This mini-series was really my jumping onto point for the Green Lantern series, I'd heard a couple of basics before like Hal Jordan was a fighter pilot. The rings use the energy of will power. Sinestro is a villain, as if the name couldn't tip you off to that. And that there was a CGI movie based on the idea.
This turned out to be a pretty good book to jump in on, the characters back stories were explained briefly, with more in depth comic references that people who read the series would not doubt be able to pick up on. The four human green lanterns are introduce, Hal Jordon, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and John Stewart. As well as the idea of the guardians, a race of people who created the Green Lanterns to protect the universe from chaos, which they believe to come from uncontrolled emotions. Lanterns who have given into other emotions become other colours.
Black: Death (Main villains in Blackest Night)
Krona a former guardian, a recurring villain, who does not believe in the lack of emotion by the other guardians captures the entities of the emotions. Creatures of pure energy of their respective emotion, Parallax, the creature of fear has already been a villain and touched the four human lanterns in the past. The focus of the adventure is battling Krona and the Green Lantern Corps who has been infected by Parallax.
This miniseries left me with only a slight feeling of disconnect, as far as jumping on mini series events this was a decent place for me to start. I enjoyed the characters of Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner, as well as a couple of the villains. That said certain things did annoy me, particularly the ending. When people show no development and continuously makes the same mistakes you wonder why anyone listens to them. This is what the guardians felt like to me. After only one mini-series I was already annoyed with them and the ending which is kind of a tease for the reboot in September. I do not know how long this change will last but we shall see.
