of Hal Jordan as he endures what he [...]

    30. So I raved about Sinestro Corps Volume One 5 stars so what made Volume 2 drop to 3 stars Art Pat Gleason s art was prominently featured in this story while Ethan Van Sciver and others did one or two issues of the story Gleason s art is great for the Green Lantern Corps series he does with writer Peter J Tomasi but the cosmic level of the combat was somewhat lessened by his chaotic art and it was fun but the number of discernible combatants on the panel was not nearly as well defined as in Ivan R [...]
