Good enough story, just not really into DC that much. The artwork was well done though.

Started reading the New 52. I'm not sure how I feel about comic companies completely starting over with a reboot. I think I like it because it gives a good starting point for folks who don't want try to catch up with 50 years worth of continuity.

However, a little bit of research into Green Lantern, I found this series wasn't entirely rebooted, and is actually a continuation. It did appear to have a past, at least.

I enjoyed this, with Sinestro as the lead, and a sort of good guy. (He's a good guy the same way that Doctor Doom is a good guy).

I think that it's also cool that he and the rest of the GLC. were not (as far as I can tell) really touched be the whole "let do a world wide reboot again and add the wildstorm folks too.". I guess the little blue men made it clear not to mess with them, which in turn got them all killed.

I had always considered "Green Lantern" one of the least appealing major super heroes from the Marvel and DC universes, but now late in life I'm reconsidering my position. This compilation brings to life the best aspects of the space operatic nature of the title, and the antagonistic working relationship between flaky Hal Jordan and the extremely arrogant Sinestro worked for me. Also, beautiful artwork that makes the most of the colour-based powers in the story to craft eye-popping visuals. I recommend it!

Building on the story set in motion in "Green Lantern: Rebirth", Hal & Sinestro are united as partners of necessity. This is slowly winding down Geoff Johns' incredible run on this title.

Geoff Johns did very well in keeping Green Lantern less influenced by the new 52 (I personally think the new 52 is a major disappointment). Anyways, the return of Sinestro as a GL is an interesting new twist. You should read up on war of the GL and war of GL aftermath to fully understand WHY Sinestro has returned as a GL. The artwork is really fantastic and detailed. My main problem with this graphic novel is that some of the dialogue between Carol Ferris and Hal seems out of character. The same goes for Sinestro. It isn't a BIG deal, but I found myself scratching my head saying "Would Hal REALLY say that?"

Just more evidence that Geoff Johns is probably the best writer in mainstream comics.

Of the various corners of the DC universe affected by the pointless reboot that is the New 52, the Green Lantern books seem to be less influenced. This picks up with a status where Hal Jordan has been kicked out of the Corps and Sinestro is back in. The two adversaries find themselves working together when Jordan gets an offer he can't refuse. All right for what it is, but I've seen cosmic stories done much, much better.

Seeing Sinestro as a Green Lantern again is very interesting but as far as the story line goes, it isn't all that great. Geoff Johns has definitely written Green Lantern better.
