*DC: Before John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, and the multiplicity of later claimants to the GL mantle, the idea that anyone could challenge Hal Jordan’s supremacy as Green Lantern of Earth was a shocking concept. John Broome and Gil Kane explored that in 1968’s Green Lantern #59, showing what might have happened if an equally qualified candidate had taken the role instead of Hal Jordan. Originally a one-shot novelty akin to the Superman Family’s ‘Imaginary Tales’, GL #59 spiked in price after Steve Englehart brought back Guy as a recurring character almost two decades later. Eventually Guy joined both the Green Lantern Corps and the Justice League and remains a fixture of the current DC Universe. This copy of his first appearance is a VG pence copy, sound and unmarred with excellent colour, light edge wear but unimpaired cover scene. There is a small ‘6’ in biro just over the pence distribution stamp, and a previous owner has stamped ‘Comic Room, 8 Han 1973’ on the upper back cover. Nevertheless, a clean, sound mid-grade copy of a ‘sleeper key’. VG p £90.
