Fear has a color. It’s the gruesome glow of yellow, wielded by the totalitarian tyrant Sinestro and his Yellow Lanterns. And now the entire universe is bathed in its sinister light. The Sinestro Corps have replaced the Green Lanterns as the peacekeepers of the galaxy.
Oa, the homeworld of the Guardians and their Green Lantern Corps, is no more. In its place at the center of the universe orbits Warworld, Sinestro’s home base. The Green Lanterns have vanished, leaving no one to oppose the Sinestro Corps’ reign of terror.
No one, that is, except the last Lantern: Hal Jordan.
Convicted of crimes he didn’t commit, reduced to a being of pure thought and will, Hal must now battle back from the brink to reform the Corps and free all of creation from his archenemy’s iron fist.
Sinestro’s word is law…but Hal Jordan is the lawbreaker!

One is all impulse. The other, all anxiety. Together, they put the “green” in Green Lantern.
Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz are the latest recruits to the Green Lantern Corps. They’ve proven themselves capable of overcoming great fear alongside the Corps and the Justice League alike. Now Hal Jordan himself has assigned them the task of protecting the planet. But they’re still new to the job, with very little experience and a whole lot to prove.
That makes them the perfect targets.
One of the Green Lanterns’ greatest enemies has returned, and he has the Earth in his sights. He is Atrocitus, the tyrannical leader of the Red Lanterns, and he means to infect the entire planet with his murderous red rage.
Can Jessica and Simon overcome their differences and wield the Green Lantern’s light like true partners? Or will these rookies’ rage help the Red Lanterns extinguish that light for good?
Blazing forth from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event comes GREEN LANTERNS VOL. 1: RAGE PLANET, the start of a thrilling saga starring all-new, all-different heroes from the creative team of Sam Humphries (Uncanny X-Force) and Robson Rocha (EARTH 2: WORLD’S END)—featuring contributions from superstars Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, Ed Benes, Tom Derenick and more!
