Review by schatzi
Although I'm mostly a Marvel fan, I've been trying to get into DC Comics for a while now (mainly so I'll have more comics to read, since I tend to devour them so quickly). I figured that this would be a good place to jump into Green Lantern. Well...I'm not sure.There was a lot of stuff thrown at the reader at once. I know that this is an attempt to get Hal Jordan back into favor in the DC Universe, so a lot of continuity is almost a must to please the fanboys. But it makes getting into the character quite a chore. Plus I really didn't find myself liking the character of Hal Jordan much at all. He's cocky and something of a jerk; at least, that's how it felt in this comic. I'm not giving up on Green Lantern quite yet; I'll be picking up some more issues and hoping that I can get into the series by sheer force of will. But I really didn't think that this is worthy of all of the rave reviews that it's received in the comic book world. Maybe if I had been a Green Lantern fan from the beginning, or at least for decades, I'd feel differently. But comic book writers really need to have some jumping on points for new fans, too, if they want to attract new readers.

Johns' writing has gotten much better as he's gotten older; for a moment in comics that is so important, the writing in this collection is fairly awful.
