Great writing, great art.
Angelique Partin
The character of Dr. Soranik Natu is one of the most interesting new additions to the Corps and the DCU in recent years.

This book has a fun story and does a good job of introducing the characters that are central to this run.

Format: Paperback
With Hal Jordan back from the dead and John Stewart in the JLA, what's a Green Lantern to do? Re-establish the Green Lantern Corps that's what! Collecting the five issue mini-series written by Geoff Johns and Dave Gibbons and featuring art by Patrick Gleason, Green Lantern Corps: Recharge focuses on GL's Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, and Kilowog as they all play a part in the training of rookie Green Lanterns on Oa. Unbeknownst to them however is a new threat to the universe which is slowly crawling towards Oa, and the combined powers of all the Lanterns in the universe may not be enough to stop it. While Recharge isn't a revolutionary yarn of the DC universe, it is a fast and fun action tale nicely weaved by fan favorite writer Johns and Watchmen artist Gibbons, whose Infinite Crisis tie in, the Rann/Thanagar War, is better left to be forgotten, even if this has some ties to it. Gleason's art is reminiscent of Chris Bachalo's work on various X-Men titles, which means that at times it can be too cartoony for it's own good. Perhaps Gibbons would have been better off providing the pencils here. Despite all that, GL: Recharge is still a more than solid Green Lantern story that doesn't deter from the legacy of the emerald heroes, and this is worth picking up for GL fans.

The idea of the Green Lantern Corps is one of the genuinely genius concepts in the DC universe, and Green Lantern Corps: Recharge, mostly achieves success at exploring it to it's fullest potential. Superficially similar in nature to the Jedi Knights of Star Wars, the Green Lantern Corps are essentially space police, and their tales chronicle the exploits of sentient representatives from various solar systems around the galaxy, given immensely powerful rings that are powered by will (instead of lightsabers).

This trade paperback collects the mini-series that relaunched the concept at DC comics after it had been allowed to die for a period, and is a fun, action filled, epic, sci-fi, generally exciting story that will make anyone who's interested in science fiction, space, aliens, and who also likes large casts, a happy reader.

The writing here is very tight, with well realized characters who are distinct from each other, and with plots for each chapter that move briskly along and waste little time on exposition. The character of Dr. Soranik Natu is one of the most interesting new additions to the Corps and the DCU in recent years. Johns and Gibbons make a good team here, with an interesting plot involving the Spider-Guild, although the end is a little too convenient and stretches credibility more than necessary, given how grounded the rest of the story seems, ironically enough, though set against the fantastic background of space. Both writers give the Corps some nice touches/flourishes/details, which help cement the world they're trying to build. Although they don't discuss the science of the rings, (which I find unfortunate and a missed opportunity), the rings are almost characters in themselves, acting like personal communication devices.

Format: Paperback
This was a great read and is worth the purchase. All of the major Green Lanterns appear with most of the action switching between Guy and Kyle with thier rookie lantern and KIlowag with two rookie lanterns. If you have any interest in Green Lantern I suggest you start here as it is a who's who of the big time Green Lanterns.

I really enjoyed Johns reboot of the Green Lantern Corp series. This book has a fun story and does a good job of introducing the characters that are central to this run. The artwork is also crisp and fantastic.

If you're reading this and you haven't read any other Green Lantern, look earlier. Great comic though. I have enjoyed Geoff Johns

This is one of my favorite parts of the reboot. It starts out at a beginning that was somewhat unexpected for someone like me that has never read any comics. I love that even through some of the flashbacks, that it makes clear points and is not just pointless filler.

Never was a big fan of Guy Gardner, but always liked Kyle Rayner, so it was a split on that. But the story was very interesting and a good way to get the Corps back up and running.

Very exiting book!. Who say Green Lantern is only Hal Jordan. No sir. There's the Corps, which is not only Ryner, Gardner and Killowog. This time around theres new recruits with emotional and character complexities that makes the story sweeter than I thought it could be.

This is a great read before Sinestro Coprs War given that it'll give you insight on some of the Corps new blood. I like how the story goes so far. The only bad I can found on this book is that is SO damn thin!. But anyway...

Get it!. Is good stuff.
