A mostly fun introduction of Hal Jordan. The stories are roughly split between earthbound crimefighting and cosmic adventures. There’s some throwaway Silver Age fluff, especially towards the beginning, but it’s cool to see the Green Lantern mythos expand from issue to issue. I loved “The World of the Living Phantoms,” where Hal meets Tomar-Re and helps a world whose inhabitants live in suspended animation. The pair of Sinestro stories were pretty good as well. But Hal and Carol come across as je ...more

This was a fun read, but I know now that I'm not into Silver Age comics. I just don't really find them that interesting (likely due to the CCA). I might pick up some Silver Age stuff if it's a character I really like, but otherwise I'll probably just skip it.

At the beginning of just about every issue in this collection the publishers are kind enough to remind us readers with short term memory loss that:

A) Hal Jordan is a test pilot

B) Carol Ferris is his love interest as well as his boss because
B.2) Her father is on a two year trip around the world, and

C) Green Lantern's power ring doesn't work against anything the color yellow.

If anyone should have short term memory loss it should be Green Lantern. He sure does get knocked out quite a few times in t

Well, well, well. I didn't think there'd be so much familiar stuff this far back! Of course we have Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris. But we also have The Guardians, the planet OA, Hector Hammond, Sinestro (with a YELLOW Power Ring!), the anti-universe of Qward, and much more besides.

This is where GL REALLY started!

Green Lantern: The Silver Age Vol. 1 is a collection of Green Lantern stories with Hal Jordan taking up the emerald ring. DC makes no excuses in a note at the beginning of the volume about how things weren't exactly sensitive in a lot of ways (*cough* Pieface *cough*) but its still a fun read for the most part.

Definitely worth reading to see how far Green Lantern has come or if you're a fan of the character.
