So, apparently the Guardians of the Universe, that lame group of little blue men, has decided to sabotage their entire Green Lantern Corps structure for reasons not yet revealed. The main way they’re doing so is to allow the Alpha Lanterns to wield dictatorial authority over the rest of the Corps, and encouraging all kinds of extreme behavior by them and others. This is essentially how GL John Stewart has been put on trial for murder, and why Guy Gardner and a few other friends are forced to rescue him with major force. The rescue attempt is a grand ride through the innards of Oa, and there’s plenty of explosive action as Guy uses some old remnants of Guardian history to help him out. But is the rescue worth what it unleashes? Good stuff from writer Peter Tomasi in these issues, as it’s as much about the characters relationships and loyalties as about the fighting.
The art by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna continues to be excellent.
