After reading an amazing volume 1, I couldn’t resist getting volume 2 as I just had to read Blackest Night, and this beauty gives you everything leading up to it as well!

I loved every bit of this whole omnibus. Secret Origin almost made me cry, and it really struck deep! I loved seeing the origin of all the other Lantern Corps leaders. That was really sweet, and it was a wonderful build up to the main event! I thought Larfleeze in particular was funny, and definitely dangerous. I did like that Geoff Johns wrote Hal Jordan as remarking that Larfleeze reminds him of Gonzo, the muppet. Blackest Night was AMAZING and almost beyond compare as an epic! The story certainly lived up to its hype and namesake. The story also dropped a huge bombshell of a reveal about the DC Universe (which of course I won’t say here). I really felt the peril of the heroes in this story and I cared about so many characters, especially John Stewart who had fantastic character development. I found myself also rooting for some people who you wouldn’t expect to root for…save for the situation. The conclusion was draw dropping, EPIC!!!!!, and was a perfect end to what Johns considers his trilogy that started with Green Lantern: Rebirth.

This book is B E A U T I F U L!!!!!!!! I’m not sure if Ivan Reis had just made it into the big time right before he worked on GL, but this absolutely catapulted him to super stardom because his work here is top notch! The choice of number of splash pages and double page spreads were more than usual and the reader will find that this book certainly has an epic feel to it as a result of the many whole page images, especially in Blackest Night! They are all stupendous, and expertly drawn by Reis and Manhke. I also have to say that the colorists, and inkers also did a wonderful job of making sure that the one book in DC’s lineup that’s all about a color spectrum is indeed a very vibrant, gorgeous book! This book just screams color and I wouldn’t want it any other way! This is probably some of the best comic art I’ve ever seen!

What can I say? Volume 1 really, really impressed me. Volume 2 is an absolute must, and unlike the overpriced Absolute Edition, this affordable omnibus has everything leading up to Blackest Night, and that event in its entirety. So worth getting, and the book itself is nice. The book is solid, is heavy as hell, looks great, reads great….is great! Get this!
