DCnU - Green Lantern #1 from DC's New 52
This comic pretty much grabbed me from page 1. What? Sinestro a Green Lantern again? Okay, there was a little bit of my mind blown right there.
And then we see Hal Jordan trying to adjust to real life, without a ring. And doing so poorly.
Sinestro taking on a member of the corps named after him? And destroying a yellow power ring? Awesome.
Johns does some good work here. People sometimes complain that he is too kind to his favorite characters. Hal Jordan has some pretty good sad sack moments in this one.
Mahnke's art is excellent for this series. The feel of the light constructs is good, and there were some cool aliens shown as part of the Sinestro Corps group that was enslaving Korugar, Sinestro's home planet.
