Default Hey newbie needs help!

Hey there! I'm new here (obviously) and am excited to join the community. I am also new to green lantern. I picked up three books at half priced books last week, Sinestro Corps war, Rage of the red lanterns, and war of the green lanterns. I read the first two and loved them. My question is after I read war of the green lanterns what should I do? Start at rebirth and read Geoff Johns run, or should I read a different run? any reply would be great! And Sorry for the long post!

One of us! One of us!
Gooble gobble, gooble gobble!




There are lists on this site like this one to let you know what's available. Rebirth and on would give you a handle of Johns' run. Most people here are fans of that run up to or through Blackest Night.

Welcome to the boards!

I would suggest starting at Volume 4 (Rebirth) and then reading till you lose interest, otherwise go ahead and read War of the Green Lanterns and jump on Volume 5 I suppose.

Rebirth, definitely. Read the rest of the Johns run when HPB takes in the trades at a price you can afford.

For reading material only on older issues (like Volume 2), the Showcase Presents volumes aren't bad, but they're in black and white. Comixology has most of Volume 2 and a lot of Volume 3 on line, and they occasionally have free or near-free events.

If your HPB is like my HPB, there are lots of single issues available. Fill those in for the New 52, and you'll be up to speed with the rest of us.

Welcome, welcome to our world. Verdant greetings.

Like the others said, get to War of the GLs when you get to it. You'd probably like the other stuff more and War will make more sense if you've read the rest of vol. 4.

Yo.

if U want to read about Green Lantern, and not just about Hal Jordan or Kyle Rayner, then Id recommend these: example 1 and example 2, and then goto yur LCS and try to find any copies of Green Lantern Corps Quarterly U can find.

*those* will give U some excellent examples of wat good GL-stories were all about, and U'll be glad ya did.

yur welcome, and enjoy the site.
