Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The second, concluding volume of the ultra-epic Sinestro Corps War finds Sinestro and his fear-instilling corps of evil heading to Earth and watching their plans come to fruition, with Green Lantern's Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner reeling while a bloody war continues in the heavens. Everything comes to a head here, as nearly every superhero on the planet unites with the Green Lantern corps as the war comes home, Kyle Rayner makes a come back, and a new Ion is born. All this, plus a new direction that gets forged for the Green Lanterns as well, which leads into the upcoming Blackest Night, which promises to have an impact unlike which none will see coming. As he has during his entire run since relaunching the series, writer Geoff Johns (Flash, Infinite Crisis, 52) manages to make Green Lantern one of the absolute most compelling superhero comics on the market. Co-writers Dave Gibbons and Peter J. Tomasi fare pretty well too on the Green Lantern Corps issue interludes, and the brilliant artwork throughout from Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, and Patrick Gleason only sweetens this hardcover. All in all, superhero epics rarely get better than this, and as The Sinestro Corps War comes to a close, we are reminded just how enjoyable mainstream spandex epics can be. Now bring on the Blackest Night!

I bought this volume thinking it would be just volume two, it turned out to be both volumes together, so just know that you can save a lot of money and time knowing this item description is wrong, this collects both volumes in one paperback.

One of the best Graphic Novels I have read in ages. (Literally) Apart from 52, which I believe is a groundbreaking accomplishment for DC, this was another. The green Lantern Corps have neer looked this good. With twists, surprises, and an immense, looming threat of the Corps throughout the series, this series tilted on strong elements and solid action. SPOILERS folks!! Sinestro was always a thorn in the Green Lanterns' side, but never like this. Is there a single reader who can tell me they were not taken aback by the splash page that contained 4 other galactic level threats who were going to be part of this terror spree across the universe for Sinestro's corps? That, with the worrying factor that the Lanterns are having to fight the Sinestro Corps members with one hand tied behind their backs (Use of lethal force denied), how ingenious is that? And even with the new Ion, the threat level remains till the end?? Not to mention that priceless brief moment with Batman. Ingenious. DC outdid themselves here. The art is excellent, detailed and the splash pages with the battles between good and evil, priceless, particularly since they pay homage to several science fiction, space related characters. Intelligently written, meticulously done, this is intergalactic War indeed. Too bad, things like World War Hulk, and worse, Civil War, which were potentially, beat em up trounce the good guys stories, got the larger part of the cake. Shows what the world's preferences are becoming. Read this, and you will find the new age cominc fan in you again.

Please note that this product as listed currently on Amazon (Paperback, published 2011) has the whole Sinestro Corps War stories that were previously collected in two volumes.

The story as many other reviewers have said is top-notch. Please advise that some of the art, particularly in those of the Green Lantern Corps issues, are very gory and bloody. The creators have even acknowledged this due to this being a "War" event.

This is one story that has a tremendous impact on the future of the Green Lantern Corps.

This paperback does not have the side stories and tie-ins. Those can be found in "Green Lantern: Tales of the Sinestro Corps".

A great argument in the fight between killers and peacekeepers. When is killing acceptable? When should our protectors be given the right to kill? It's when you see your comrades dying because the most you are allowed to do is restrain or incapacitate the enemy, while they find it so easy to see you die. "There's a point, far out there, when the structures fail you and the rules aren't weapons anymore, they're .... shackles letting the bad guy get ahead."

Great Story, I wasn't a real GL fan until I read this and I'm so glad it lead to an even bigger story.

The Sinestro War is an epic read if you are familiar with Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis, and the reborn Green Lantern Corps, but I believe it'd be quite a different story for me if I didn't have all that background info. It is not like the first crisis in that regard, though background there is also helpful. Here, in this book, background is required for it to make any real sense. That being said, I loved it because it gave more on some favorite heroes, and especially because it deepened m
favorite villains, Superboy-Prime and the Antimonitor.

This has to be one of the densest stories published in the DC line. So much happens on every page! I was a bit overwhelmed and had to rely on a Wiki to make sure I hadn't missed anything important. And yet, very clearly, this was just a stage setter... the book is littered with references to the Blackest Night event that is gathering on the horizon, past "Final Crisis". I think Final Crisis itself was seeded in this story as well, if the return of some infamous baddies from prior crises is any indication. :) I dare say no more for fear of spoilers...

The fact that so much plot is squeezed into so few pages does have some bad effects however. The art felt frantic to me at times, and some panels, while gorgeous, need several minutes of consideration before you get everything that's going on. Some major events in the plot could well have been several TPBs on their own, but are dealt with quickly (Parallax taking over and leaving another Green Lantern for example). I for one thought this story would've been better told over maybe 1.5x the issues that it was? Anyway, this makes it a must-re-read kind of a book/ story. No way did I get everything this first time.

The eruption of colors universe wide at the end (again, trying to avoid spoilers here :P ) is fun. The philosophical schism in the Guardians is convincing, and the "dark side" implications of the new First Law (of ten) written into the Book of Oa could not be clearer. I'd say anyone that enjoyed Green Lantern: Rebirth should read this book too, leading up to Blackest Night. Reasonable knowledge of all the DC crises thus far and some understanding of Green Lantern mythos are must haves before this tale can be enjoyed...
