Green Lantern #8

For a storyline entitled "The Secret of the Indigo Tribe" it's sure seems like the comic would rather tease us then give us any real answers as to who the Indigo Tribe really is or explain their connection to Abin Sur.

Although the story arc continues to be intentionally vague in order to draw it out over more comics than necessary, it does have some moments including (finally!) showcasing Hal Jordan's ingenuity in how he finds away to recharge his ring without a power battery.

Hal's search for Sinestro leads him into the Indigo Tribe's sacred temple where he finds a giant statue of Abin Sur as well as altered Sinestro, who is now part of the tribe.

After months of treating him as little more than a guy who never bothered to learn what his ring could really do, writer Geoff Johns finally showcases Hal Jordan and his ability to make it through several Indigo Lanterns with only a partially charged ring. Worth a look.
