    Default Green Lantern comics help

    I'm trying to aquire the story arc of Rebirth, Sinestro Corp War, Blackest Night. But I can't figure out all that I need. I've got the Blackest Night and Sinestro Corp War trade. I've been looking on Amazon for the other pieces. There is so many different versions. If I have the SCW trade, do I need Absolute Green Lantern Rebirth? Or what? I know I need GL Blackest Night, GLC Blackest Night, but I can't tell what else I need. There are so many versions.

    That's only the Geoff Johns, Hal Jordan stuff and all you really need. There's tie ins and all that stuff but you don't really need any of it to enjoy the story.

    All that absolute stuff is for if you want a big nice Hardcover version (probably with sketches and extras and stuff- I don't know I don't own it)

    It looks beautiful but if you just want the stories you don't have to go all in.

    Sorry, I misread your question, I didn't realize you wanted the entire run, I thought you were meaning Blackest night only.

    Looking at amazon.

    This collect the Green Lantern issues of Blackest Night
    https://www.amazon.com/Blackest-Nigh...blackest+night

    This collects the Green Lantern corp which was a separate comic at the time.

    There were a bunch of miniseries out at the time as well. Superman, Batman, a few others. These collect them.

    https://www.amazon.com/Blackest-Nigh...blackest+night

    Another mini series
    https://www.amazon.com/Blackest-Nigh...blackest+night

    Now for what you "need" you only need Blackest Night. Everything else is just frosting on the cake.

    I kind of thought the Blackest Night issues of the Green Lantern book was boring. I really enjoyed the main series though.

    Add in the trades for Rise of the Third Army and Wrath of the First Lantern. Those storylines crossover with Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians and Red Lanterns. Rise of the Third Army concludes in a Green Lantern Corps Annual.

    Get all three volumes of the Green Lantern by Geoff Johns omnibus collections, as well as the trades for Rise of the Third Army and Wrath of the First Lantern (that way you'll get the whole story). That'll get you through the whole of the Geoff Johns run. Volume 1 covers GL Rebirth up to Sinestro Corps War, Volume 2 is Blackest Night issues (including the core issues for the event) and Volume 3 covers the Brightest Day arc, War of the Green Lanterns and the New 52 issues up to #20 (the Sinestro, Secret of the Indigo Tribe, Revenge of Black Hand, introduction of Simon Baz, Rise of the Third Army and Wrath of the First Lantern).

    I agree! If you haven't read the Shazam! book I highly recommend it!
