Hal Jordan’s back.
“Hey Hal, you’ve been gone a long time, like years. Where’ve you been?”
So, he pals around with Kyle Rayner.
“Hey Kyle, can you grab us a couple of beers from the fridge?”
Long pau ...more
Following the astonishing Green Lantern Rebirth, in which Hal Jordan is revived from death, Johns delivers another riveting chapter in Volume 1. Returning to Coast City, which was destroyed by Parallax and has now been rebuilt, Hal Jordan finds his return from death a difficult adjustment. While trying to earn back his wings and reenter the Air Force, strange supernatural events occur: manhunter androids start killing people, a prototype jet using alien technology nearly crashes, the Green Lante ...more
All in all this was an okay start to the reboot. I didn't enjoy it as much as Rebirth - but it got the ball rolling well enough. It was a little 'jumpy' but I managed to stay on target and had some fun with it.
My favorite thing about Green Lantern has always been his corps. and the more spacey stuff. While there was a touch of that in here, most of it took place on earth. H ...more
First of all let me say this I really enjoyed Green Lantern: Rebirth.And now its time for Hal to get on with his life like it was before his death.
The story starts off with Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner who are going for a ride in his beloved fighter jets.
And then we get to see his origins in issue one pretty intresting if you didn't know alot about Hal Jordan.
Hal Jordan is feeling lost after being dead for so long, you really get into his head and see what he's thinking and feeling. He gets a new ...more
This volume had strong writing throughout. The writing is honestly what earned this volume the four stars. Why wasn't the writing good enough for five stars? It was, actually, however the stories weren't interesting or compelling enough for John's writing. Ther ...more
No Man Escapes The Manhunters!
I was also bummed to find that Ethan Van Sciver only drew one issue of the six in this collection! I didn't mind Carlos Pacheco's art, but he's been better. His art seemed rather rushed and mor ...more
The first pages written by johns and illustrated by Cooke... Perfection, one of my favourite illustrators working with my favourite writer.
The corps is now very reduced and they have to face remaining manhunters (with a new master), super evolved creatures, goblins and, last but not least, black hand, and protect (the empty) coast city.
Just another reason for my love for mr johns to grow.
I have been meaning to read through Geoff John's GL run for a long time and my wife just happened to give to to me on Christmas!
I'll start by saying that this isn't a huge epic tale that will blow your dick/tits off, but it's building towards something huge! I had no idea that John's was building toward Blackest night event since the start of his run! That's so god damn epic!! And not o ...more
Geoff Jones is to Green Lantern as Chuck Dixon is to Batman, for me anyway. Those men are the best writers for the character and universe. Like I said, don't know what happens in this one but i can ass ...more
First, we meet the dreaded Manhunters, created 3 billion years ago by the Guardians of the Universe. Who are the Guardians? They are the evolved line of ...more
Rebirth, the six-issue mini-series that marked the start of Geoff Johns’ nearly 9-year run on the Green Lantern book, was a story that completely blew me. It was pretty much a perfect graphic novel as far as I was concerned. Despite the fact that it was a transitional book and marked the return of Hal Jordan as a Green Lantern after spending a considerable amount of time as Parallax, and so would nor ...more
As I said, this was really fun - there is so much you can do under the Green Lantern title and this one does not let down. It's got a cool story, great action, great art and wonderful humor.
The stor ...more
Man oh man is this ever a good way to restart a series! The first 3 issues, the last leap out of the plane in issue 3...wow! Then we get the fragmented 3 issue mini arc. as I said, it's an amazing start followed by a choppy second arc.
World: Pacheco is wonderful, I like his art, in fact I like it more than Van Sciver for GL. It's a little bit more clean in terms of line work and the sense of motion and framing is strong. Van Sciver is his old self, his ...more
Geoff Johns writes the story for this collection which official kicks off his long Green Lantern run. He is the reason that I'm started reading this, along with great word-of-mouth for this series. I'm excited of the things that Johns will eventually create and the stories he will eventually tell (things I've already heard about), but as for this specific collection, it was just OK.
This volume acts as ...more
This trade is easily accessible and friendly enough to attract a Green Lantern newbie like myself. My only real point of contention was that the art varies ...more
My son is getting into superheroes and particularly enjoys the GL cartoon. Who am I kidding—I like it too. So when I saw this trade at the local library I picked it up for both of us to read.
This is a bit of a reboot of the GL mythos. Hal Jordan is back from the dead and fighting old-school enemies like Black Hand. He also has family issues and an hones ...more
The biggest disappointment to me here is the fact that Carlos Pacheco, an artist I absolutely love, is around to bring back th ...more
