Green Lantern New 52 Vol. 1: I'm so very slowly picking up some comics to read. I read quite a bit until about 15 years ago when I had to stop due to priorities in life. Green Lantern is my favorite comic book character so I needed to start somewhere and decided to do so with The New 52 Vol. 1. The New 52 was a "soft reboot" of characters in DC? That's my best description. Volume 1 here sees the Green Lantern Corps as a whole in a lot different place than where I remember it. Sinestro has been given his ring back and heads back to his home world to save it from The Sinestro Corps whom he left to "help" the planet. That went awry and now Sinestro needs Hal Jordan's help to save the day. Jordan is on the outs as a Green Lantern at this time so this is is way to get back in fight to some extent though teaming up with Sinestro is a good thing. The Guardians of the Universe are a big part of the story and not all is good there either.
This was a fun read. Even though it has been a while for me I'm still down with telling stories that are different. And this was definitely is. There are other Green Lantern books in The New 52 including Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians, as well as some stand alone books. I'll stick with Hal Jordan for now but I definitely want to get into some of the others as well when possible. My ultimate goal is to go back and pick up the Green Lantern series that proceeded The New 52. That arc included the very popular Blackest Night story arc. There's a hug lot of those trade paperbacks on eBay that I've been eyeing. Might just have to take the leap.
