DC Comics really did a disservice to this book and its readers. This collection is part of the mega huge event known as Blackest Night. The individual issues of this basically take place in between issues of the main Blackest Night series. So, each chapter of this basically jumps all over the place. It is not a fluent story whatsoever. DC needed to collect all the issues together not just this. It is very hard to tell chapter to chapter as what is going on and why its important. The art, mostly by Doug Mahnke, is good but the Black Lantern version of many characters are so undistinguishable its hard to tell who's who and why it matters. Overall, DC made a mess. This entire collection, which isn't all here, is good. Here however its just some sequential issues.

Let me say that I love Johns' GL and all the Sinestro Corps War stuff but this trade just didn't have enough meat to it. I did really like some of the complete tales like the Kyle vs. Parallax and the Superman-Prime one. Other than that it was eating appettizers instead of a meal. Overall, nothing vital to the story and not enough to reread.

Another exciting story prelude to the Blackest Night. The origin of the Orange Lantern corps aka Agent Orange. The Story opens with Hal Jordan, Green lantern of sector 2184, returning back to OA and being questioned as to why he is wearing a blue ring. When the Guardians discover who conceived the idea, they are more than ready to unleash the Avarice of Agent Orange. Also, the side stories involving John Stewart engaging a Star Sapphires with their passion and Lantern Ask and Saarek looking for the Body of the Anti-monitor and stumble upon a terror that they wish they hadn't. A special bonus pages showcase the different lantern corps and gives the names of members except the ones that have yet to be revealed. In all, a really great book and such a bold rich stores that makes you want to read more!

This is part of the prelude to the Blackest Night arc in the DC Universe. For those joining us with no knowledge, here is a quick rundown. The Lanterns are actually powered by emotions. The Gaurdians supressed there emotions which is what caused the other rings to be created. Green stands for Willpower. You have to have a strong sense of Will to be an enforcer of good in the Universe. Sidestro created the Yellow Corps. based off of Fear. Evil always seems to do that, don't they. The Blue Corps. uses Hope. Never give that up. Red Corps. is based off of Rage. (GRRRRRRR). And now we have Agent Orange (only one, read to find out)based off of Greed. But there is a bit more to it. You may think that emotions behind the Lantern's power is weak, but it plays off very well. If you think about it, you never see a Green lantern use their ring for other purposes. This was a great read and informative, especially if you are following, or want some background on the Blackest Night Arc. Who knows, wanting more isn't a bad thing sometimes.

It can not be viewed on the iPad even with the Nook app. Of course, B&N did not make that clear before I ordered....I feel like I just got screwed
