Here are two examples of two times Hal Jordan, having just gotten his Green Lantern ring for the first time, needed a mask in a hurry. One time he wanted one. The other time...

History repeats... sort of. )

GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD DAWN I and II was the post-Crisis origin of Hal Jordan as Green Lantern. It added the odd "Hal Jordan was convicted of drunk driving and served 90 days" that was dropped by INFINITE CRISIS. But it put elements to Sinestro's background that have continued to this day, although rarely expanded upon.

So, how sympathetic should Thaal Sinestro be? Did he do all he could to protect his world and then got screwed over for it? Why did he take over Korugar in the first place?

They needed me! )

I just found my copy of "The Shadow Strikes!" #7, March 1990, which is a tribute to another Shadow incarnation, the radio show.

Eight pages of twenty-four of the lead story, one page of three of the backup feature.

Criminals are a cowardly, superstitious lot )

Your thoughts and comments?

Remember, the weed of crime bears bitter fruit! The Shadow knows!

We return to the mixed-up crazy crack of the Amalgam Universe with one of the most requested titles from our last go around.

Combining the preachiness and messiah complex of Max/Erik "Magnus" Eisenhardt/Lensherr and the eccentric scheming of Dr. Will "Balls Crazy" Magnus gets you...

Magnetic Men... how do they work? )

7 and 1/3 pages from 23 page Magneto and the Magnetic Men #1.

For the entirety of the crossover the Parasites attacks were very US based (as the aliens ship crashed near Metropolis), the only attacks that occurred outside of the US was this annual in which some of the Parasites come to England. (Though the latest New Blood related story seems to imply despite what we see of the Parasites attack patterns they likely did go global but that's a post for another day)

18 pages from a 54 page story.

The Blood comes to England and Lionheart will defend his country! )

In the early 1990s DC tried to relaunch the Green Lantern comic(cancelled a decade ago) under Gerard Jones. Hal Jordan was rescued from the depravity of his Action Comics Weekly days and restored to his status as the main Green Lantern. However sales remained low, and it looked like Green Lantern would be cancelled once again. So DC ran the infamous Emerald Twilight story arc, where Hal went mad and destroyed the Green Lantern Corps, followed by a new, younger character, Kyle Rayner, taking over the Green Lantern mantle.

But wait! Even before Emerald Twilight DC already had plan for replacing Hal Jordan and breathing new life into the Green Lantern series. Gerard Jones had a story arc planned from #48-50(which would eventually become Emerald Twilight) that would bring an end to Hal's career as Green Lantern.

Earlier I posted scans from Hal Jordan's old Green Lantern run, showing his eventual attempts at recovering from the aimless drifter his character had become over the 70s and 80s before Emerald Twilight put an end to it. Continuing from there...

1 scan from GL v.3 #26, 5 from #32, 6 from #33, 6 from #34 & 6 from #35 )

When I first read Green Lantern, I was already well into the Kyle Rayner era. Later, reading up on Hal Jordan, I gathered that his character went a slow degradation over the 70s and 80s, starting with quitting his job and getting dumped by Carol Ferris, then wandering from job to job, girlfriend to girlfriend, and ultimately ending up as a middle-aged, unemployed loser.

I've started reading his old series only recently, and I found that towards the end Hal was actually starting to recover and get his life back on track. Read more... )
