I thought that was a silly moment in comics history. Hal is transformed into a skeleton and he acts like he spilled mustard on his tie.

What the...? I love the fact that although reduced to a skeleton, Hal is STILL protecting his secret identity by retaining his mask. We don't want to confuse him with the OTHER skeletons.

Also, shouldn't he have a few more ribs?

So the Green Lantern Corpse isn't a new idea? :-)

Adam: That whole run was pretty silly. I keep wondering why Brad Meltzer loves it so much.

Sally: It's a well known fact that new Green Lanterns have ritualistic surgery, conducted by the Guardians in a secret location somewhere on Mogo's surface, to remove their last bottom two ribs.

Jeez, get with the program!

Rich: If only it were a more common idea...

He's got some good birthin' hips there too.

Hey! It's a perfect visual conceptualization of Hal Jordan! Did this come from the DC's Writers' Bible they hand out to new writers?

"This is everything you need to know about Hal Jordan, personality included."
