How far would you go for justice?

Meanwhile, Green Lantern and company wrestle with the idea of torturing villains for information in order to save lives. We've got a few of Mauro's lovely painted pages right here to whet your appetite.

Much of today has been devoted to wrapping up WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #8, which is a pretty crazy issue. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods are introducing the Thanagarians to the series, and where the Thanagarians go, can bloody skirmishes be far to follow? One thing that’s complicated matters on this issue is Pete’s shoulder injury (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to give the opposing team info on our players’ injuries!).
Happy Monday, Source gang. I'm back in the office, a little warmer and rested from a few days in sunny SoFla. Yes, that's how we refer to it. Moving on.
