Ethan Van Sciver
makes his triumphant return to the pages of Green Lantern with the
prologue to the next big event "The Rise of the Third Army." Eight
years after bringing Hal Jordan back and making of the Green Lantern
franchise one of the most profitable for DC, Johns and Van Sciver
join forces again to deliver a new story as big and exciting as
their initial collaboration.
Johns expands the GL
universe even further by introducing not only the First Lantern but
also The Hidden Ones, who are likely to take over the current
Guardians of the Universe. Black Hand, who also started his journey
in "Rebirth," finally has his revenge, although not on his terms,
and his story continues parallel to those of Jordan and Sinestro.
Then there is The Third Army. Their origin is as chilling as the
rise of the dead in "Blackest Night," and after the developments for
the titulars of this book, it is clear that no one's future is safe.
