If your in for a rainbow-studded action team book that is simple on story and plots, as well as interesting in the GL mythos, then knock yourself out.

This TPB was a great intro to Kyle Rayner and the other Corps (Yellow, Green, Indigo, Sapphire, Orange, Red) without much confusion.

Of the DC New 52, Green Lantern and Batman were two properties that going into the reboot had very little changes to their respected continuities. So with the main title of Green Lantern starring Hal Jordan and GL Corps starring Guy Gardner and John Stewart continuing their stories almost like nothing ever happened, news of the two other new GL based titles intrigued me. Red Lanterns Vol. 1: Blood and Rage (The New 52) was one of them, and the other was Kyle Rayner getting his own title...BUT he was going to get paired up with every member of the various lantern corps for a team book. Now I'm excited. But oh wait--every member will consist of the second-in-command members. Okay, now I'm really excited! And what becomes of this rainbow-esque GL title? A GL fans dream come true.

GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS VOL.1: THE RING BEARER collecting issues #1-7. Kyle Rayner is enjoying his current life back on Earth, following the events of Green Lantern: War of the Green Lanterns (Green Lantern (Graphic Novels)). But suddenly, each ring from the various corps appears out of no where in front of Kyle, with each of the rings' second-in-command following right behind. Red lanterns Bleez, Yellow lanterns Arkillo, Indigo lanterns Munk, Violet lanterns Fatality, Orange lanterns Glomulus, and Blue lanterns Saint Walker all want answers. But something has driven these events, and the only way to find out why is to stick together and see.

Kyle Rayner was in the right place at the right time when Ganthet bestowed him with the last Green Lantern power ring. Now, a few years later Kyle finds himself at that wrong place at the wrong time as power rings from the various lantern corps of the emotional spectrum choose him to be their lantern. When the guardians try and get to the bottom of this Kyle gets a glimpse at what they are up to when his mentor and father figure turns on him.

Kyle and the various members of the other corp begin a quest to get to the bottom of things while dealing with a new evil that has made its presence known to the galaxy.

This is currently my favorite of the New 52 GL books and I always look forward to Bedard's writing and Kirkham's illustrations.

When I started reading DC's New 52 books in 2011, I knew I wanted to check out the Green Lantern books more than any of the others. I'd always loved Green Lantern, but had stopped reading them about a year after Kyle Rayner took over for Hal Jordan, and, honestly, I can't say I would have read a solo Kyle Rayner book had one been published with the New 52. He didn't get a solo book, but what he did get was a book called GREEN LANTERN: The New Guardians.

Well, I was slightly curious about that, especially considering the cover to the first issue showed Kyle and half a dozen other Lanterns of various colors reaching for a variety of rings hovering in the air above them. I had to find out what that was about. And the answer was interesting enough to make this a regular monthly buy.

In GREEN LANTERN: The New Guardians' first story arc, "The Ring Bearer", Kyle Rayner is still Green Lantern #4 for earth's space sector, 2814, and from the outset we see he's probably the least popular GL around. Everyone prefers Hal or John, and rightfully so. But Kyle's a man with feelings too, you know. And when he comes to the rescue after a crane starts to break free from the skyscraper it's attached to, he's no one's least favorite then. And just as he's finishing up the rescue, he's suddenly bombarded with six more power rings just like the green one he wears. See, what happens with the power rings is, when their original wearer dies or is decommissioned from his corps, the ring finds a new replacement in the same space sector. And whatever's happened to these original rings' wearers, the rings have all chosen Kyle Rayner as the successor.

Never really been a fan of Kyle, but this is really changing my mind. Plot is pretty good and the story telling is great so far.

This TPB was a great intro to Kyle Rayner and the other Corps (Yellow, Green, Indigo, Sapphire, Orange, Red) without much confusion. It's also a continuation of the "Guardians might be evil or something close to evil" storyline raised in the main GL run. I'm really liking the sense of humor and Kyle is much more relatable than the other three Earth GL's who each have a military background. The Invictus/Larfleeze storyline is killer, and so far this may be the best of the GL books.

I am a huge fan of the Green Lantern series are truly love when all the Corps come together for a greater cause, however ambiguous that cause may seem at the particular time. Seeing a mature and more seasoned Kyle is something great. We get more and more insight into the life and times of Larfleeze as we progress through the various Green Lantern storylines and even get to know more of the individual personalities of Agent Orange's "constructs". A very interesting selection of characters representing their respective Corps in this story. Fantastic writing, great plot, amazing artwork. Sometimes there is a thin line between good and evil; nothing in life is truly that simple. This collection speaks about that complexity which is very organic and real. Highly recommend it!
