Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #11
Issues like this are what sold me on Peter Tomasi's return to Green Lantern Corps in September. He writes Guy Gardner better than anyone else. Guy is a weird mix of a hero and a thug, but he does the right thing, and Tomasi gets that. You might not want to hang out with him, but he gets the job done.
This little done-in-one doesn't tie into any greater GL story, it is just a showcase to see Guy settle Lantern-type problems in his own way. Sure, he loses his ring and almost dies, but we know that Guy can handle it. Just a fun issue.
Bernard Chang's art looks great. The GL books haven't gone over the greater DCU "house" style as much as some other books, so Chang's work looks perfect.
