Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Handsomely produced companion piece to Ryan Reynolds'Green Lantern movie, this coffee table book blends commentary by behind-the-scenes talent with storyboard art, character sketches, concept art and still photos from the set." ~Wired

“A new book, Constructing Green Lantern: From Page to Screen, gives a kind of production diary that takes you through every stage of creating the movie’s weird vistas, alien landscapes and green energy constructs.” ~iO9.com

"For a Green Lantern fan, this is a must have, but what makes it a fascinating read is its ability to transcend just the fanbase. You don’t have to know a power battery from a car battery to be impressed (and educated) by this surprisingly thorough time capsule of Green Lantern’s first trip to the big screen." ~Hollywood.com
 
“Author Inguanzo, the films’ on-set Green Lantern expert and ‘Assets Manager,’ didn’t get the memo about writing fluffy movie tie-in books and actually wrote a detailed and intelligent production memoir, loaded with photos from the set, pre-viz art, storyboards and final composite images that at least prove that the filmmakers set out to do the character justice.” ~cartoonbrew.com
 
“Books like these can run the risk of becoming boring technical retellings, but Constructing avoids that problem by structuring the book to follow the plot of the film… It’s Inguanzo’s emphasis on story that makes Contructing a book you can actually sit down and read instead of just flipping through it looking for interesting bits.” ~bleedingcool.com

    If you love how movies are made, you'll love this book.

    A great read. A lot of insight into how they made the movie. Design, storyboards and more.
