Green Lantern #100 brings together then-new GL Kyle Rayner and then-deceased GL Hal Jordan by sending Kyle roughly a decade into the past, to the Green Lantern Corps’ glory days. Kyle, his era’s sole and randomly chosen GL, serves as the reader’s viewpoint into this wondrous sci-fi world of fearless heroes as the Corps battles Sinestro at his old-school villainous best.
I started reading comics early enough that Hal was and is “my” Green Lantern, but Kyle was the reigning GL throughout my adolescence. Ron Marz wrote a lot of good Kyle stories, but seeing Hal back in action was always a treat. So this was the perfect way to celebrate the 100-issue milestone and show us how fun comics can be.
And the cliffhanger’s even better.
