Overall: We kick off with a flashback to the Qwardian known as the Weaponer creating the first Sinestro Corps ring for Sinestro. From there we head to the present, where Kyle Rayner is saving lives on Sinestro's homeworld of Korugar, while some disgruntled members of the Sinestro Corps watch. The Sinestro Corps members want to fight with Kyle, but are forbidden by Sinestro to start any trouble with Green Lanterns. After some smack talking back and forth, one member of the Sinestro Corps is prepared to attack Kyle when the Weaponer appears and kills the Sinestro Corps member with ease. He then goes on and squashes Kyle, which brings Soranik Natu(Kyle's girlfriend/Sinestro's daughter)into the fray, where she is also easily defeated. The Weaponer tells Kyle that he wants Sinestro to go to Qward, or else he'd kill Soranik. With that the Weaponer teleports away with Soranik, and Kyle rushes to Earth to tell Sinestro what had transpired. Sinestro listens and tells Kyle that he refuses to help because he wants Kyle to try to rescue Soranik himself(and fail), that way Soranik can see how unworthy Kyle is of her affections. With that Kyle rears back and pounds Sinestro in the face, ending this issue.
I definitely enjoyed this comic. It set up a new threat(the Weaponer), put a Lantern in jeopardy(Soranik), and is forcing Sinestro and Kyle to put beside their(MANY)differences to work together to defeat the Weaponer. I really can't say much more than a Kyle/Sinestro team-up will be flat out awesome.
Score: 8 1/2 out of 10.So remind me again, WHY do we need Hal Jordan around?
