The Return Of Star Sapphire

Green Lantern (Volume 4) #18
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Daniel Acuna

One of Green Lantern's most famous villains, Star Sapphire, returns in this issue. Once again possessing Hal's old flame Carol Ferris and eventually possessing his current flame, Cowgirl. This was an okay issue. Nothing really to write home about. The costume on the cover is hideous, luckily inside it is not the same artist. Acuna's art is weird though but you get used to it. I think his art fits Green Lantern better than it fits anything else. I hope Carol doesn't become a permanent member of Hal's supporting cast again because Carol and Hal are one of the few comics couples that have managed to move on from eachother. That is all that can be said by the main story. The back-up is a lot more fun and deals with the new Sinestro Corps. The art is much better because well, it is Dave Gibbons and not Daniel Acuna. Plus I mean an evil sentient virus as a member of the Sinestro Corps....Geoff Johns, you rule!
