Green Lanterns #8

Losing a renegade Guardian of the Universe on Halloween night he has in his possession a power ring anyone is capable enough to command isn't the best way to start the holiday for Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz. And if that wasn't enough, Earth's two rookie Green Lanterns aren't the only ones on the lookout for Guardian Rami and the Phantom Ring.

Green Lanterns #8 is a fun Halloween-themed issue featuring Simon's family, trick-or-treaters, and a pair of Dominators on Earth in hopes to get their hands on the Phantom Ring. Dominators aren't my favorite alien threat, but they actually turn out to be just the kind of creepy-looking pair of villains for a proper Halloween comic.

While the issue does give us a bit Rami's backstory and the history of the Phantom Ring, the main focus here is holiday shenanigans and the Lanterns tracking down the runaway Guardian. Now that they've found him, and taken the ring under their protection, Simon and Jessica have a new responsibility to live up to. Worth a look.
