Overview

Before he became the Green Lantern...before he unwittingly brought about the downfall of the Green Lantern Corps...before his rebirth as the universe's most powerful protector...Hal Jordan of Earth was just a washed-up test pilot with no way to fly...until the dying alien Abin Sur granted him his power ring, the most powerful weapon in the universe--and his entry into a reality he could never have imagined.

Hal Jordan's metamorphosis from cocky test pilot to the role of the intergalactic guardian Green Lantern makes its way to the big screen in June 2011 from Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by Martin Campbell(CASINO ROYALE) and starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

In preparation for his roll as Hal Jordan in "Green Lantern", Ryan Reynolds, who also contributes the introduction to this new edition, has pointed to Geoff Johns' GREEN LANTERN: SECRET ORIGIN as "his bible" for shaping his portrayal of Hal Jordan:
"Green Lantern encompasses a seemingly limitless supply of adventure."

This new edition includes several preview pages from Green Lantern: Rebirth and Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War.

Editorial Reviews

"Hal Jordan of Earth, you have the ability to overcome great fear. Welcome to the Green Lantern Corps." Before he became the new Green Lantern, Hal Jordan was just a washed-up earth test pilot, torn by broken vows and mental confusion. Green Lantern: Secret Origin reveals a man in the process of becoming a hero. Editor's recommendation. (Hand-selling tip: This new edition features a new cover and additional pages from Green Lantern: Rebirth, Sinestro Corp Special, and Green Lantern #25.)

Geoff Johns follows up the Sinestro Corps War with an amazing look at the beginning of Hal Jordan's career as Green Lantern and the end of the life of Hal's predecessor, Abin Sur. Seeing the beginnings of villains such as Sinestro, Hector Hammond, and Black Hand was great and conecting it all in some way to the Blackest Night is exciting. I look forward to each and every new trade. Great stuff!

Great for any green lantern fan. Not exactly in chronological order but still a good start.
