Just started reading volume 4, just planned on reading the GL stuff and then maybe coming back through reading the rest like GLC, etc. or will I miss too much to know what's going on if I skip any?

I think War of the Green Lanterns is a GL / GLC crossover.

You should be fine until post-Blackest Night. Like the previous user said, War of the Green Lanterns is a crossover between GL, GLC and Emerald Warriors. But I'd suggest reading GLC as you go with GL. At times, its the far better comic and spotlights a lot more characters than GL.

You should also keep in mind that some titles already went OOP like The Dark Side of Green. Get them while they're still cheap.

Do you know what issues are OOP?

If anybody gets Day of Judgment and think it should be added, let me know. I know its when Hal becomes the Spectre and if it includes that then it should probably she be included.

I think the War of the Green Lanterns is too, but I don't check on a regular basis. When I tried to order my copy at amazon I noticed this. It's OOP for a couple of years now...

http://www.amazon.com/Green-Lantern-...+side+of+green

Keep in mind that I'm talking about the trade, maybe you can get a hold of the floppies. Paying over 30$ for a trade does seem a bit expensive though.

Its crazy how prices sneak up on these. I was lucky to get Power of Ion at retail price but had to pay a premium for Emerald Twighlight/New Dawn.

As Heide mentioned in another thread:
JLA: A Midsummer's Nightmare
- Kyle joins the JLA
- needs to go before Final Night

JLA: New World Order
- Superman lost his power
- no yet Superman blue
- comes after Final Night


IMO Grant Morrison's JLA run should be metioned in this list as there's quite some character development for Kyle in this.

I guess I can narrow it down a little bit. It features Hal's magic duplicating ring from Emerald Knights so it has to come afterwards.

I've been using this list for the past year and finally into New 52. This list (or thread) hasn't been updated in well over a year. I think this should be pinned and would be awesome if it was updated for new fans who are looking to get into reading.

I also use http://www.readingorders.com/Collections/GreenLantern for my Reading Order, but this had JL in there, which I picked up because of this list and found this to be the most accurate and best.

It was pinned for a time. I will certainly update ASAP.

Updated the GL portions but still have to do the Justice League/Event comics.

Hi! No, I had a dumb question about the Revenge of the Black Hand and The End collected editions, whether owning them would be unnecessary in light of the upcoming Omnibus #3. Apparently both of those novels will be included, so I'll have to sell my copies unread!

And hey, thanks for asking

Wanted to stop by and make a note for New 52 readers. Some of the books listed are actually collections of Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, New Guardians, and Red Lanterns.

For example:
1. Green Lantern: Rise of the Third Army (Green Lantern 13-14, GLC 13-15, GLNG 13-16, RL 13-16, GL 15-16, GLC #16, GLC Annual #1)
2. Green Lantern: The End (GL Zero Issue, GL 13-20)
3. Green Lantern Corps: Willpower (GLC Annual #1, GLC 15-20)
4. New Guardians: Love and Death (Green Lantern #20, GLNG Zero Issue, GLNG 13-20)
5. Red Lanterns: The Second Prophecy (Green Lantern #20, RL Zero Issue, RL 13-20)
6. Green Lantern: The Wrath of the First Lantern (Green Lantern 17-20, GLC 17-20, GLNG 17-20, RL 17-20)

1 is the collection of issues 13-16 of all series.
2 is GL.
3 is GLC.
4 is NG.
5 is RL.

6 is the collection of issues 17-20 of all series.

I wanted to mention this because I've been buying every book from this list from Rebirth to mid-way through New 52 and noticed I've been reading issues I've already read starting in New 52. It's because some of the books (Rise of the Third Army and Wrath of the First Lantern) collect ALL the series into one under that particular plot. Which is cool and all, but if you bought the other ones, you can usually disregard buying those. Double check the issue lists, that will help your reading order. In my list above, either buy the bold books or the italic books, or you'll be reading duplicates.

I've actually quit buying the graphic novels after this whole deal. It's like I wasted a lot of money and half the books on my shelf to read, I've already read. Instead, I bought the single issues for all of them. Which sounds crazy but, at least I know I don't have books that repeat what I've already read. Hope that helps!

Wait, how is this confusing? The list says which issues each collection contains.

Because for years, I just went down the list and bought the trades in order. I didn't need to read which issues were in each book. It's a newer concept that collected issues from the series that started in New 52. You didn't need to double check on the issue lists until New 52.

Thanks for adding valuable input. Yeah, that was sarcasm.

Oh, so you didn't actually read the list?

Got it.

Yeah, I didn't fully read each issue collected in each trade that was listed. That, I've explained twice before this. It really took you awhile to figure that out. If it happened to me, it could definitely happen to others. Therefor, I wanted to mention this in hopes to help someone else out. But it was super important for you to get your post in to show everyone how much of an ignorant asshole you are. I tried helping someone while you attempted to ridicule someone. I really hope that helps you stand up a little taller today and sleep better tonight because inside, you're just pathetic.
