One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Lantern #52

BAD THING: For all the build-up regarding the White Lantern, surprisingly little is done with the concept in this issue. Indeed, Sinestro spends most of the issue incapacitated and the whole part of the plot centering upon the idea of an avatar of Life itself is basically placed on hold for an issue.

GOOD THING: We DO get some page-time for the long-neglected John Stewart, who has to fight the Black Lantern of his wife AND the planet he killed through his negligence. And his main ally in this fight? Fatality - a serial killer of Green Lanterns with a special hatred for John Stewart.

The Final Verdict: The main plot is put on hold for a month as we head into Blackest Night #8. This is made up for by some GREAT scenes for John Stewart. Good solid issue that whets the appetite for the conclusion of this excellent mini-series.
