Characters
Green Lantern [Wylxa]; Green Lantern [Tahr] (apprentice); space pirates
Synopsis
Wylxa despairs of his apprentice Tahr ever learning to be a good Green Lantern, until he remembers when he too was first wielding the green power ring.

The final image of Tahr is different from the rest of the story in hair color, shape of head, neckline of the uniform, and eyebrows. Don Milne believes it is drawn by a different, uncredited artist. Via Facebook, Paris Cullins agrees with Milne's assessment and suggested the hand of Ernie Colón.
