But when a primal being named Atrocitus emerges from that hell planet, he leads a Red Lantern Corps against Jordan and his brethren in a campaign to spread rage across the cosmos.

I have read a lot of Green Lantern comic books. Geoff Johns is really good. This book was fairly good though you really need to read the Sinestro Corps war first.

Following the events of the Sinestro Corps War and "Green Lantern Corps - Volume 3: Ring Quest" where many of the rings of the Lanterns lost in war search out new recruits, Hal Jordan investigates the appearance of Blue Lanterns and now Red Lanterns. A prophecy states their appearance foreshadows the Blackest Night.

This graphic novel is set after the Sinestro corps war and primarily introduces the Red and Blue Lanterns (see summary). Excellent writing and artwork.

The Sinestro Corps War is over. The greatest Green Lantern of all, Hal Jordan, has triumped over his arch enemy Sinestro. Willpower has conquered fear. Now, the War of Light begins...

A new Corps rises, and the anger that burns through their veins is every bit as deadly as the napalm that spews from their mouths. Consumed by hatred, Atrocitus and the Red Lanterns demand revenge by spilling the blood of Sinestro and the Green Lantern Corps.

Only Hal Jordan can protect them from the Red Lanterns' uncontrollable rage and violence. But will his own great hatred of Sinestro drive him to take up their cause?
