His first comic assignment led to a critically acclaimed run on the The Flash and JSA for DC Comics.

The concept of the Green Lantern Corps is one of the genuinely genius ideas in comics. 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 various galaxies, given immensely powerful green rings that are powered by will. Lanterns know no fear, or are at least able to overcome it.

The ongoing Green Lantern series chronicles the adventures of Earth's greatest Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, a smart, tough, not-big-into-planning test pilot with a healthy scepticism of authority, a certain talent with women and an indomitable will. Green Lantern: Agent Orange, collects issues 39-42 of the ongoing series, and parts of Blackest Night 0, as well as sections of the Tales of the Green Lantern Corps mini-series, and is one of the best single Green Lantern or comic stories you'll read all year, and there are a lot by Geoff Johns. To be enjoyed to its fullest though, I would recommend also buying the previous volume in this series, "Rage of the Red Lanterns" which is fantastic. This is not essential, but will greatly enhance the reading experience.

(If you're new to Green Lantern and can't afford to start from the first volume "Rebirth," then I would suggest at least going as far back as Green Lantern Secret Origin. That triumvirate of collections should be enough to give you the sweep and scope of the characters and the worlds involved.)

The story pits Hal against one of the most intriguing "villains" to come out of comics in a while, and is a sly allegory on Geoff Johns' part for the obsessive comic fan (at one point, the character declares, in response to Hal grabbing his Lantern, "Don't you dare dent it.

Format: Hardcover
'The Sinestro Corps War' pushed the 'Green Lantern' series to new heights and opened it up to a myriad of possibilities. After that, Geoff Johns began preluding the 'Blackest Night' event with story arcs that laid down the foundation for a climactic and epic War of Light. The story's complexity steadily increases as Johns builds on the concepts and premise of the comic, and the art is always top notch.

The notion behind the War of light, with its rainbow assortment of Lantern Corps, each powered by the emotional spectrum, chanting oaths and shining their rings across the galaxy, is admittedly a pretty silly one at its core. It takes a talented writer of Geoff Johns' caliber to transcend the series beyond the superhero genre and transform it into the compelling character-driven space opera, that it is.

Warning.. Amazon's description for 'Agent Orange' is very inaccurate. Daxam, Sodam Yat, Akrillo and Mongul do not appear in this book.

There are currently a lot of moving parts to 'Green Lantern', and 'Agent Orange' is no exception. There's as much character-development as there is for the plot. I don't like to give away spoilers, so here's a vague summary of what to expect:

Fatality is back, and ready for love. Hal is still struggling with his new ring, and the subtly pietistic themes behind Ganthet's and Sayd's Blue Lanterns are elaborated on. The Avarice Corps is introduced, when Larfleeze, 'Agent Orange' breaks his silence after a millennia of pining away in the Vega system; he proves to be truly dastardly but a joy to read. The story ends with a whopper of a twist, that exposes a great deal of the Green Lantern Guardians' deception and facism.

Guest artist, Philip Tan superbly illustrates this story arc.

There... I said it!!!!.

Let's start with the good stuff. The art... I'm quite surprise about Philip Tan's work on this book. Feels like the new Jim Lee but with less bulkier characters. Cool character design, great execution with the existing ones and magnificent backgrounds. Art have a perfect ten!!!.

The story by Geoff Jones is exactly like his late work... AWESOME!!. This is an incredibly great book to lead to Blackest Night. These last few books of the series has been quite an eye opener for the past of the guardians, and this is not the exeption. I love when I see something good is cooking.

This book contain:
* Green Lantern 38 to 42
* A chapter from Origins & Omens that shows a bit of the future of Hal Jordan and John Steward. Spoiler free!.
* A short chapter from Tales of the Orange Lanterns
* Some alternative cover gallery
* Blackest Night 0, which contains sketches, short comments on the drawings and a short presentation of each lantern corps, including the ones we know so far and the Indigo and Black Lanterns.

Now let's go with the bad part:

THIS IS 128 PAGES ONLY!!!!!!!!. Although the content is good, I really hate the fact that DC is ofting throwing thinner books. For what I include above it would seem is a big book, but is not. It is one of the smaller books they've publish so far. What's gonna be next time... a 59 page hardcover?. Sheeesh!!.

Anyway, those were my two cents. I HATE TO LOVE IT!!!!!!!.

Get the paperback edition. Is only $10 although, if you can find a discount on it, TAKE IT!.
