When elderly Judge Sheko is about to sentence the serial killing Prince Karsik to death, the king orders her bailiff Parthu to kill her. As Sheko is near death, a Red Lantern ring finds her. Now, Sheko is fueled by rage and is using her new powers to dispense justice on her homeworld.

Ysmault. Home of the Red Lanterns:

Bleez is in the Kralvar's medical bay explaining Atrocitus' return to Guy Gardner.The former Green Lantern promises to find the fallen Rankorr once the remaining Red Lantern rings are found. With Kara Zor-El guarding and befriending Bleez, Guy's search leads the Red Lanterns to Primeen, where police are failing to stop Sheko. In addition to that, Atrocitus has discovered the newest Red Lantern. Will he or Guy be successful in recruiting the angry judge, or will her power be too much for them?

5Story - 5: This series has been surprisingly good. Initially, I wasn't expecting much from the whole Red Lantern Supergirl thing. I felt it was more of a publicity stunt, and it may well be one. Yet, it works. We don't see much of Kara in this issue compared to previous ones, but her scenes with Bleez are great. I certainly want Kara to continue to be part of the Red Lantern Corps. Her time with them has been both interesting and entertaining.

5Art - 5: Visually, this book is stunning. The strength of both Vitti and Calafiore is definitely space and sci-fi, which this title has in spades.

5Cover Art - 5: This one made me think that my family's cats control the universe, but the art was incredible on it.
