ok, this volume collects the first few issues of a classic Len Wein/Dave Gibbons run on Green Lantern. after finishing up a year long exile in space, Hal Jordan returns to Earth and his life with Carol Ferris. of course, calamity ensues, and GL finds himself fighting such crazy foes as The Javelin, The Shark, and the Demolition Team! yeah!

ok, these villains are hokey, even for the Bronze Age, but that's just fine! Wein does a pretty good job with the various fight scenes, and even comes up with

there is something odd about green lantern. often when i am reading a hal jordan as green lantern tale i get the feeling that hal isn't the smartest cookie in the jar. this collection does little to dispel that idea.

very much old school comics and that makes it all the more enjoyable.
len wein's writing is solid, if in places silly. dave gibbons art strong and clean.

the volume starts off with hal making a plea to the guardians to return to earth and ends with a plea from hal to the guardians t

I know that this is the type of comic book writing and storytelling that make some of today’s audiences cringe, but to me it’s the absolute heyday of comic perfection! This is the period of comics that I grew up reading and loving. I time before everything became so serious. This story takes place about a year before the universe shattering “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” occurs and even features The Monitor.
This volume checks a lot of boxes on my great comic book checklist. First a soapy, melodra

Oh dear me, Hal is such a total dick. The endless whining over being ordered to save a planet from planetary catastrophe that might have wiped out billions, his tantrum at the Guardians because his girlfriend pulls a "the ring or me!" on him, the whole me me me thing that runs through the entire book and gets *very* tiring very quickly. In short, Hal...is a dick.

This is also where the whole squicky business with Arisia takes hold, too (she's a young teenage Lantern; eventually she decides she's

After reading Geoff Johns’s definitive take on GL, I didn’t think anyone else could come close. Len Wein and Dave Gibbons sure do! As Hal struggles to balance his obligations to the Corps, he faces foes like the Shark and the Demolition Team. Great character work here, and the art is predictably fantastic.

Clasicote como él solo. Diálogos sobreexplicativos, villanos ridículos... Pero con más de una sorpresa por ahí. Y bueno, el dibujo... Ay, el dibujo.

Recopila la etapa pos-exilio pero pre-crisis de Hal Jordan, con guiones de Wein y dibujos de Gibbons. Incluye los "crossovers" de la serie con CoIE.

Con la presente reseña, llego a mis primeros 200 libros leídos ¡Todo un logro!
Posiblemente, uno de los personajes con una mitología un tanto desaprovechada, pero extrañamente, tan rica como la del hombre de acero, la amazona o el caballero de la noche el guardián esmeralda en su encarnación de Hal Jordan nos muestra en el presente libro un héroe muy adelantado a su época. Se nos vendió que los héroes de la Distinguida Competencia eran siempre perfectos, sin mancha alguna en su historial personal

Buenas historias, buen dibujo, buena narrativa. De esos tebeos que, sin ser obras maestras, te hacen disfrutar un buen rato.

Pretty good post-Silver Age story-writing. This is from the often-overlooked era of Green Lantern comics. Post-O'Neil/Adams, but pre-Emerald Dawn.

Fun pre-Crisis stories whose main appeal is the Dave Gibbons art. Honestly, was the Demolition Team taken seriously in 1984?

I love Hal Jordan's Green Lantern but Gibbon's rudimentary art (he's often genius) is not enough to lift these stories out of it's 80's-ishness.
