So, early 90s Green Lantern? At times, amazing. Other times, bat guano crazy. This collection can be somewhat separated in half. The first half was forgettable.

After reading several anthology tells about the GL Corps this brought things back to a good coherent storyline which veers nicely from character exposition, through hopeless plight, to salvation. It borders on the epic.

There are several nice ambiguities - in particular the relationship between the three human Green Lanterns.

Thoroughly recommended.
