One of many absolute edition reviews i made, largely so you can get a feel for the look of the book as well as its bonus features. my vids are mostly about the particular addition, with minimal critique of the story/art itself.

Let's get the obvious out of the way first. The presentation of the book is beautiful. There is a new drawing in the slipcase made by Ethan Van Sciver, the material in which the book is made is pretty cool and nice to the touch. All in all this is a book that is pretty on the sight.

Why I give it one star?. Because is the THINEST Absolute Edition ever. I received mine yesterday and it makes me wanna cry because of how small it is!. I can't beleive it cost $75 retail price. I mean, this little book only have 224 pages, for Christ sake. It looks like a kid's bed-time story. The extras are a JOKE, a slap in the face. You can see a couple of Thumbnails of the outline here on Amazon. That's pretty much it!!. There is the script of chapter one (that is a perfect transcription of what you already saw in the first issue) and a few other pages with sketches, but NO COMMENTS on the drawings.

There is also the two stories included: "Flight" and "Green Lantern #1", which can both be found in the trade Green Lantern: No Fear. Fist of all, "Green Lantern #1" is waaaaay incomplete!. They didn't include the whole chapter but only 2 or 3 pages from it. "Flight", by Darwyn Cooke is just fantastic. That little porcion of the book looks even better than Rebirth itself.

Ethan Van Sciver's art wasn't made to be enlarge. I used to dig the drawing of Kyle Ryner's first appearance in Rebirth when he say "Don't be afraid", but on this edition the big pages just let you know that Van Sciver dont worry to even make a decent background. Only the characters matter, and even those doesn't look that great.

The reason why I got this was because I though they will be releasing Absolute Sinestro Corps War too, and that will make a cool collection if I got both of them.

Green Lantern Rebirth is, as most know, the story that brought Hal Jordan back as the amazing Green Lantern we all remembered him to be. The story in question is great. If you like the Green Lantern, you will probably enjoy this. The story, however, has already been brilliantly reviewed by many so it isn't my focus here. The quality of the book is though, and let me just say, is dazzling. It's very large and the art looks fantastic. The Slipcase is very well done and it even comes with a dust jacket. I feel that I got my moneys worth for every single penny with this book, and I would have even been willing to have payed more for it.

If you have the money to spare, and you really want a definitive edition of a great story, check this out.

Im a new Green Lantern fan, as of October 2011. I guess you could say the movie got me into it but it was my own research into the comic and character that really got me going. As soon as I learned that The Green Lantern was more SciFi and not just another "mutant" or person with magical powers, I was hooked. I have been a scifi lover pretty much since I could walk so The Green Lantern series was right up my alley. So I began to research where to start actually READING Green Lantern and my first purchase was the newer hardcover release of the Green Lantern Omnibus, which collects from his first appearance or creation through the first comics of his own ongoing series. Now these stories are decent reading but they were written waaaay back when comics were extremely campy and about good constantly prevailing over evil. So I made it about half way through this enormous Omnibus and got a little bored with it. Then I did some more research on the modern Green Lantern stories and learned about Geoff Johns. I immediately knew this is where I wanted to go next, so I purchased Secret Origins hardcover. Now most of this comic was a kind of recap as to what I previously read in the Omnibus but there were a lot of new elements and additions to the story which made it a little more modern and likeable not to mention the art is GREAT. Immediately after Secret Origins, I knew i wanted Rebirth, and my debate was do I get the normal hardcover tpb or do i go all out and get the Absolute Green Lantern Rebirth? Of course the "all-out" cynic in me chose the Absolute edition because of all the extras included and the larger size of the book compared to the normal size tpb's, which meant larger panels for my eye candy.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Beign a big Green Lantern fan (but mostly a HUGE Siniestro fan since the Gardner Fox days) I really loved this mini series and after getting the softcover edition of Rebirth I went back and hunted down the original mini series and waited breathleassly for a new hardcover edition (since I missed the original print). When the Absolute version was anounced I was estatic and figured that since most of the editions I owned ranged from $75 dollars for a 12 issue series (like the magnificent Absolute Long Halloween and Absolute Hush) to $100 for plus 13 issues (like Absolute Sandman) this would probably be priced at $50, and with Amazon's discount it might be somehting along the line of $38 so that price range was just about right for me. A friend of mine ordered his copy right away and we got it this week. The story itself really goes to another level with the bigger presentation, and Van Sciver's art really is the perfect mariage with Johns' story, but I'm guessing anybody interested in putting down $50 for this might be familiar with the story presented here, so I'll skip straight to why should someone go for this expesive edition istead of a perfectly servicable $10 softcover; the presentation. I have to say that that's about the only thing this edition has going for itself; the "bonus" materials are ok but they dont really add anything all that great to the book itself, plus everything here has been released before.Read more ›
