It being 2013, it is hard to belief Geoff Johns has now been writing Green Lantern for close to 9 years, which is something unheard into days times of where one writer gets lucky to write a 6-issue arc for a character. The funny thing is, Johns keeps furthering the vast GL lore and manages to keep readers addicted to it every step of the way. So while Green Lantern Vol. 1: Sinestro (The New 52) (Green Lantern (Graphic Novels)) was a rough jumping on point for new readers, loyal readers probably felt like they have read it before and it was a big tease of things to come. On the other hand, volume 2, THE REVENGE OF BLACK HAND we see Johns as he dips right back into his ever-growing GL legacy grow for loyal readers, and into the next big future event for Hal Jordan and Sinestro.

A year ago, I would have told you that Green Lantern was one of my least favorite superheroes. Green ring? Constructs? Meh. My how things have changed, and I have Geoff Johns to thank for that. I say with only slight hesitation that Green Lantern just might be my most favorite superhero, beating out my beloved Batman. Again, I have Geoff Johns to thank for that. Minor spoilers follow.
You know Hal just cannot not be a Green Lantern, even if it is a knock off made by Sinestro himself. As Sinestro starts to inform Hal on a glimpse of the prophesies he saw in the Book of the Black, both are captured by the Indigo tribe. Their capture eventually leads to many revelations and twists, such as the Indigo Tribe's origin, their true purpose, whether or not Sinestro can find redemption, and just how immorally inept, pompous and twisted the Guardians have become (was it possible for them to be worse?). The character focus provides great insight into both Hal and Sinestro, seeing their...
As stellar as the first volume was, Revenge of the Black Hand truly eclipses it in every way!! I rank this right up there with Snyder's Batman. This is a book that is firing on all cylinders as it leads into Rise of the 3rd Army. The continuation of Hal and Sinestro's journey to uncover the Guardian's secrets has been nothing short of phenominal. Seeing these 2 work together & slowly develop a true partnership really is the heart of this book. Throw in some beautiful artwork and you have an instant classic. I encourage anyone who has ever had even a passing interest in GL to pick up volumes 1 & 2 of the New 52 collections.
