Green Lantern:Rebirth

Taken from Wikipeda:
Green Lantern: Rebirth was a six-issue monthly American comic book limited series written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Ethan Van Sciver. Published by DC Comics between October 2004 and May 2005, the series featured characters from throughout the sixty year history of Green Lantern comics.

The storyline follows the "rebirth" of the Silver Age Green Lantern Hal Jordan as he overcomes fear itself in the form of the cosmic entity Parallax. The series starred various members of the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps, including Alan Scott, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart and Guy Gardner. It revived elements of the Green Lantern mythos including the Guardians of the Universe, Kilowog and the villain Sinestro, while introducing new concepts such as the emotional spectrum.

Rebirth is the first part of a trilogy in the Green Lantern storyline, with 2007's "Sinestro Corps War", which was produced by Johns, Ivan Reis and Van Sciver, as the second part. Blackest Night, whose foundations are laid in the conclusion of "Sinestro Corps War", is the third and final part and will be released in 2009.

TOTALLY been geeking out this past week. This was my 1st time venturing into DC comics, and i must say, this ish was AWESOME. The whole Green Lantern concept is pretty effing sweet, and I would recommend checking this out to anyone that has a mild interest in comics.

High Point: Hal Jordan clocking Batman in the teeth ala Chucky Ham's K.O. chick

Low Point: Queer group chant by the Green Lantern Corp. VERY DC & VERY queer.

Overall: 3.5 out of 5
