Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 2:56 Mins
Created in 1940, the first Green Lantern was Alan Scott, who carved his ring from a meteorite that gave him mysterious powers. The original holder of the Green Lantern title was very occult/sci-fi oriented about it, but never quite caught the attention needed. But with the birth of the Silver-Age in 1956 (thanks to Barry Allen, AKA The Flash) and DC changed up the aspects of Barry from his original golden-age counterpart, and Green Lantern was also part to the change up. So was born Hal Jordan in 1959, an air force pilot who stumbles along a dying alien who gives him a power ring to make any construct of his will and imagination, as part of an interstellar police force.

The character proved to be a hit and latter lead to other human GL's taking over in place of Hal over the years like Guy Gardner, John Stewart, and Kyle Rayner. So while Hal has come and gone throughout 40+ years in the influence of the GL/DC universe, he never quite showed his star power to the fullest...until a young writer named Geoff Johns decided he wanted to bring the character back and in a massive way in 2004. Johns had already done marvelous work on Flash (Pre-52 Wally West), Hawkman, and Justice Society of America, so it was time for the then-young writer to re-cement Hal and the GL lore to the top of the comic heap. And boy-o-boy, did it deliver.

Finally I've been waiting a long time for this. Now the big question on everyone's mind is, the quality? Is it good? Is it bad like almost all dc omnibuses?
Well it's definitely an improvement but for the time I've had it some of the binding started to come off, now it was just a little bit, I don't know if it came this way, just noticed it now but common DC!!.
But overall the binding is way better than other dc omnibuses
So everything else is pretty good the book stays open it doesn't closes on you like some omnibuses.
It doesn't have page numbers, table of content and not that many extras, for me it's not that bad but some people like page numbers or extras or a table of content to know what and where is it in the book, so it's just 1200 pages of pure GL!!!.
The hardcover is awesome, without the jacket it does has some nice artwork.
And now the content itself. It's half of Geoff John's Green Lantern run! In my opinion the greatest run of the green lantern.
I would recommend this, if you still haven't read any of the Geoff John's green lantern then this is the collection for you, now if you have all or most of the HC or TPB of Geoff John's green lantern like me I would say skip this one unless you really like omnibuses and how they look on your bookshelf.

Looking forward for vol 2.

This is truly a must have for Green Lantern fans.
1200 pages of Geoff Johnsy, Green Lanternish, DC Universe greatness.

Geoff Johns revitalizes Hal Jordan, the man without fear, in a huge wallop of a punch.
It starts of with the resurrection of Hal, and follows him through his struggle with his old mentor-turned-nemesis, Sinestro.
It leads up until Blackest Night, which I presume the 2nd Volume (Releasing August 4th) will continue from.
All the while, supplying your brain with an awe-inspiring, universe spanning story arc and just incredible art.

Geoff Johns took a small part of the Green Lantern oath, "In brightest day, in blackest night," and created one of the most entertaining comic story arcs I have ever read, bringing the entirety of the DC Universe heroes along for the ride.
It captures everything, from the desperation of the Green Lanterns, to the tension between the rivals of Hal Jordan and Batman.
This is the story line that brought me into the DC Universe from my "Marvel only" phase, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Then check out the New 52 Aquaman, also written by Geoff Johns.
