Green Lantern: Earth One, Volume 1 by Gabriel Hardman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Excellent! I really enjoyed this as I have the entire Earth One series Each of these books is a new (more modern) origin story and this book introduces how Hal Jordan became a Green Lantern. I've only been reading GL since "The New 52" so am not well versed in GL origins or history but this told a great beginning for Hal which in many ways kept parts of the original tale. Hal is a former NASA employee who now works as a contract asteroid miner. He gets his ring from a dead alien GL and the first of the group he meets is Kilowog, one of my favs. The book was a fun one to read and told a strong origin story for Hal.
