Chosen from all the people of Earth for his fearlessness by a dying space-policeman, test pilot Hal Jordan now serves the universe as a Green Lantern! This brand-new collection book continues the very earliest adventures of Hal Jordan, the second hero to take the name 'Green Lantern', including more battles against the evil Weaponeers of Qward, Hector 'The Brain' Hammond, renegade lantern Sinestro, and introducing the alien Green Lantern and galactic hero Tomar Re! Written by the character's creators, comics legends John Broome and Gil Kane, this collection is a must for "Green Lantern" fans and provides essential background to the bestselling "Sinestro Corps War" and "Blackest Night" storylines.
John Broome was one of the most successful character-creators in DC Comics' history, with credits for both Green Lantern and The Flash, alongside Per Degaton, the Elongated Man, and Detective Chimp! Broome retired from comics in 1970, teaching English in Japan until his death in 1999.
