Last we saw Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner, they made the unprecedented decision to remove their rings in the midst of battle. In part four of the epic War of Green Lanterns, the duo reunite with John Stewart and Kyle Rayner to stop the evil forces consuming their fellow Corps members. Their strategy will not only put their lives at stake, but will also go down as one of the riskiest acts committed in the Corps’ history.
When I was recently handed the editorial reins to GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS and GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS, it felt admittedly daunting. I was coming on board just as all three titles raced into the massive crossover story, “War of the Green Lanterns.” It was an intimidating prospect.
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason pull out all the stops for GREEN LANTERN CORPS #40, as BLACKEST NIGHT continues and the battle on Oa rages on. The honored, fallen Corps members and the recently deceased Sciencell convicts are now bloodthirsty Black Lanterns -- and they won't rest until the bloody hearts and minds of the GLs are literally in their hands. Can John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner stop the Blackest Night from engulfing Sector Zero? We're not sure, honestly. But these three pages should get you stoked.
