Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #34

The latest arc of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps has reintroduced the characters known as the Controllers, a faction that split off from the race that would become the Guardians of the Universe. Unlike their more peaceful brethren, who created the Green Lantern Corps to keep order in the universe, the Controllers have a more proactive stance to destroy all evil in the universe rather than simply prevent it. Abducting the remaining Guardians, the Controllers hope to use their shared genetic heritage to usher in a new age of their vision for the universe (even if it means killing of the last of the Guardians to do so).

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #34 is broken into basically two parts. Half the comic features the Controllers and the captive Guardians. The other half focuses on the primary Green Lanterns and their search for clues to where the Controllers have taken the Guardians and for what purpose. There's quite a bit of threatening, and lots of shots of the Lanterns flying around, but for now the villains' actions continue unabated. Worth a look.
