I'm three days late for my Green Theme Read, but here it is.

Hal Jordan, having just lost his home city to Mongul and Cyborg Superman, snaps and turns on the entire Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians of the Universe in an effort to gain enough power to remake Coast City. (view spoiler)

This is the three

Forzada por la respuesta comercial de "La Muerte de Superman" y "Knightfall", la miniserie que presenta el adiós de Hal Jordan como Linterna Verde acusa todos los fallos de un producto a medio cocer, partiendo por su débil premisa (donde la rebelión del héroe es poco más que un berrinche), situaciones inverosímiles y un pobre desarrollo argumental que incluye diálogos y personajes. Telón apresurado para un personaje insigne de DC cuya ausencia se resintió en los años venideros al punto de buscar ...more

I have long maintained that this story made Hal Jordan a more intriguing, more rounded character. Yes it was sad to see him fall from grace, but I never subscribed to the common view that his conversion to Parallax was out-of-character. Everybody, even Hal Jordan, has a breaking point; his home city was destroyed, seven million people were murdered, and Hal was not even there to save them or to die with them. Never in his career had he suffered such a defeat, and the despair he felt is entirely ...more

I came to love GL during Geoff Johns' "Rebirth", but wanted to know what this whole Parallax thing was all about. I have to say that this was a pretty awesome read! Ron Marz took Hal Jordan and gave the dude dimension before Johns got to him. What would you do if your whole world burned and you had a ring that could do whatever you will? The Joker said "All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy." And he ain't lyin'. If you're diggin' the current Green Lantern stuff, gi ...more

Para começar, a nossa EaglemossBr não cadastrou corretamente o ISBN... Crepúsculo Esmeralda/Novo Amanhecer (DC Comics Coleção de Graphic Novels #30).
Hal Jordan com mágoa, angústia e raiva, coisas que não condizem com um Lanterna. Já que ele age como um louco, os Guardiões também... Um novo começo com um novo 2814, jovem e sem sequer uma casa ou emprego, e já tendo de enfrentar Mongul (mesmo que com uma ajudinha...). Em seguida, ele tem de passar por perdas para amadurecer.

It has its moments (his interaction with 'Coast city', for example), but overall it's just an okay story. You can get everything you need by reading two sentences about it.
May 17, 2014 rated it really liked it
Emerald Twilight was a three issue mini-series that needed more time to tell such a grand story. Hal Jordan is still reeling from the destruction of his hometown of Coast City and is slowly turning into something decidedly NOT Hal Jordan. Part one is largely another retelling of Hal's origin story, with Hal recreating Coast City and its inhabitants through the power of his ring. The Guardians disapprove as he is using his ring for "personal gain" and demand that he surrender his ring and report ...more

Recommended to Austin by: Bought It On My Own.
The storyline published in Emerald Twilight came out just after I graduated from High School. Having been a GL fan for quite a while at that point, it was hard to accept that they killed off my favorite character, and even harder to accept that the story they did it with read more like a cop out and less like something well-planned. Only a year previous they had killed off Superman, both while the death's of Supergirl and The Flash were only a handful of years before that. The death was not the ...more

Si no es la mejor historia que leí de GL, le pega en el palo. Ok, no puedo ser objetivo porque la leí en la época en la que creía que los cambios que le hacían a los personajes eran definitivos, en la que la idea de "legado" en DC parecía ir en serio y en la que era raro ver masacres en comics mainstream. Pero además de mucha, muchísima violencia, también había un par de partes entre emotivas y oníricas muy bien logradas. La escena de la Ciudad Costera fantasma del principio de tomo ha de ser un ...more

Being completely new to the green lantern's universe I must say that...Hal Jordan kicks ass! There's a very strong dramatic arc going on here about the corruption and the, in my opinion justified rogue actions of the best Green Lantern of all. When he stated that, they do too much and gain nothing in return, I could understand what he meant. It's a great story and a great tragedy.

Como la portada está tomada del recopilatorio estadounidense, en la contratapa puede leerse erróneamente el ISBN correspondiente al tp original.

I love the idea, but wish they developed it more. They are turning one of their main superheroes bad, and it seemed super rushed, like they just couldn't wait to get Kyle Rayner out of his nine inch nails tshirt, and in the green lantern suit.

La storia è telefonata, ma non è brutta.
I disegni però sono penosi, anche per gli standard della prima uscita. Almeno per il capitolo finale (il #50) potevano affidarli ad un disegnatore non dico eccelso, ma almeno bravo.

It pains me to see my favorite Green Lantern take this path, but still worth reading. I recommend this to any comic book fan in general.
