*DC: The “Hot New Character” of 1960, Hal Jordan, Green Lantern, made his debut in Showcase and proved so popular that he was awarded the twin accolades of membership in the prestigious Justice League of America, and his own ongoing series! This debut issue dated July-August 1960, featured the first appearance of GL’s intergalactic mentors, the Guardians of the Universe, who previously had been operating ‘behind the scenes’. This specific copy has had its cover removed at some point, but the removal has been done neatly & without undue violence. The staples are still firmly attached, and while there is inevitably some wear to the spine, and a tiny tear at the top spine edge, the ‘guts’ are sound, clean, and the general condition may be estimated as a GD- equivalent. At £50, this is a relatively cheap opportunity to acquire a key issue of one of DC’s major players.
