Summary from Goodreads.
Well this was simply amazing.
This has got to be my favourite volume out of all the Rebirth titles that I have read, and yes that includes Detective Comics. Everything just seemed to work in here. When I reviewed the first volume of Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps, I said that “I have always been torn about the Green Lanterns; I love that they are space based and are very selfless. But I have to date, never found a story about the Green Lanterns that has gotten me excited for them.”, but I can now say that I have found the Green Lantern story that I have been wanting.
Lets start off with the story, we follow Hal and Kyle going off on their own mission from the Guardians of the Universe. Whilst they are away find hope, the Green Lanterns team up with the Sinestro Corps to bring order to the galaxy. They team on Green Lantern with one Yellow Lantern per sector to find the rogue Yellow Lanterns. Whilst more does happen than just this, trust me in saying that you should read it for yourself.
I have constantly been amazed with the art style used in both Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps and Green Lanterns in Rebirth; it must be so difficult balancing the amount of green used with other green. Even though they manage this, that does not account for the actual style used and fortunately they got this right as well. If the text was taken away, it would not have been too difficult to tell what was going on which in my mind is absolutely paramount to how the story is told.
If you have not read the previous 2 volumes of Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps, or if you do not want to, then this is a great place to read what is one of the best stories in DC Rebirth.
