about

Two new members of the galaxy's greatest peacekeeping force are here in GREEN LANTERNS VOL. 1: RAGE PLANET, as a part of the critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!
 
One is all impulse. The other, all anxiety. Together, they put the “green” in Green Lantern.
 
Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz are the latest recruits to the Green Lantern Corps. They’ve proven themselves capable of overcoming great fear alongside the Corps and the Justice League alike. Now Hal Jordan himself has assigned them the task of protecting the planet. But they’re still new to the job, with very little experience and a whole lot to prove.
 
That makes them the perfect targets.
 
One of the Green Lanterns’ greatest enemies has returned, and he has the Earth in his sights. He is Atrocitus, the tyrannical leader of the Red Lanterns, and he means to infect the entire planet with his murderous red rage.
 
Can Jessica and Simon overcome their differences and wield the Green Lantern’s light like true partners? Or will these rookies’ rage help the Red Lanterns extinguish that light for good?
 
Blazing forth from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event comes GREEN LANTERNS VOL. 1: RAGE PLANET, the start of a thrilling saga starring all-new, all-different heroes from the creative team of Sam Humphries (Uncanny X-Force) and Robson Rocha (EARTH 2: WORLD’S END)—featuring contributions from superstars Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, Ed Benes, Tom Derenick and more! Collects GREEN LANTERNS: REBIRTH #1 and GREEN LANTERNS #1-6.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ALLRIGHT THE BOOK IS ALLRIGTH BUT NOTHING GREAT. HAVE TO SEE WHAT FOLLOWUP VOLUMES WILL BE LIKE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from decent Decent but overall nothing exceptional. Jessica was an intriguing character but I probably won't follow up on this series because of this derivative first volume.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Green Lanterns, Volume 1: Rage Planet this is a solid start for the series in spite of a few flaws (the two leads re-introducing themselves every issue has to stop) and i'd certainly like to read more. Jessica stole the show for me in this one, but hopefully Humphries will find his groove and capitalise on the rest of Green Lanterns potential next time around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A new take on green lantern Something to pass the time on the beach.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Together Than Apart Since the departure of Geoff Johns, the Green Lantern franchise has progressively diluted itself into a near boredom state. However, thanks to a 2nd rebirth ..... it's starting to make a comeback. As individual Green Lanterns of Earth, Simon Baz & Jessica Cruz are unremarkable following their star studded debuts. However, as partners .... both Cruz and Baz pack a punch that might surpass some of the great fictional cop partner teams like Riggs/Murtaugh or even Starsky/Hutch. The return of the Red Lanterns as primary antagonists to the Green Lantern Corps is a welcome one. Unfortunately, the first rebirth volume suffers from its decompression storytelling with movement as slow as molasses by writer Sam Humphries. Secondly, a multitude of artists in this volume made the arc a bit weak due to lack of consistent style. Primary artist, Rocha Robson, cannot seem to complete an issue on a regular basis. One bright spot is the welcome contributions from writer Geoff Johns, artist Ethan Van Sciver & Green Lantern Hal Jordan. I plan to stick to this Green Lantern series with hope for an even brighter future.
