This volume reprints issues 39-47 of DC Comics' Green Lantern Corps, the issues involved with the Blackest Night event. The story appears to follow straight on from the previous GL Corps collection / issues, with the Black Lantern rings appearing almost immediately, and the story being almost one continuous battle, involving sub-sets of the main characters, resolving some sub-plots from previous issues (and setting up some new ones), and eventually ending up on Earth for the climax of the Blackest Night. The final issue in the volume involved the clean-up on Oa, with the Lanterns giving the Guardians an instruction to rewrite the rule banning relationships between Green Lanterns.

The Green Lantern corps (obviously) concentrates on the lantern corps and their role as a whole in this battle for survival as the blackest night shines over the DC Universe. This is'nt really a must buy to understand the whole blackest night story as the Blackest Night and Blackest Night Green Lantern graphic novels really are, but it fills in the gaps, gives a good background look on the entire lanterns universe as it is turned upside down. The writing is good for it's characters and the artwork is just as admirable, it isn't as good as the work of Geoff Johns or Ivan Reis but nontheless I throughly enjoyed this and found it as a good tie-in to the blackest night series, I would reccomend this to fill you in on the background if you are considering the other two main stories.

YEt to read the entire book because Blackest Night: Green Lantern hasn't arrived, but one thing to say is they arranged the three main books in the most complicated way - you have to flick back and forth between them to get a sense of what is going on.

Having said that, the artwork is higher than tyhe usual standard in Corps books, and the fight scences intence. Definitely worth a read.

This graphic novel is based on the Green Lantern Corps defending their home planet of OA against the black lanterns. This novel is action packed and the artwork is okay but the overall story is mediocre. It's probably one of the best GLC novels in Peter J. Tomasi's run, the rest of the GLC novels are poor-mediocre but I'm probably only saying that because I'm not a fan of his writing. Sure I enjoy the way he writes the characters (especially Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner) but I find most his GLC stories to be kind of underwhelming. Also Patrick Gleason is not a bad artist but compared to the likes of other artists who have worked on Green Lantern over the years such as Ivan Reis and Doug Mahnke, Gleason's artwork just ends up looking kind of cartoony. I only recommend this graphic novel to hardcore Green Lantern fans and for those who want to collect the entire Blackest Night series.

I really enjoyed this book. Brilliant cosmic battles & it shows how the Blackest Night saga impacted the Green Lanterns. This book has to be read if you follow the Blackest Night saga.

Great book as I knew it would be. I am now awaiting Blackest Night Tales of the Corps to complete my set.

Blackest Night: Green Lantern Corps

One of the must have's for DC's Blackest Night hardback collection.

The Green Lantern Corp & their homeworld Oa come under direct attack from the Black Lanterns.
Can the Green Lantern's fight their former dead comrades?
...+ the return of the Anti-Monitor!

Excellant summer reading - which is a shame when i don't understand Amazon's insistance that these books aren't available until Sept/October?
They are freely available in all good comic book shops, & even some Waterstones. (Sorry, Amazon)
