Winick continues to make me fall in love with Kyle Ranyer This collection features GL 156 and 158 161 No explanation is given for the omission of GL 157.In this chapter of Kyle Rayner s life he s left Earth because he s lost hope in humanity due to a recent beating of a friend During this self imposed exile, John Stewart is left to fill the green boots back in sector 2814.Strengths Judd Winick s dialogue, especially between GL and Jade Winick writes dialogue within a couple in a highly believable way that demonstrates nuances in their characterization Also, Winick helped reshape the GL universe bit by bit in this volume re introducing the Living Planet Mogo, Bring the Zamerons back to OZ, and giving John Stewart his legs back.Dale Ealesham s art is also clean and mostly consistent My only quaff is that he and or the DC editor s evidently forgot that GL s hand is broken on p.107 Even if it was healed upon Ganthet s return on p.110, what about those 3 pages in between Also, the extra content about the power rings, the three page timeline, and the family tree were cool Maybe even the bes
