In GL #59, things get tougher for Hal Jordan as some of the teaser lines imply from DC Universe. The issue was written by Geoff Johns with art and cover by Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy. There is also a 1:10 Variant cover by Gene Ha.
BRIGHTEST DAY blazes on as the New Guardians seeking the Indigo Entity are shocked to discover a sedated Black Hand. Can Hal Jordan trust the Indigo Tribe to house the herald of Nekron?
So much going on in this issue – and all of it makes it impossible to put down. Here’s a sampling: Hal Jordan on watch? The Flash and Green Lantern not seeing eye-to-eye? Oh, and did you really think you’d seen the last of him?
For movie fans, the biggest part of this issue is a full page exclusive look of Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) for Green Lantern coming out next year. Many thanks to user RodSVilaca for providing the scan and heads up on this. Along with a quick introduction to Hammond, producer Donald De Line talks about the intensity with which Peter Sarsgaard brought to the role and that "Hector Hammond has become a formidable and very real force for fear".
