Some thoughts about Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps #16
Guy Gardner has decided to take on Arkillo by himself which might be a suicide mission to others but they don't know the kind of pain Guy can endure.
As far as character-centric issues go, this one was pretty successful.
Robert Venditti delivers a new chapter mostly focused on Guy and what made him the man he is now. The exploration of his past is pretty well-done by referencing his classic background like his drunk and abusive father in a way that makes sense and plays into his current fight with Arkillo which makes every scene in this battle quite engaging to see.
The rest of the cast also receive several interesting moments while progressing the plot about the Green Lantern Corps increasing their influence across the universe which most certainly will play a bigger role in the future.
Oh, and that last page is a pretty good cliffhanger.
Rafa Sandoval is in charge of the pencils and his work is quite vibrant by making every moment, particularly the action scenes, really exciting to watch.
Quite enjoyable, this book refuses to disappoint.
