For the first time, The Final Night mini-series-along with the Parallax: Emerald Night one-shot that accompanied it-is collected in a single trade paperback volume. As skies darken, Superman's sun-based powers begin to fade, and the people of Earth begin to suffer food shortages and frozen conditions. When attempts to rekindle the sun fail, Green Lantern, Kyle Rayner seeks out former Green Lantern Hal Jordan-now known as Parallax-for help, setting events in motion that play out in Parallax: Emerald Night. Hal reconciles his past life as Green Lantern with his current role as Parallax, and, in the final chapter, makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the Earth.

I was hoping this would be really good considering the talent involved. Kesel, Marz, Immonen, & McKone and all talents that I enjoy today. Looking back at their work here from the mid-nineties am glad their work has evolved. Here we are given the problem of something that eats the sun called the Sun-eater. Makes sense. However, the danger always seemed a little generic and not terrifying as it really would be. The book was also short considering the premise. I was disappointed by the overall "hokeyness" that turned me off of DC Comics back then. Overall, there is no real reason to check this out other than getting a look at some comics veterans early work.
