I can't lie. Before reading this comic, I never read a Green Lantern comic before. I know the previous GL series was hugely popluar and one of really only two money maker characters for DC (Batman the other). Which I guess, is why GL and Batman arn't really rebooted in an company wide relaunch and reboot... All that being said, why start at a new number one with this series if the history of the character hasn't changed? This is like Detective Comics #1 which felt like issue #882 instead.
I'm sure GL fans will rate this book high, and if I read the previous series as well, perhaps I would to. But as a new #1, it's just ok.
All in all - GL fans rejoice, I'm sure nothing really changed - 3/5.
