And Then I Read: HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #11

Two storylines: the main group of GLs and some Yellow Lanterns are stuck inside a Brainiac collection bottle, shrunk down to miniature size. The bottle, the rest of the collection, and Brainiac himself are all in the hands and under the control of Larfleeze, the Orange Lantern of Avarice, on his home base of Okaara in the Vegan star system, technically outside the purview of the GL Corps. Then there’s Hal Jordan, recently brought back from apparent ghost status by Kyle Rayner and the two remaining original Guardians of the Galaxy, Ganthet and Sayd. These four return to Mogo, the Corps headquarters, but find it otherwise empty.

Things I like about this storyline: Brainiac and Larfleeze as the ultimate collectors of everything. John Stewart’s escape plan. Hal and Kyle returning to Mogo.

Things I didn’t like: the John Stewart plan was too transparent and predictable. How did Larfleeze fall for it?
