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

GOOD THING: This is a sold action-filled issue, with a horde of repressed machine beings and our long-hunted Lanterns turning the tables on the Cyborg Superman.

BAD THING: Despite being a solid action story, the ending is rather anti-climactic. Don't get me wrong! It's nice to see that Boodika and the rest of the Alpha Lanterns are back to their old selves mentally, if not physically. I just wish that I could really believe this is the end of the Cyborg Superman. After all he's survived, it's a little hard to believe that his spirit could be vaporized by the willpower of a single Green Lantern.

The Final Verdict: Not a bad book, by any means - but nowhere near as Epic as the Green Lantern Corps should be and has been. Of course that could just be because I'm burned out on Cyborg Superman stories at this point. Regardless, it is still nice to see the Alpha Lanterns concept has been scrapped - no pun intended.
