New 52 Green Lantern started where they left off and I hate them forever for that. One because unlike Batman I’m completely blind to Green Lantern, two because I just knew it’s going to mess up the timeline or continuity.
Luckily there’s an obvious jumping on point with an updated origin during Geoff Johns run, so I decided to start there. Whether I’ll continue reading Geoff Johns’ run remains to be seen because of that continuity problem and the number of books I have to read to understand everything.
Double luckily there are two versions of this collection. The original collection with the original cover, the original collection with gorgeous black cover„ and the Green Lantern movie version with Ryan Reynolds on the cover.
You know which one I didn’t pick.
Also, Ivan Reis draw the book. He had become my favorite artist because of the gorgeousness in Aquaman. So I happily got the black cover one and consider this the first volume or volume 0 of Green Lantern New 52
Things I know about Green Lantern before reading this book:
- Hal Jordan is an idiot
- Sinestro is evil, but not, but maybe
- Carol Ferris is the love interest and also Star Sapphire
- Atrocitus is a Red Lantern
- Hal has daddy issues
- The Guardians are papa smurf and are EEEEVIIIL
- Basically everything about Hal I know from New 52 Justice League Origin
