Product Description

Writer Geoff Johns continues to reestablish the Green Lantern as one of the greatest heroes in the universe, with the help of artists Carlos Pacheco, Ethan Van Sciver and Ivan Reis.

Hal Jordan—the Green Lantern of sector 2814—has much to atone for. Possessed by an alien entity, Jordan once dismantled the entire Green Lantern Corps, killing many friends in the process.

Now he has regained the trust of his friends and allies and is rebuilding his life as a member of the Corps, a defender of Earth and a human being.

But fate won’t let Jordan move beyond his past. The Green Lanterns Jordan thought he had killed may still be alive…and crying for his blood.

Now, to save the missing Lanterns, Jordon will travel deep into the heart of enemy territory and take on yet another threat from his past. But if he survives, the reward my be much greater than just redemption….

This volume collects Green Lantern issues #7-13.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow start, great finish 5 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Carrying on the build up to the Sinestro corps war, this volume starts off with nothing to do with that story arc? A couple of issues of Hal teaming up with Green Arrow having a scrap with Monguls son. Nothing too exciting, but the real action kicks off again once Hal and Guy go to the home planet of the Manhunters and find Green Lanterns who they previously thought were dead. Great action and character development and a good taster of things to come with the Sinestro corps war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before & After... 19 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great read in the continuing saga of Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps.

A bit hard to place this in your DC library as -
- the first half of the book deals with a lead up to Infinite Crisis - as both Green Lantern & Green Arrow take on Mongul following his clash with Supes & Bats
+ a great GL & Batman team - up, as they finally reconcile their differences.
- the second half follows the Infinite Crisis events, as Hal Jordan tracks down the GL Corps members he believed he had killed when he was Parallax! + Sinestro begins to recruit his own Corps members!

Together with some great artwork - this is a recommended read & a worthy addition to your library, wherever you decide to place it.

Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than No fear 9 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great standalone green lantern adventure and also a very nice addition to the DCU at this time, hinting at "blackest night", and also wrapping up some storylines from rebirth, must read if you have Rebirth and No Fear. Awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL WORTH IT FOR THE MAIN STORYLINE 12 Dec. 2006
By Tim Janson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Green Lantern: Revenge of the Green Lanterns is a somewhat uncommon collection in as much as the seven issues it collects (#7 - 13) don't contain a solitary storyline the way most hardcover or trade paperback collections do. There are three distinct storylines although I suppose you could make a case for them being loosely tied together if you really reach.

The opening story finds Green Lantern and Green Arrow battling the children of Superman Arch-villain Mongul as they have come to claim the Earth in the name of their late father. The story isn't significant so much for the battle against the pair but rather the back-story of how Hal and Ollie see their lives after they've been infected by Mongul's alien plant known as Black Mercy.

The second story arc finds Hal teaming with Batman against a foe known as the Tattooed Man who can bring his tattoos to life. Again, this minor threat isn't the main thrust of the story but rather it's the mending of the relationship between Batman and Green Lantern after the events in Infinite Crisis. Much life most of DC's other superhero titles, Green Lantern is getting re-booted with a clean slate so to speak.

Finally we get to the title story arc. When the Green Lantern Tomar Tu, thought killed by Hal in the whole Parallax storyline, comes crashing to Earth in his spaceship he mutters that he will kill Hal Jordan. Back on the home world of the Guardians, Hal recalls those terrible events in which he killed several fellow Green Lanterns which still earns him much distrust in the Green Lantern Corps. Hal believes that perhaps the others he thought were dead may still be alive and wants to investigate, but the sector, known as Blackest Night, home of the artificial beings known as the Manhunters is off limits and Hal is denied.

Of course, he goes anyway, joined by Guy Gardner, off to the Manhunter's world known as Biot. They discover thousands of Manhunters being created including hulking behemoths known as Highmasters that use Green Lanterns as batteries and amplify their powers by a hundredfold. But who the mastermind behind the Manhunters is the real surprise.

While I could give or take the first two stories, the Revenge of the Green Lanterns arc was extremely well done. It's a rousing superhero tale at its best with great villains and the return of many friends we thought long gone. Geoff Johns is one of the best pure superhero writers around and proves it again. It's obvious how much he respects the characters, a rare thing these days. Credit also artist Carlos Pacheco whose jumping-off-the-page action recalls fond memories of Neal Adams at his peak. The book may not be worthy of a hardcover, but it is a very solid collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong 9 Mar. 2007
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Infinite Crisis mastermind Geoff Johns' rebooting of Green Lantern is still going strong with this collection. Revenge of the Green Lanterns collects several storylines as Hal Jordan is still reconnecting with his old life of being a super hero. Beginning with a team up with his best friend Oliver Queen, AKA Green Arrow, against the children of Mongul who are hellbent on Earth's destruction, the story then shifts to a team up between Hal and Batman. This story is surprisingly poignant as we witness the reconnection between the two heroes who had fallen out of favor with each other since the events of Green Lantern: Rebirth and beyond. From that point on, we get to the heart of the story as Hal gets a big surprise when the Lanterns thought to have been killed by him when he became Paralax make a stunning return. This leads to another team up, this time with fellow GL Guy Gardner, as the two Lanterns head to uncharted regions and battle Manhunters, as well as the mastermind behind it all. There's nothing really spectacular with Revenge of the Green Lanterns, but Johns weaves a great super hero story that is quite fun indeed. Carlos Pacheco, along with Ethan Van Sciver and Ivan Reis, once again provide great art as well. All in all, if you're looking for a more than solid Green Lantern story, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Green Lantern stories... 12 Jan. 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
First off,I will recommend this book as a companion to the awesome Green Lantern Rebirth.

It's a great follow up which shows GL's relationships with other heroes,primarily Batman and Green Arrow,as well as the Green Lantern Corps whom he destroyed years ago when he was the evil Parallax.

Great art is provided by Carlos Pacheco,Ethan Van Sciver(Rebirth)and the amazing Ivan Reis who pencils the title story.

This graphic novel is a must read for any new GL fan or GL fan in general.It has great character interaction as well as loud and widescreen intergalactic action.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Entry Point into Green Lantern 3 Jan. 2010
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This volume collects issues #7-13 of the current Green Lantern comic helmed by Geoff Johns, and is the second book in the series following Green Lantern (Book 1): No Fear (or third, if you slot in the mini-series Green Lantern: Rebirth as the one that re-started it all). Featured artists include Ivan Reis, Ethan Van Sciver and Carlos Pacheco.

As stated in the title, I found this volume to be a great starting point for getting into the current Green Lantern mythos. I had grabbed this on a whim one night off the magazine rack at a video rental store, and was sorely impressed by the material despite not knowing much prior Green Lantern history. This is one of Geoff Johns' strengths as a writer - despite references to heavy continuity, such as Hal Jordan's turn to evil in the 90's Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight & A New Dawn story line, Johns is able to boil history down to its essentials, encapsulate it for the reader, and move on. Where others use simple editors notes (ie. "See Green Lantern Vol. 3 #50) or lengthy dialogue recaps, here quick flashback panels built into the narrative illustrate history by the easiest way to understand it - visually. In other instances, history isn't explained because it's not important to the story - the Black Mercy Plant made famous by the Superman tale "For the Man Who Has Everything" reappears here to great use, but you lose nothing if you've never read the original classic (collected in DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore and other places). Similarly, the Black Mercy is only here because villain Mongul stole it in the first chapter of Infinite Crisis, but again that's a tangent that doesn't apply to the story being told.

And yes, "Revenge of the Green Lanterns" arguably works better than "Rebirth" and "No Fear" as a gateway book, mostly because it eliminates the requisite continuity knowledge of the former and raises the stakes much, much higher than the latter. The first two chapters feature the classic Green Lantern/Green Arrow team facing Mongul and the Black Mercy, followed by a revealing and often humorous character study as Green Lantern teams up with Batman and mends fences with him. The book then skips ahead One Year Later (a jump followed by all DC titles during that period) with the mission to rescue a group of lost lanterns and confront one of Green Lantern's great enemies. The artwork by Ivan Reis here is especially impressive and beautifully inked and coloured - a precursor to the epic pages of Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Vol. 1 down the line.

If you haven't gotten into one of the best superhero titles on the market, this volume is an easy and highly recommended place to start. And it only gets better from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebirth - Blackest Night Chronology 23 Dec. 2014
By Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like most guys in my neighborhood I grew up in the 1960's reading comic books. Having a youthful "edgy" taste in storytelling I gravitated primarily towards Marvel. As I got older and a lot more world-weary I drifted back to DC comics. It took me a few years to stumble across the GL re-launch, but once I did, what an amazing story just waiting to be "binged" upon. From "Rebirth" to "Blackest night" it was one hell of a ride. Below is the TPB reading order I followed, there may be errors or omissions, but at least it's a starting point for those interested. Enjoy!
