Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #10

You just can't keep a good man down. Hal Jordan's latest death doesn't stop the Green Lantern for long (even if his return does mean an appearance by my least-favorite Green Lantern). With the help of Kyle Rayner, the pair of remaining Guardians of the Universe help Hal find his way home and out of the Emerald Space where he's greeted by long-lost friends such as Tomar-Re and Katma Tui. I've been blissfully happy that the comic has had no Kyle in it so far, but the new White Lantern is put to good use here helping Hal find his way back to life through the ring he forged. It's a good thing he's back, because the rest of the Corps is in dire need of his help. The rest of the issue deals with the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps bickering while trying (and failing) to break out of Brainiac's containment. I'm in favor of DC returning Braniac to the the Silver Age version of the character, and the issue offers an intriguing twist on who the Collector of Worlds is working for. Worth a look. [DC, $2.99]
