Synopsis

The Guardians bring Hal Jordans body to Oa after he appears to be killed in a battle with Dr. Polaris, while using his rings power reserve to save Tom Kalmaku.

Notes

Story continued in Green Lantern #47. The power rings have a reserve of power that the wearer cannot usually use; this is what usually protects him from dying. The Guardians uncharacteristically cry in this story. Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics (April 2007).
