GREEN LANTERN COVER GALLERY...
The first version of GREEN LANTERN appeared in 1940 in the pages of ALL-AMERICAN COMICS #16, and was railroad engineer ALAN SCOTT. However, he's not the Green Lantern we're interested in, that particular accolade belonging to test pilot HAL JORDAN, who made his debut in SHOWCASE #22 in 1959 as part of NPP/DC COMICS editor JULIUS SCHWARTZ's SILVER AGE attempt to revive superheroes. Over the years, the history of GL and the GREEN LANTERN CORPS has become increasingly convoluted (to say nothing of boring - to me at least), so I won't attempt to explain it all here.
Instead, let's just look at some fantastic covers from a time when comicbooks were a lot less complicated - and far more interesting and entertaining. Hey, here's a novel notion - do you think there might be a connection there? So, who's your favourite Green Lantern? Let the world know in our controversial comments section!
All together now:
"In brightest day... in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight!
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my power - -
Green Lantern's Light!"
