For DC he has written Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.S., The Flash, Green Lantern and the enormously popular JSA with David Goyer and helped revitalize Hawkman with James Robinson. From the Hardcover edition.

Reviews

Behind every good superhero is a good origin story, and the Green Lantern gets his in this action-packed volume, illustrated by fan-favorite Reis (Blackest Night; Justice League of America). Hal Jordan is a talented pilot with a tragic past and a reckless streak that eventually gets him banned from the cockpit. While working as a mechanic at a desert airfield, Jordan discovers the crash site of a mysterious craft. The injured alien inside, a member of the Green Lantern Corps, appoints Jordan as his successor, gives him an all-powerful ring, and then dies without offering any further guidance. Still uncertain of the extent of his powers, Jordan must team up with another member of the Green Lantern Corps to save Earth from a brutal, blood-thirsty demon. Verdict Secret Origin portrays Jordan as a likable character despite his arrogant nature and lays a solid foundation for the Green Lantern's future exploits. Heavy on the explosions and a bit light on psychological depth, this book will mainly appeal to those who are fans of the DC universe and other superhero story lines. A worthy addition to any diverse teen or adult graphic novel collection.
