Description

Two iconic comics, reproduced from cover to cover with every ad (three 80-page Giants: Secret Origins, Superman and Batman Annuals), letters page (in GL). Reproduction is top notch. The first issue of Green Lantern, 1960, directly after his Showcase tryouts, with two all new Hal Jordan as GL stories. And from 1961, the very first “Earth II” story where our modern Flash, Barry Allen, meets the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick, and together solve a mystery in a book-length, three chapter story.

The Flash #123 “Flash of Two Worlds”: The classic tale from 1961 that introduced the concept of the Multiverse to the pages of DC Comics is reprinted here! There’s a crime wave in Central City, and the Flash will need help to stop the villains’ spree — fortunately, help is on the way in the form of the Golden Age Fastest Man Alive, Jay Garrick!

Green Lantern #1: Hal Jordan’s journey as Green Lantern, finally in his own title. As the new Green Lantern of Earth, Hal’s worthiness is tested by the Guardians of Oa in “The Planet of Doomed Men!” He’s sent to save the inhabitants of the planet Calor from a beast that lives in a volcano! And in “Menace of the Giant Puppet!,” the Puppet Master forces ordinary citizens to do his criminal bidding — and targets Hal Jordan at the annual Coast City parade!

Includes cool 1/2 page ads for the other classic DC comics from then: three wonderful 8-page giants, and a (gulp) full page ad for “TV Sensation” Dobie Gillis. The letters page in Green Lantern includes a wonderful long letter from none other than Roy Thomas, who talks about (remember, this is 1960) reading comics as a kid in the golden age, and how he’s enthusiastic about the “revived FLASH and GREEN LANTERN, even if their new costumes are somewhat different.”

Roy goes on to make suggestions of a partner from GL, bringing back the Harlequin, a regular enemy for GL, “Perhaps a SHOCKMAN or some such…”
