DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
crm/ow pgs; Sl/Mod(A-2) ct, pcs added, tr seals, cleaned, reinf.
classic Shelly Moldoff cvr; origin & 1st app of Green Lantern (Alan Scott); Comic Book Impact rating of 8 (CBI)
Railroad engineer Alan Scott stumbles upon a magical lantern which speaks to him and offers him unimaginable power. Scott fashions a ring from the lantern, and beings a lifelong career as a superheroic defender of justice, as the mighty Green Lantern! With all the hubbub and hullabaloo over this character of late, it's refreshing to see that folks are aware of the original GL, whose bracing adventures added both mystical pizazz and streetwise grit to the DC character stable. Dependable craftsman Sheldon Moldoff lends a moody air to the colorful hero's debut appearance, and the atmospheric cover jumped out at newsstands and grabbed readers, and the GL mythology hasn't let go since. Without this issue and this story, the cosmic scope of DC's hero universe may never have been established, and with this character, DC proved that wide variety of characters with a smorgasbord of styles could very successfully compete on the increasingly hectic hero comic market. Possibly the toughest of all Golden Age DC keys, this is a book for the true connoiseour.
