In this conclusion of the “Godkillers” story, Kyle Rayner and his crew of Guardians and a Star Sapphire are trying to contain a fierce battle between the goddess X’Hal (formerly of the Vegan star system) and a group called the Godkillers, out to destroy her. The battle threatens to destroy all life on the planet they’re on, and neither side seems concerned about that. Lots of cosmic energy blasts and furious speeches here, but an effective story as well. The art and writing are both quite good. The collateral damage, when it comes, is emotionally effective, and Kyle himself is left in a damaged state with some doubt as to what kind of power he actually wields at this point. Nicely done.
