John Stewart has been accused of murdering a fellow Green Lantern. If you’ve been reading this title a while, this wouldn’t surprise you. We saw it happen, and why, and the reasons justified the act. Now, though, the Alpha Lanterns have come to collect John for a trial before the Guardians. John’s friends put up a fight, but John himself is willing to submit, and so it eventually transpires. Meanwhile, we catch the Guardians talking among themselves, and it’s clear they plan to wreak plenty of havoc in the Corps, as they have so often before, but this time it appears to be quite intentional! The trial takes up the last third of the book, and it’s well handled by writer Peter Tomasi.
The art by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna is quite good, and they manage to keep things interesting even in this issue, which has lots of talking and not so much action.
