I was curious about Geoff Johns run of Green Lantern after I saw various youtube videos describing the GL landscape. Since the only prior experience of Green Lantern I had was the movie, I decided to give Secret Origins a shot.

I was curious about Geoff Johns run of Green Lantern after I saw various youtube videos describing the GL landscape. I got really understand Hal Jordan as a character and it provided me with the backstory containing his supporting cast (as well as villains). But who I want to talk about is Sinestro. He was portrayed as a true badass in this story and made me really appreciate the character more than I thought I would.

Following Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns, Green Lantern: Agent Orange (also sometimes called Green Lantern : Agent Orange-Prelude to Blackest Night) is written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Philip Tan Eddy Barrows, Ivan Reis, Rafael Albuquerque, and Doug Maknke. Also included in the collection is the Free-Comic-Book-Day issue Blackest Night Geoff Johns really introduced the whole color spectrum to the world of the Lanterns which before him had a Green, Yellow, and Pink (though the pink weren't really referred to as Lanterns).

Agent Orange is a Green Lantern storyline by Geoff Johns and Philip Tan, written as a prelude to the Blackest Night crossover. It expands on the War of Light with the introduction of Larfleeze and his Orange Lantern Corps. The storyline involves Hal. The storyline involves Hal Jordan visiting the Vega system when an ancient agreement between Larfleeze and the Guardians is declared null and void. He struggles with and becomes possessed by the orange light, representing avarice on the emotional spectrum. Green Lantern (Volume 4) #39.

First, you need to know that Geoff Johns didn’t write the Green Lantern Corps series, Peter Tomasi did and it was pretty good too. I personally read the two series, but if you only want Johns’s work, you’d have to skip most of the corps series (after Recharge), the ion one, etc. Just read Green. Just read Green Lantern. Before jumping into the main story, it is often recommended to start with these two books: 1401220177 Green Lantern: Secret Origin (2008) and 1401233406 DC Universe by Alan Moore (2012).

I have to commend Geoff Johns for his ability at consistently creating new characters and introducing them . The volume, introduced more background into the Blue Lanterns, the home of the Blue Lantern Corps Power Battery and some of their powers.

I have to commend Geoff Johns for his ability at consistently creating new characters and introducing them to this vast world he's rebuilt over the past few years and redefined. Jordan struggle to get the Blue Power Ring off throughout the issues to no effect and just doesn't see how the Blue Power of Hope can help him, even going to declining to become a leader of the Blue Lantern Corps.

Written by Geoff Johns, Green Lantern: Agent Orange (also sometimes called Green Lantern: Agent Orange-Prelude to Blackest Night) is a follow-up to Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns. The collection features art by Philip Tan, Eddy Barrows, Ivan Reis, Rafael Albuquerque and Doug Maknke and also features the Free-Comic-Book-Day issue Blackest Night This run on Green Lantern revolutionized Green Lantern. Johns took Green Lantern in a direction that had never been done before and set-up a great series of stories with a planned goal.

Green Lantern travels to the mysterious, isolated Vega sector, but encounters a being long kept secret by the Guardians, the Lanterns' leaders - a creature called 'Agent Orange', who wields the one and only orange ring - which is powered not by will, but by greed. Hal will discover exactly what the greed-powered creature wants... more power rings.

I was curious about Geoff Johns run of Green Lantern after I saw various youtube videos describing the GL landscape. Since the only prior experience of Green Lantern I had was the movie, I decided to give Secret Origins a shot.

This. Was. Awesome.

I got really understand Hal Jordan as a character and it provided me with the backstory containing his supporting cast (as well as villains). But who I want to talk about is Sinestro. He was portrayed as a true badass in this story and made me really appreciate the character more than I thought I would. One thing I really wish would happen in this story was if they could've pointed me what to read next. I really wanted to see Sinestro's fall from grace and unfortunately Geoff Johns run does not cover it. This particular story is a prelude to Blackest night, and I highly recommend it to any brand new GL readers BEFORE going into Green Lantern: Rebirth. It really does make you understand the characters of both Hal Jordan and Sinestro. Definitely worth the money.

This was a great introduction to one of the best characters in DC universe. The best start for anyone who knows nothing about GL.
Overall the artwork is soo gorgeous, and writing is good too.

It contained:
Hal's childhood, Hal as a pilot, how he became a GL, training at OA with the corps, Hector Hammond, Hal/Sinestro, massacre of sector 666, Atrocitus/William Hand...and so much more.

There... I said it!!!!.

Let's start with the good stuff. The art... I'm quite surprise about Philip Tan's work on this book. Feels like the new Jim Lee but with less bulkier characters. Cool character design, great execution with the existing ones and magnificent backgrounds. Art have a perfect ten!!!.

The story by Geoff Jones is exactly like his late work... AWESOME!!. This is an incredibly great book to lead to Blackest Night. These last few books of the series has been quite an eye opener for the past of the guardians, and this is not the exeption. I love when I see something good is cooking.

This book contain:
* Green Lantern 38 to 42
* A chapter from Origins & Omens that shows a bit of the future of Hal Jordan and John Steward. Spoiler free!.
* A short chapter from Tales of the Orange Lanterns
* Some alternative cover gallery
* Blackest Night 0, which contains sketches, short comments on the drawings and a short presentation of each lantern corps, including the ones we know so far and the Indigo and Black Lanterns.

Now let's go with the bad part:

THIS IS 128 PAGES ONLY!!!!!!!!. Although the content is good, I really hate the fact that DC is ofting throwing thinner books. For what I include above it would seem is a big book, but is not. It is one of the smaller books they've publish so far. What's gonna be next time... a 59 page hardcover?. Sheeesh!!.

Anyway, those were my two cents. I HATE TO LOVE IT!!!!!!!.

Get the paperback edition. Is only $10 although, if you can find a discount on it, TAKE IT!.

This is a content update for the 2010 edition released (according to the title page) as _Green Lantern: Secret Origin (New Edition)_. The book, a retconning of GL's origin to tie it in to the then upcoming "Blackest Night" series (Blackest Night), is essentially the same as the original edition (Green Lantern: Secret Origin) but adds an introduction by actor Ryan Reynolds (reproduced in full on the Amazon product page), who plays Hal Jordon/Green Lantern in the upcoming feature film (which is heavily indebted to the "Secret Origin" arc). The additional pages (192 versus 176, according to DC) include 16 pages excerpted (teasers really) from various later _Green Lantern_ collected editions tying in further to "Blackest Night." It is a good story, but there is no real reason to get the new edition if you have the older one or the original comics, which I do.

As I started my journey with Green Lantern: Rebirth, I was both excited and unsure. Since then Hal Jordan has been built back up to the classic Green Lantern that I always thought he was, though I did not know of his dark past with the Parallax. As the War of Light began (very exciting) I was eager to see all the different powers at work and I must say I loved every part of the spectrum up to Orange.

The Sinestro Corps War arc was the best of the series, the Blue Lanterns should have got their own entry, Red was the classic villain but Orange was kind of one dimensional. While the itself book wasn't that bad, the character Larfleeze (who is essentially the entire Orange Lantern Corps) was kind of a weird character. Kind of a mixture of Gollum and Gonzo? (referenced in the book), that could have been better.

Structure wise the writing could have improved to be a little bit more concise and not that the art is bad but it was mostly safe and not really strong in parts.
