Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #49

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #49 continues the war between the Green Lantern Corps and their various allies versus the Darkstars. In a coordinated assault, Hal Jordan and Hector Hammond attack the Controllers, disrupting the inter-connectivity of the Darkstars, giving their allies a fighting chance.

Still greatly outnumbered, that doesn't stop John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Zod, and the rest of the alliance from giving their all. Meanwhile, this brings Hal Jordan face-to-face with Tomar Tu setting up the extra-sized fiftieth issue showdown between the two characters and their respective armies.

Given the number of wild cards on their side, there could be some unexpected surprises in the next issue from Hammond, Zod, or any number of other characters, but here things go according to John Stewart's plan which gives the Corps a fighting shot (which is all they can ask for). Those on the front lines get a bit short changed in this issue, but I'm guessing the larger Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #50 will find a way to allow each character to shine. Worth a look.
