When I started this blog, this reading order was one of the first on my to-do list. I pushed it away, but I finally came back to it when I read that there’ll be a new reprint next year.
What about Green Lantern by Geoff Johns?
I didn’t really know a lot about Green Lantern, but when I started digging into what is considered must read, the Geoff Johns run on the famous DC Comics series was often named.
It’s a great way to enter the Green Lantern world. Johns created a new start and expanded it in a big way that still defined it to this day. It’s full of great characters, well-thought storylines and a lot of ambitions.
If you don’t know what the Green Lantern Corps is, it’s like the space cops of the universe. Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern when an alien crashed on Earth and gave him his ring of power (that is the simple way of telling the story).
Hal joined the corps, but things got complicated and he became the vehicle for the incarnation of Fear itself. When the story began, Hal is back and dark times lie ahead.
