4.0 out of 5 stars great for fans
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,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Filler, nothing more
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...

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
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.
