Hal Jordan was an ace test pilot with a reputation for daring and fearlessness. Chosen by the Guardians of the Universe to become Earth's Green Lantern, Jordan became an intergalactic hero protecting his home world and the universe from threats both terrestrial and alien, armed with a power ring that makes real anything its wearer can imagine, the Green Gladiator shines his emerald light on injustice everywhere...

The third volume of Showcase's Green Lantern series of reprints, starring the ring-wielding champion of Sector 2814, includes return engagements against many of his mightiest foes, including the beautiful and deadly Star Sapphire, the renegade Green Lantern Sinestro, Evil Star, Major Disaster and others... often with such allies as the Golden Age Green Lantern, the Flash, the other members of the Green Lantern Corps, and Zatanna. This volume also sees the introduction of substitute Green Lantern Guy Gardner and reveals, at last, the secret origin of the Guardians.

Over 500 pages of classic Green Lantern adventures, from the pages of Green Lantern issues #39 through to #59 (covering 1965 to 1968) - in total you get 27 of the Emerald Warrior's most incredible adventures... what more could Green Lantern fans ask for?

While some might bemoan the fact that this collection is in black and white, others will champion the fact that they can own so many of the Green Lantern's early adventures for such a low price.

Sure the stories haven't aged that well and the chances are most people will read this once and never pick it up again but, if you're a old comic book fan, you'll leap at the chance to own this.
