Anybody have a sec to help out a noobie? Whats the best Green Lantern storyline, series, writers or era, just looking for the right place to go to get introduced to this character and see what all the hype is about. Thanks to anyone who posts.

Pretty much everything from GL: Rebirth to Brightest Day. It's quite a read, but worth it (this includes Green Lantern and GL Corps, as well as the specific event issues)

Current run by Geoff Johns.

agreed with what has been stated so far very much!!!

I also feel that emerald twilight was a good read, and essential understanding of the GL storyline....it lead us into Kyle Raynor after all!!!

Yes, the current run by Geoff Johns! Once I started reading I liked it so much that it kept me from reading more from my actual favorite character (Flash)
