Guy Gardner, Arisia, and Kilowog team up for a secret mission, but there's a few stops they have to make first.
This is the Green Lantern Corps book! No offense to the current series, but it has lost its stride. This book has everything I want from a GLC book: Guy Gardner, Kilowog, and lantern corps members going on missions, no matter how small. It must be incredibly hard to write a Green Lantern book at the moment considering, over the past 6 years, the corps has dealt with Hal coming back, Sinestro forming his own corps, the Light Wars, and the Blackest Night event. It must be hard to tell a compelling story after all of that and I give Peter Tomasi tons of credit for putting a smaller scale story together and making it great. I love the fact that each member of this team has their own smaller agenda, yet they all fight for the same cause. This is a very solid book, writing and art.
A new villain is introduced, and it's hard for me, as a huge Green Lantern fan, to get excited because, as I said before, with all these grandiose stories that have happened over the past few years, it's hard to find a threat on that level. This villain, named Zardor, wants to destroy the Green Lantern Corps, much like every other villain. It's the only thing I had a problem with during this book, everything else was amazing.
The Verdict - 4.5/5
This book is a lot more personal to three of the Corps members more than anything else, which is something the Green Lantern books needs a little more of to remain fresh. There's a great scene where a new recruit talks to Kilowog about joining the GLC and Kilowog goes off on him about death and fighting, and it's little things like that, which we get a lot of, that make this book so much more personal to the individual characters, and flat-out great. Green Lantern fans, you need this book. It's highly recommend!
