Guy gardner vs Hal Jordan

 Summary and scans here
 
The Good

Rivalry- This issue is almost run entirely on the rivalry of Hal and Guy and it works perfectly. These guys have a history of hating each other and clashing longer than most superheroes have career so it was great to see this highlighted. Guy views Hal as the reason he’s not the greatest Green Lantern while Hal thinks of Guy as just another hot head. I enjoyed this allot!

Art- The art was adequate.

Cover- A painted cover illustrating Guy choking the life out of Hal? Love it!

Action- Of all the issue in the Green Lantern War thus far this one had the best fight scenes.

The Bad

Alternate cover- Guy being beat up by Hal could have been a great cover but it looks like an unused panel from the interiors. Not cool!

Colors- The art was murky and nowhere as good as the other Green Lantern books. The colors fell flat with the lack of even a single dynamic panel.

The Ugly

3.5/5

    Don'T Tell Me That's Supposed To Be the Big Fight 0

    The fight between Guy Gardner and Hal Jordan that Emerald Warriors has been hyping from day one explodes here, and does it live up to that hype? No, it really does not. It is a solid enough third chapter of War of the Green Lanterns, but the mind control premise and some poor dialogue from Peter Tomasi hold this issue down.  As far as plot progress goes, this issue is really just Guy and Hal coming together and comparing notes with their fight serving as an action piece to pad the issue out. It ...
