Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular

The latest DC 80th anniversary issue celebrates various Green Lantern characters including Alan Scott (the Golden Age Green Lantern who isn't part of the Green Lantern Corps) but there are some notable absences of fan favorites as well such as Ch'p, Arisia Rrab, Katma Tui, Tomar-Re, G'nort, or Sojourner Mullein (who is at least included in a one-page art insert).

Along with the Alan Scott story, we get Earth's greatest Green Lantern Hal Jordan in stories involving being trapped on a desolate world with his power ring running out, a team-up with Green Arrow written by Dennis O'Neil, and a story featuring Hal, John Stewart (who also gets a solo story), and Kyle Rayner (who sadly also gets a solo story) set years in the future.

Guy Gardner and Kilowog are given a tale with a fun twist, Sinestro tortures a Green Lantern in his story, and Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz overcome fear and hatred respectively in their solo tales. Like similar recent one-shots from DC, this one's mostly for fans.

[DC, $9.99]
