    Ending ruined it.

    One of the weakest stories to come out of the Brightest Day which makes this an infant with hemophilia The only redeeming quality is the artwork Grade D

    I good start and a wonky finish.I really like this arc when it started, it played with a lot of history and also had some nice character dynamics but yeah the end is a bit too convenient for my taste.World The art is great, I liked the power of the rings, the constructs and the facial expressions This is a story that is about emotions and the facial expressions needed to come through in the art and it did, great stuff The world building here is great, it calls back to the lore of Sinestro and hi [...]

    I ve recently spent some time catching up on the pre New 52 GLC trades, and although I ve enjoyed all of them, this one is probably my favorite for several reasons Great charactersThe Weaponer is a fantastic character, and I was impressed with how much depth Bedard was able to give him in such a limited amount of time His motivations are clear, and his actions make sense given the circumstances He might be a bad guy, but I was pulling for him, which made the ending even sadder It was also great [...]

    A ripping, action packed tale to add to the Green Lantern collection, this story serves as a minor aside before the upcoming War of the Green Lanterns story It s essentially a very simple tale the Weaponer who created Sinestro s yellow power ring now seeks revenge by kidnapping his Green Lantern daughter Soranik Natu and an excuse to ignite some fist fights and ring slinging action That said, the simple story is handled well, with strong writing and dynamic art Tyler Kirkham Matt Banning s splas [...]

    This is solid story about an old ally that Sinestro betrayed coming back for revenge The Weaponer forged Sinestro s original power ring with the promise that Sinestro would help his people So, the Weaponer kidnaps Soranik Natu, Sinestro s daughter, and girlfriend of Green Lantern Kyle Rayner The battle ensues from there as John Stewart, Ganthet, Boodikka, and Hannu face the Weaponer, his people and the entire Sinestro Corps to get Sora back.This was a much interesting storyline than the Alpha L [...]

    The Green Lantern Corps finds themselves caught in the crossfire in this Brightest Day installment of their self titled series The Weaponer from Qward, who crafted Sinestro s first ring, seeks revenge on the former Lantern for his planet s disgrace With Sinestro s daughter held prisoner, Kyle Rayner and the Lanterns must battle the ever prepared Weaponer to free their Lantern comrade, then side with him and the Qwardians against an invasion force of the Sinestro Corps Tony Bedard s attempt to cr [...]

    I like the weaponer character, he s at least a little interesting, and I like that Sinestro s ring s origin is taken further That s about it though for positives.Soranik becomes a damsel in distress, the Green Lantern Corps and and Sinestro Corps fight each other, circumventing a supposed truce between the two by not actually using their rings Kyle lampshades the ridiculousness of it, but that doesn t justify the ridiculous premise.Very little character development Overall, this did feel like a [...]


    Kyle

    The worst of all the GL Brightest day tie ins I simply can not believe that the events in this collection will amount to anything in the grand view of the GL story arc A waste of Sinestro s time One of the greatest of the DC super villains, and a set up with so much potential he s going to save his daughter but, nothing gets played with No ret con, to character growth, nothing insightful to his personality whatsoever And then there s a Firestorm cameo ber lame ber, ber lame 2 5


    Shannon Appelcline

    Another solid GLC story that pays good attention to its massive cast The return of the Qwards and the Weaponeer is certainly the high spot When the Sinestro Corps show up, the whole attention to the colors of the rainbow gets a little old.


    Matt

    Bedard s Corps run is a lot better than his New Guardians run has been, and he introduces an interesting character here I love the expansion on backstory that gets introduced, and he uses the tension between Rayner and Sinestro to great effect.


    TJ Shelby

    I m honestly shocked by the number of 2 and 3 star reviews that this has received I really enjoyed it I m also very impressed with Tony Bedard This is a brilliantly carved story focusing around the Weaponer of Qward who forged Sinestro s original yellow ring for him.


    Shahriar Shafin

    Deserves 2 stars Gave extra 2 just for the art It s, mesmerizing.


    Awale Ismail

    Eye ravishing art, and a decent ish story Kyle Rayner s dialogue seemed wack and out of place whilst some of the characterization seemed of to me but eh Decent stuff.


    Koen

    Great guy, this weaponer wtf was up with that ending Totally didn t see that coming


    Arturo

    Weaponer, Sinestro Corps, Firestorm.


    Nicolas

    I m usually not too crazy about theses Corps books, but this was actually really enjoyable I thought the Weaponer was a cool character, and I much prefer Kyle to Guy as a protagonist.


    Eric

    I enjoyed this side story to Brightest Day very much The Weaponer was a cool character and the story kept me engaged.


    Scott

    I really liked the Weaponer storyline and the Weaponer as a character is way cool One of my favorite story arcs so far in the GL Corps books.


    Scribblescribe

    It was alright.


    John Yelverton

    Whereas this was another great Green Lantern story, I find it hard to believe that the Weaponers would have taken this long to rebel or seek revenge against Sinestro.


    Eric Mikols

    This volume was just plain solid I really like this title and I hope the jump to the New 52 doesn t ruin it.
