The acclaimed writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis, explore the hidden past of the Green Lantern Corps, to sow the seeds of the greatest Green Lantern story ever told!

Before he became the greatest Green Lantern. Before he unwittingly brought about the downfall of the Green Lantern Corps. Before his rebirth as the universe's most powerful protector, Hal Jordan of Earth was just a washed-up test pilot with no way to fly ... until the dying alien Abin Sur granted him his power ring, the most powerful weapon in the universe-and his entry into a reality he could never have imagined.

This volume collects issues #29-35 of GREEN LANTERN.

Geoff Johns follows up the Sinestro Corps War with an amazing look at the beginning of Hal Jordan's career as Green Lantern and the end of the life of Hal's predecessor, Abin Sur. Seeing the beginnings of villains such as Sinestro, Hector Hammond, and Black Hand was great and conecting it all in some way to the Blackest Night is exciting. I look forward to each and every new trade. Great stuff!

Great for any green lantern fan. Not exactly in chronological order but still a good start.

A fun retelling/reimagining/retconning of the Hal Jordan Green Lantern story. While fun to read as a standalone for people new to the franchise, for people familiar with its long history might get the sense that this is more of an attempt to paper over the cracks and 'foreshadow' events in the 'future' as a means to justify certain retconned events. But overall, as a standalone graphic novel, it certainly is drawn and written well.

I've never read much of the traditional DC material, but this certainly wants me to read more. A good story with great character development and building an interesting foundation for the future. Guess I might be trying to track down more...
