(Y-11) Old School Monday…Showcase(1956-1978) # 22

Hello again, on this Monday I read the first appearance of Test Pilot and Green Lantern Hal Jordan.

This story was originally printed on September 1959, it was written by John Broome and illustrated by the legendary Gil Kane.

They were looking a way to reintroduce the character but making different from the first Green Lantern in the DC Universe, Alan Scott.

Since the space race craze was in full swing, a space policeman was just perfect for the era.

My favorite part was the now classic Green Lantern oath, to think that one of the most iconic lines is now 60 years old.

This particular version that I read is an Spanish reprint of the original book, and it is sold in a sealed pack containing some blind comic books, encase in a foil wrap, from the modern DC Comics era, it is well worth the price in order to read this classic tale.

Next week I’ll start with the origin story of Wonder Woman, than means All-Star Comics and the Justice Society of America.

Now, off to read.
