    Know The Story of Green Lantern Before You Begin

    Graphic Novel Review by Kole for Book Sake
    Let me start of by saying Green Lantern is my favorite superhero by far. But this book has the same issue as with all of The New 52’s. It's still pretty much a continuation of an old series or storyline. It starts off with Green Lantern being exiled from the corps, and Sinestro had been reinstated, but it never showed this happening, probably because it happened in another book (that some people may not have read). Obviously I'll continue to read it (because I love Green Lantern) and understand it, but it still frustrates me that they don’t give anything an actual fresh start. They just slap on the words "The New 52" and continue selling the same stuff. As a fan, yeah, it’s a good book. I feel like if I review anything by DC that's labeled "The New 52" I’m going to be complaining about this.
    Book Rating: 4/5

    Graphic Novel Review by Chris for Book Sake
    This is the 5th of DC’s New 52 re-launched novels I’ve read and I've got to say it’s been a really soft re-launch. I know who Green Lantern is, I used to watch the Justice League cartoon when I was a kid and I saw the new movie, but I had no idea what was going on in this book.

    I was thinking the book was about Hal Jordan (aka Ryan Reynolds) but it seemed more about Sinestro. By the way Sinestro is a good guy. Oh yeah, Green Lantern isn’t a Green Lantern anymore. I’m not spoiling anything, that’s how the book starts off.

    I am sure this book is a decent continuation of the Blackest Night and Brightest Day stories, but since I didn’t read those I feel like I am starting on book 3 of 3 part story. Even worse, I may be starting on book 100.

    It isn’t really all bad. It is a superhero story after all, what’s to really know? Big bad, big good, big muscles, and big fights. The art was average superhero fare. Current readers will dig it, new readers will have to ingest some back story to even figure out why some events matter, let alone care about them.
    Book Rating: 2/5

    In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night!

    Green Lantern has become one of my favorite superheroes.
    The art is great (except for the last issue of this first volume, but to each their own..) and the story was fun.
    Sinestro and Jordan make for a very interesting team-up.
    My only criticism is that for much of this volume to make sense you would have to have already read War of the Green Lanterns, which takes place shortly before.

    Having been the first comic book I've ever read, I was a bit los

    Having been the first comic book I've ever read, I was a bit lost. My previous experience with Green Lantern came from the old Justice League cartoon (John Stewart) and the recent movie. This definitely is not the place to start with this hero. Good story and all, just gives you very minimal back story.
