Hal Jordan used to be known as the greatest Green Lantern of all time. Today he is known as the man who destroyed the Green Lantern Corps. Jordan's descent into madness left a path of death and destruction that changed the world forever. This is the story of his redemption at the hands of master storyteller Geoff Johns.
After the destruction of his hometown of Coast City at the hands of super-villain Mongul, Hal Jordan was driven to madness and destroyed the entire Green Lantern Corps. He took on the guise of Parallax and was ultimately defeated. But not without one final act of good. He sacrificed his soul to save the universe and in doing so became the host for the wrath of God, the Spectre.
After several years, the Spectre has become restless and seeks a way to prove himself worthy of his infamous reputation. See how a man born without fear, seeking to reclaim his life, puts cosmic forces into motion that will have repercussions not only on Earth but across the universe. The road to Blackest Night begins here.
Written by superstar author Geoff Johns (Doomsday Clock, Shazam!, Flashpoint) this is not only the tale of Hal Jordan's triumphant return to the DC Universe, but also the reintroduction of the Green Lantern Corps and lays the seeds for The Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night.
