Description

Two new members of the galaxy's greatest peacekeeping force are here in GREEN LANTERNS VOL. 1: RAGE PLANET, as a part of the critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!
 
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! Collects GREEN LANTERNS: REBIRTH #1 and GREEN LANTERNS #1-6.
