This, like my other Absolute reviews, 'unboxes' the book so you can get a good look at slipcase, dust jacket, hardcover, and special features. I also have a little rant at the end, making a counter point to the one star reviewer who felt that the omission of the supplemental Superman Prime one-shot was reason to dock so many stars off the rating. in short, they argued that the aforementioned one-shot contained an important part of the story and shouldn't have been left out. I argue that the one-shots were primarily to serve up back-story for the featured title villains, and have no impact on the main event. You could easily skip them and the only thing that you would miss is where Superman Prime's shirt went. Seeing as this event was the equivalent of 13 issues already, it is unreasonable to expect DC to package another hundred pages of supplemental back stories and side-battles. The story is complete, and MAN it is gorgeous in this format.

Update:
After more thoughtful consideration, i have decided to remove one star for the omission of the one-shots. I don't care too much for extra features, but i have now decided that i agree with the detractors, that the one shots wouldn't have been too much to ask. Regarding the page count: The Absolute Sandman books were around 20 issues each, and neither felt too cumbersome and still maintained the same price tag. And since these books are printed in China, i refuse to believe that it would be too costly for DC to include the one-shots and NOT make a massive profit. I'm still happy with my purchase: Absolute Editions give me more long-term enjoyment than any video games or Heroclix i collect, but I must concede that DC seems to be going cheap to pinch pennies.

I really wanted to give this book a 5 star review but I simply can't. It is supposed to be the Absolute Edition of the Sinestro Corp War but it is in fact only 2 volumes. The third was the Tales of the Sinestro Corp War (and GL featuring Ion). While some might say that is ok the various tales actually fill in some gaps left for these expansion tales.

Don't get me wrong, I love having the awesome over sized book with vol 1 & 2 together but when the first word is Absolute, I expect to get everything SCW in one book.

Still highly recommend this book (especially over TPB's).

I believe there is no need to go in great depth here since most of you interested in this product have already read SCW and
is one of you favorite GL stories! Other reviewers on this side have shown both video and a detailed content list so all I can say is: If you can afford it, get it! This is my first Absolute edition ever and it didn't disappoint.

About the missing one-shots! We all knew the contents of the book way before the release so we can't say we were fooled. Though the exclusion of the one-shots is a sad thing,and drops this edition from perfect to pretty darn great,this is still a masterpiece on its own. There is great deal of extras in the book compared to the TPB,sketches,scripts, tales of the Sinestro corps and a lot more. The production value of the book is superb,from the quality and presentation to the book binding. A+

SCW is one of the best, if not the best Green Lantern story ever. Collectors probably already have this edition on their shelfs. Its Christmas soon... Treat yourself to something nice!

5/5 9.5/10

The Sinestro Corps War is undoubtably some of Geoff John's greatest work. And what better way to collect it all, than in a gorgeous, oversized, hardcover format! The price might be a little painful, and it might be missing the One-Shots, (which aren't necessary to the central story anyway, although I do agree that DC should've included them). Regardless, its a great read, and if you're into collecting, it's defiantly worth the coin.

This is the content:

1. GREEN LANTERN #21-25, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14-19 and GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS SPECIAL #1
2. The Tales of Sinestro Corps backups (Despotellis, Karu-Sil, Bedovian, Sinestro).
3. Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Secret Files and Origins
4. Original Proposal by Geoff Johns 2pgs
5. Interviews and sketches
6. Figure/Toy gallery
7. New cover

NOT INCLUDED: Tales of the Sinestro Corps: Superman-Prime, Parallax, Ion, Cyborg Superman.

So, how about them apples? The most important tie-ins are not included. The Superman-Prime issue is not even a tie-in... is part of the story, and it was left out! Even when fans cried for this to be included months before release.

Don't be fooled! Sinestro Corps: Superman-Prime IS a crucial part of the story. First of all, without it, Superman Prime only comes up at the beginning of the story (remember... this is a heavy hitter character), seating in the moon doing nothing, and then you can see him again almost at the end with his suit torn apart. You don't get to see the HUGE fight with him versus virtually every single super-hero on the planet! Besides this, there is a pivotal moment on his fight with Sodam Yat too that explain why he, being the wielder of the power of Ion, still needs to wear a ring. THAT single event plays a VERY important part on the GL storyline later on.

But of course, some people think you don't need to see the event happening...

You might say "You don't need to see Superman-Prime's fight to get the story. He just fought with lots of people and that's it!", but I guess you might say that too about his fight with Superboy in Infinite Crisis.
