Comic Book Book Club: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps Part 1
On this episode we start the first of our two part Comic Book Book Club on the DC Rebirth run of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. We've covered the Green Lanterns before in a regular Character Corner but we really wanted to dive into this Rebirth run because it's really great. For this first episode we cover the first three volumes:
- Volume 1: Sinestro's Law
- Volume 2: Bottled Light
- Volume 3: Quest for Hope
This run throws the reader right into the deep end. The Green Lantern Corps has been decimated, the Sinestro Corps has taken over as the galaxy's police force and Hal Jordan is trying to control the power of a prototype Lantern ring that is basically consuming him. And that's just the beginning. The great thing about this run is that if you have a favorite between Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner or Kyle Rayner then each of them gets their moment. Even better, if you weren't a Guy Gardner fan before (and let's be honest, there's plenty of reasons not to be), you will be by the end of these three volumes.
If you want to hear us talk more about the Green Lantern Corp, check our our three part deep dive into the Corps. And we'll be back to finish the last 4 volumes of this run in a couple of weeks so stay tuned:

I’m a huge fan of this podcast. I’ve been listening to it on Apple Podcast for awhile and it’s been a big help to me in my comic readings and helped me better understand my favorite characters. It’s also inspired me to read more comics. I wanted to ask, if it isn’t too much, if I could request a Hulk episode. Especially one about his time before the 2000s. He’s always been one of my favorite characters but when I see most people talk about him it’s, Planet Hulk, or World War Hulk and recent stuff we’ve all seen. But I’m kind of interested in his earlier exploits but I’m too impatient to read every issue to find out. Again, I love this podcast and thank you for helping us understand comics a bit better.
Well, I just reached the end of the episode and now I feel stupid. Lol
