Editorial Reviews

Review

"Very well might be the best Green Lantern story of all time -- a pitch perfect saga that both reinforces and redefines all that makes Green Lantern one of the greatest superheroes in DC or anyone else's arsenal."

The art, the story, the dialogue, the character development, etc. are absolutely spot on.
Daniel J. Silva
I don't want to say too much, so I will cut this review short...but not before I state yet again that this book is an absolute MUST read for any comic fan.
HJ Louw
It is great to see him and the other Green Lanterns fighting Sinestro, the baddest of the bad and his own corps.

I enjoyed the story for the most part, but two issues kept me from loving it. One, a hefty amount of DCU knowledge is required. If you don't know who Hank Henshaw or Ranx The Sentient City are (I didn't), be prepared to hit Wikipedia every few pages. Two, especially during the battle scenes (which are most of the story), the artwork is so dense I often had difficulty deciphering where the scene was taking place, much less what was actually going on. It got a bit exhausting and I found myself longing for an establishing shot. But on the whole I found it an entertaining tale, and I look forward to Part 2.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ever since superhero writer extraordinaire Geoff Johns relaunched Green Lantern, and resurrected Hal Jordan, we've had some of the best Green Lantern stories that have ever seen the light of day in over a decade plus. Now, here comes The Sinestro Corps War, in which the classic GL villain has assembled his own regime to spread fear and terror throughout the universe. This includes taking on the entire Green Lantern Corps head-on and stripping Kyle Rayner of his Ion powers and using him as a host for the newly released Paralax. Things get even worse when Sinestro brings in new members Hank Henshaw, AKA the Cyborg-Superman, and even worse, Infinte Crisis mass murderer Superman Prime, and to top it all off, the villain behind DC's original Crisis, Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Anti-Monitor. As the body count rises, writers Johns and Dave Gibbons provide some of the most rip-roaring, action packed, and thoroughly engrossing all-out interstellar wars you'll ever see. The artwork from Ivan Reis and Ethan Van Sciver is spectacular, and even Patrick Gleason, whose work I usually don't find all that impressive, provides some solid pencils. By the time this first collected hardcover volume of The Sinestro Corps War comes to an end, you'll be salivating for more, as Johns and co. plant seeds for events that will go far beyond Hal Jordan and the rest of the GL's, as the prophesicsed Blackest Night looms ahead. When Geoff Johns relaunched the title, he said that he wanted to re-affirm the Green Lantern's place in the DC universe as a prolific superhero, and he has been incredibly successful. The proof of that is right here, pick it up.

Format: Hardcover
This is volume 1 of The Sinestro Corps. War and collects Green Lantern # 21-23 and Green Lantern Corps #14-15. After years of defeat, long-time villain Sinestro has finally discovered how to harness the power of fear, and uses it create a Lantern corps. in his own image. Gathering some of the vilest creatures in the galaxy and big-time villains in the DC Universe, Sinestro sets out to crush the Green Lanterns and the guardians once and for all.

If you're looking for a story of good vs. evil to remind yourself why you ever got into comics, this is a sprawling, epic blockbuster that will satisfy all your requirements. The amount of pencil work on each page is breathtaking as armies clash in bright bursts of green and yellow energy, all gorgeously coloured and inked. The story, led by Geoff Johns and Dave Gibbons, utilizes all your favorite Green Lantern characters and more, digging deep into the mythology with references to DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore and Infinite Crisis. Where else can you see a sentient planet face off against a sentient city?

The volume ends on a great cliffhanger that concludes in Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Vol. 2. Not all comics are worth the hardcover purchase, but this is one that will leave you wanting more.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert A. Garcia on April 29, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Geoff Johns is the current king of DC mythology. As he completes the second leg of his Green Lantern trilogy, it's obvious that Johns has learned from his mistakes in INFINITE CRISIS, because this book is the most accessable event to be written in years.

The only GREEN LANTERN book I'd ever read before this was Johns' excellent "Rebirth" arc from a few years ago. This is so much better. I had little knowledge of the Lantern Corps and its history going in, but coming out I felt like I knew everything there was to know. I was never lost, and no one should be when they read this.

Despite the contribution of four different pencilers, the art is good throughout and, like the writing, never confuses the reader. So, Kudos to Van Sciver, Reis, Gleason and Unzeta for a job well done.
The one qualm I have with this package is that this is only the first half of the story. You'll have to buy Volume 2 separately, and DC doesn't appear to have any 13-issue giant edition ("Absolute" or otherwise) on the horizon. Until that time, this is the best way to enjoy 2007's best comic book event.

Highly recommended for longtime readers as well as those just interested in reading a great comic.

Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Vol. 1

I am a Comic Book geek! I love a good story about heroes and villains. This is not a good story, it is an EPIC Masterpiece! What Geoff Johns has done with the Green Lantern mythos will resonate for decades. Since the "Rebirth" storyline, Johns has made Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps relevant again.

By playing upon themes of revolution(Sinestro's ultimate goal), police states(the GL Corp itself), and the failing of a smug and over-confident establishment (the Guardians), Johns has brought much needed intrigue and passion to the Green Lantern imprint and set the bar for the rest of the DC universe.

To fully enjoy Volume 1 you should read Green Lantern: Rebirth. Sinestro's master plan begins in Rebirth and the scariest part of the whole Sinestro Corps War series is in knowing that after the battle is done, thanks to Sinestro's plan, who don't know who is the hero and who is the villain.

Decades from now this graphic novel will rank up there with essential reads like The Watchmen, Grant Morrison's run on New X-men, and Crisis.

Do yourself a favor and pick this up, trust me I'm a geek.
