Fun collection with some very nice artwork Good writing with very simple storylines that move along at a fast pace I loved the sci fi aspects of the stories and for the character of Green Lantern The Green Lantern symbolemblem is iconic and I liked the Inuit character Thomas Kalmaku He was a good sidekick that provided some laughs My favorite issues were the invisible destroyer storyline from Showcase #23 and Green Lantern #5 A very good collection of the silver age and most recognizablemost popular version of the Green Lantern I enjoyed my first official introduction to the character very much download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ã John Broome

John Broome à 3 review

John Broome à 3 review Urreal foes such as the Invisible Destroyer and the Giant Puppet In these timeless tales we see how an ordinary man begins his journey of becoming one of the world's greatest champions. A little hokey but all comics at the dawn of the silver age were Leagues better than Batman Chronicles 1 which was hilariously bad Probably not the best comparison I bet the first few golden age GLs were just as bad If you want to start at a beginning for GL this is a good place Then skip ahead to the 80s90s to catch Hal Jordan's downfall or skip directly to Rebirth for his redemption You'll miss some great Sinestro in the intervening years but there's plenty from Emerald Dawn forward to enjoy
