    1 thought on “Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps, Volume 2: Bottled Light

    1. I feel like Venditti is FINALLY getting Green Lantern after writing the title for the last several years. At the end of the last volume, Hal turned completely into willpower to destroy Sinestro and Warworld. Now all that's left is his ring. Can Kyle Raynor, the White Lantern, restore Hal to life before he is completely gone? At the same time, the Corps has returned to our universe and answers a call for help from Tomar Tu's homeworld. Starro is taking over. I love where the story heads from here [...]

    2. ***** I got a digital ARC of this from DC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I know some people had a problem with the New 52 in general, but overall I enjoyed it. As with anything, there was both good and bad in it. The only real problem I had with the New 52 was that, at least initially, none of the books used established villains. Almost every title I read started off with some brand new creation facing off against our favorite heroes. With Rebirth, DC has gone the complete op [...]

    3. What could be derided by some as 'fan-service' is actually a fantastic feel good novel full of action, surprises and a huge heart. It's hard to say much without spoiling anything, but suffice to say, there's quite a few moments in this volume that would bring about air punches if it wasn't totally embarrassing and unnecessary when reading in company!This Green Lantern run is a real highlight of the Rebirth series, mainly because it keeps it simple. Everything from the storyline, to the art is cl [...]

    4. With the benefit of hindsight it's obvious that introducing six other colours of Lantern Corps was the worst possible development for Green Lantern, however fun those initial stories may have been. It ripped the title away from its roots as a sci-fi cop series and turned it into a comic entirely about its own mythology. Why bother with interesting characters when you can shuffle the multi-coloured status quo around for the tenth time? So in this volume the green and yellow lanterns shout at each [...]

    5. [Read as single issues]After his latest battle against Sinestro ends with a brand new status quo for the Green Lantern Corps, Hal Jordan finds himself dead. Again. Damn it, Hal. Instead, the Green Lantern Corps must face off against Starro, Brainiac, and one of my favourite Green Lantern villains as they find themselves miniaturized and at the mercy of their foes. All that, plus the return of Kyle Rayner, and the Sinestro Corps/Green Lantern alliance gets tested to breaking point (yes, already). [...]

    6. So good!World: The art overall is good, still not a fan of the artist changes cause of the release schedule but they did choose the best artists for the series. The powers of the rings are on full display and the splash pages are dense and amazing. The world building is fantastic, it's new and also calls back to the best of the cosmic DCU. Starro and Brainiac, what more could you want. I'm not even going to talk about where Hal went cause that part is just all the feels.Story: You knew Hal was c [...]

    7. Things start out pretty bleak at the beginning of 'Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp Vol. 2: Bottled Light' by Robert Venditti. Sure, Sinestro is gone and the Corps has found each other, but the cost has been pretty great.In the opening, a lone ring flies through space pronouncing that Hal Jordan is dead. Meanwhile the Corps is trying to get operations together and doesn't know that Hal is gone. They end up answering a distress call on Tomar Tu's world and end up trapped by.well, you'll just [...]

    8. This is definitely not a deep comic, but I don't think it has been for many years. Instead it's an action comic, and Venditti presents that action fairly well. Oh, there's fighting that just goes on and on, but there are also real repercussions and changes to the status quo that make it worthwhile. There are also just a few moments of emotion within this volume.This is still far from Venditti's best work, but it's a decent continuation of the Green Lantern mythos that earns at least 3.5 stars.

    9. After the epic events of the first Green Lanterns Rebirth story arc, Sinestro's Law, the Green Lanterns have returned to Space Sector Zero thanks to the efforts of Hal Jordan. What happened to Hal Jordan and what will happen to what remains of the Sinestro Corps.The book has two big plots that move together. Sinestro's daughter (and former Green Lantern) Soranik wants the Sinestro Corps to have a role in maintaining order. Her team were Yellow Lanterns who brought order to the galaxy after the G [...]

    10. Another excellent outing for this title!First storyline deals with the aftermath of the destruction of Warworld (end of last Volume). Hal Jordan's ring is wandering the cosmos and finds its way to Ganthet and Sayd, who summon White Lantern Kyle Rayner to help investigate it. They realize that the ring contains the full essence and spirit of Hal. From Hal's point of view, he has entered the "Emerald Space" (think heaven for Green Lanterns who gave their life in service) and is chatting with Abin [...]

    11. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps falls into the same traps that many Rebirth team books have fallen into. It features too many characters, and places too much of an emphasis of fanservice over tight plotting. It's a problem that has plagued other team books like Detective Comics, Teen Titans, and Red Hood and the Outlaws, while character-driven solo stories like Deathstroke, Superman, and Nightwing have successfully kept readers invested.You can see this dichotomy in the differences betwee [...]

    12. The preceding volume didn't set a very high bar, and yet the sequel still failed to clear it. The entire first issue was filler fluff with no purpose beyond resurrecting (AGAIN) a main character and negating any value their 'noble sacrifice' in a prior issue might have had. The Entire last issue in the volume is the comic equivalent of a clip show - recapping information we just read and adding no value to the book other than increased page count. As to the issues in-between - pairing up Larflee [...]

    13. Following on from the previous volume, the Green Lanterns are back but Hal is gone. Sinestro has been defeated, but now the Lanterns are defending a planet from an attack by Starro.While the Lanterns are fighting Starro, Hal Jordan finds himself in some mysterious realm with Abin Sur and other deceased Green Lanterns. The remaining Guardians of the Universe summon Kyle Rayner to try and retrieve Hal.The Starro attack turns out to be a lure, though - bait. Brainiac is behind it, having captured t [...]

    14. This trade was an enjoyable enough enclosed story, featuring the Green and Yellow Lanterns teaming up against an old foe. Compared to the epic battle aboard Warworld in the first trade, the stakes this time seemed a lot smaller. The battle was entertaining but lacked any real tension, serving only as a way to unite Hal, Kyle, Ganthet and Sayd with the rest of the corps. The only real drama came in the form of the final issue, which served as a teaser for what is evidently yet to come.The art of [...]

    15. An action-packed complete story comes in this trade collecting issues #8-13. The book makes references to some plot elements from vol.1 but the story in this trade is complete from start to finish. A lot of action, and I mean a lot! With an humungous cast of every Green Lantern I've heard of, and some I haven't, both living and dead, keeps the reader alert. On top of the Greens, there is also a cast of Yellow Lanterns and no less than three villains. Making their appearance are Brainiac, Starro [...]

    16. A little bit of a let down from the spectacular first volume but, it was still pretty freaking good. After the end of the first volume I was interested in what they were going to do with Hal, and I'm just a little disappointed because the Emerald space is pretty much the Speed Force for green lanterns. I enjoyed seeing other lanterns who weren't either yellow or green. Though watching the green and yellow lanterns working together was an interesting to watch, and I look forward to see how this t [...]

    17. An action-packed complete story comes in this trade collecting issues #8-13. The book makes references to some plot elements from vol.1 but the story in this trade is complete from start to finish. A lot of action, and I mean a lot! With an humungous cast of every Green Lantern I've heard of, and some I haven't, both living and dead, keeps the reader alert.

    18. I won a free copy of this book through Giveaways.I had a free comic sampler subscription that I plowed through this summer and I realized I either really get into comic storylines, or they don't interest me at all. This Green Lantern story fell into the latter.Basically, the Green Lanterns are squabbling with the Yellow Lanterns, until another big bad decides to come along and they decide to fight it together. (view spoiler)[Somewhere along the way Hal Jordan forges a ring made of his own will. [...]

    19. This is nowhere near as grand as volume one, and is really a very simple tale. The Green Lanterns think they're up against a weird alien starfish face-hugger thing, but the Yellows join them, and then they realise they're up against the devilish nastiness that is, er, glass So it's a silly story in parts, but still an enjoyable one - I even forgave the slow rebirth the story itself contained, as so many Rebirth books have been a lot worse. AND I didn't mind a character was called Tomato - heck, [...]

    20. Read this review and more on my blog, uncovered-books.I received a free copy of Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps Volume 2: Bottles Light from DC Comics in exchange for my honest opinion.I think that since I have such high expectations for anything to do with the Green Lanterns, no story is going to be good enough. I finished this a few days ago and whilst I did enjoy to, I am struggling to put into words how it did not capture me like I wanted it to.Lets start with the art style. Once ag [...]

    21. This was a great followup after Volume 1; Warworld is Destroyed and so is Sinestro. Both Corps come together to take on Brainiac and Agent Orange. John Stewart proves to be a natural leader that anyone can be proud of to have. It was also good to see the return of Kyle Rayner, Ganthet, and Sayd. Venditti is adding his own take on the GL mythology and doesn't stop. The encounter with Brainiac creates an alliance with the GL Corps and the Sinestro Corps lead by Sinestro's daughter. The story conti [...]

    22. The Green Lantern Corps gets run through some of DC Comics' more cosmic-based threats, as they deal with Starro, a discarded Brainiac model, and Larfleeze the Orange Lantern. With Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner rejoining the main corps and the uniting of the Green and Yellow Lanterns, this was a good step for an interesting series to take.

    23. The Green Lantern Corps answer a distress call from the planet Xudar. But it turns out to be a trap. The Green and Yellow lanterns are shrunk down and collected by the evil orange lantern, Larfleeze. They manage to get out and fight Larfleeze with the help of a reborn Hal Jordan.Hal Jordan had died but part of him was still alive in his ring. The white lantern used his powers to bring him back.

    24. I think this book really suffered from me reading it directly after the excellent Green Lanterns Vol 2: The Phantom Lantern. Other than Soranik Natu, I don't care for the characters in this all that much. The story was alright, but nothing really grabbed me. While not bad, I would definitely recommend the Green Lanterns book over this.

    25. This was a really fun book with the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps teaming up to combat the team up of Brainiac and Larfleeze. I've been waiting a long time to see the Green Lanterns take on Brainiac, and it's rather amazing that it's not a more common occurrence since Brainiac is constantly shrinking cities throughout the galaxy. The artwork is really good as well.

    26. [Read in single issues]In true DC REBIRTH fashion, the second volume is so much better than the first story-arc. Character personalities shine though, character growth, even the entire CORPS has personal growth.The last issue in this trade is a one-and-done but it's so, so, so important as a final endnote on this story arc.

    27. I liked the action and how the green and yellow green lanterns were fighting together. It wasn't boring and left me wanting to know what was going to happen next. The pictures were well designed and easy to follow with the storyline.

    28. I liked the first volume, but this one was even better, especially the last part, a single issue story that brought to mind Mr. Rogers's "Look for the helpers" speech, except with a comic bent. Very good.
