Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #39

A severely-injured Kyle, only held together by the power in Hal Jordan's ring, has made it back to Oa with news of Hal's capture by Zod. While the Guardians hesitate to come to any rash response, Guy Gardner forms his own team and sets out with the cavalry to the planet Jekuul to lay some GL smack down on Zod and his family.

While we don't get much of Hal this issue, other than Zod threatening him, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #39 does continue to focus on his ring. Forged from his own will, the ring not only is strong enough to keep Kyle alive, conscious, and ready for action, but it also adds some of Hal's cockiness and personality quirks to Earth shittiest Green Lantern. (Sadly, these don't make Kyle that much more tolerable).

In terms of the larger picture, issue #39 is mostly set-up as it is primarily focused on laying the foundation for what is likely to be a far more-action oriented issue with Zod squaring off against the Laterns as this one comes to a close. Worth a look.
