Guess you had to be there.

I've seen a lot of chatter on the Web about how good the Sinestro Corps book is, but this just sounds like a huge mess of a story to me.  And in what way does it "pay off in spades"?

You almost lost me early on with this:

Quote
Sinestro formed his own fear inducing Corps of the most malevolent monsters in the New Earth Universe.

...followed by this:

Quote
See, in sector 2418, the yellow Sinestro ring chose Batman first before settling for Amon Sur, Abin Sur's villainous son.

I know Batman devolved into a prize jerk in recent years, but are we now saying he's rotten enough that a "Sinestro ring" would choose him to join a "fear-inducing corps of the most malevolent monsters" around? 

How did Batman react to an impartial, character-judging device scanning his soul and declaring him a bad guy?

I'd pick the Joker ahead of Batman on the scary-o-meter.]

So, is it the original Anti-Monitor or a New Earth version like the new Monitors?

Why is Superboy-Prime teaming up with the entity who destroyed his world or something very similar to it?

And why doesn't Hal just create a giant can of insecticide to use againt the yellow grasshopper of fear?

In Green Lantern #17, Batman was chosen. Check it out.  Smiley

Anti-Monitor Returns

The storylines are all coming together. We finally discover the significance of New Earth, as well as, how Sinestro returned from the antimatter universe before Infinite Crisis with a new power ring. I'm guessing the Anti-Monitor's been around longer than we are lead to believe.
