The Origin Of Star Sapphire

Green Lantern (Volume 4) #19
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Daniel Acuna

I enjoyed Acuna's art this issue for some reason. That was odd. I also really am enjoying this arc. Hal Jordan might not be my favorite Green Lantern, but they mythology of the Green Lanterns is always interesting. This issue, we delve deep into their mythology when Carol Ferris recites the origin of the Star Sapphire. I remember reading somewhere that this was a retcon, but I don't see it as much of one. I mean it is pretty similar to everything I have read when it comes to the Zamarons creating the Star Sapphires. I think the only retcon is the idea that the Zamarons do it to establish love in the universe. I do not quite understand that. They think love is putting a world in suspended animation? That makes no sense. Hopefully, this idea will be more clear in future issues.
