origin of Green Lantern retold; classic cover
First appearing in All American #16, the Green Lantern was so popular he earned his own title. Artist Howard Purcell's iconic cover is known throughout the comic world because of the black background and dynamic rendering of our hero fighting an evildoer. The premiere issue showcases a retelling of the origin of the Golden Age Green Lantern.

Includes bios and photos of Bill Finger and Martin Nodell as well as a William Moulton Marston photo.

This 6.5 Green Lantern #1 is truly striking. The lantern backdrop and black background really make Alan Scott and his would-be assailant pop into view. With so much green in the color scheme it's a good thing the inks have held up so well as they are not one bit muddied by age or exposure.

Overstreet Guide 2019 FN+ (6.5) value = $11,900.
