Genuinely freaky and mind boggling. Where else could you read about a race of huge gila monsters that shoot shrinking rays from their eyes, dreams that turn eskimo sidekicks into seagulls, and a race that sleeps underground while their above ground projections of themselves turn evil because of a faulty chip? He's an interesting mix, Green Lantern, with a foothold in the modern urban world ala Superman and more than a foothold in the crazy future/time warp/alternate worlds storyline. Fickle heir ...more

Sometimes the things you loved as a child are better than you realized, and that is true of the stories in this collection. Green Lantern stories improve as they grow in number, thanks to the pre-Stan Lee visionary work of editor Julius Schwartz, writer John Broome, and artist Gil Kane. As the characters and complexity of this world expand, they richly inform each story and give me the feeling that this character has something special. Even a bad story, such as the clichéd last tale in this coll ...more

Finally, the original back story of Sinestro. It's so strange to see today's Green Lantern stories (the movie, new comics, the animated series) Sinestro is always seen as mostly a good guy. Yeah, he started out as a Green Lantern in the original story, but of course he reverted to villainy in a strive for power. Today, he's seen as a villain, but in the animated series he didn't even turn yellow, he remained a Green Lantern with evil intentions. Also, this volume contains the first appearance of ...more

The first appearance of Sinestro was in this volume along with more background on the Lantern Corps. Pretty good stuff. I find the old school comic style amusing. So many sentences end with !'s it's absurd. Also, some of the phrasing is weird too. Green Lantern is described a couple of times as being aroused. Also, some of the plots are hilarious. Only in a comic, or an old one for that matter, could this happen, "It's odd, Green Lantern! Biffy is a well-know crook, but he never pulled a bank jo ...more

Lessons Learned:
Evil villans are almost always bald!
The most difficult part of a superheroes life is managing his love life.
The answer for all problems, including uncovering secret indenties, is marriage. In fact the only thing females think about is marriage even if they are running a major aircraft corporation.
Don't sleep with your power ring on, you might turn your sterotyped sidekick into a bird.

This was just as good as The Green Lantern Chronicles, Vol. 1. I can't wait to get The Green Lantern Chronicles, Vol. 3.

An improvement over the first volume with more creative storytelling and the introduction of two of GL's greatest villains, Sinestro and Hector Hammond. The art is great, but the gender politics and racial sensitivity are still unfortunate.
