The best part of this book aren't the Hal parts. Its actually the side stories where Guy Gardner is searching out a particular yellow lantern, Akrillo, to fight mano y mano and John Stewart being tasked with combining forces with the yellow lanterns and feeling that he is not a good leader.
This particular issue wasn't great but it is a very typical part 2 set up story for the remainder of the arc and does keep your interest. And as always the artwork is beautiful!!
