    Green Lantern #1 (DC, 1941) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. The premiere issue of Green Lantern's solo title is ranked by Overstreet as one of the twenty most valuable comic books of all. The hero had more than earned his own book after successful appearances in All-American Comics, and this issue started a long and successful run -- except for taking the 1950s off along with most every other superhero, Green Lantern has been in near-continuous publication from the 1940s through the present day. The origin of Alan Scott, the Golden Age bearer of the ring, is retold in this issue, which features a cover by Howard Purcell and interior art by GL's creator Martin Nodell. Gerber's Photo-Journal gives this issue its "scarce" rating, estimating that less than 50 copies exist. Overstreet 2004 FN 6.0 value = $8,823; VF 8.0 value = $23,500. CGC census 12/04: 5 in 7.0, 7 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
