GOOD THING: It's been a while since we've gotten a story that focused on Kyle Rayner to the degree that this one does and it's been even longer since we've seen him being depicted as the badass he should be.
BAD THING: I'm not too crazy about Soranik Natu - Kyle's girlfriend and fellow Green Lantern - being reduced to the role of the hostage and bargaining chip. Granting that The Weaponeer (who is a great new villain idea, incidentally) is powerful enough to hold an experienced Lantern like Kyle at bay, it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Hopefully she'll prove herself to be a little less easily dealt with in the next issue.
The Final Verdict: One of the best Kyle Rayner stories in recent memory even before a memorable last page. The only downside is that it looks like Soranik has been marginalized, being turned into the typical hostage girlfriend for the sake of the plot.
