An alternate Green Lantern page?

I love finding stuff like this. Back when Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis & company were working on the original issues of Green Lantern: Secret Origins, Ivan Reis drew the following iconic image of Sinestro and Hal Jordan recharging their power rings. The finished illustration was published on page 4 of Green Lantern #34:

However, apparently that wasn't the ORIGINAL drawing for page 4. The original drawing, replaced by the above drawing, was THIS:

Interesting. I actually like the original page better -- Hal and Sinestro united! I wonder why it was changed? Maybe someone wanted Sinestro featured more prominantly.

Hmmmm...the are both gorgeous of course. However, I think that I like the original better as well. They look more adversarial in the one that was actually used, and more of a team in the one that wasn't.

Hal looks a little purtier in the top one too. But what the heck, you can't go wrong with Ivan Reis artwork!

I love how they're both screaming.

'Now we are united!'

Yeah, the Green Lanterns need a standard yell to go along with the oath. Kinda like how the Blackhawks always yelled "HAWK-AAAA!"
