The Guardians have kept yet another secret from their beloved Corps. Before they entrusted each Lantern with the safety of their own batteries, the Keepers were the ones who protected all of them! The residual power eventually intertwined with the very fabric of their world and it's inhabitants, causing them to become quite dependent upon the batteries to sustain any form of life. Once the Guardians decided to remove the batteries from the planet Urak, their world withered into a shadow of what it once was. Now on the brink of oblivion, the Keepers lash out against the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians themselves. They will stop at nothing to regain what they see as rightfully theirs, and the Corps will be the first to fall!

The Keepers have been decimating the Corps for the past few issues, using torture and death to pry information regarding Oa from them. Now, finally, Guy Gardner has amassed a small group of warriors that might be able to save their lost friends, but at what cost will freedom come? 

Peter J. Tomasi has been churning out some amazing stories for the past six issues. Full of betrayal, hatred, insane action and revelations, Green Lantern Corps has been the best of the "Lantern" books each month! But this week has been the best yet! The conclusion of the Keepers arc is chock full of battle sequences that will assault the senses! Page after page of brutality and strategy, this one might be a quick read -- but it will blow you away! Pasarin has been working overtime creating splash pages that encompass every inch of the page! Blades, rings, bullets, body armor -- everything stands out, creating a chaotic flow that entrenches you within the battle! You will return again and again to his page layouts, scouring the images for all the details you may have missed before. Perfection at it's finest!

I really can't say enough about this book. If you ever wanted an adrenaline ride that will make you wish you could throw on a ring and join the fight -- this is it! It's time the Corps kicked a little a$$ of their own! But don't take my word for it, the cover says it all -- Lock and Load!
