Over the last couple of years DC Comics has been celebrating the 75th anniversary of their premiere characters Batman and Superman. Now its time to celebrate yet another iconic character of the famed Justice League with Green Lantern: A Celebration of 75 Years.
Much like the Batman and Superman Editions, this collection brings together some of the most important issues in the history of the Green Lantern and plays more like a history book taking the reader on a journey through the past 75 years of Earth’s own intergalactic member of the Corps. Randomly throughout the book it features chapter lead in’s dealing with that particular time and change of the character followed by issues that were important for that particular generation and evolution of where it has come to today. It does a great job of taking the reader along in more of a documentary instead of just a straight comic. Giving you all the information you need or could have wondered to bring you up to speed on every important event or issue that has cemented the various Green Lanterns as yet another iconic hero in the DC Universe. Included in this collection are stories from All-American Comics # 16, Comic Cavalcade # 6, Showcase # 22, numerous issues from the Green Lantern series’ throughout the years and so much more making this the perfect companion piece to the Superman and Batman: A Celebration of 75 Years collections.
While Superman might have been an alien, it was the Green Lantern that brought the intergalactic universe front and center to the DC Universe. This is a must have collection for anyone that has love for the Corps or just wants to add the much needed latest chapter of the 75th Anniversary hardcover to their collection.
