Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22

When the largest vault in the entire universe, an entire planet built for the security of countless treasures, comes under attack the first real test of the new alliance between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps begins. Partnered up with a member of the other corps, and led into battle by Hal Jordan, the response proves to be a tremendous success. However, the leader of the criminals believes he can destroy the hard-won piece between the two groups.

Filled with action, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22 proves to e quite enjoyable seeing the two corps work together. Here's hoping the villain's threat doesn't destroy an interesting new direction for the characters. There are a couple of smaller plot threads here worth noting. The first involves the future of Soranik Natu and the worst Green Lantern ever, who before their relationship even starts is trying to pressure her to make a major change. The second is the sudden loss of focus by Tomar-Tu which proves to be the only issue with the corps' response. As to what may have caused the issue, what Sora's response will be, and truth behind the bombshell the villain drops to John Stewart, we'll just have to wait and see. Worth a look.
