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.
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.
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.
