Some thoughts about Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps #19
Rip Hunter has traveled to the past to warn everyone about someone who is coming to destroy the peace between the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps, and that person might be close to succeed.
WOW! Several things happened during this issue.
Robert Venditti delivers a new chapter where he reveals why Rip Hunter went back to the past. This particular story is connected to the running plot-point that has been developed since the beginning of this series, the relationship between both Corps and how they're going to end in the future. The character work continues to be pretty solid with several scenes were the cast depict their personalities perfectly including some charming moments like the dynamic between Kyle and Soranik.
That's not the best part though since this issue has a surprising amount of content that really makes you feel like you got your money worth. Several segments and plot-points are being developed and could have easily took place in two full issues in other books.
V. Ken Marion handles the artwork and is pretty solid with an energetic style that creates good expressions for the characters and intense action scenes.
Good stuff, excited for the next one.
