The Green Lantern Corps is made up 7,200 of the bravest, toughest beings in the galaxy.
They have overcome great fear before — as a matter of fact that’s how they got their jobs — but not one member of the galaxy’s greatest police force has ever encountered anything as scary as the Sinestro Corps.
They will know fear — and there will be a lot less than 7,200 survivors.
Led by Sinestro, an alien warrior once hailed as the greatest Green Lantern before being revealed as a despot who maintained control over his sector of space by ruling through intimidation, this new corps has one goal: To make the universe feel fear.
To start, they recruit some of the nastiest villains around, including the murderous Superboy-Prime (the ex-hero who went homicidal in the 2006 classic, Infinite Crisis) and the Cyborg Superman (responsible for destroying an entire California city (as seen in the Death And Return Of Superman Omnibus).
Next up, they choose some very serious targets: Oa, homeworld of the Guardians of the Galaxy (founders of the GL Corps); Ion, a.k.a. Kyle Rayner, the most powerful member of the green good guys; and Mogo, a living planet and the heart and soul of the Lanterns.
The first volume of The Sinestro Corps War, penned by fan-favourite writers Geoff Johns and Dave Gibbons and illustrated by the likes of Ivan Reis, Patrick Gleason and Ethan Van Sciver, is as epic and pulse-pounding as any sci-fi film and full of gasp-causing revelations that will have you clamouring for the next book.
