Overview

A New York Times Bestseller! The Guardians of the Universe have gone mad! To preserve order, they have decided that all free will must be eradicated by their new Third Army - emotionless drones whose sole purpose is to convert living creatures into soulless beings like themselves.

How can the Green Lanterns stand against them? Hal Jordan is dead, Guy Gardner has been stripped of his ring and his powers, and John Stewart and Kyle Rayner have been called into deep space on seemingly impossible missions.

The remaining ring-wielders - along with a most unexpected new human Green Lantern - will unite to take on the mad Guardians. But will their desperate assault unleash an even greater evil…?

The beginning of the end of the Green Lantern universe starts here! GREEN LANTERN: RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY features the work of fan favorite writers Geoff Johns (JUSTICE LEAGUE), Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAND AND ROBIN), Peter Milligan (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK) and Tony Bedard (BLUE BEETLE) and an all-star team of artists including Doug Mahnke (FINAL CRISIS), Miguel Sepulveda (STORMWATCH), Fernando Pasarin (BATGIRL), Aaron Kuder (SUPERMAN) and more!  
 This collection freatures the entire RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY storyline from GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1, GREEN LANTERN #13-16, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #13-16, GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #13-16, RED LANTERNS #13-16, and GREEN LANTERN CORPS ANNUAL #1.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/30/2013
This massive hardcover collects four issues, each with four different, related series, plus two annuals, during which a whole bunch of Green (and differently colored) Lanterns fight their founders, the little blue Guardians. The wizened oldsters have created a Third Army (after the Manhunters and the Green Lantern Corps) of mindless, soulless drones much like zombies or the Borg, converting their victims into beings like themselves. The art is focused more on fight scenes and action poses than storytelling or character development. At times, the images are explained by characters narrating events to each other, a help to puzzling out what's shown. Various factions are plotting and battling against each other, and keeping them all straight requires background reading beyond this book. Readers uninterested in the sprawling continuity may find the actions of Simon Baz, the newest Green Lantern, more interesting. He's Arab-American and a suspected terrorist, and although this is his first major story, most of his origin is told outside the volume. He's the only character a new reader can hang onto, as most of the book involves cliffhangers in the lives of Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, and a variety of rage-driven, blood-spewing Red Lanterns.
