Book Description

Oct. 2 2012 Absolute Green Lantern
Sinestro -- Hal Jordan's former mentor and arch-nemesis -- has gathered an army of soldiers fueled by the fear they instill in others, consisting of Arkillo, Karu-Sil, the Cyborg-Superman, and hundreds more of the most terrifying villains the universe has ever seen! Former Green Lantern Kyle Rayner has been possessed by the entity known as Parallax and now assists the Sinestro Corps in cutting a swath of evil across the universe. Trapped in the depths of the Sinestro Corps' Citadel and face-to-face with the Guardian of Sinestro's army of fear, Hal Jordan must find the will-power to battle these terrible foes. And as one of the Book of Oa's prophecies comes true, the Green Lantern Corps makes a last stand that reveals the reincarnation of one of their fold!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the format Aug. 8 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wish it included Tales of the Sinestro Corps. No reason why it doesn't IMO. Also, I haven't ready the 'floppies' in a while however it seems as though there are some odd gaps between some issues...like the story doesn't exactly flow from the end of one issue to the next (or even the one after it, as I assume there is a lot of back and forth between Green Lantern and Green lantern Corps issues)

By S.G.S TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I own a bunch of Absolutes, and I am pretty much happy with them all. This one was a great disappointment. There are some nice aspects of this book, the Slipcase is nice looking, the newly desinged dust jacket art is awesome, and some of the extras are nice ( files ). Taking that into consideration I can't give this book more than 3 stars and I think that is being generous. The production is ok, but not what I expect from a $70 book ( $100 retail ). The binding cracked with every turn of the page. Glue should not be needed with a sewn binding. The slipcase while nice in design had to be glued back together when I took it out of the box ( an exception to the rule I know ), I don't think most people would get a copy like that. Maybe its the fact that I anticipated this one since the solicitation was announced late 2011, and had some high expectations is he reason I am not loving this book. Or it could be the fact that DC has decided to collect a book in absolute that had very little appeal to anyone other that Green Lantern fans. Eitherway, the story is nice, and if you are a huge fan of this story then by all means haul out the old Visa and buy away and enjoy. If you are on the fence and not sure which way you will swing here I suggest rereading the trade fist, or investing in one of the timeless comic stories in Absolute or Omnibus format. I recommend Absolute DC: The New Frontier[[ASIN:1401212824, Absolute Batman: The Long Halloween]], Thor by Walter Simonson Omnibus... Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The greatest Green Lantern story ever told. Oct. 28 2012
By Sebastian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This, like my other Absolute reviews, 'unboxes' the book so you can get a good look at slipcase, dust jacket, hardcover, and special features. I also have a little rant at the end, making a counter point to the one star reviewer who felt that the omission of the supplemental Superman Prime one-shot was reason to dock so many stars off the rating. in short, they argued that the aforementioned one-shot contained an important part of the story and shouldn't have been left out. I argue that the one-shots were primarily to serve up back-story for the featured title villains, and have no impact on the main event. You could easily skip them and the only thing that you would miss is where Superman Prime's shirt went. Seeing as this event was the equivalent of 13 issues already, it is unreasonable to expect DC to package another hundred pages of supplemental back stories and side-battles. The story is complete, and MAN it is gorgeous in this format.

Update:
After more thoughtful consideration, i have decided to remove one star for the omission of the one-shots. I don't care too much for extra features, but i have now decided that i agree with the detractors, that the one shots wouldn't have been too much to ask. Regarding the page count: The Absolute Sandman books were around 20 issues each, and neither felt too cumbersome and still maintained the same price tag. And since these books are printed in China, i refuse to believe that it would be too costly for DC to include the one-shots and NOT make a massive profit. I'm still happy with my purchase: Absolute Editions give me more long-term enjoyment than any video games or Heroclix i collect, but I must concede that DC seems to be going cheap to pinch pennies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Green Lantern classic! Dec 5 2012
By Sonic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I believe there is no need to go in great depth here since most of you interested in this product have already read SCW and
is one of you favorite GL stories! Other reviewers on this side have shown both video and a detailed content list so all I can say is: If you can afford it, get it! This is my first Absolute edition ever and it didn't disappoint.

About the missing one-shots! We all knew the contents of the book way before the release so we can't say we were fooled. Though the exclusion of the one-shots is a sad thing,and drops this edition from perfect to pretty darn great,this is still a masterpiece on its own. There is great deal of extras in the book compared to the TPB,sketches,scripts, tales of the Sinestro corps and a lot more. The production value of the book is superb,from the quality and presentation to the book binding. A+

SCW is one of the best, if not the best Green Lantern story ever. Collectors probably already have this edition on their shelfs. Its Christmas soon... Treat yourself to something nice!

5/5 9.5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Absolute March 7 2013
By Dax S. Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to give this book a 5 star review but I simply can't. It is supposed to be the Absolute Edition of the Sinestro Corp War but it is in fact only 2 volumes. The third was the Tales of the Sinestro Corp War (and GL featuring Ion). While some might say that is ok the various tales actually fill in some gaps left for these expansion tales.

Don't get me wrong, I love having the awesome over sized book with vol 1 & 2 together but when the first word is Absolute, I expect to get everything SCW in one book.

Still highly recommend this book (especially over TPB's).
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Edition, but doesn't include everything. May 3 2014
By Ric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a great story, and the absolute edition is wonderful. I will warn that this does not include the 4 one-shots that went along with the story. (Cyborg-Superman, Parallax, Superman-Prime, and Ion) That disappointed me slightly, but I still feel this is better than buying all the trades.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great collectors item! Sept. 26 2013
By Landry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Sinestro Corps War is undoubtably some of Geoff John's greatest work. And what better way to collect it all, than in a gorgeous, oversized, hardcover format! The price might be a little painful, and it might be missing the One-Shots, (which aren't necessary to the central story anyway, although I do agree that DC should've included them). Regardless, its a great read, and if you're into collecting, it's defiantly worth the coin.
