Well with the GREEN LANTERN movie on the horizon (which I really have no interest in seeing, I’ll try it when it comes on DVD) I thought a nifty post would be covering some of the character’s most iconic covers, from his almost six decades of publication history.
Particularly since I find the cover artwork more interesting than the stories. The Green Lantern character I find relatively uninteresting, exceptions being the later Wein/Englehart/Staton issues with John Stewart as Green Lantern and of course the O’Neil/Adams “Search for America” storyline. You can decide for yourself as I offer a link at the bottom of this article to compilations of the stories.
The stories aside, mostly one artist dominates the best Green Lantern covers, and that is the book’s definitive artist and co-creator, Gil Kane.
So without further ado the Best Green Lantern Covers:
Well there you go. The best Green Lantern covers!! Enjoy! And feel free to mention any you think I may have missed!
Oh, and here’s links to economical ways for you to read many of the stories to the covers shown (without mortgaging your house 🙂 ). Good Reading!
