My favorite Green Lantern stories are the ones where the characters are allowed a moment to breathe between impossible battles. Seeing their reactions to previous events, their interactions with each other, and expanding on the world they live in are what I read these comics for. Characterization and world-building, in other words.
That's what this one is. It's a pretty simple story, with a lot of impact: Guy gets berated (yet again) by the Guardians, John deals with the death of a fellow Lantern. The writing is quite good, and it's a pretty touching story, showing that these characters do have feelings and flaws.
