    Description

    Green Lantern #1 (DC, 1960) CGC NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. The Flash ushered in the Silver Age of comics, and another updated DC Golden Age super-hero kept the momentum going before Marvel was even in the starting blocks. The revamped Green Lantern was practically assured instant success with scripting by John Broome and art by Gil Kane, who arguably turned in the best work of his illustrious career on this character. Kane was more than ably aided by Murphy Anderson and Joe Giella. G.L.'s origin is retold here, and the Guardians of the Universe make their first appearance. Just one other copy of this premiere issue has earned a higher grade from CGC to date. And this key book seems to be undervalued compared to other keys from the period. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $4,200.
