Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #18

Life for the combined forces of the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps continues to get off to a rock start on Oa during the building of a new Yellow Power Battery as disagreements between the two groups come to blows. The responsibility for restoring order, and acting as the voice of reason, falls to Guy Gardner who manages to keep the peace... this time.

Elsewhere, in Space Sector 563, the team of Space Ape and Gorrin-Sunn get into some trouble of their own while discovering an odd anomoly on what should be a deserted chunk of space. Beginning the latest arc, the pair's disappearance will force John Stewart to send his two most trusted Lanterns to investigate: Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner (does this mean this pair is are the only Green Lanterns who don't get a yellow-ringed partner?). Can't Hal trade Kyle in for Space Ape (or, you know, pretty much anyone else?).

The final page of the comic foreshadows just how dire a threat the Corps is facing as Rip Hunter makes his first appearance since Rebirth (and apparently isn't known by any of the Green Lanterns in the reconstructed DCU). For fans.

[DC, $2.99]
