Book Description

24 July 2009 Green Lantern Corps
Protecting the galaxy from evil, the Green Lantern Corps is the fearless light in its blackest night. Commanding power rings that allow the bearer to project his will into reality, evil stands no chance against them! In the aftermath of the Sinestro Corps war, the powerful and beautiful inhabitants of Zamaron, led by their queen, the Star Sapphire, determine that their animating force - love - is what's needed to 'cure' Sinestro's army...whether they like it or not. A Corps delegation is sent to Zamaron, but nobody could have foreseen the results. Peter Tomasi ("Light Brigade") and regular Corps artists Patrick Gleason and Drew Geraci present another chapter leading up to the massive Blackest Night storyline!

4.0 out of 5 stars great for fans 6 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is basically just a warm-up to Blackest night, introducing the new Star Sapphire corps, and actually not much happens in the story, which is a big disappointment. This is a great read for fans, who are willing to read the next few novels as well (Rage of The Red Lanterns and Agent Orange) before the main event: Blackest Night.

All the big-hitters are here, Guy and Kyle, but titular Star Sapphires dont really feature much, their importance not really exposed (which is fine as this is just a prelude). Therefore this is not recommended for casual readers (much is referred to from previous strories) and nothing is really resolved. A new law is added to the Book of OA which is always quite exciting and will probably have ramifications.

If, like me, you dont read the actual comics and wait for the graphic novels (in paperback), then this is a great gap-filler until the rest arrive in paperback, and Blackest Night in June/July. In the meantime I suggest reading all the Sinestro Corps war stuff, it's pivotal to the storyline.

In conclusion a great read (even if it is mostly centred on an obscure Sinestro-corps baddie) but aimed at fans only.

1.0 out of 5 stars Filler, nothing more 24 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this because I wanted to be a completists and own everything in the lead up to the Blackest Night. I should not have bothered. This collection of issues barely covers the entry of the Star Sapphires into the upcoming War involving the Seven Corps of the Emotional Spectrum and the Blackest Night. You're thrown into the middle of several stories (Sinestro Corps serial killers who are targeting Green Lanterns, and Guy Gardner and his romance with the recently resurrected Ice) and yet another edict from the Guardians. There isn't even any real backstory on the Zamarons or the Sapphire energy from old Green Lantern stories. It's a mess, and not worth buying at all. Avoid at all costs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sinful not to own. 28 Jun 2009
By Axel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The idea of the Green Lantern Corps is one of the genuinely genius concepts in the DC or any comics universe. Superficially similar in nature to the Jedi Knights of Star Wars, the Green Lantern Corps are essentially space police, and their tales chronicle the exploits of sentient representatives from various solar systems around the galaxy, given immensely powerful rings that are powered by will. Lanterns know no fear, or are at least able to overcome it.

This edition collects issues 27-32 of the regular, currently ongoing DC comics series Green Lantern Corps (GLC), and is the second full collection featuring the work of "new" writer Peter Tomasi. It's a strong collection of exciting, interesting stories, with an epic scope that is made all the more intriguing due to the broader narrative going on in the background, namely the impending "war of light" (a prophesied conflict between representatives of the emotional spectrum, each signified by a different color, green representing courage or will) to be chronicled in the "Blackest Night" series, still to be published/released. It's not necessary to know about it, but for regular readers, it adds to the richness of the tapestry that serves as the backdrop to the stories here. Trust me, if you're into science fiction, horror, you like military style movies and are a fan of Star Wars, this is a volume you will probably enjoy very much, although I would also recommend you buy the other GLC volumes offered here on Amazon.

The basic plots of the six issues collected here have been touched on by the other review, so I'll just briefly focus instead on what works in each one. The art by guest artist Luke Ross in the first two chapters is stellar and a good contrast to the often confusing if never boring Patrick Gleason who draws the final four chapters. These two issues quickly capture the peril of corps life, and the magic inherent in the GLC concept. The threat to the corps involves their family, and is creepy to boot. The meat of the collection is the final four chapters, involving a genuinely scary and threatening villain, and I congratulate Tomasi on his originality in her/its creation. (Gleason's art makes it sometimes difficult to tell.) Kryb is a member of the Sinestro Corps, mortal enemies of the GLC and wielders of rings powered by fear. Her mission is novel; to steal and possess the children of GLC members from different worlds. Horrific to look at, Kryb is also powerful, managing to hold off several lanterns on her own. Think of a crazed terrifying alien mother creature abducting the children of others, and you will get the idea. Also in this volume, Tomasi continues to exploit one of the greatest strengths of the series, which is that characters can and do die. Green Lanterns die in the series all the time, and there's a real sense of peril; characters one gets attached to can go any minute. In fact, regular readers of the series will often take this fact for granted, and it will sometimes sneak up on you, so that when a character actually dies, there's some genuine surprise. By far the most intriguing part of the collection though, is the "diplomatic" confrontation between the Guardians and the Zamarons, ancient relatives who separated from them eons before. The Guardians are threatened by increasingly obvious displays of power by the Zamarons, which rivals that of the Guardians, and undertake a tension filled visit to their home planet. The Zamorons believe that love alone can save the universe, while the Guardians believe all emotion is dangerous. Will and logic alone drives them, and the difference in philosophies sets up a key conflict likely to be explored in the upcoming `war of light.'

Tomasi is continuing the strong tradition of storytelling begun by Dave Gibbons when the series launched, and this volume is an improvement on his previously uneven writing. The six issues collected here form a very strong, very compelling narrative. Patrick Gleason does his usual to do justice to the story drawing the final four chapters. His work is solid, and even spectacular in some places. It is also busy and difficult to follow in parts. He has however been a stalwart regular of the series, but I am beginning to feel that he's reached the pinnacle of his growth here, and that it is time for him to move on to new challenges. If so, Luke Ross would be an excellent replacement, although, DC is hardly ever that smart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fear battles love 16 July 2010
By Barbara L. Lemaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With the Sinestro Corps war having ended, we can move onto more important things, like Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner opening an intergalactic bar on Oa (called Warriors). However, the yellow-ringed Sinestro Corps still wander the universe and strike at the Lanterns' families. A new corps, the Star Sapphires emerges, from the Zamarons, immortal beings who split from the Guardians millennia ago since they believe in the power of love to heal while the Guardians value logic and reason and seek to shut out the emotional spectrum entirely. Yellow Lantern Kryb appears, and she's far scarier than the Quintet seen in the "Eye of the Beholder" storyline. The third law is enacted, forbidding romantic relations between lanterns, and this potentially will affect Kyle and Soranik Natu, Guy and Tora, Hal Jordan and...everyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Sapphires Are Awesome! 21 July 2011
By zombie phreak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Okay, the only time I've ever read about the Star Sapphires before this was that one issue where she was introduced in the Silver Age where her powers and origin were only vaguely explained. But this book along with Blackest Night did a great job of filling in the gaps in my knowledge.

So the Star Sapphires have their own version of the Guardians, but they are all female and they are powered by love instead of will. Not only did this book tell me more about the sapphires, but it had awesome side stories about Guy Gardener opening a bar on Oa for the Green Lanterns to relax in, the Sinestro Corps attacking the families of the Green Lanterns, and about Kryb stealing the babies of Green Lanterns.

I originally thought the book was going to be just an annoying prequel to Blackest Night, but I was very happy to find out that this was a story arc that could stand on it's own two feet and had a lot to add to the overall storyline of the Green Lantern Corps.

This is a must read for any fans of Green Lantern, or anyone trying to get more background info about the Star Sapphires or the storyline leading up to Blackest Night.

3.0 out of 5 stars Into Violet 28 Oct 2011
By SAMaierson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a huge Green Lantern fan and have been reinvigorated by Geoff Johns handling of the mythos. With the unveiling of the emotional spectrum I was immediately engaged and interested in what was going on. It turned some of the lamer weaknesses into viable deficiencies in the weapon, directly related to the wielders mental state.

With that said, this outing is OK regarding the story's development. I really only grabbed this title out of interest for the development of the spectrum and how the Star Sapphires would be incorporated into it. It's an entertaining story but it's nothing special. Rage of the Red Lanterns and Agent Orange or vastly superior works.
