Green Lantern Corps #4

Yup, that's the Martian Manhunter!  But we'll get there in a minute.  "Prisoners of War" by Peter J. Tomasi follows John Stewart and his squad as they are imprisoned by the beings known as the Keepers after last issue's cliffhanger, and their origin has its roots in an old plot device familiar to Green Lantern followers; it will be interesting to see where this is going.  The issue also takes a quick look at some of the lanterns who were able to escape from Xabas; Hannu, Isamot, and Sheriff express very distinct emotions resulting from their recent experience, and I hope we keep seeing more of that.  Now going back to J'onn J'onnz, his presence was unexpected, but well received, especially because it introduces an element of conflict between he and the Corps that I had never considered.  I don't follow Stormwatch, but it looks like we might see a crossover in the future.
