GOOD THING: Ed Benes is on art duties for most of the issue, proving that he can do more than just cheesecake.
BAD THING: Good as it is to finally see John for more than a page at a time - and getting a whole solo issue, no less - it is a bit jarring for me, as a fan who still thinks of John as the architect from the streets who showed Kyle Rayner the ropes, to see John being portrayed as an ex-Marine above all other aspects of his personality. I know more fans are probably familiar with that take on John thanks to the Justice League cartoon but it's still a bit weird for me.
The Final Verdict: A good solid issue, with a good story and good artwork in both of its' parts. The scenes of John Stewart as a Marine sharpshooter may not gel with your view of the character if you're of a certain age range but the scenes are good ones, though not for the weak-hearted or small children.
