Out of the four Green Lantern based series, that being the main story driven GL Hal Jordan/Sinestro title, the stand alone seres GL Corp. with Guy Gardner and John Stewart, and Red Lanterns doing their own thing...GL New Guardians is the most light-hearted and looser series of the four. Just Kyle Rayner and one of each member from the other light Spectrums coincidently banding together to solve a mystery of how and why each lantern ring were drawn to Kyle. It may not be a necessary series to read as part of the main story, but it is a fun series none the less and continues to do so.

GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS VOL.2: BEYOND HOPE collects issues #8-12 and BLUE BEETLE #9. After the ending in Green Lantern: New Guardians Vol. 1: The Ring Bearer (The New 52) (Green Lantern (Graphic Novels)), the group has a new mission of going after Larfleeze, but each member needs to recharge their rings before doing so and so split up. Arkillo finds out the truth what's become of Sinestro and his yellow lantern corps, Fatality looks into Invictus connections, and Saint Walker and his Blue Lanterns home world get invaded by the Reach, alien race of conquerors who use the Scarab powers like Blue Beetle. The blue lanterns have no allies to help while everyone else is away. Will Kyle's new group make it time or not?

As mentioned before, this series is all about big, colorful, flashy, action, and fun and this volume doesn't disappoint.

A mix of powerful emotions, light-hearted jesting and amazing insight into the personalities of the different Corps members; I love it! Twists and turns in the story keep you glued to every image and every word. Not as dark or epic as the Blackest Night or as impacting as the Brightest Day, but the New Guardians series offers something for everyone: action, intrigue, great writing, levity, intensity and sorrow. In Vol. 2 we see the destruction of a Corps, the challenges facing another entire Corps, the sadness of a Guardian, the power of love, the depravity and betrayal amongst even allies, and the sacrifice even an enslaved construct can make. Such a tangled web these lanterns weave...I can't wait to read more!

Format: Hardcover
Kyle Rayner aka Green Lantern and the other ring bearers of their respected Lantern sets were able to bargain their way to survival with the powerful angel, Invictus. He let them all live under a deal to kill the Orange Lantern, Larfleeze. The Lanterns are low on power and uneasy about it, but they leave to charge their rings anyway for the inevitable battle. -summary

Green Lantern: New Guardians has more in common with The Green Lantern Corps. title as its main focus is the action, in which that's what the first volume The Ring Bearer was really all about. This second volume Green Lantern - New Guardians Volume Two: Beyond Hope is more of the same thing. There's nothing thought provoking about this volume; it's straight up action with a touch of suspense, light character development and really nothing much. Its whole point is to deliver a quick pace ride. Written by Tony Bedard, New Guardians collects issues 8 - 12 and Blue Beetle 9.

This story really doesn't hold up on its own. One must be familiar with the previous volume since the main story premise was covered there, and although it's discussed in bits and pieces, it just doesn't deliver enough for an unfamiliar newbie to really care for the characters. The last volume began with each ring representing a Lantern set leaving its host to die either in space or in battle and seek out Green Lantern Kyle Rayner. This brought a second in command of each Lantern group in his face to take back the ring. This lead to the members forming a quick team to learn who called the rings, and later running an errand for Larfleeze that landed them in a losing battle against Invictus. This volume picks up with the Lanterns leaving their separate ways for the moment, and later planning to reorganize and confront Larfleeze.

Pretty much all the different colored lanterns come together to face an awesome opponent. Larfleeze is a sleezball as usual. The story and action are really strong in this comic where vol 1 kinda felt lacking in both

This book is awesome. The artwork and the story are compelling. I still want to know why Kyle is able to use all spectrums of light. I can't wait to read the next volume.

Title: Green Lantern: The New Guardians Vol 2: Beyond Hope (HC)
Publisher: DC
Writer: Tony Bedard
Artists: Tyler Kirkham, Marcio Takara, Tomas Giorello (pencils), Batt( inks), Nei Ruffino, Pete Pantazis, Hi-Fi, Nathan Eyring, Wes Hartman (colors), Tyler Kirkham, Batt & Nei Ruffino (covers)
Collects: Green Lantern: New Guardians #8-12, Blue Beetle #9
Price: $22.99

While not as good as the main Green Lantern title, New Guardians is still an enjoyable book that is used as a platform by Bedard to collect some of the most famous characters from the various colored light corps into one over-encompassing story. In this volume the most prominent members of the respective corps are searching for a set of missing power rings and trying to understand why their power batteries have been failing. The search takes them all over the known galaxy and ends in several climactic battles against such notables as Larfleeze, Invictus, and the alien fleet of The Reach. The story isn't quite as cohesive as I'd like, but it is what it is. There's a lot going on, here, and possibly too much to jam pack it all into one book, but it seems like the Green Lantern editorial staff are trying to bring together all of the various plot threads they have dangled over the past few years and bring them all together to tie them up.

Artwork on the book is - as usual - above par and some of the best you'll find on the store shelves. My one major issue with the art on this book is that Yellow Lantern Arkillo is colored with green skin in this book, while previous books have always colored him with grey skin. He also has a large, dangling tongue in this book, and he hasn't really had that too much in the past. Aside from these discrepancies, the art is very solid.
