This also knocks it out of the park for me as GL story because it plays on the strengths of the GL concept. That is, it pretty much all takes place in space. Even from the get go because Hal works in space to begin with, so it's not like he gets the power on earth and becomes some kind of earth superhero first (like we've seen in some versions... like the movie). I think the strength of the GL concept is that they are in space, on other planets, etc. We have enough heroes on earth, and the GL Corps is such a strong concept, I always hate to see when it is just used to explain how GL gets his power, but then just uses it to do stuff on earth. There's a whole sector out there he should be protecting!!!
Overall, I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I knocked one star because there are a couple issues with the story where the pacing is weird, and some important events that are the climax of the book are put into play only by a random occurrence, which was hard for me to buy, even with suspension of disbelief. But the book is totally worth reading, and any true GL fan should have fun seeing this alternate take on the character and "mythology". Check out!
However, I did quite like this story, and it is quite an interesting way I think of keeping the spirit of the Silver Age (and Bronze Age) Green Lantern and basically starting afresh in the near future (given the space mining etc). The Science Fiction (rather than Fantasy) aspect is strong, and I did like that - and the approach to handling the Guardians and the other ring bearers was also quite good - and raises a number of questions that no doubt later volumes will answer.
As a long time GL fan, I did miss the Oath ;-)
