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 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!"
