    A very pleasing ending to a nearly decades-long story arc. I loved being given a glance into the future of the New 52 universe and being able to see the ultimate fates of all the major GL players.

    "Ya done good, poozer!"This conclusion to Johns' run was pretty damn good, even with some strange thoughts in the end...Not going to spoil things of course, so I guess you'll just have to go and read it to find out what I mean..But overall: Happy to have been part of this ride... Big story, big ending, lots of action/love/drama/death/revivals/.... :pOk, 'nuff said... Go and enjoy!!

    Wow! So i finally was able to read the end to Geoff Johns Green Lantern Run! (My teachers were all off on emergency, so i had a lot of free time.) So anyway this story-line evolves around The First Lantern, the first lantern that the Guardians created, but had to stop. He's back for revenge, possessing the power to bend space and time so hes basically a god! The First lantern is a pretty evil guy, going around and torturing lanterns, he's like The Joker, he loves breaking people! I must say though, Geoff Johns knows how to handle a cast and a half of characters, so many characters are in this story, but each have a fair amount of page time, and play a role in the story! Overall this a great story!

    Giving this 3 stars. I did not like at all the first part where the first Lantern attacks every lantern.The second part however where they start to fight back was much better. The conclusion was good too.Still I think there could have been a better end to Geoff Johns long Green Lantern run.

    For Johns' last major crossover (and final arc), I'd expected another long-winded cosmic fight. To instead get a look at the backstories of all the major characters and some possible alternate histories for them was literally revelatory and a much nicer way to end this era of Green Lantern.The First Lantern himself was surprisingly uninteresting. I feel like Johns largely forgot to fill in his backstory. The bits we get are intriguing, but in the present he's just generic-bad-guy who wants to do bad stuff (tm). Ah well.Overall, Johns' run on Green Lantern was clearly one of the most iconic and definitive runs ever. I think that the GL/GA run is the only other one that compares (and I say that being a big fan of the largely uncollected Jones run, just before the original Parallax stupidity). He created an intriguing universe, and DC's cosmic comics should benefit from that for a long while.And now I have to decide whether this is a natural jumping off point, because DC's treatment of creators and fans in the New 52 era has generally soured me toward supporting the company ...

    I am torn with this one. I love the idea but at the same time, I hate it. I love that it's a Green Lantern crossover but then I hate that this crossover took so long to get into. The way this first lantern guy just goes into other lanterns and fucks with them, turns Kyle into a pussy and Guy almost seemed like he was going to cry as he reflected on his childhood. I almost stopped reading, and I never stop reading a comic... a superhero comic... a Green Lantern comic. Yeah that one. When I cam back to it, I was almost like, na fuck this, I can just watch the animated show for my fix.Then i realized about 2 mins into the episode, I've seen this shit millions of times, I still have yet to read this so I probably should finish it. Finally got back to it and it started to pick up. It was the first time I didn't look at this story as a crossover and just a big GL story. Still love the Corps and always will.

    The penultimate arc of Geoff Johns run on Green Lantern took the element of an original Lantern of the Green Lantern mythos and used it as a neat way to look back at each of the individual charachters Johns has had a hand in shaping over the last decade and showing how they've been expanded from their original roles. The supporting Green Lanterns have always been the more interesting characters in the series in comparison to the often emotionally flat Hal Jordan. What makes Green Lantern always work despite a flat main character is a rich universe and a vivid supporting cast.

    I normally like Green Lantern, but this was one giant mess of a story. So much of it made no sense and I pity the casual reader who just happens to pick this up looking for a coherent Green Lantern story. The final chapters had bright spots and moved some characters forward, but I can't recommend this to any but the most die-hard GL fans, and even then...meh.

    Really cool and fitting end to the epic ride Green Lantern fans have been on with Geoff Johns. Some plot devices I could have done without, but on the whole, it was a great and fitting ending.

    Wow, the whole story. Apparently DC felt the need to put this out, as well as putting only the Green Lantern parts in the last volume of Green Lantern I read. At least this makes the story make sense

    This is very hard review to write.I am going to write about this arc and then followed by me just gushing about how much this arc matters as a culmination of everything that came since REBIRTH.World: The world building here is great, not because it created anything earth shatteringly new to the GL Universe, but because this was a culmination. It was a culmination of all the pieces of world building that Johns and all the other GL writers have been doing since Rebirth. Every single character has their little issue of development and acknowledgement of what came before and how to move on going forward. Sure, I will say that this acknowledgment did hurt the narrative and the structuring of the story but it's a small fault for all the things that this world has done since Rebirth. As a singular story you can't take that part away because this story is simply about the world and the characters. This GL universe is just rich and amazing and something I have not seen anywhere else in the DCU in it's scope and complexity and creativity since the 2000s. Nothing else in the DCU compares at all.Story: The singular story of the First Lantern is a bit of a structural and pacing mess given the need to cover all the Lanterns and letting them have their day. Much like Blackest Night and the endless tie-ins this is essentially the same story told in different characters POVs. That is the first half of the arc, the First Lantern digging into each GLs past and playing with it. It's great as single issues but as a cohesive story it's janky in the beginning. Not only until the middle part does the narrative pick back up it's tension and speed to zoom toward that wonderful end. And as with the world building above you cannot simply look at this story in it's isolated state but as a culmination of everything that came before. This started in the pages of Rebirth and ends here, this is the full story of Hal Jordan and also the greater GLU. This is the end of the Guardians story which started in Rebirth and this story is the culmination of the entire emotional spectrum that was introduced and hinted at in Rebirth. This is the end and the end we get is great. It is a cheat ending yes, but it is the ending that Johns deserves after 10 years of writing this universe. It's the ending we all wanted for this, this is an ending that does not disappoint if you never read any other GL book ever again. This is how you walk into the sunset. This ending made me cry.Characters: Yes this is a one arc and to see it as a greater I will do that later, but right now this arc in itself for each character was also strong as hell. It was paced poorly but each character got it's little snippet of development in their own issue. Everyone got to face the First Lantern and their past brought out as a dramatic plot device. But once again we look back at this entire run since Rebirth and we see how far these characters have gone and you will look back in awe. Rebirth happened when Rayner GL was at the end of it's legs, it was derivative and last a lot of the spark that Emerald Twilight gave Kyle and the GLU and Rebirth reignited the entire world. The cast of characters was huge and for them all to mean something and to have their own place in the GLU was a huge huge task but Johns and also the other GL writers did a phenomenal job. How do you define all the Earth Lanterns to make them each mean something? They did it, they made Guy cool again, they made John matter, they made Kyle interesting and intimate and they redeemed Hal. I never grew up with Hal and I've always been a Kyle Lantern person simply because he was the Lantern I read (much like Drake is my Robin and Cassandra and Steph are my Batgirls). However, Johns has made me love Jordan, has made me care about Jordan and the rest of the cast and I can't see a GLU without all the Earth Lanterns. I started off this journey not caring about Guy the most, I wished they would have killed him off to reduce the cast, I did not care for Jordan, all I cared was Kyle and also Stewart because of the cartoons. But now with amazing character development I can't live with any of them and I would be devastated if any of them died. This is just amazing storytelling. Let's not forget all the other amazing characters we have, Natu, Vath, Sarn, Killowag, Mogo, Bleeze....I can't name them all, it's just too many. This is the heart of the book and this is the best part of the series and if you look at this arc and also the entire GLU since Rebirth you will know why Johns is such an amazing talent. He made GL relevant again.I cried in the end, I've not cried like this since Fables 100. This world matters and yes the GLU is still moving forward but it will never be the same without Johns. He defined a decade even a generation of the GLU and the readers. His vision for this world has changed the GLU so fundamentally that without him it simply is impossible.Thank you Johns for making me love this universe again.Onward to the next book!

    Pues aquí acaba la fantástica etapa de Green Lantern a manos de Geoff Johns. Cuando empecé en el mundillo de DC fui ilusa al pensar que Green Lantern era el superhéroe que menos me llamaba la atención de la Justice League, pero que aun así, le daría la oportunidad para conocerle un poco mejor, igual que al resto de miembros. Cuando decidí ponerme a ello y vi que Geoff Johns había escrito toda una etapa, y que era calificada como la mejor, ya no solo del personaje, sino de todo su universo, ni lo dude un segundo. Creo que actualmente no hay guionista/autor que me llame más que este señor, porque es oro todo lo que escribe, tiene una mente maravillosa. Gracias a él me retracto hoy de mis palabras y puedo decir bien alto y claro que Hal Jordan, Green Lantern, es mi segundo superhéroe favorito, después de Batman por supuesto, y el universo que le rodea, el mejor. Todo el universo que ha desarrollado Geoff junto con el personaje ha sido fantástico, no sólo profundiza en el Green Lantern Corps, sino que además ha creado 6 más, dando vida al espectro emocional en forma de distintos Corps: Green - Voluntad; Blue - Esperanza; Yellow - Miedo; Orange - Avaricia; Violeta - Amor; Red - Ira, y la Tribu Índigo, quiénes representan la Compasión. Y sin olvidar los Black y White Lanterns, quiénes representan la muerte y la vida, respectivamente.No ha habido arco argumental flojo, que no haya sido una maravilla, con esos giros argumentales que a Geoff tanto le encanta usar. Y no me ha podido gustar más su caracterización de Hal Jordan: un héroe que no piensa dos veces antes de actuar, ni siquiera una, simplemente actúa, porque es el héroe sin miedo, el héroe que solo funciona gracias a su voluntad. Un héroe que hace cualquier cosa por el bien común y por ayudar y salvar a los demás, desde desafiar a la autoridad (lo que han pasado los Guardianes con este hombre no tiene nombre) hasta sacrificarse a sí mismo. En simples palabras, definiré a Hal Jordan con las mismas palabras que usó Johns en su último número: "Hal Jordan fue la chispa que inició el fuego eterno" "Hal Jordan, el más grande de todos los Green Lanterns." Gracias a Johns también, no he leído arco argumental que más me haya sorprendido, gustado y dejado sin respiración tanto durante como al final de su lectura, que Blackest Night. Una obra maestra, el gran ejemplo de todo lo bueno que es el Volumen 4 de Green Lantern. Tampoco he leído arco argumental que consiguiese ponerme en la piel del héroe, y sufrir tanto como él, que Sinestro Corps War. Como una ciudad entera, junto con el Green Lantern Corps, ayudaron a Hal Jordan a derrotar a Sinestro. No hay nada más que me emocionase tanto de este arco que ese cartel de Coast City: "Coast City, la ciudad sin miedo."Mención especial a Peter J. Tomasi, ya que he tenido el placer de leer a sus Green Lantern Corps en los arcos más importantes del Volumen 4 de Green Lantern, y en los 20 primeros números de los N52. Gracias a él he podido conocer más a fondo a los fieles compañeros de batalla de Hal Jordan: Guy Gardner "El Guerrero"; John Stewart "El Constructor de Puentes"; Kyle Rayner "El Portador de la Antorcha"; y más recientemente: Simon Baz y Jessica Cruz, dos Lanterns que van a dar mucho que hablar, y para bien. Mención especial por supuesto a los demás Green Lanterns no humanos, como Kilowog (¡Poozers!) Salaak, Arisia, Sora, etc. Gracias a todo el Corps por hacerme sentir parte de ellos, un miembro más, y disfrutar (y sufrir) con sus aventuras. Tampoco acabaré esta reseña sin destacar a algunos de los miembros de los otros Corps y que tanto me han hecho disfrutar y conocerles mejor: Carol Ferris (Star Saphire ♥♥), Atrocitus, Larfleeze, Saint Walker (Todo estará bien♥), Black Hand, el gran villano de Blackest Night junto a Nekron, Y, POR SUPUESTO, SINESTRO, uno de los villanos más carismáticos y complejos que he tenido el placer de leer.Y hasta aquí. Gracias a Johns me he enamorado por completo de este universo, y aunque él ya no esté al mando, seguiré leyendo las aventuras de Hal Jordan y no solo del Green Lantern Corps, sino de todos los demás, porque aunque él no esté, su esencia sí sigue presente, ya que ha hecho historia con este universo. Gracias por hacerme cambiar de opinión, Gracias por hacerme llorar con ese fantástico último número, y sobre todo, por hacerme miembro del Green Lantern Corps, Geoff Johns ♥

    Despite the frustration one undoubtedly has from the resolution-less Rise of the Third Army storyline, and the sheer insufficiency of the First Lantern as a palpable presence as a universe-threatening villain, the overall effect of this collection is one of enjoyment, tempered as it may be if you have read a number of these issues in the individual series collections. The biggest disappointment storywise is the destruction of Thanagar for no meaningful reason or purpose. It's one of those "let's kill off a major character 'cause it's the end of the season and we don't have any fresh ideas" sorts of moves that should not have happened and shortchanged the characters and audience far more than any potential good it could have done. Still, unless you really care about Sinestro, it might not bother you too much.The obvious highlight of the storyline/collection is the massive Green Lantern 20 (assuming that's the issue, since this collection like so many doesn't want you to know what issue or what series you are currently reading). As far as slam-bang finishes go, this even surpasses Grant Morrison's finale on Action Comics. It may not get any more slam-bangier than this, that's for sure. Everyone (well, not the early GL Corps supporting crew, who have mysteriously all disappeared) makes an appearance, even characters that don't have much to do with anything, giving us Mighty Mighty Battle Scenes and Splashes of Wow all over. Sure, this doesn't give us much time to digest or feel any emotional impact from any of these major twists and pops and booms, but it does do a fine job simulating what it might be like to ride a roller coaster without any of the devices that ensure the cars stay on the tracks. Certainly the real highlight is the optimistic, heartwarming epilogue, with everyone having a happy ending. It almost makes you wish it was the last issue entirely, for it is such a great way to end it all. Of course, the series continue, and while some of them give us their own epilogues, none of them have the richness of GL 20 (unless you are a big Kyle Rainer fan). The Red Lantern stuff is still weird and forced and obvious and a bizarre combination of visceral appetite appeal and Lovecraftian weirdness (though not to his level, natch), but you don' have to think about it too much. It all reads quickly.With all the general positive resolutions (except for Sinestro, of course), this may be the best standalone GL collection of the bunch.

    Geoff Johns and a host of talented creators come together to close out the tale of the First Lantern. Imprisoned by the Guardians for years, Volthoom is free to warp reality to his liking. In order to make the changes permanent, Volthoom needs to feed off the emotional registry of various Lanterns. The accompanying tie-in issues from other titles explore the encounters and their aftermaths. Green Lantern Corps highlights the histories of both Guy Gardner and John Stewart, followed by Mogo's attempts to shake the GLC free from Volthoom's influence. New Guardians takes a look at Kyle Rayner and Carol Ferris before tackling the other Spectrum Lanterns. Atrocitus battles his inner doubts and his entire Corps in Red Lanterns, reaffirming his mission to destroy the Guardians. The main Green Lantern title deals with Simon Baz's attempts to free Hal Jordan and Sinestro from the land of the dead. With the First Lantern finally at full charge, the Corps wage an all-out assault from Mogo for the fate of the universe. The final battle sees Sinestro as the host of Parallax and Hal return as a Black Lantern. While the individual titles add their own look at how the major Lanterns deal with the fallout, the coda from Green Lantern looks at the potential future for all from the Book of Oa. Geoff Johns does a fine job shepherding his run on Hal Jordan from Rebirth to the end, growing the GL mythology and adding new layers of depth to the numerous ring-slingers. The First Lantern battle sadly feels anti-climactic, despite getting the whole rainbow crew back together, and ends up feeling like a rushed vehicle needed to end the Third Army and wrap up the impressive run. The sneak peeks salvage everything, however, providing a glimpse at both potential storylines and worthy conclusions for all Lanterns. A tip of the cap to Johns and company for an exciting and memorable run; recite your oath and check out the denouement for this Green Lantern era.

    This book is just another mediocre Geoff Johns story. I doubt there was any passion put into this story. So basically here is how the story goes. We go back to Krona witnessing the creation of the universe at the hands of The Presence. Then all of a sudden an astronaut comes through the ship, and says that he is Volthoom aka The First Lantern. Then after some origin and what not, things finally get interesting Hal Jordan is in this zone that houses Black Hand. And he doesn't have his Green Lantern ring. Then Simon Baz comes along and tries to escort him out. Then it cuts to Volthoom picking a Lantern and showing him his past and what he could be. That isn't a great description of what happened, but it was pretty interesting the first time. Then Volthoom does that again, and again, and again. And this one thing of Volthoom picking a Lantern and interrogating them, goes on for like 15 times. It is so annoying. Then Hal Jordan gets his Green Lantern ring and he leads an army of pretty much all the Lanterns.Of course they kill Volthoom, but then Sinestro turns his back on Hal, obviously. Sinestro gets the power of parallax basically like Zero Hour Parallax Green Lantern, except with Sinestro. So here is where things get really really stupid. So you know how Parallax Green Lantern is maybe even more powerful then, The Spectre! Who is a god and an all powerful god. Well when Sinestro gets that power of Parallax, Hal Jordan goes up against him, and keep in mind Green Lantern Hal Jordan has like a 5% charge left in his ring. And Hal doesn't have army of Lanterns with him, it is man to man. Somehow Green Lantern Hal Jordan actually beats him!! That might just be the stupidest fight in comics.

    Wow, this was a huge mess. Reprinting four issues each of Green Lantern and three related books, this is one of those major crossover "event" books, but it doesn't have much of a crossover, and the "event" felt really anti-climactic, at best. The first 3/4 or so of this collection features various characters encountering and battling Volthoom, the eponymous First Lantern, an immortal, godlike being possessing reality-warping powers (or something like that). All of these encounters seem disconnected from one another, and perhaps happening at the same time. (Maybe another of Volthoom's powers is to be in multiple places at the same time.) He keeps showing characters other versions of how their lives could have turned out - alternate realities or just speculation? It doesn't really matter, as we just come back to the original reality/timeline in the end. Blah. Finally, we get to the big battle issue where everyone fights Volthoom. (And by the way, what kind of name is Volthoom? Sounds like an early Lee/Kirby monster. "When Volthoom Walks.") I read this a couple days ago, and frankly, I can't remember what happened. The collection ends with several epilogues, the first two of which (from New Guardians and GL Corps) were the high points of the collection, only to be followed by a muddled mess of a Red Lanterns epilogue that left me wondering "What the heck?" And don't look for consistency in the art - I counted 21 artists listed here (and that's just the pencilers). Sadly, I think this represents a lot of what's wrong with current mainstream comics coming from the Big Two.

    This book was interesting but I think I might have enjoyed this one more if I had been reading Green Lantern for the last few years. Most of my reading of GL has been confined to the various collections that I have read. Thus I am missing some of the background to this story. Still I did find it enjoyable. The writing was good (even if I didn't always know what was going on) and the art did not detract from the story. There was one thing not addressed that I would like to have seem mentioned, though this detail may only have occurred to long-time readers of DC Comics (and especially "Justice League of America"). In his first appearance the Earth-3 Villain Power Ring mentions the he got his power ring from an entity called Volthoom. This is the same name as antagonist of this story line. However there is never any attempt to tell us if there is a connection here or not. It would be ncie to know. Still not a bad book, though I am not sure it is one i would add to my library.

    Green Lantern and GL Corps has the best to offer from the first half of Wrath of the First Lantern. Throughout this book I kept asking myself why Red Lanterns even had to exist in this story as its just not good. Art is a big plus from all titles and the gem issue in this crossover was GL New Guardians #18 with the alternate story of Larfleeze and Saint Walker. Expect more actual story progression from the second half as you just won't see it here. Although I am a big fan of Johns run on Green Lantern this just isn't his best crossover we should expect from the same writer that gave us crossovers like The Sinestro Corps War, Blackest Night and even War of the Green Lanterns. Avid GL fans should definitely pick this up but casual readers won't be heartbroken if they skip this Johns Green Lantern crossover.

    What a disappointment. These GL crossovers are definitely not what thy used to be. Sinestro corps war - AWESOMEBlackest night - AWESOMEWrath of the first lantern - meh The initial chapters with the first lantern harassing every lantern were boring to say the least. It got better after that but still not great. Third army was a great start and it ended horribly. Maybe I was expecting too much of Geoff Johns' last GL run...... And sinestro leaves the Corps?!? NO!!!! Lucky for me I have read sinestro #1 and know what's going on, otherwise I would have just given up. And no art/script at the end? I know it's petty, but I always look forward to these last pages when reading a TPB or a crossover. I AM DISAPPOINT

    This crossover is like other event crossovers - if you've read any of the related series, you've already read a portion of the book (in my case, at least 75%). While this does cap the Green Lantern arc off on an okay level, it's not due to anything the First Lantern does. Honestly, his threat (I'll take you on 2-page mini-What-If's, but I can make them real if I want to) seems outlandish, and the one time he actually follows through on it seems pretty absurd overall. Still, the Lanterns' reactions to him make him seem somewhat credible as a threat, and it's them more than the Lantern itself that sells this volume. And the codas are a nice way to end this chapter, even if the threat of the First Lantern never approaches anything like the Blackest Night era Nekron did.

    I liked this book for how it dealt with the individual character's storylines, even before presenting the 'future' in the flashforward from the book of oa, which I thought were cool and suited to each character. I liked some aspects of the first lantern, but i thought it was very strange how he accidentally went back to the beginnig of time and then was completely warped by the power- as opposed to dying or being more jn control of the power, which would have made him a better villain. I would have preferred the guardians being the focus villain and interrogating their motivations more, and seeing the lantern corps overcome them, but it was not to be. Great work overall on the entire run by all the writers and artists involved!

    Here it is: Geoff John's end to an epic run of Green Lantern. So many of his developments with Hal Jordan, the appearance of different colored lantern corps, and the fate of Sinistro come to fruition here. Johns has such an understanding and a love for these characters that it comes through clearly in this ending. Johns gives the us the natural ending or progression for each of the earthly Green Lanterns while setting up a battle royale against the Guardians and the First Lantern. Black Hand is still an more serious version of Marvel Zombies, and I cannot abide it. However, Johns makes up for it some with his handling of the other Lantern Corps and the Green Lanterns.

    This includes all of the First Lantern issues from every GL title. I gave Green Lantern: The End a 5, which is the first time I read much of this story. Honestly if you read the end you could probably not read this volume. The reason that I knocked a star of is the ending. In The End, you leave the story on the highpoint of Johns' last issue in the series. In this volume we get another issue from the other GL titles post Johns. I honestly think they did not add to the story or were needed since they are collected elsewhere.

    I think that rhis is one of the most intriguing comics I have ever read, it actually got me to go back and read from the sinestro corp war all the way through wrath of the first lantern, it was awesome...def showed that Geof Johns poured his heart into the green lanteen series. This book has def brought me back to DCcomics. Though it doesn't change my opinion I did win this book trough goodreads, first read contest.

    A Big Event built around Volthoom, the First Lantern taking on the Red Lanterns, Green Lanterns, New Guardians in one big epic. Unfortunately Volthoom's boring, an emotional parasite who feeds on suffering and subjects people to their worst most awful nightmares/guilts/fears--because Lord knows, comics hasn't done that one before. Some good bits, but overall a big waste of space.

    I won this book through Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. I am not much of a comic book fan but the colors and artistry were something to look at. I don't know anything about the Green Lantern universe so I can't compare it to anything else in the series. Did give it to a friend who into comics and he really did enjoy the book.

    This volume completes the story begun in the franchise anthology book Rise of the Third Army my comments there apply without reservation or exception to this model--the art is always good to excellent and the story itself is strongly character driven and entertaining. Some of my favorite work by Johns and his co-conspirators on the GL family of titles.

    After the surprisingly fun and exciting RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY, Geoff John's ends his historic run on Green Lantern with an overlong, confusing, and messy finale. But, there's still some charm here, mostly from Kyle Raynor's New Guardians tie-in, and I'm a sucker for the Red Lantern stuff that's been bubbling through the last couple of crossovers, so what the hell.
