"Hal Jordan is a washed out pilot, considered too unstable to be allowed into a plane. Now, Hal is being given the chance to soar once more by rejoining the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps, the most powerful peacekeepers in the cosmos. There's just one catch. This Green Lantern ring is coming from Sinestro, one of the greatest villains the universe has ever known and a controversial addition to the Corps, to say the least. If Hal accepts Sinestro's offer, it means accepting Sinestro's terms . . . and that means rescuing the rogue Lantern's home planet from the evil army of murdererds that Sinestro himself assembled! Will Hal Jordan make a deal with the devil for a chance at redemption? Will these two sworn enemies be able to work together with lives on the line, or will this unklieliest of team-ups result in disaster for all involved?"--Back cover.

Geoff Johns was born in 1973 in Detroit, Michigan. As a child, Johns and his brother first discovered comics through an old box of comics they found in their grandmother's attic, which included copies of Flash, Superman, Green Lantern, Batman from the 1960s and 1970s. Johns eventually began to patronize a comics shop in Traverse City, recalling that the first new comics he bought were Crisis on Infinite Earth and Flash, as the latter was his favorite character. As Johns continued collecting comics, he gravitated toward DC Comics and later Vertigo Comics, and also drew comics. After graduating from Clarkston High School in 1991, he studied media arts, screenwriting, film production and film theory at Michigan State University and graduated from Michigan State in 1995. Johns met up with DC Comics personnel Eddie Berganza who invited Johns to tour the DC Comics offices, and offered Johns the opportunity to pitch ideas, which led to Johns pitching Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., a book based on the second Star-Spangled Kid and her stepfather, to editor Chuck Kim a year later. John's soon became a regular writer on such series as The Flash and The Avengers United. He also writes for series such as Teen Titans and The Future is Now. His title Earth One made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.
