Green Lantern is an ongoing American comic-book series featuring the DC Comics heroes of the same name. The character's first incarnation, Alan Scott, appeared in All-American Comics (July 1940), and was later spun off into the first volume. The character's first incarnation, Alan Scott, appeared in All-American Comics (July 1940), and was later spun off into the first volume of Green Lantern in 1941. That series was cancelled in 1949 after 38 issues. When the Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, was introduced, the character starred in a new volume of Green Lantern starting in 1960.

Showcase Green Lantern v. 4 helped me reconnect with the comics of my youth . For Green Lantern, I was particularly interested in what I call the Gil Kane era, even though 6 issues in this volume were the work of other artists. This volume was shorter than most of the Showcase Presents volumes, but that was a proper division. It ended with Green Lantern the last issue drawn by Kane and written by John Broome. The next issue would herald Denny O'Neil's new storylines, and the art of Neal Adams, and this allows those stories to have their own volume.

(I have been reading GL for over 30 years.) The Showcase Presents; Green Lantern, Vol 5 had the GL/GA stories and the short GL stories that appeared in The Flash (#217-246, not inclusive) The GL/GA stories were both interesting and annoying. I read theses stories when they originally came out and I found the social subject interesting but the conclusions were very packed - clique, simple, easy - and reality is not like that. And sadly, all the social issues we still have today. I did not care for GA being so ... rightist. He has most of the answers. He "feels" for all. He is ... annoying, and a bore. GL during this became the wimp, the patsy, the ignorant and more. I disagree with both these descriptions of GL and GA. The short GL stories were good and he finally went back into space. And for me, the very best ... Itty appears. I have always liked this alien, a lot. And I'm very happy to read it's story again. (I cannot remember if Itty was male or female. Oh well.
Should you buy or read these issues? Yes. If for no other reason than to know what others are talking about. And for Itty.

This is a must read because this collection dealt with something that was very controversial at the time racism and drug use. You have to understand back then you had a clash of generations that abhorred drug use and a rebelling youth that used drugs to defile their elders and the DC Universe did something which was ahead of its time and actually talked about it. Green Arrows ward Speedy was addicted to drugs and Green Arrow brushed him off which made them part ways which is reminiscent of the problems of the youth of today his words still echo of the problems that youth had at that time had and still do today as mentioned below:

I'm sharing a very small piece of the pain I've just gone through these past few days. The kind of pain thousands of kids are going through every day because an uncaring and unthinking society turns its back on them. Drugs are a symptom... and you... like the rest of society... attack the symptom... not the disease! But this symptom is worse than most -- it maims... it pains... it dims you. It drives you to the edge of insanity and over... and one day ends your trip on a slab in the morgue... with a tag around your toe.
-- Speedy

Another thing about this volume is you can pick it up and relate to it you do not need to know about the back-story of the Green Lantern or Green Arrow to appreciate the content matter. I didn't know much about Green Arrow and I still enjoyed the stories.

Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern plus Green arrow team up and travel America to combat Racism, Corporate Corruption which is eerily reminiscent about the issues of today!

Up until now Green Lantern believed in right and wrong there was no gray area until now which effected his power ring, abilities, and falling out with the Guardians of the Universe.

A definite must read I read 350 pages today and plan to finish it soon because its hard to put down. With quotes from famous writers like Hemingway its certainly have something for all. Glad I pre-ordered this and why are you still reading this pick it up and see for yourself.

With the new Green Lantern movie coming out you can pick this up and understand a little about the character if your not already familiar with Green Lantern.

I know a lot of people say this is a must read for the social issues, but I found O'Neils writing to be very ham-fisted, even for the time. We can learn these lessons without being beat over the head with the message. Don't get me wrong the first half isn't all silly or downer material, there are some nice moments, but I did enjoy the first 4 volumes a lot more. Yes, we're back up to the 500 (or, so) page count, thankfully! That helped. I actually preferred the short tales in the second half of this volume (also written by O'Neil) that were culled from the pages of Flash! There we get back into the adventure side of comics and the debut of the Floronic Man as we know him today. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Here is a question you should ask yourself before reading, "Do I really want our main hero to constantly be made a fool by almost every character he meets and especially his "friend" Green Arrow?" For me the answer is no. I found GA to be really annoying in this book. On the bright side, Black Canary's appearances are refreshing. It seems between volumes, GL has become a joke to the masses and nobody, I mean nobody, has any respect for the guy. The villains don't even seem to fear him (and I'm talking street thugs and teenagers.) He's even down on himself half the time.

I was looking forward to the debut of John Stewart, but the Blacksploitaion-like feel ruined that story for me. I also found the Speedy story to be almost laughable for reasons I can't get into without spoiling the story. What saves this book for me, besides the short form stories, is the excellent artwork. Yes, Neal Adams is the standout - and the best artist to work on GL up to this point, but the others in this volume are no slouches either.

It may sound as if I don't recommend this book, but I do. I just want give others a word of note before reading. This is an excellent series and with the next volume I should start seeing the comics I had rolled up in my back pocket as a boy, yay! For more views on the stories in this volume, check out Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection - Volume 1 and Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection - Volume 2.

For people new to DC's Showcase Presents, or for that matter, Marvel's Essential line, these are in black and white. True, this may seem a disadvantage (especially to a hero who's super-power is the color green, LOL) but I feel for those who are actually drawn (no pun intended) to the artwork and not just bright colors are actually getting a better deal. In a sense you are closer to the artist in this format. Sometimes with color you lose detail and depth. Besides quicker volumes and lower cost, we have a much better probability of seeing an entire series printed. I'm still waiting for Golden Age Green Lantern Archives Volume 3.
