Overview

Hal Jordan, introduced as Green Lantern at the end of the 1950s, quickly became known as the greatest of the intergalactic corps of lawmen known as the Green Lanterns—as well as the symbol of DC's move into the Silver Age of comics, with a career as a test pilot as well as close alliances with the Flash and the rest of the Justice League of America.

"IN BRIGHTEST DAY, IN BLACKEST NIGHT, NO EVIL SHALL ESCAPE MY SIGHT! LET THOSE WHO WORSHIP EVIL'S MIGHT BEWARE MY POWER—GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT!"

With these words, dauntless test pilot Hal Jordan took up the challenge of battling evil using the greatest power source in the universe—the Green Lantern! A courageous space explorer like Hal was just the man to don the mantle of heroism as the world turned its attention to the stars during the 1960s. His intergalactic adventures echoed the spirit of discovery that defined the Space Age, but for Green Lantern, it was the Silver Age!

Join Green Lantern on his quest to bring justice to our world—and beyond the stars! This volume of Hal's iconic adventures features appearances by Carol Ferris, the Star Sapphires, and the Green Lantern Corps.

About the Author

Born in 1913, John Broome started out his writing career selling science fiction stories to the pulp magazines of the 1930s. His agent for those stories was Julius Schwartz, who in 1945 would join DC Comics' staff as an editor and, over the next 40 years, be responsible for some of the most innovative comics of his time. Broome's first comic book sale was to Fawcett Comics for the South Seas adventure strip Lance O'Casey. More work for Fawcett followed, including on Captain Marvel, before World War II interrupted his writing career. When he was released from the service, he looked up his old friend Julius Schwartz at DC and, for more than 20 years, made his creative home there, writing countless scripts for numerous features, including the Golden Age Green Lantern, Justice Society of America, Captain Comet, the Silver Age revival of Green Lantern, the Atomic Knights, Star Hawkins, Rex the Wonder Dog, Detective Chimp and a variety of science fiction tales. Broome retired from comic books in the 1970s and settled in Japan, where he taught English. John Broome died in Thailand in March 1999.
