Unlike the Green Lanterns who preceded him on Earth and throughout the galaxy, Kyle Rayner was given no training or guidance in the use of his power ring. In this new collection, Kyle decides to seek the guidance of the greatest heroes alive -- the Flash, Batman, and Wonder Woman -- only to find that he is already worthy of the name "hero."
Paperback, 197 pages
Published March 10th 1999 by DC Comics

Recommends it for: GL fans!
First off, I absolutely love the art by Paul Pelletier and Darryl Banks! Gorgeous Green Lantern constructs, perfect costumes, and excellent fight scenes. Fantastic work! The writing, even given the time, left a lot to be desired. Ron Marz, who I don't hate like other GL fans, makes some odd choices here. I like the idea of Kyle reaching out to other, established heroes looking for heroing advice and tips. I didn't like the hokey dialogue, subpar villains, or the entire Darkstars storyline. He al ...more

This was a good collection and an interesting expansion on the Kyle Rayner character. It read a bit like a classic "The Brave and the Bold" team-up book with appearances by Teen Titans, Flash, Batman & Robin, Sentinel (Alan Scott), Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, Adam Strange and the Darkstars (including John Stewart and Donna Troy).

Lo leí (y lo tengo, creo) en la edición de dos tomos de Editorial Vid. No recuerdo mucho de su contenido, pero sí que en su momento hizo que Kyle se convirtiera en mi Green Lantern favorito, puesto que aún hoy ocupa (aunque contra el John Stewart de la Liga Ilimitada saldría perdiendo).

Fun, though flawed. Donna Troy could have been written out or swapped with anyone else and it wouldn't have mattered. The team ups were fun but the Darkstar stuff was dull. I enjoyed seeing Kyle and Wally team up, but the rest was average 90s fair.
