    Default Green Lantern - If You Had To Choose 7

    You want to introduce someone to the wondrous world of Green Lantern, but you can only choose 7 stories, arcs, books or trades to introduce to them. What do you choose?

    DC: The New Frontier

    Tales of the Green Lantern Corps

    Green Lantern: Space Sector 2814

    Green Lantern by Geoff Johns Omnibus

    I think that'd do, and probably works out to about 7 books

    3. Geoff Johns presents Green Lantern (new omnibus)
    4. Hal Jordan and the Green Lanterns

    The three Sector 2814 trades.

    The Green Lantern Corps (80s series)

    The Road Back

    Mosaic

    Emerald Twilight/New Dawn

    Those more or less encompass the best GL stories, in my opinion.

    The Green Lantern Corps and Mosaic aren't collected (at least I don't believe GLC is completely collected), but anyone with an eBay account should be able to collect them without too much trouble.

    1. Tales of the Green Lantern Corps vol. 1 - the great 1981 miniseries by Barr/Wein/Station + the best GLC short stories

    2. Green Lantern by Geoff Johns Omnibus vol. 1

    3. Silver Age GL vol. 1 - the "original" origin for the Green Lantern mythology - Hal Jordan, Sinestro, the Guardians, Qward, Abin Sur, Hector Hammond, etc.

    4. Tales of the GLC vol. 2 - the remainder of the alien stories

    5. The Road Back - the best use of the multiple Earth Lanterns concept

    Most of these are stand-alone stories, or new starting points - with the exception of the Johns run. Hopefully Morrison's run ends up being on par with his Superman and Batman work. If so, I'd add that.
