Overview

The sold out 6-issue miniseries event of 2004-2005 — written by Geoff Johns (BLACKEST NIGHT, TEEN TITANS) with art by Ethan Van Sciver and Prentis Rollins — is available in this new edition, complete with the preview story from Wizard Magazine as well as a number of extras previously only available in ABSOLUTE GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH!

Hal Jordan was considered the greatest Green Lantern of them all. But Jordan lost control, allowed himself to be corrupted and transformed into the villainous Parallax. Later, Jordan reappeared and made the ultimate sacrifice — a sacrifice that allowed him to become the Spectre, the Wrath of God.

After several years of activity on Earth, The Spectre became restless and sought a way to prove himself worthy of that noble reputation. See how a man born without fear and seeking to rebuild his life, puts cosmic forces into motion that will have repercussions not only on Earth but across the universe. This volume sets up the events of BLACKEST NIGHT and revitalized Green Lantern as one of the most important heroes of the DCU!

This is where I first started reading Green Lantern and was drawn into an incredible universe. The rebirth of Hal Jordan is truly remarkable and memorable. After falling from grace, Hal Jordan returns to his former glory as the hero we all known him as. Geoff Johns writing and every artist involved have made Green Lantern: Rebirth one of the best Green Lantern stories.

How on Earth can Geoff Johns take one of the most convoluted histories in comics and making it make sense and making it thrilling all the while dropping seeds for payoffs 5 years down the line? I guess the simple answer is, he's an incredible writer. Throw terrific art work into it and you have a fantastic read!

Green Lantern: Rebirth ties up loose plot lines and reveals answers to questions that have plagued Green Lantern fans for decades, such as what really is the story behind the power ring¿s impurity and its vulnerability to yellow, as well as some startling new information about GL¿s arch-enemy Sinestro. No one re-tools their major characters like DC, due in part to their own lack of confidence in the character often times. And no one has had a bumpier ride in recent years than poor Hal Jordan. Seeing Coast City destroyed Hal tries to recreate it leading to a conflict with the Guardians, and Hal¿s usurping the power of the central battery to become Parallax, destroying most of the Guardians and other Green Lanterns, before finally sacrificing himself to save Earth¿s sun. Hal would then become bonded with the Spectre as the new Spirit of Vengeance. All of the surviving Green Lanterns play a role in the book including Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, Killowog, and yes, even Guy Gardner. While off at the edges of space Kyle learns finds an alien race living in terror. His ring translates the name ¿Parallax¿. Kyle returns to Earth as he and the other Green Lanterns soon come under the influence of a menacing influence. Guy Gardner even has his body turned inside out as he¿s taken for treatment to the JLA and Mr. Terrific. Meanwhile Hal is having his own problems controlling the Spectre¿s thirst for vengeance which is growing more and more aggressive, literally turning the hand of the villain ¿Black Hand¿ to coal. The Justice League is growing suspicious of Hal as well, particularly Batman who has never had a great affinity for Jordan to begin with. Soon the appearance of Ganthet, the last of the original Guardians, brings some startling revelations about the history of the Guardians, Parallax, the power rings, Sinestro, and the source of the impurity. I won¿t play spoiler and reveal and of this, but the words astonishing and shocking come to mind right off the bat. You know of course that Hal returns as Green Lantern and has his first formal introduction to the man who replaced him, Kyle Rayner. He also has a long overdue confrontation with Batman who still doesn¿t trust him. In many ways, this is Kyle Rayner¿s finest hour as he provides the first warnings about Parallax, and takes on a supped-up Sinestro on his own¿just in time for Hal to return, not to mention Guy Gardner. Long time Green Lantern fans are sure to be ecstatic about the return of one of the original Silver Age icons as they never really took to Rayner or Stewart and Gardner was generally only good for a few laughs. How DC handles Hal (not to mention the Spectre) from here on out becomes the new question. The story wraps up nicely and for a change we have a story that doesn¿t leave issues dangling. The Story was written by Geoff Johns, one of the most stalwart and reliable scribes in comics today. The art by Art by Ethan Van Sciver and Prentis Rollins was very solid without being too ¿showy¿. The hardcover book also provides background information and creator commentary on various aspects of the story which also serve to help tie things all together. A gallery of alternate covers is also included. Green Lantern: Rebirth is without a doubt one of the most important storylines from DC in recent years. Reviewed by Tim Janson

For those lovers of the Green Lantern and DCU in general, the return of the greatest Emerald champion ever has come, and is going to be one hell of a show between the last green corps and the one who destryoed them in the first place...Parallax!
