Who's The Boss?

So what's Sinestro going to do now that his self imposed exile has been interrupted by Lyssa Drak?  Well as we saw there's a anti-emotion cult out there sweeping the universe to spread the word (and death) of not feeling feelings, and Arkillo is using the Sinestro Corps to start another war against the Green Lanterns.  I'm pretty sure Sinestro doesn't want to deal with any of this nonsense, but at the end of the first issue we see that Arkillo is keeping Sinestro's daughter, the Green Lantern Soranik as his hostage.  Now that daddy's home I'd like to quote Ricky Ricardo, the Sinestro Corps is gonna "have some splainin to do".  Let's check it out.

Explain It!:

The battle between Arkillo's Sinestro Corps and Sinestro is on, and as you should of already guessed, Sinestro whooped their monkey asses.  Hell even when Sinestro killed a guy, and the ring flew off trying to find a new recruit, Sinestro was able to snatch it out of the air and destroy it.  This act is what really stopped the fight.  Why the hell would you mess with someone who can destroy one of the most powerful weapons in the universe with a single thought?  The fight is over, and Sinestro wants to reconcile with his daughter.  Now for somebody who has the daddy issues that Soranik has, it's going to be a bit of a stretch.  So Sinestro shows her the few Korugarian survivors he liberated last issue, (if you don't remember they were being offered as sacrifice, and were in stasis pods.) and tells her how he's going to find the rest of them.  Also as a little present to her, Sinestro lets her be the doctor who works on Arkillo's wounds he suffered during their fight.  From the look on her face when she stands before Arkillo, we might just have Soranik becoming a agent of fear.

While Sinestro's grand plan is to save the survivors of Korugar he'll still need a place for them to call home.  So as a way to prove his supremacy over his fellow Lanterns, Sinestro recruits the Lanterns that might oppose his leadership the most, so that when it comes down to it, he can show them that he's the boss....... like a boss.  Okay so listen up, Sinestro takes his Lantern's and they go to a prison planet.  The idea is that the planet's for the Korugarians, and the moon will be the new HQ for the Yellow Lanterns, but before the planet is suitable for the last survivors of Korugar, it has to cleaned.  Yeah so there's a slaughter of all the prisoners of this planet.  In the end Sinestro has two newer Corpsmen he chose to pick the untrustworthy of the Corps...... To well kill the untrustworthy.  I guess his point is made.  Come back next month to get your fear on, in what should be a really cool ongoing title.

Bits and Pieces:

While this was more of Sinestro just getting his house in order kind of issue, it was still really good.  Not overly exciting, but a few skirmishes will keep you interested, and Eaglesham's artwork will keep your eyes glued to the beautiful pages he's put together.  How this series will coexist with the rest of the Lantern series is unknown at this point, but I can't wait to find out.  Keep coming back to this title , because you'll want to see this book burn with Sinestro's might.
