Justin Jordan spins a star-spangled saga for Kyle Rayner that is as cosmic as you can get.

Relic has arrived in the New 52 and the White Lantern is the universe's first offense against him. But can even the might of the Templar Guardians, Star Sapphire Carol Ferris and Kyle stop this survivor of another universe?

Jordan tells a great tale with hints of Relic's past, and perhaps a nasty secret about "the lights" from before the Big Bang.

Through Kyle's humanity, Relic discovers the many secrets of the power rings and the Green Lantern Corps, although he is shocked by the white light of Rayner.

Outside an artificial husk in which Relic has “trapped” Kyle, the Guardians rush to save aliens Relic has forced out of their ships and work with new ally Exeterto save Kyle's life.

Fan favorite cosmic artist Brad Walker does absolutely fantastic work here, backed by his inker Andrew Hennessy and colorist Will Quintana. Even letterer Dave Sharpe adds his two cents in with Relic's unique speech pattern.

Of all the new Green Lantern creator changes, this book has benefited the most. I love its cosmic scope and focus on alien worlds and what is beyond Oa. I hope "the quest" began in #21 does not wind down after Relic leaves.

If you're looking for one book this month, cosmic fans, Green Lantern: New Guardians #22 is it!
