New Guardians #8

Writer: Tony Bedard
Artist: Tyler Kirkham

A spotlight issue on Arkillo reunites Tony Bedard and Tyler Kirkham with one of their creations from the old continuity: the Weaponer of Qward. The story brings these two unlikely characters together in the aftermath of the Sinestro Corps' disbanding to give the yellow lanterns a fresh new start. Arkillo's devotion to the corps of fear and the Weaponer's contempt for Sinestro are a great combination to fuel this rebirth. Bedard's labor in this title has not been easy, but he has done a great job reconciling everything that happens in the other Lantern titles with the story he is telling; case in point the aforementioned dissolution of the Sinestro Corps, Bleez's own developments in Ysmault, and now Munk's role in "The Secret of the Indigo Tribe." As always, Tyler Kirkham's pencils are welcoming and fun, and look only better with Batt's inks and Ruffino's colors.
