The sold out 6-issue miniseries event of 2004-2005—written by Geoff Johns (Blackest Night, Teen Titans) with art by Ethan Van Sciver and Prentis Rollins—is available in this new edition, complete with the preview story from Wizard Magazine as well as a number of extras previously only available in Absolute Green Lantern: Rebirth

Hal Jordan was considered the greatest Green Lantern of them all. But Jordan lost control, allowed himself to be corrupted and transformed into the villainous Parallax. Later, Jordan reappeared and made the ultimate sacrifice—a sacrifice that allowed him to become the Spectre, the Wrath of God. 

After several years of activity on Earth, The Spectre became restless and sought a way to prove himself worthy of that noble reputation. See how a man born without fear and seeking to rebuild his life, puts cosmic forces into motion that will have repercussions not only on Earth but across the universe. This volume sets up the events of Blackest Night and revitalized Green Lantern as one of the most important heroes of the DCU!

in a modernized form. What started off as one of the best sci-fi based takes on the Green Lantern legacy in the early 1960s and somewhat infamous by its 1970s Green Arrow/Green Lantern phase ended in a mess around the 1990s version. Hal Jordan, test pilot and first human known to join the Green Lantern Corps became another victim of the 1990s sales for sales mentality. It started with the success of The Death and Return of Superman and then Batman getting his back broken in Knightfall, so DC Comics wanted another hero to take a fall. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern legacy was the next target but unlike the story-telling in the vein of Superman and Batman "fallen hero rises", Hal and the Silver Age Green Lantern legacy didn't return. In his place, a new character Kyle Rayner was created to be Green Lantern in name and the legacy that was so key to the Silver Age Green Lantern disappeared for over 5 years. Then Geoff Johns came into the DC Comics writing stables and suddenly he became a fan favorite. Once Geoff got a hold of rebuilding the Silver Age based Green Lantern legacy, Green Lantern: Rebirth was the amazing result. And suddenly Green Lantern was in the top ten selling comics for DC Comics. This is where that all starts, the Green Lantern legacy returns with the strongest story-telling in a Green Lantern book in years.

Although I'm mostly a Marvel fan, I've been trying to get into DC Comics for a while now (mainly so I'll have more comics to read, since I tend to devour them so quickly). I figured that this would be a good place to jump into Green Lantern. Well...I'm not sure.There was a lot of stuff thrown at the reader at once. I know that this is an attempt to get Hal Jordan back into favor in the DC Universe, so a lot of continuity is almost a must to please the fanboys. But it makes getting into the character quite a chore. Plus I really didn't find myself liking the character of Hal Jordan much at all. He's cocky and something of a jerk; at least, that's how it felt in this comic. I'm not giving up on Green Lantern quite yet; I'll be picking up some more issues and hoping that I can get into the series by sheer force of will. But I really didn't think that this is worthy of all of the rave reviews that it's received in the comic book world. Maybe if I had been a Green Lantern fan from the beginning, or at least for decades, I'd feel differently. But comic book writers really need to have some jumping on points for new fans, too, if they want to attract new readers.

If you haven’t read any Green Lantern graphic novels this one will make absolutely no sense at all. It starts out with Hal dead and the spectre inside of him. The art was not my favorite of the Green Lantern series. The characters look so different in this one than in all of the other books. I prefer the artist for Blackest Night. I’d definitely suggest reading the stories previous to this one in order to understand what’s going on here. If you aren't up on everything in Green Lantern's world you will be even more lost than I was! Reviewed by Kole for Book Sake.
