    I'm always leery of comics like this one, simply because their job is to lead you into the specific short-term story that is the movie origin of Hal Jordan. The point is to give you the lay of the land and explain how what you know is being interpreted in the framework of the story being told, and as such it may be forced to ignore the niceties of comic book storytelling. In an attempt to get everything in, writer Tomasi chose/was forced to couch the book in a lot of narration and explanation. It's successful in giving us information, but nothing here makes me want to desperately rush out in a buying frenzy to watch the Green Lantern movie. The overall design work is interesting, trying to capture the over-elaborate designs of the aliens, the Guardians (who do look more impressive than their comic counterparts) and the alien planets, but the art itself ends up being pretty standard, and the closing shot of Kilowog and Tomar is awkward as all hell.

    In the end, this comic is limp. I'd much rather prefer to read a great Kilowog story -- which I know Tomasi has in him somewhere " than suffer through a comic fans' guide to the unnecessarily changed characters you know from the books as they will appear in the movie. Last week's "Flashpoint" Abin Sur story was more enjoyable and offered more insight to the world of Oa than this book, which is a shame, because it has nothing to do with the upcoming film. This comic, however, seems like less of a prequel and more of a primer, gently easing comic book readers into the universe of the feature film Green Lanterns. Read Full Review
