This title has always been a difficult one for me as I have never found it easy to actually like.
It's really rather perverse, as I do like the pairing of Jessica and Simon, but for me they only work well when in the Justice League, in their own title they are often bogged down in storylines that are mining the Geoff Johns mythos and doing that mining in the most unoriginal and uninteresting of ways.
But Ungara... an odd choice of a planet to set a story on for these two as unlike Hal Jordan neither has any knowledge or tie to the planet, and the name Abin Sur would mean not a thing to them either. So on the one hand the entire reason behind the story is meaningless, while on the other it does get Sion and Jessica away from earth... though again this comes over as incredibly forced as the premise of this series is bound to the fact that these two Green Lanterns are specifically assigned to watch over earth and leave the rest of the Sector to Hal etc. So a story set on ungara is really a story for Hal Jordan to be involved in, and for more reasons than the one. It would have resonance if He was the Lantern called to this planet and the potential for reflection on Abin Sur's ties to Hal and his role as his predecessor Green Lantern. But for Simon and Jessica...?
