Things start out pretty bleak at the beginning of 'Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp Vol. 2: Bottled Light' by Robert Venditti. Sure, Sinestro is gone and the Corps has found each other, but the cost has been pretty great.
In the opening, a lone ring flies through space pronouncing that Hal Jordan is dead. Meanwhile the Corps is trying to get operations together and doesn't know that Hal is gone. They end up answering a distress call on Tomar Tu's world and end up trapped by....well, you'll just have to read it to find out. There are twists and turns aplenty in this volume. If you think Hal Jordan is gone for good, you don't read a lot of comics.
There are a couple main stories, and a nice backup story that takes place years later. I like John Stewart as the leader. I like the uneasy truce they have to strike to solve the problem. There are some good cameos that I won't discuss.
The art and story are pretty good. I look forward to seeing where this title heads next.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
