Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #17

{This Review May Contain Spoilers}

Well, we can’t just have Green Lantern’s going around kicking Yellow Lantern ass all the time, now can we? No, we can’t. Every now and then we must take a step back from all of the action and ease ourselves down into the story—we have to allow our writers to set up the next big ‘thing,’ and in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #17, that’s exactly what writer Robert Venditti does. There are great things happening in this series.

So, what’s Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #17 about? From the publisher:

“QUEST FOR THE BLUE LANTERNS” finale! As both the torchbearer of the Green Lantern Corps and the White Lantern of life, Kyle Rayner’s proved he can wield the entire emotional spectrum. But when forced to choose, which ring will he don—and which Corps will he join for the oncoming threats facing all of time and space?

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #17The pace changes completely from Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #16 to Issue #17, and normally I would complain about such a drastic change, but at this point, a downshift is necessary. And thanks to this issue’s cover, it should come as no surprise to you exactly which ring Kyle Rayner decided to pick now that he is no longer the White Lantern.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #17Initially when I read the summary of this issue, I was saddened by thought that Kyle Rayner was no longer going to be the White Lantern, but now that I’ve read the issue, I am fine with the decision, and frankly, am glad to see Kyle Rayner back in a Green Lantern uniform, and am really excited to see where Robert Venditti takes us next.
