You have to give it to Geoff Johns, he knows how to write a good comic book. I go back and forth between loving and hating the man (I really only hate him for bringing back Barry and Hal, and for his ridiculous explanation as for why men cannot be Star Sapphires.) but this was a damn good issue and it was so cool to see the four Earth Green Lanterns having to use other colors. Hal is Yellow Sinestro Corps, John is a compassionate Indigo Tribesman, Guy is of course a rage-filled Red Lantern, and Kyle – my favorite GL – is a Blue Lantern of Hope. It fits them perfectly!

In this issue Hal and Guy fight the Guardians who have now been transformed by the different Lantern Colors by Krona. In the end, it is revealed Krona plans on remaking Guy and Hal into new Guardians to run the Corps with him. Beautiful artwork and well written. I can’t really say anything bad about it.

This is the final issue of this volume of Green Lantern before the New 52 awful reboot. From what I understand the Green Lantern franchise was barely effected by the New 52. (I wonder if that has anything to do with Geoff Johns’s power at DC Comics? Actually I won’t wonder I am sure that is exactly the reason.) I love that Johns has Kyle use his drawing skills to save Carol! Kyle Rayner is the best Green Lantern and the most relatable. I still wish he was the star of this book but it is cool to see Johns respects the character and uses him well. The ending of this issue brought a smile to face as Hal Jordan’s ring is taken away and he is dismissed as a Green Lantern for killing Krona. Good, he should be. (I know this doesn’t last but I wish it did.)
