Sinestro Corps saddens me, because now I have solid proof that large DC crossovers with tons of characters and dog piles of uber-powerful villains can actually be awesome. Not just “decent” or “good”, but on a level of quality that may actually merit “classic”. (COIE was long before my time and I’ve never felt compelled to read it…)

This makes Countdown an even bigger disappointment.

Oh, well, I’ll just eagerly await the second Corps War and the Black Lanterns. And stock up on tons of comfort chocolate for when Mogo finally bites it.

I love how even a tiny Alan Moore story which was constructed more or less in the manner illustrated here manages to launch probably DC’s best crossover of recent memory. Not sure I’m all aboard the corps-spectrum train, but it’s more ambitious and narrative-based than anything having to do with Countdown — especially the Arena atrocity.

Funny stuff!

Besides:

Is any Corp insane enough to give Joker a power ring?

…Ya know, Sodam Yat wouldn’t have been so annoying if A> he appeared earlier than the war (not counting the Alan Moore story) and B> They didn’t fawn all over him in the last few Gibbons-Written issues of Corps.

I swear, fucker was like a Mary Sue. The Tomasi-written issue that actually gave Yat a backstory (and much beatings by Emoboy-Prime) was actually the first time I could stand the character. Now if only GLC would get a different artist.

The series was good but I would have liked it to have a proper ending instead of the “everything is back to normal…or is it???” thing we got and the Superboy Prime vs. Sodam Yat fight pissed me off tremendously but Sig was right when he said it was DC’s best crossover recently.

Oh, good. I’m glad I’m not the only person finding the spectrum of rings a bit silly. (Periwinkle Lanterns clearly use the emotion of “seeing that there’s only one piece of pie left, and asking if anyone else wants it even though you’re hoping they say no”.)

There’s already a pink power ring. They wrapped it around Songbird’s neck in the Marvel U.

I’ve never understood why DC still uses Sodam Yat’s name. The pun on Daxamite should be quite obvious. They really want the Greatest Green Lantern to be called the “Sodomite”??

I haven’t read Sinestro Corps yet, but I eagerly await the adventures of Damned Yacht the Space Cabbie. I hope his backstory explains why he is such a shockingly well-dressed space cabbie.
