    One thought on “Green Lantern, Vol. 1: Sinestro”

    1. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsI've never been a diehard Green Lantern fan. Honestly, Hal Jordan wasn't my favorite GL. I preferred Kyle Rayner back in the day, But with this New 52 Green Lantern, I'm learning to appreciate Hal for what he is and, even more startling, Sinestro!Listen, I know that last bit might sound silly to longtime GL fans, but for an on-again off-again GL reader like me, Sinestro was never more than the red guy who Hal Jordan always found a way to beat. Honestly, [...]

    2. Very good story, but I probably should have read Green Lantern: War of the Green Lanterns first.Yeah, as it turns out, I missed a huge chunk of important back story, so if you're thinking of just skipping ahead to the re-boot stuffn't.Any guesses as to what I'll be reading next?Even without knowing how Sinestro ended up as a Green Lantern, and Hal ended up needing Carol to co-sign a loan for him, this was a lot of fun to read. Recommended for fans of the Lanterns.

    3. Maybe not best volume to start my GL readings and my knowledge of Hal/Sinestro "relationship" was based mainly on Injustice series, but I really enjoied the story and the artworks were just awesome.First volume of many ones to come in my library, I guess.

    4. I'm only familiar with Green Lantern from other series he's been in. I've never tried reading his comics nor have I seen the movie. So, it was kind of annoying to find out that this isn't really a new start for the series, like the rest of the New 52 titles. Apparently I was supposed to read War of the Green Lanterns first. I guess that's why it felt like I was joining the story near the end. I mean, Green Lantern isn't even a Green Lantern anymore. Not the best start for this series, for me.The [...]

    5. Sinestro has just forcibly become part of the Green Lantern Corps again after being their enemy for an extended period, taking the opportunity to rid his homeworld Korugar of the Yellow Lantern army he created. But to do that, he needs to enlist the help of one man he barely tolerates yet secretly respects: Hal Jordan, who has left the GLC and is happily living a normal life and resuming his attempt at a relationship with Carol Ferris. Meanwhile, the Guardians of the Universe, creators of the GL [...]

    6. So I read Blackest Night and Brightest Day awhile back, but then got distracted by other comics that aren't fucking stupid. Admittedly, I would pretty much buy every book Doug Mahnke has ever drawn if it weren't for the fact that I like to save my money for comics that are less fucking stupid -- but a friend loaned me this one, so what the hell.And despite missing some backstory between volumes, I thought this was a pretty enjoyable read. It's not quite as fraught with the feeling that Geoff Joh [...]

    7. Bad plotting, bad dialogue, but good story ideas. Couldn't Johns just do outlines and hand over the creative duties to people with talent? Johns is writing Jordan like he's twelve - not just a broken *man*, but one who's ridiculously arrested. If I sat him down with a psychologist they might well diagnose him as retarded, as well as Narcissistic Personality Disorder.Johns also still hasn't learned the art of conveying information without a shovel. Mansplaining in the grossest terms - like two pa [...]

    8. When I first heard of the New 52 retcon of DC last year, I feared for the worst.That is, most of us will have to bear with origin retelling of the stories that we have been glued to and following for the past 5 years, or in most cases for the past decade, including major DC events like Inifinite Crisis, Final Crisis, the earth shattering and successful crisis of Blackest Night and the subsequent Brightest Day and not to mention the much polarized Flashpoint.But good thing for us Lantern readers, [...]

    9. Is it just me? Or did the New 52 reboot have no effect on the Green Lantern continuity? It seems that this series picks up right where it left off pre-Flashpoint. Which I am totally cool with because, of all the story-arcs since Final Crisis, the Green Lantern story-arcs were some of the best, and there was a lot of development in that universe that I would have hated to see disappear overnight.Geoff Johns writes another great, character-driven story for GL with this volume, "Sinestro". After de [...]

    10. I'll write a full review when I have the time, but for now here'sDAVE'S FINAL JUDGMENT - THE DEFENSE - Sinestro shines in the spotlight and is given more depth- Hal and Sinestro's buddy-cop routine is fun to read - Action sequences are well doneTHE PROSECUTION - Overall story is rather simplistic and lacks originality - Hal Jordan is a tad annoying this time around (actually, more than a tad) - Some characters feel shoe-horned in and contribute very little (I'm looking at you, Carol Ferris) - La [...]

    11. Graphic Novel Review by Kole for Book SakeLet 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 (b [...]

    12. Okay, this is not a 'Volume One,' in fact you probably need to read at least Green Lantern, Vol. 6: Secret Origin, Blackest Night, Blackest Night: Green Lantern, Blackest Night: Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern, Vol 9. Brightest Day, Green Lantern Corps, Vol. 8: The Weaponer, and Green Lantern: War of the Green Lanterns to understand how Sinestro Hal and Carol got to this point. This book is all about the mistakes the three characters have made and how they feel they should go about fixing the [...]

    13. This was actually pretty good! I liked the fact that this New 52 reboot is not a complete starting over of the franchise, but rather a natural continuation of the previous, pre-reboot volume War of the Green Lanterns. It was also a big relief for me to read this after the last two volumes (Green Lantern, Vol. 10: Brightest Day and the previously mentioned War of the Green Lanterns), which had earned only 3 and 2 stars, respectively.Looking forward to the next two volumes, The Revenge of Black Ha [...]

    14. Quite good. Hope Hal becomes a Green Lantern again. Glad to learn more about Sinestro. Glad they were able to stop the Sinestro Corps. Can't wait for the next one!!!

    15. To me reading this was like catching up with a friend I haven't seen since elementary school . . . probably because I haven't picked up a GL solo adventure since I was in elementary school.It went a little overboard in portraying Hal Jordan as a screw-up, but the humor worked for the most part. As far as Sinestro goes I can't wait for that pompous / arrogant @#$% to receive some sort of comeuppance. (It's his story as much as Jordan's, and only a few pages in I found his character to be very gra [...]

    16. Review originally posted here.Why I Read It: After reading and enjoying Batman vol 1: The Court of Owls, I decided to try to read as many of the New 52 titles as possible (though I'm kind of aiming for them all, if I can.) Back when I read comics on a regular basis, Green Lantern was one of my favourites, so I decided to read it next. I will be divulging minor spoilers here, so read with caution if that bothers you. :D I felt a little let-down by this title, but I'm not entirely sure why. I've n [...]

    17. Of all the DC hero stories, I think that Green Lantern has to have the deepest in terms of lore and scope. I mean, Hal is a galactic cop whose sector, one of thousands, has just him--a single being equipped to protect and serve everybody. In this case, Sinestro takes center stage, and as the New 52 reboots around Hal, this one doesn't offer the fresh start that the others titles do and while lots of exciting and appropriately large-scale things happen, this first volume of Green Lantern seems a [...]

    18. This is a review for the Geoff Johns New 52 Green Lantern run, which spans three volumes.To give perspective to my experience of these issues, I have to preface my review with the statement that this was my first experience with Green Lantern.Although the "messages" of Green Lantern, as well as the "emotional spectrum" can be somewhat cheesy, at least written by Johns (since that's what my experience is limited to), I find them immensely appealing. In a genre dominated by millionaires (e.g. Bruc [...]

    19. The worst decision DC editors have made in the last 20 years- and yes, there have been too, too many- is to allow the use of lethal force in the Green Lantern Corps. DC Comics seemed to have always been able to pride itself on the fact that their heroes refused to kill their enemies. Where the villains would be the killers, the heroes would never resort to lethal force. At least in the core character titles like Superman, Green Lantern, Batman, etc. It separated them from Marvel in the 80's and [...]

    20. The art was better than a good bit of the New 52 stuff that I have read so far. It's not at the top with Ardian Syaf's or Ed Benes' work on Batgirl, but it is in the top half of the art I've seen coming out of DC in the last few years. Doug Mahnke's characters all have good looking faces and are easily distinguished from each other. Of course, there aren't a lot of human characters in the volume, but even the Guardians have their own uniquely individual faces. All of the weird alien creatures lo [...]

    21. Be warned: even though it's a New 52 title, you really need to have read the prior Green Lantern event, War of the Green Lanterns. It seems DC chickened out of rebooting the entire line and allowed the Green Lantern books to continue on as though nothing had happened. Sure, you could tackle it anyways, but don't expect anything to be explained, or for this to be an origin story. That said, it can be a fun read. Hal Jordan is now without a ring, and Sinestro is a Green Lantern again. This leads, [...]

    22. As a collector of (solely) Superman comics when I was younger, Green Lantern was a hero I was always interested in. During the Reign of Superman story--following his death--I read when Coast City was wiped out and ended up getting the three Emerald Night comics when Hal Jordan became Parallax. Fast forward to now, I've gone back and digitally read every Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corp, and Emerald Warrior comic since that event. I was not disappointed in that time and expense investment.I led [...]

    23. Geoff Johns has always handled the Green Lantern mythos well, injecting life into the series in terms of characters and storylines and making character conflicts realistic. His recent work on "Aquaman" was astounding and he doesn't fail to deliver in "Green Lantern" either.Following the events of the "War of the Green Lanterns," Hal Jordan is stripped of his ring; a shocking moment which made my jaw drop. Could this be the end? No. Green Lantern follows Sinestro a character made so realistic by [...]

    24. You know, as a character I really hate Sinestro, but I love this story. Geoff Johns at his craft again, and he puts on a spectacular show. Sinestro is one of those characters that you love to hate, and as such he has a marvelously complex back story with all kinds of fun twisty places to entangle a plot. The very thought of Hal Jordan trying to give up the Green Lantern mantel and trying to live without being a hero is as strange as Sinestro trying to be a hero again. Except is quite as simple a [...]

    25. An interesting reboot, Hal Jordan is a bit of a doofus/fuck up here. I don't read enough GL to know if that's the usual way he is or not. Sinestro comes across as the one with his shit together. It's also a great idea to team them up like a buddy cop movie, except one where they don't really bond at all. I think it for sure adds something to the mix. I look forward to more of this book, especially the Sinestro character and the dynamic. Well done yet again Geoff Johns.

    26. Although this book could have done with some flashback to just exactly why Hal Jordan is no longer part of the Green Lantern Corps, Johns crafts a really action packed tale. Sinestro is reinstated as a Green Lantern, and enlists the help of Jordan to get revenge on Sinestro's former corps members. Kept my interest throughout, and the art by Doug Mahnke is just great.

    27. This book is really good. Geoff Johns continues to prove everything he writes is worthy of reading.

    28. Wow- this is almost as good as Geoff's Aquaman run! In this volume he does everything right in reestablishing the character and story, while staying true and loyal to everything we love about GL in the first place!
