Comic Book Quote of the Month:

Green Lantern Quarzz Teranh lies dying after his single-handed battle with a black hole. The Guardians have told him that even if he survives he will be unable to continue as a Green Lantern.
Quarzz Teranh: "G-guardians…I hurt…! It s-shall soon…be over…"
Xylpth: "Ghr'll…Lies Quarzz there!"
Ghr'll: "Aye Xylpth…his aura still glows! Quarzz…brother!"
Quarzz Teranh: "I-I yet live, friend Ghr'll"
Xylpth: "Live yet still, brother. Guardians heal perhaps."
Quarzz Teranh: "No, good Xylpth! L-leave me…here…where I-I lie. I-I…am among…t-the s-stars, my friends. Leave m-m…"
