Jordan was not the first to bear the mantle of the Emerald Gladiator. Alan Scott battled Nazis and costumed villains under that moniker during the Golden Age. But his day had come and gone. His light, as it were, had faded. Then came the Silver Age. With the success of the revamped Flash, DC editor Julius Schwartz decided that it was time to bring back another Golden Age favorite. With a new identity and a new look, the updated Green Lantern immediately struck a chord with fans who clamored for tales of adventure and ingenuity. After three wildly successful appearances in SHOWCASE, Hal was given his own eponymous book. The eight issues included in this volume (GREEN LANTERN #22-29) find the Emerald Gladiator doing battle with the Tattooed Man, Sonar, Star Sapphire, the Shark and other extraordinary foes. Under the auspices of the classic creative team of John Broome, Gardner Fox, Gil Kane, Joe Giella (with an assist from Murphy Anderson), Frank Giacoia and Sid Greene, the Green Lantern's light was never more radiant than it was during these halcyon days of comicdom. Brightest day, indeed!
