It sounds like some strange new sitcom: Everybody Hates Hal.
Air Force pilot Hal Jordan, A.K.A. Earth’s Green Lantern, finds himself in a world of trouble when he violates Russian airspace in search of a comrade’s downed jet.
Not only does he run afoul of the terrorist group that shot his friend down, but also the armoured Rocket Red Brigade is hot on his heels, as are the UN-backed super-team, the Global Guardians.
Making matters worse are a procession of alien bounty hunters who appear looking to collect a rather substantial price on his head.
When his fellow Justice League members arrive amidst all this chaos and carnage Hal thinks he’s got it made. But are his friends there to help him or aid in his arrest?
And, as usual with any book written by the talented Geoff Johns, there are subplots galore, including a huge one brewing with one simple question: What is the Sinestro Corps?
Johns and artists Ivan Reis and Daniel Acuña deliver another instant classic.
