Man, I'm really digging the GREEN LANTERN books right now! I've always thought the premise was cool, but the characters, art and stories either bored me and/or came off as too silly. But right now, for the first time, they're fun, cool and interesting; still not quite where I'd like em, but no complaints!

Above are my favorite Green Lanterns. Sure, they're pretty much all the main players, but there are a few I left out that I don't dig (*coughG'Mortcough*). I will say, that alot of my current geeky enjoyment of the characters and books rely heavily on the ART. Above: Clockwise, starting Top-Left: Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Alan Scott, Kilowog, Soranik Natu, John Stewart and Salaak. I'm also starting to like rookie R’Amey Holl (pic right) who made her first appearance 2 issues ago in GLC#7.

Recommended GL Reading:
Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight & New Dawn eh/ok - but sets up "Rebirth" - Hal's city gets nuked by a villain & he goes crazy, fighting his way through the Corps to get more power with their rings to bring the city back! The Corps are destroyed! - then the intro of Kyle Rayner's character.
Green Lantern: Rebirth The Return & Redemption of Hal Jordan! Soooo many cool moments in this one!
Green Lantern Corps: Recharge The Corps are brought back! Guy Gardner becomes a great character!
Green Lantern: Revenge of the Green Lanterns Some of Hal's past comes back to haunt him!
Green Lantern Vs ALIENS Simply "What If?" fun. Its Green Lantern mooshed into the first 2 ALIEN movies.

Here's a big group shot of the Corps from years past:
