Even though I have written them myself, I am not a big fan of sci-fi stories utilizing time. Oh sure, Kang is a big fave and there are several others in the DC corridor, but on the whole they are just not my thing.

Justin Jordan uses time as a commodity in an interesting way in Green Lantern: New Guardians #26 as our man Kyle works with an alien population that is creating a paradise of sorts on their homeworld but at a terrible cost to their future.

Along the way, Kyle explores many of the questions we would if such a conundrum were possible for us, and the Guardians do what I expected them to do: teach Kyle in certain areas even as he himself teaches them.

It is all quite cosmic, and quite marvelous.

I am getting used to Carol’s role in this book, and I think I am liking it. Quite a surprise! I am also liking the Guardians, and after Geoff Johns had us despising their forbearers for years that is not quite the easy thing it used to be 20 years or so ago.

Brad Walker and Geraldo Borges continue to amaze with their beautiful art and, as much as I love Hal Jordan, I continue to maintain New Guardians is THE best of the current Green Lantern lot. And Kyle is becoming a cosmic entity as interesting as the Silver Surfer, IMHO. (Although it may be that I would love Walter the Warthog if Walker were drawing it.)

All in all, another fine work by Jordan & Crew as Kyle continues to explore the outer reaches of the DCU … and continues to explore himself. Great read!
