Format: Hardcover
As with other universe shattering events under Green Lantern architect Geoff Johns in almost 9 years, the mythology of entire Emotional Spectrum has lead to some high points. Sinestro Corps, Blackest Night, and War of the Green Lanterns have all been large and successful events to further the GL tapestry. Now we have the penultimate arc before Geoff Johns and his fellow GL writers leave Hal Jordan and friends behind, that is the current event, Rise of the Third Army.

RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY collects the following in order:

Green Lantern #13 and #14
Green Lantern Corp #13 - #15
Green Lantern: New Guardians #13 - 16
Red Lanterns #13 - #16
Green Lantern #15 and #16
Green Lantern Corp #16
Green Lantern Corp ANNUAL #1

To refresh your memory, since the beginning of the New 52, the Guardians have gotten tired of dealing with the disobedience of Hal Jordan and their current Lanterns since the events of Sinestro Corp War. Since the Guardians failed with their first army billions of years, the Manhunters, because of a glitch in their software. Then came the living beings that are the current second GL Corp, but their emotion and free will has gotten out of hand. So the Guardians set into motion events for the entire GL Corps and its Earth lanterns (Hal, Guy, John, and Kyle) methods to distract or take them out of the way of their grand plan of creating a third army that has no emotions, free will, and free thought.

The third army are faceless beings who are not only difficult to kill, but once they touch a living being long enough, and become another mindless monster under the control of the Guardians. The only ones who can stop this threat are out of the picture.

Rise of Third army is a great story but not perfect. For one, the stories frequently loose focus, I'm not saying that they are bad, they just go off and do their own thing which should probably have been cut out and left for their own books. (They also slow down the story).

It also ends on a cliff hanger like most of DCs current Graphic novels which makes me very angry because the stories are just so good and shouldn't be subject to this money grubbing trick.

The art's perfect, the stories great, Characters are awesome. I recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
"The Rise of the Third Army" was originally spread across Green Lantern Annual #1, Green Lantern #13-16, Green Lantern Corps #13-16, Green Lantern: New Guardians #13-16, Red Lanterns #13-16, Purple Lanterns (sorry, strike that), and Green Lantern Corps Annual #1. The individual stories are repackaged into some semblance of order in this volume.

As the creepy blue-skinned Guardians descend into madness, they create a big blue-skinned mouthless creature and task it with assembling an army by assimilating its members ("one mind, one flesh") with a view to creating absolute order via the destruction of free will. To do this, the creature and its minions literally rip the hearts out of people (for reasons that go unexplained but probably have something to do with the coolness of the resulting gory artwork). The creature seeks out rednecks on Earth (and perhaps rednecks on other planets), either because they are in plentiful supply or easy to assimilate, having not much brainpower to begin with. Cut to Washington where Barack Obama is wondering where all the Green Lanterns have gone, a question made relevant by the news that suspected terrorist Simon Baz (who is clearly guilty of street racing) has been busted out of Guantanamo by a Green Lantern ring that is apparently offended by illegal detentions. The ring gives Baz a GL uniform but a ridiculously muscular version of the Justice League wants to strip it from him.

The story is chock full of Lanterns -- the entire Rainbow Coalition of Lanterns is represented -- as well as other characters from the colorful Lantern universe.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. A Magill TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 10, 2013
Format: Hardcover
"Rise of the Third Army" offers exactly the sort action soaked threat to the galaxy (universe?) that fans have come to expect from Geoff Johns over the years. A new enemy, several missing Lanterns (including Hal), one discarded Lantern, and another brand-new Lantern from earth combine with some extraordinary art to again raise the bar for the whole space opera genre.

With the release of "Rise of the Third Army," the penultimate installment of Geoff Johns' extraordinary long run on Green Lantern, it is worth taking a moment to consider just how much Johns has made that universe his own. Yes, this volume includes work by some other excellent writers (Bedard especially stands out), Johns' vision of Green Lantern has so expanded and subsumed this portion of the DC universe that it is hard to imagine it moving beyond his imprint. Indeed, I had a hard time thinking of any writer who proved such a creative force as Johns, taking an entire section of a given universe and making it wholly there own. Folks like Kirby spawned extraordinary visions that reverberated for generations, but they were wholly his creation. Others have remade a given character based on their imagination (such as Frank Miller with Batman and Daredevil). In the end, I came up with two, both on the Marvel side (Claremont and Byrne with their work on X-men that gave rise to the mutant world that at times to make up the lion share of the Marvel Universe and Starlin who reinvented "cosmic" Marvel when he took over Warlock).

Still, Johns' re-invention of the Lantern Universe is audacious for its breadth. Just consider: where once stood one Lantern Corp and Sinestro slinging his yellow ring, we now have Seven Lantern Corps (not counting black and white of course).
