Green Lantern 34

Secret Origin part 6
Writer: Geoff Johns
Pencils: Ivan Reis

I have found the Secret Origin run to be very good unlike some people. This issue shows what Hal was really like when he started out. The cocky arrogant angry man he was. And of all people Sinestro was there to help him along the way. In this issue you see a side of Sinestro that we've never seen before. The kind caring man he really is...or was. During Sinestro and Hal's battle well the end of the battle Hal creates a green plane and it runs straight through a yellow barrier and defeats the bad buy. Of course Sinestro doesn't believe him. Carol's father isn't really golfing at Pebble beach. He's sick and I'm assuming from the picture on his deathbed at his house. Carol said that after Hal's father died it tore him up inside. He couldn't get over the fact that he was actually gone. So Hal decides to stay with Carol for a while. Later he meets up with Sinestro and has a long discussion about his "anger issues." After a nice heart felt discussion about anger Sinestro and Hal decide to part ways. They shake hands and a message instantly comes from both rings that they have disobeyed teritorial edict and they should report to OA for disipline immediately. This is how the issue ends.

All in all i was pleased with this issue. The ending, in my oppinion, was the best part. I'm pretty excited for next months. I'm willing to bet thats when Sinestro goes crazy, but then again what do I know.
