Today DC Universe Online Legends #17 comes out. Written by Star Wars comic writer Tom Taylor, this issue will wrap up The Brainiac – Sinestro Corps War arc. After reading #16, I can’t wait to see how this one turns out.

Hal Jordan is seriously conflicted as he and the Green Lantern Corps arrive at Korugar to “contain” the war between Sinestro’s Yellow Lanterns and Brainiac – but can they save the planet of innocents caught in the crossfire? And how desperate could things possibly get that would see Hal team up with Sinestro for one final battle?!

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Bruno Redondo
Colorist: Jorge Gonzalez
Cover Artist: Doug Mahnke
