His first comic assignment led to a critically acclaimed run on the The Flash and JSA for DC Comics. Since then, he has quickly become one of the most popular and imaginative writers in comic books today, working on titles including a highly successful re-imagining of Green Lantern, The Flash: Rebirth, Superman: Secret Origin, Action Comics, Adventure Comics, Teen Titans, Justice Society of America, Infinite Crisis and the experimental breakout hit series 52 for DC with Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid.

Carlos Pacheco, along with Ethan Van Sciver and Ivan Reis, once again provide great art as well.
N. Durham
There was a back-story with the Global Guardians, but it was not fully explored (possibly mentioned in a later book).
Steve
The story of Hal's return to the Green Lantern Corp is getting better with each step to redemption and forgiveness.

Format: Hardcover
Green Lantern: Revenge of the Green Lanterns is a somewhat uncommon collection in as much as the seven issues it collects (#7 - 13) don't contain a solitary storyline the way most hardcover or trade paperback collections do. There are three distinct storylines although I suppose you could make a case for them being loosely tied together if you really reach.

The opening story finds Green Lantern and Green Arrow battling the children of Superman Arch-villain Mongul as they have come to claim the Earth in the name of their late father. The story isn't significant so much for the battle against the pair but rather the back-story of how Hal and Ollie see their lives after they've been infected by Mongul's alien plant known as Black Mercy.

The second story arc finds Hal teaming with Batman against a foe known as the Tattooed Man who can bring his tattoos to life. Again, this minor threat isn't the main thrust of the story but rather it's the mending of the relationship between Batman and Green Lantern after the events in Infinite Crisis. Much life most of DC's other superhero titles, Green Lantern is getting re-booted with a clean slate so to speak.

Finally we get to the title story arc. When the Green Lantern Tomar Tu, thought killed by Hal in the whole Parallax storyline, comes crashing to Earth in his spaceship he mutters that he will kill Hal Jordan. Back on the home world of the Guardians, Hal recalls those terrible events in which he killed several fellow Green Lanterns which still earns him much distrust in the Green Lantern Corps.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By N. Durham HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Infinite Crisis mastermind Geoff Johns' rebooting of Green Lantern is still going strong with this collection. Revenge of the Green Lanterns collects several storylines as Hal Jordan is still reconnecting with his old life of being a super hero. Beginning with a team up with his best friend Oliver Queen, AKA Green Arrow, against the children of Mongul who are hellbent on Earth's destruction, the story then shifts to a team up between Hal and Batman. This story is surprisingly poignant as we witness the reconnection between the two heroes who had fallen out of favor with each other since the events of Green Lantern: Rebirth and beyond. From that point on, we get to the heart of the story as Hal gets a big surprise when the Lanterns thought to have been killed by him when he became Paralax make a stunning return. This leads to another team up, this time with fellow GL Guy Gardner, as the two Lanterns head to uncharted regions and battle Manhunters, as well as the mastermind behind it all. There's nothing really spectacular with Revenge of the Green Lanterns, but Johns weaves a great super hero story that is quite fun indeed. Carlos Pacheco, along with Ethan Van Sciver and Ivan Reis, once again provide great art as well. All in all, if you're looking for a more than solid Green Lantern story, look no further.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on January 11, 2007
Format: Hardcover
First off,I will recommend this book as a companion to the awesome Green Lantern Rebirth.

It's a great follow up which shows GL's relationships with other heroes,primarily Batman and Green Arrow,as well as the Green Lantern Corps whom he destroyed years ago when he was the evil Parallax.

Great art is provided by Carlos Pacheco,Ethan Van Sciver(Rebirth)and the amazing Ivan Reis who pencils the title story.

This graphic novel is a must read for any new GL fan or GL fan in general.It has great character interaction as well as loud and widescreen intergalactic action.

Highly recommended.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Simon on January 3, 2010
Format: Paperback
This volume collects issues #7-13 of the current Green Lantern comic helmed by Geoff Johns, and is the second book in the series following Green Lantern (Book 1): No Fear (or third, if you slot in the mini-series Green Lantern: Rebirth as the one that re-started it all). Featured artists include Ivan Reis, Ethan Van Sciver and Carlos Pacheco.

As stated in the title, I found this volume to be a great starting point for getting into the current Green Lantern mythos. I had grabbed this on a whim one night off the magazine rack at a video rental store, and was sorely impressed by the material despite not knowing much prior Green Lantern history. This is one of Geoff Johns' strengths as a writer - despite references to heavy continuity, such as Hal Jordan's turn to evil in the 90's Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight & A New Dawn story line, Johns is able to boil history down to its essentials, encapsulate it for the reader, and move on. Where others use simple editors notes (ie. "See Green Lantern Vol. 3 #50) or lengthy dialogue recaps, here quick flashback panels built into the narrative illustrate history by the easiest way to understand it - visually.
