Our previously-listed spotlight this week falls on a cornerstone of the DCU. 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 is a GD+ copy, nice and bright, presenting well. Moderate spine and corner wear, two tiny chips out bottom front cover edge. Light creasing bottom right corner cover, with three tiny pressure marks on cover which not impairing the image. 1.5″ magic tape to top spine. A highly presentable copy of the premier issue, at £400.
