Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #12

"Bottled Light" comes to a close with Hal Jordan (yah!) and Kyle Rayner (ugh!) showing up in time to help the freed Green Lantern Corps and Sinestro Corps fight their jailers Larfleeze and Brainiac. The arc finale has plenty of action as well as some shock for Guy Gardner and the gang at the arrival of their old friends.

Guy isn't the only one surprised by events as both Corps ability to work together seems to suggest a brave new world for the Corps working together. It's an unexpected move for DC to make, having the two warring factions come together, but it certainly helps get Green Lantern comics back to their original premise of space cops patrolling the universe and protecting worlds from all kind of threats (rather than getting mired in a never-ending ring-slinging war). I'll be very curious to see where things go from here.
