Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Publishing.
Reason for Reading: My son loves these books and I always read them first before handing them over for bedtime story time. They are above his reading level yet.
Well I was excited as a little kid that Green Lantern and The Flash have been added to this series and couldn't wait to start reading. As usual the illustrations are DC Comics quality and there are usually two per chapter. The story here is pure superhero. Taking place entirely in outer space Green Lantern is sent on an ambassadorial mission to help two warring planets reach peace. However, as they are getting nowhere fast, they are all attacked and blame it on each other. Green Lantern investigates and finds Kiriazis, a yellow lantern, is the culprit. But while Green Lantern is battling Yellow Lantern, the Orange Lantern shows up and wants to turn everybody into his little orange minions. The Orange Lantern can only be defeated if the enemies under attack call a truce and join together against their common aggressor. A fast-paced, exciting superhero story!
