Format: Hardcover
Ok, John's story is wonderful, and the extras are great, but the real reason to buy this book over the less expensive trade is the Art. Ethan Van's art deserves to be printed in this format only. I own a few Absolutes' and they are all awesome, but when I look at a few panels in this book I stop and have to take a few minutes to take it all in. For example: when Hal hits! That visual needs to be as big as you can get it.

The extra, DARWYN COOKE'S 1st flight story is a great addition to this book, and I was glad to see it included.

All in all I don't think this book will be reprinted after the 1st run, so if you have the desire to get it you probably should. I would think in a few years it will be hard to come by.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story that re-established Hal Jordan as THE Green Lantern June 30 2010
By N. Durham - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When Geoff Johns (Infinite Crisis, Blackest Night, Flash, JSA, and countless others) took the helm on Green Lantern, he set out to do one thing and one thing only in the beginning: re-establish Hal Jordan as THE Green Lantern. With Green Lantern: Rebirth, not only did Johns manage to accomplish just that as he brings Jordan back from the dead, he also ret-cons quite a bit of backstory while also re-establishing the Green Lantern Corps and the mythology that surrounds it, while also re-establishing Sinestro as one of the fiercest supervillains in all of the DC universe. This Absolute Edition of Green Lantern: Rebirth contains the entire 6-issue mini-series as well as a good assortment of extras, albeit this is quite a bit pricey considering the content. That aside however, this is one of the best superhero stories to come out of DC in the past decade, and one of the finest works to come from Johns, who remains one of, if not the, best superhero writers in comics today. Combined with Ethan Van Sciver's cinematic artwork, Green Lantern: Rebirth was a masterwork when it originally hit in 2004, and this handsome Absolute edition only furthers that notion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book, Amazing story April 27 2010
By Luis Perez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Green Lantern Rebirth is, as most know, the story that brought Hal Jordan back as the amazing Green Lantern we all remembered him to be. The story in question is great. If you like the Green Lantern, you will probably enjoy this. The story, however, has already been brilliantly reviewed by many so it isn't my focus here. The quality of the book is though, and let me just say, is dazzling. It's very large and the art looks fantastic. The Slipcase is very well done and it even comes with a dust jacket. I feel that I got my moneys worth for every single penny with this book, and I would have even been willing to have payed more for it.

If you have the money to spare, and you really want a definitive edition of a great story, check this out.

One of many absolute edition reviews i made, largely so you can get a feel for the look of the book as well as its bonus features. my vids are mostly about the particular addition, with minimal critique of the story/art itself.

1.0 out of 5 stars R-I-P O-F-F!!!!!!!! June 30 2010
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Let's get the obvious out of the way first. The presentation of the book is beautiful. There is a new drawing in the slipcase made by Ethan Van Sciver, the material in which the book is made is pretty cool and nice to the touch. All in all this is a book that is pretty on the sight.

Why I give it one star?. Because is the THINEST Absolute Edition ever. I received mine yesterday and it makes me wanna cry because of how small it is!. I can't beleive it cost $75 retail price. I mean, this little book only have 224 pages, for Christ sake. It looks like a kid's bed-time story. The extras are a JOKE, a slap in the face. You can see a couple of Thumbnails of the outline here on Amazon. That's pretty much it!!. There is the script of chapter one (that is a perfect transcription of what you already saw in the first issue) and a few other pages with sketches, but NO COMMENTS on the drawings.

There is also the two stories included: "Flight" and "Green Lantern #1", which can both be found in the trade Green Lantern: No Fear. Fist of all, "Green Lantern #1" is waaaaay incomplete!. They didn't include the whole chapter but only 2 or 3 pages from it. "Flight", by Darwyn Cooke is just fantastic. That little porcion of the book looks even better than Rebirth itself.

Ethan Van Sciver's art wasn't made to be enlarge. I used to dig the drawing of Kyle Ryner's first appearance in Rebirth when he say "Don't be afraid", but on this edition the big pages just let you know that Van Sciver dont worry to even make a decent background. Only the characters matter, and even those doesn't look that great.

The reason why I got this was because I though they will be releasing Absolute Sinestro Corps War too, and that will make a cool collection if I got both of them. well, the thing is:

1: There is not even rumors yet for Sinestro Corps War will get Absolute treatment.
2: Even if SCW is launched to the market, Absolute Rebirth wasn't made as part of a collection but a stand alone Absolute volume.

I agree that Rebirth is pretty special because is Hal Jordan (the original Silver Age Green Lantern) big come back, and because is the start of something far cooler, which is Blackest Night, but be honest the story is not as good in terms of hard action nor epic moments nor art. Is just a decent story. That's it. If DC would launch instead a Deluxe Edition of this same book with the same content on a reasonable price, I would say it worth every penny. Absolute Edition was definably not the right way to go.

If you check well, DC also launch a new print of Green Lantern: Rebirth in paperback format. This book have 192 pages, have several extras, and it cost only $10.19. Only 32 pages less thank the Absolute, and I garantee that only "Flight" and the scrip for chapter 1 (that you don't need)is what's lacking. The script doesn't really help you to unravel anything nor adds something particulary good.

This is what is called "Market Experiment". You launch a mediocre product to the market with good publicity. If it sells the company will feel confortable making more products of its kind. If it doesn't sell, they will start considering making better things, or at least they will have to think in better aproach. MEANING: If this becomes a best seller or something like it we are giving the door open to DC suits to keep selling hardcovers of 100 pages for $20 (with Amazon discount). I mean, what's next?... ABSOLUTE KILLING JOKE (with 100 pages at $75 retail price)?!!. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!. Don't be a fool (like me) and save your money for something worthy like Blackest Night.

Something I would pay more money for would be:

SUPERMAN: NEW KRYPTON 1 (Vol.1 and 2)==> 336 pages
SUPERMAN: NEW KRYPTON 2 (Vol.3 and 4)==> 336 pages

You think I'm wrong?. Please leave your opinion so we can discuss it.

UPDATE 02/16/2011

Just as I predicted. DC has done it again. I found news that made me (almost) scream of happines. I was so exited:


I was full of joy until... Until I read the rest: "288 pg, FC, 8.25" x 12.5", $99.99 US"

You GOT to be kidding me!!!!!. They Absolute a book that deserved (in my opinion) to be Absoluted but they didn't put any extras on it... and they'll charge $100 for it??. C'mon!!!!!!. Both the Sofcover and HC edition have 288 pages, so I guess they'll take something out to include other stuff. I dunno.

3.0 out of 5 stars and they wonder why the comic book market is dying out Aug. 27 2010
By Raul Vito - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Beign a big Green Lantern fan (but mostly a HUGE Siniestro fan since the Gardner Fox days) I really loved this mini series and after getting the softcover edition of Rebirth I went back and hunted down the original mini series and waited breathleassly for a new hardcover edition (since I missed the original print). When the Absolute version was anounced I was estatic and figured that since most of the editions I owned ranged from $75 dollars for a 12 issue series (like the magnificent Absolute Long Halloween and Absolute Hush) to $100 for plus 13 issues (like Absolute Sandman) this would probably be priced at $50, and with Amazon's discount it might be somehting along the line of $38 so that price range was just about right for me. A friend of mine ordered his copy right away and we got it this week. The story itself really goes to another level with the bigger presentation, and Van Sciver's art really is the perfect mariage with Johns' story, but I'm guessing anybody interested in putting down $50 for this might be familiar with the story presented here, so I'll skip straight to why should someone go for this expesive edition istead of a perfectly servicable $10 softcover; the presentation. I have to say that that's about the only thing this edition has going for itself; the "bonus" materials are ok but they dont really add anything all that great to the book itself, plus everything here has been released before.
In the end if DC had come out with just an oversized version of the story like the hardcover editions I recently bought (Whatever happened to the Man of Tomorrow & Killing Joke) with that price range ($25) I would have bought it in a second but for the kind of price range they are asking for this book I rather hunt down the original Hardcover; at least that edition is a really sought after collectible.
Too bad DC wants to give us the shaft with their recent hardcover editions; they started out pretty strong but now they think that somehow the "deluxe" market means that we are some poor sucker willing to pay for unreasonable prices. Check out the Preacher hardcover; $40 for 6 issues for a "niche" their new $4 price range for single issues, and they wonder why the Comic book market is dying out
