Silver Age Green Lantern Comic Book Price Guide

Silver Age Green Lantern comic book price guide

After Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern (click for our article on values), made his last appearance in 1951, there was not a single appearance of the Emerald Gladiator in any comic books for eight years.

The Golden Age had ended, and superhero comics had gone the way of hoop skirts and high-button shoes, pushed aside by Westerns.

When Green Lantern would finally reappear in 1959, he came bearing a different costume, different powers, a different origin story, and a different secret identity, in Showcase Comics (click for full article).

While Green Lantern's popularity may never match Spider-Man's, and while Showcase #22 may never be worth as much as Amazing Fantasy #15, it's a good idea to dig out your old Silver Age GL comics, and get a fix on what they're worth.

Just as they had rebooted GL and Flash, DC Comics decided in March of 1960 to reboot their original super team, the Justice Society of America, as the Justice League of America. (Click to read full article.)

Just as the JSA had been the first super team comic of the Golden Age, the JLA was the first of the Silver Age. (Marvel would mimic this with The Fantastic Four comic soon after.)

The comic they launched in was Brave and the Bold #28.

Green Lantern was included in the lineup of the JLA, along with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and J'onn J'onnz, the Martian Manhunter.

Along for the ride was Snapper Carr, JLA mascot, in the role that Johnny Thunder had played in the JSA comics.

History of the Silver Age Green Lantern Comic Series

DC Comics had decided that the era of Westerns was finally over. Batman and Superman had made it through the '50s intact, and after the very successful reboot of the Flash (replacing Jay Garrick with a newcomer named Barry Allen) in 1956, the powers that be decided to give GL the same treatment. 

In October of 1959, the new Green Lantern made his debut in Showcase #22, the same comic in which the new Flash had made his first appearance.

Test pilot Hal Jordan had been installed as GL, and for all intents and purposes, it was as if railroad engineer Alan Scott had never existed.

While DC would later connect the Golden Age and Silver Age via the Earth Two/Earth One schema (and subsequently destroy that arrangement in 1986's Crisis on Infinite Earths mini-series), in 1959 only one thing really mattered: Green Lantern was back!

The first issue featured an origin story that had test pilot Hal Jordan summoned to the side of a dying alien, Abin Sur, a member of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps.

Hal finds out about the Corps., the ring's powers and its weaknesses (it had to be recharged regularly and was powerless against anything colored yellow), and agrees to become the official Green Lantern for the sector of the galaxy that includes earth. 

In two stories written by DC mainstay John Broome and penciled by then-relative-newcomer Gil Kane, Green Lantern showed that he had what it took for the Silver Age.

Gil Kane designed GL's new costume, a marvel of space-age design. His dynamic pencil work would be associated with the Emerald Gladiator for many years, and is considered by many to be the definitive GL artist.

Neal Adams Reboot of the Green Lantern comic series

In Green Lantern v2 #76, Green Lantern has a new partner: Green Arrow, who helps open Hal Jordan's eyes up to injustice here on earth, and places him in conflict for the first time with the Guardians. 

This issue begins a new phase for GL, with stories that were more concerned with gritty urban drama and injustice than with cosmic grandeur and saving other planets.

Eventually this trend would result in a storyline involving Green Arrow's young sidekick, Speedy (a member of the Teen Titans by this point) battling a heroin addiction. 

With script by Denny O'Neil and art by the inimitable Neal Adams, this begins a long run of very desirable GL/GA comics, all of which are valuable to collectors.
