Tomasi gets these characters – despite having a huge cast of this book he knows the ins and outs of these characters – their strengths and their weaknesses and utilizes this in order to save Guy Gardner from being a Red Lantern. Kyle’s love and compassion for his friend that doesn’t allow him to give up no matter what, Soranik’s medical knowledge, Kilowog’s logic, and Mogo’s well planetary powers. This was great storytelling. I loved the moment where Mogo created Red and Green constructs of Guy’s life. I thought about my own life and seeing images of the good and the bad – what an emotionally powerful moment. The final page where they recite the oath as they return to earth was incredible! What a great issue!
