Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps – Bottled Light | Comics

Hal Jordan is lost after Warworld is destroyed and Green Lantern Corps teams up with Sinestro Corps to watch over.

While Hal Jordan was fighting to overthrow the tyrannical Sinestro and totally wrecked his Warworld before vanishing into beyond, the Green Lantern Corps had disappeared and came back. Earlier, Guy Gardner was captured by Yellow Lanterns but former Corps member and Sinestro's defiant daughter Soranik Natu helped him out in time.

When John Stewart led his entire Corps onto Sector 0, he caught a brief glimpse of that destruction and was surprised to see Gardner with Sinestro Corps, who were currently following the lead of Soranik. As she updates them about what Jordan did back there, Salakk picks up an emergency on Tomar-Tu's homeworld Xudar.

Leaving everyone else on living planet Mogo, Stewart takes the rest of the Corps to the location to find it under attack by Starro. John and his colleagues try their best to restrain the Star Conqueror and just when they were feeling outnumbered, Soranik led her Yellow Lantern Corps to help but then it immediately disappears from there.

Members of both Corps were having a hard time dealing with the locals controlled by Starro and suddenly discovered themselves trapped within an energy barrier. Attempts of breaking it remain unsuccessful so far and on top of that, all Corpsmen are now suddenly being attacked by a large group of mind-controlled Xudarians.

Taking care of the crowd, Stewart realizes after some inspection that they all are miniaturized and captured by Brainiac 2.0. It is finally revealed that Brainiac was actually working on behalf of Larfleeze, who found him among the junks of planet Okaara. Upon learning who their true captor was, John plans an escape tactics with Soranik.

On a hidden prison planet of Indigo Tribe at Sector 2814, Ganthet and Sayd finds Hal Jordan's lost ring that indicates end of their exile. They see the ring without its bearer and Sayd asserts it as a deception citing only a Guardian can create a ring of will. However, her husband is amused that it exists and that means Hal proved everyone wrong.

Jordan discovers himself stranded on Emerald Space, where he is greeted by Abin Sur and many other deceased members of the Green Lantern Corps. Since it is an everlasting sphere for departed Corps members, Sur states that Hal doesn't belong there yet and the exiled Guardians notice whatever life essence he had is dying quickly.

So, White Lantern Kyle Rayner is called in to rescue Hal from fading away in Emerald Space and bring back to the world of living to save the Corps. Together they were able to pull Jordan back to the world of living before he was getting lost forever.

Hal reunites with Ganthet, Sayd and Kyle with a new perspective at his destiny and learned that his fellow Corpsmen have returned a while ago. They all then head to living planet Mogo to see them all only to know that they all left earlier in response to an emergency but could not establish contact for lack of communication data.

Meanwhile, John Stewart and Soranik Natu starts a fight that eventually draw in every members of each Corps into pounding one another, causing Agent Orange to worry about losing his specimens and unwittingly setting them all free at once.

Picking up one of the renowned flagship of DC Comics, writer Robert Venditti (Damage – Out of Control, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps – Sinestro's Law) hailed brand-new monthly ongoing comic-book series Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps quite well for "DC Rebirth" from where it was left of by the end of "New 52" run.

Venditti was assisted by artists Ed Benes (Justice League of America – Sanctuary, Justice League of America – Second Coming), Ethan Van Sciver (The Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth) and Rafa Sandoval (Catwoman – Death of the Family, Catwoman – Gotham Underground) for issues #8-13 of second story arc of the series, "Bottled Light".

Trapped and Collected

Now that Sinestro is gone, his Corps follows Soranik Natu as their newest leader and she tries to atone for her father's wrongdoings by forming an alliance with Green Lantern Corps. They fight against celestial conqueror Starro side by side before fighting the combined threat of collector of worlds, Brainiac 2.0 and avatar of avarice, Larfleeze.

Venditti and his entire creative team continues their successful stint that was kick-started during Rebirth in 2017 and concluded to next story-arc "Quest for Hope", where Kyle Rayner and Hal Jordan will go looking for Saint Walker. Sandoval is showing some superior drawing skills so far to be a rising star of DC Comics if he is not already.
