The conflict between the revived Darkstars and the Green Lantern Corps. has been building for the last several issues of HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS. While neither side has struck a blow — yet — their philosophies lash out. The Darkstars execute all murderers while the Lanterns keep them imprisoned. However, HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46 moves philosophies to the side. Instead, the story shifts into the personal, showing the effect this conflict has had and how it affects one of the Corps.’s most legendary members. To show readers just what they’re in for, ComicVerse presents an exclusive preview of HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46!

What to Expect In HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46 Part One

Issue #45 saw Hal Jordan recruit Hector Hammond to help against the Darkstars while Guy Gardner was inducted into the Darkstars. I reviewed that issue and felt that Gardner’s induction was rushed. However, this issue utilizes the induction effectively by opening in front of a bar with an old man staring at it in the rain.

The man stares at the bar and his hands while reciting a creed often used in Alcoholics Anonymous; “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” A flashback reveals just who this man is as he recalls drunkenly beating a young, red-haired boy.

The man is Roland Gardner, father of Guy. Far from being the angry, drunken man his son remembers, Roland instead seems ashamed and almost fearful of drinking. He refuses an invitation to drink from old friends. His memories of beating Guy wash over him. This man is far removed from who he once was. However, an attack from above hints that someone remembers who he was and what he did. Now they are going to do something about it.

Alliances Abound in HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #45

Meanwhile…

Hal Jordan arrives at a dead, empty planet with Hector Hammond. Hal wants to see the full limits of Hammond’s powers, but without putting anyone in danger. The dead planet is a safe place to unleash their full potential. Hammond, at first, appears fascinated just by the idea of being in space. However, when he finally speaks his mind, his answers are still unnerving. Hammond wants to be a hero, but with his twisted mind, “hero” has a darker definition.

The creative team for HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46 consists of writer Robert Venditti, artist Clayton Henry, colorist Pete Pantazis, and letterer David Sharpe.

HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #46 hits shelves on June 13th. Until then check out ComicsVerse’s exclusive preview below!
