BAD THING: Based on the cover art, my worries regarding last issue and Soranik becoming a girl-hostage for the sake of the story appear to have been well-founded.
GOOD THING: Thankfully, Soranik isn't in kept in bondage for any part of the issue. Indeed, the whole issue is a real treat and does explore one aspect of the Green Lantern mythos that somehow went ignored during The Sinestero Corps War. Namely, how the Qwardians of the Anti-Matter universe were not willing partners with The Sinestero Corps but slaves to the will of Sinestero. This explains a lot of what we saw in the earlier series but was never stated outright.
The Final Verdict: A solid issue with a worrisome cover, that ads some insight into The Sinestro Corps War and some extra background to a group of villains that have been curiously absent from the Green Lantern mythos ever since Rebirth.
