Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #4The comic’s title character is mostly absent in the latest issue as following Hal Jordan‘s capture at the hands of several members of the Sinestro Corps the fate of the most recognized Green Lantern is questionable going into next month’s issue. Unable to confront his former pupil turned nemesis, Sinestro makes due with introducing the captured Guy Gardner to the Fear Engine which helps power his Corps.

With Jordan missing in action and unconscious in the only panel in which he appears (in a sequence that needs some explanation – seriously, WTF is going on?), Guy gets a little more coverage while the end of the issue also suggests that John Stewart and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps have grown tired of licking their wounds in hiding and are prepared to search for their missing GL and face whatever the universe has in store for them.

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #3

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #3As Guy Gardner searches for information about the current state of the universe for the returned Green Lantern Corps, Hal Jordan battles and increasing number of Yellow Lanterns who Sinestro dispatches to take down his former pupil. Eventually the odds become too great likely leading to a confrontation between the pair in next month’s issue.

Heavy on action and mostly centered around Hal Jordan, the issue continues to paint the known universe under Sinestro’s rule as a dark place indeed. With Jordan captured and the other Lanterns still unaware about just what has transpired in their absence I’m curious to see if the focus of the next issue will switch more to Guy Gardner and his own solo adventuring or stick with Jordan as the main protaganist and he’s taken back to Warworld for another confrontation with his arch-enemy.

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #2

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #2Hal Jordan‘s search for answers about the missing Green Lantern Corps leads him into contact with a pair of Yellow Lanterns. News that a Green Lantern has survived, and that that Lantern is his former pupil, doesn’t sit well with Sinestro. Despite his bravado, news that his arch-nemesis is still alive makes his absolute control of the universe suddenly appear not quite as secure.

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #2 also begins to showcase the remaining Green Lantern Corps members. Small in number, and unable to recruit new ring-slingers, the Green Lanterns have returned. Unsure of the status quo, John Stewart sends a lone Green Lantern to investigate: Guy Gardner.

Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps: Rebirth #1Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps: Rebirth #1 is a transitionary comic to move the character of Hal Jordan from roaming nomad with a glove back to the DCU’s most prominent Green Lantern. Finishing up Hal’s storyline using Krona‘s glove, the comic features Jordan far from the remains of Oa where Sinestro and his Corps now rule. On a dead world in Space Sector 563, Jordan performs a Herculean task by using Krona’s glove to forge the impossible: a new ring.

By the end of the issue Hal Jordan is out of the trench coat and back to basics in the trademark Green Lantern costume. And he’s got plenty on his plate with searching for an entire Corps which has gone missing. Far from Earth, it looks like this Green Lantern title will let its hero explore all there is to see in the cosmos.
