This one is big...
is huge, actually. Peter J. Tomasi takes a bowl the size of the
universe, throws in it the storylines that for the past several
months Geoff Johns, Tony Bedard, Peter Milligan, and himself have
been pre-cooking, adds some badass artwork by Chriscross, and a few
sprinkles of that old Gardner attitude, and the result is a yummy
conclusion to the "Rise of the Third Army" that exceeds the
expectations of an arc that at times seemed to have lost its way,
but in the end did pay off.
Tomasi brings together the threads from all four Lantern titles in
such a way that the pieces fit perfectly when the time comes for the
GL Corps and their allies to confront those little, despicable
Guardians. Mogo's return, Kilowog's highjacking of the central
battery, Guy's sacrifice, Kyle's arrival, Atrocitus' gift to the
Guardians, the inevitable battle that ensues, and much, much more,
are a non-stop sequence of explosive events that keep the momentum
going from the first page to the very last one. Annuals are not
usually this good!
