GREEN LANTERN EMERALD DAWN #1 was the start of the origin for the Post-Crisis Hal Jordan. It had Hal serving 90 days on a drunk driving charge, and also established a lot of the "Hal Jordan: Screw-up!" characterization that was very common for a while. Still is, in some ways.

"The Green Lantern basically refers to the Green Lantern, the essential power battery, that doesn't necessarily refer to Hal at all. It actually came from a movie in Britain called The Blue Lamp. It was a police movie, a very early police series, and it gave rise to sort of a famous 1960s police drama which ran for 200 years. It ran until the gang died on the job, basically. The Blue Lamp is the police lamp that hangs outside all the British police stations. So, I just thought, it's The Blue Lamp… The Green Lantern, it's the same thing. It's the science fiction version of that concept. So, it was very much, we wanted to have that The Blue Lamp, The Green Lantern, and so it does, it refers to the concept, rather than to the man.” - Grant Morrison

"Making the Justice League fit into a horror book was largely a problem of approach. What I decided to go for was a more oblique and shadowy representation of the JLA. They appear a little weirder and ominous and more frightening, unknowable entities of immense power that sit up there in space and watch over the affairs of men."
--Alan Moore, The Comics Journal 93 (Sept. 1984), 84.
