Once again, throughout the DC Universe (same with Brian Michael Bendis's abortion called the Marvel Universe), continuity is running kind of odd involving the other titles. But, we should all have some faith in good ol' Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi and the other GL writers. The core titles of the GL universe are fucking sweet recently. Sodom Yat plunged himself into the Daxamite sun, thus turning the star yellow and allowing his people to gain Superman strength power to fight off Mongul. There have been revelations of the other different color spectrums, leading to some pretty shady under-dealings that the Guardians have been up to in the past. Oh, yeah, friggin Oa pretty much blew up.
What is really neat about this issue is that it resolves the whole elephant in the room that no one in the book talked about due to all the other craziness going on involving the War of Light: "When is Sinestro going up against Mongul?" What makes this issue worth blogging abut is that Sinestro finally goes up against Mongul.
Since Jordan's arrival into the GL Corps, Sinestro was always labeled an ugly stepchild, even though he was always by far the most willful. Shit, the guy created his own frigging corps. Mongul has always been a bad-ass and was the guy that beat Hal Jordan's ass after he destroyed Jordan's home of Coast City. By design, the two characters are perfectly opposite.
PS - It's a cold day in Hell when a DC Universe major event has better continuity than a Marvel Universe arc; RE: Dark Reign. Let's all thank Brian Bendis for fucking up The Hood, the Secret Warriors, and, uh...the Marvel Universe.
