Format: Paperback
Name the greatest, most famous superheroes of all time, and you'll turn to DC Comics. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman; EVERYONE knows who they are. Turn to Marvel Comics, and you'll get Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man etc.

Turn back to DC Comics and you'd probably struggle to name more legendary heroes. The Flash comes to mind, and maybe does Aquaman. But the Green Lantern is another of DC's most famous - and overlooked - champions.

For those who are unfamiliar, Green Lantern is the name given to an intergalactic guardian. Many of whom form the Green Lantern Corps, founded by the immortal Guardians of the planet Oa. Charged with incredibly powerful rings that can turn imagination into total reality, the Green Lanterns uphold peace throughout the galaxy.

There have been several beings (human and extraterrestrial) to wield power as the Green Lantern i.e. Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kilowog, but the man who has the distinction of being the greatest Green Lantern of them all...was one Hal Jordan.

A U.S. Air Force Pilot, Jordan was essentially a man without fear (before Daredevil even!). Created by Gil Kane, this version of Green Lantern was revered and loved, until 1994 when DC Comics decided to turn Hal Jordan into the cosmic, genocidal villain Parallax (starting in the controversial Emerald Twilight), went on a mad, killing spree, destroyed several of his fellows, the Guardians, arch-nemesis Sinestro, tried to remake all of reality in the "Zero Hour" crossover, before ultimately choosing to sacrifice himself to save reality and achieve redemption as the Spectre, the spirit of vengeance.

Confusing? Tarnishing? Just plain stupid?

Format: Paperback
I wasn't totally sure what to expect when I decided to get Green Lantern: Rebirth. I was wondering whether I would fully understand it as this was the very first Green Lantern book I had ever picked up. Having read the previous reviews saying that this does not matter I decided to give it a try.

I was very pleased that I did, at no point did I need to question what was happening as the quality of writing was so good. The few questions I did have were swiftly answered. A top novel with amazing artwork throughout.

Highly recommend this to either people like me who have never read a Green Lantern novel before or people that are fans already. Enjoyable from start to finish, my first Green Lantern novel and certainly not my last.

Let me start by saying this is probably the best Green Lantern graphic novel if not the best graphic novel overall that I have read so far. The story is amazing and you don't feel like putting it down, the artwork is stunning too. This graphic novel is built up of issues from both the Green Lantern and Green Lantern corps comics, so if you haven't been following the story from previous volumes you will most likely be confused. I would recommend reading all the Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps graphic novels from Rebirth onwards as it is the events from these graphic novels that set the stage for The Sinestro Corps War. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I will just say that this graphic novel is both action packed and has a great story to go with it. I would recommend this as a must have for any Green Lantern fan.
