Part three kicks off immediately following the explosive death of Oa. Kyle Rayner and Hal Jordan stand amongst the new batch of guardians and the rubble of their home. Despite Hal's attempts to take charge, the group descends into an argument over what to do next. Hal thinks it's best to attack Relic again, but with the aid of the magic fueled Red Lanterns. The Guardians, however, fear for what's left of the corps leaving the party at an impasse. While it's easy to look at the score board and understand that the GLC is getting knocked around, these pages do a great job of illustrating the frustration and desperateness of their situation. They are fighting a losing war and they know it. Before things get too intense, however, the entities return to steal the show, and Kyle Rayner's body.
While the majority of the corps is busy being hurled through space, John Stewart is in another space sector leading his small band of refugees to the Indigo Lantern home planet. In a cheeky bit, Stewart reveals that the password needed to reveal the planet is "nok nok" a play on the Indigo Lantern's signature single syllable utterance. While Stewart descends to talk with the Indigos, Kyle continues to be pulled along by the will of the entities. Fortunately, the Guardians soon find him and coach him through gaining mastery over the conflicting emotions. Pleased they saved him, the Guardians believe they can now use the power of the entities within Kyle to take another swing at Relic. Kyle shoots them down and ominously ends the issue by saying they should, in fact, be helping Relic.
Lights Out part three had a long going on. Although the narrative split into three different components, this was still the most productive issue to date. It seems that most of the stages are now set for the various groups to begin really getting into the heart of the story and, consequently, the real action. With all three teams at a crossroads, part four is sure to be an issue worth checking out. Stay tuned to fanboysanonymous.com for the next installment as we continue to follow the Lights Out event.
