I’m behind on this one because I needed a break from the Green Lantern Corps. This relaunch is written by Robert Venditti, continuing from his earlier Corps writing, and carrying in some of the previous story lines, but most of the focus is on Hal Jordan, my favorite GL. Hal gets to return to the role and the costume. Plenty of characters and story threads are waiting, including an intriguing look at a very old Sinestro. As a reader, I hope the focus on character evident here continues rather than a return to massively complicated end-of-the-universe epics with dozens of characters, but I do feel a renewed fondness for the franchise, and will give it some continued reading. The art by Ethan Van Sciver is excellent, as always.

Recommended.
