This book is probably the most cosmic and the most fun we have in the entire Green Lantern franchise.

Since his arrival, writer Justin Jordan has made Green Lantern: New Guardians his own and separated it from the rest of the franchise so effectively that Kyle Rayner is a kind of Silver Surfer, wandering and exploring here in the DCU.

Along with Carol Ferris and the new Guardians, Kyle learns about the vast expanse of the rich New 52 universe. The Guardians teach him as they learn from him, with some subtext in the background indicating that something else is on the way. Something big!

But while the story is great -- even though a little light in the loafers for a religious allegory -- the real star this issue is the returning Brad Walker and his team of inkers and colorist.

I knew I missed Walker during his absence, but I did not know how much until this issue. The action and panels sequencing are superb, the pacing unbelievable and actually embellish the script, and the colors are bright, lively and bring every panel to life.

Kudos of a special nature to the cosmic palette of colorist Wil Quintana. Just gorgeous!

I often say that this book is the best of a lot for Green Lantern, but this is the issue that proves it!

Pick it up, new reader or old. You won't be disappointed.
