Description

In brightest day and in blackest night, for three-quarters of a century, the hero known as Green Lantern has protected not just Earth, but the entire universe.

Bringing together stories from more than seven decades of comics, GREEN LANTERN: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS features stories from all of Earth’s Green Lanterns—from the wartime avenger Alan Scott to brash Guy Gardner, from solemn John Stewart to young, cool Kyle. And, of course, read the rise, fall and redemption of the greatest Green Lantern of them all, Hal Jordan.

This crash course in the history of the Emerald Crusader contains GL’s Golden Age debut by Bill Finger and Martin Nodell and Silver Age reinvention at the hands of John Broome and Gil Kane, up through his modern adventures by Geoff Johns. Other legendary talents featured include Alex Toth, Dennis O’Neil, Neal Adams, Mike Grell, Darwyn Cooke, Ethan Van Sciver and Doug Mahnke.
