Thank you! I've been looking for a good list to help me out. I started in volume 4 when I first got into green lantern, but this will help me back track.

Janza Bowka 04-27-2011 11:58 PM

You didnt mention Tales of the green lantern corp vol 1 to 3 which would go after GL/GA

wolves1211 07-27-2011 06:39 AM

New to the thread and starting out with VOL #4 not started out as a GL fan but started getting back into reading and GL really interested me, is this the most updated list and where does Green Lantern Corps: Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns go? My question is has anything changed since this was last updated in Feb?

I updated the list. To be honest I forgot about it :p . I added Brightest Day storyline.

Nowen 03-18-2012 02:47 PM

Don't forget the Green Lantern and Plastic Man one shot

Lantern2814.20850 03-19-2012 02:14 PM

Don't Forget to add Green Lantern: Ganthet's Tale. It belongs between the Road Back and Return of Superman

Sure. Prestige > Oneshot

Ch'psAcorn 06-10-2012 09:20 PM

I added Volume 5 and changed the Showcase Presents series to The Green Lantern Chronicles for Volume 1 collected editions.

Kickb4ck 07-16-2012 01:05 AM

Hi, im interested in reading the Final Crisis while im reading GL stuff where abouts does that series happen in relation to volume 4? I want to read that in the proper order.

pryko 07-16-2012 06:40 PM

I'm finally interested in starting this collection, but just wanted to know, in Volume 2, Showcase 22 is listed as the first comic, so is this the first comic Hal Jordan appears as Green Lantern?

It doesn't really tie in, but during Rage of the Red Lanterns.

Awesome thanks

Having properly inspected this now, I have another question regarding it.

Volume 4 lists GLC: Recharge as bein GLC issues 1-5 and To Be A Green Lantern is GLC issues 1-6. Are these different GLC comics?

Yes. Recharge was a miniseries that was released before the ongoing Green Lantern Corps series debuted.

W. West is right. Thanks for pointing it out though, I can try to clarify this so it isn't as confusing.

EDIT: Added under Volume 5 Red Lanterns and release dates for Green Lantern Corps and New Guardians.

Ah, nice to see a comprehensive list to fill in the blanks I've missed over the years. I think I'm going to love these boards.

boshbright 09-11-2012 07:27 AM

Thanks so much for the list!
This has helped me so much in gettin stuck into the Green Lantern world.

Just a quick question, where does the 2 issue Guy Gardner story Collatoral Damage fit? I thought it was around Ion somewhere?

Also in the New 52, do you think the #0 comics will be collected in the future? Either all together or as part of their individual continuity? Can't seem to find any info about it online.

Thanks

I would put it around Infinite Crisis probably after but I don't recall the state of Rann and Thanagar around that time.

Day of Judgement
 
On 4/2/13 Day of Judgement will be collected into a TPB...that should be thrown in before Rebirth :aring:

W.West 03-10-2013 10:02 PM

Should it? The one issue of GL (#118) that had the Day of Judgment banner isn't collected in this edition. And I'm legitimately asking because I've never read Day of Judgment, just going by what's collected, it doesn't seem like a great fit on a reading order list.

Well it's got to be in there somewhere its when Hal Jordan becomes The Spectre. Without it, Hal just randomly shows up as the Spectre in Rebirth. I'm not saying it should be directly before Rebirth, but it definitely fits in somewhere before it, but that is for better minds than mine to figure out where.

Even if GL #118 is missing, you'd put it right between these two trades:

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (GL 99-106)
-> Day of Judgement (the missing GL #118)
Green Lantern #119 (Hal already is the Spectre)
Green Lantern: New Journey, Old Path (GL 129-136)

It's a shame #118 (and #119) is missing. I'll probably get it from ebay or my favorite comic shop (if they have it).
