Green Lanterns #24

While filled with appearances by several other Green Lanterns, the focus of Green Lanterns #24 remains on Earth's two newest ring slingers with Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz completing their training and earning full status as Green Lanterns. For Baz this means putting up with Kyle Rayner, a pretty awful thought (especially when he makes an endless supply of duplicates of himself - the horror!). For Jessica this means besting Guy Gardner which, if your name isn't Batman, can be a challenge.

Not that there was any doubt, but both Lanterns prove themselves capable and, after a short graduation ceremony, will head back to Earth with the approval of the Green Lantern Corps.

The issue's B-story continues foreshadowing trouble for the Corps with the the machinations of Volthoom (who the rest of the Guardians of the Universe are currently unaware is living in the body of Rami) who hopes to find the original rings for his own nefarious purposes (to rule them all? heh), and restore the power he had before the Corps existence. Worth a look.
