    This was great. DC got most of its long running Green Lantern creative teams of the past to come back and do stories for the 80th anniversary. Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis give us a new Hal Jordan story. In Denny O'Neill's last story before his death, he returns with Mike Grell filling in on art for a a hard traveling heroes story of Green Lantern / Green Arrow. Ron Marz and Darryl Banks return from the Kyle Rayner era. Peter Tomasi and Fernando Pasarin write up a GL Corps story. Cullen Bunn and Do This was great.

There's so much Green Lantern goodness here.

    Surprisingly solid anthology dedicated to a corner of the DC universe I usually have the hardest time trying to care about. James Tynion’s Alan Scott story illustrated by Gary Frank was my favorite of the bunch, but pretty much all the shorts here have at least some elements that I dug, and the included pinups were all absolutely gorgeous. Definitely one of the better anniversary issues DC published in recent memory.

    This was actually pretty great. Similar to Batman and Superman 80th anniversary we get different stories of Green Lantern. Best part is we get multiple green lanterns to talk about. DC wisely brings back huge writers who have written Green Lantern before like Johns, Ron Marz, Tomasi, and more. The stories all range from decent to fantastic. The highlights for me being the very first story about Alan Scott. Didn't know I'd be so touch by the themes and storyline presented here. I also really enjo This was actually pretty great.

The one about the 4 main green lanterns was great too. I also enjoyed Jessica Story alot. Simon's was a little on the nose, and I was a tad Disappointed in Kyle's because I feel Marz could do better. Overall though this was a great tribute to the name Green Lantern and plenty to love here. A 4.5 out of 5.

    Its a great day of new comics and could not wait to read a review the Green Lantern 8oth Anniversary issue. I really hate that DC comics keeps milking the whole $9.99 anthology book thing. They have been doing this since the Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000 were big sellers. They got me with this one. I am such a huge Green Lantern fan.

They got me with this one. I am such a huge Green Lantern fan. I have been on the series since Geoff Johns run and continued to read the series even now with Grant Morrison on the book. I still think Johns clearly had the best run but I still really loved Robert Venditti, Peter Tomasi, & Sam Humphries work with the Green Lantern mythos. I am just a big fan of Space opera and cosmic storytelling. I hope to publish and write my own space opera someday. It can not be said enough how the Green Lantern mythos has influence me. Now, As far as this anthology goes all the stories were good. But there at least four here that are truly amazing and really capture the feel of the Green Lantern mythos. I would be ashamed of myself if I do not start by giving my condolences to the family of Denny O'Neil. He truly was greatest writer in the biz. If fact his story in this anthology was one of my favorites. I have read some of his work on Batman and little of his Green Lantern/Green Arrow stuff. His story was filled with humanity and really make Green Arrow & Green Lantern feel like real people. Next I have to say it is a tied between Venditti & Tomasi's stories. Both stories express how the Lantern Corp are not just a team of Superheroes but that they are a family. Cullen Bunn's Sinestro tale was exquisitely delightful. He showcases why Sinestro is one of thee greatest supervillains in DC comics period.I have always loved the take Johns did with the character. Sinestro is truly a villain that believes he is the hero. Without a doubt Geoff's story was one of if not the best. Hal Jordan will always be my favorite Green Lantern. Then I would say its John Stewart, Kyle, and Jessie/Baz. I see Jessica & Baz working as a duo. All in all this was a great collection of tales. The artwork was good on most of the stories as well. Geoff and Ivan are always great together. Definitely worth the buy for any Green Lantern fan.

    As with any collection involving various writers, this is a mixed bag of stories. If you are a Green Lantern fan, though, it's definitely worth a look.

    Nice historical cross-section of all ring wearers in the Green Lantern legacy written and drawn ( mainly ) by those who have left their stamp on those heroes. We even get a neat Green Lantern/Green Arrow story written by the late Denny O'Neil with some nifty art by Mike Grell. I chose the 70's Neal Adams cover for the issue I bought. I especially liked the back pages with spotlights on the main ring wearers featured with their first appearance as well.

    Green Lantern 80th Anniversary Special (2020) This is my very first foray into GL apart from the Batman GL hybrid in Dark Knights Metal. I really didn't know anything about the character. In "Dark Things Cannot Stand the Light" Alan Scott receives the power of the ring. In "Last Will" written by Geoff Johns finds GL in an embarrassing situation. 🤣🤣🤣 In "The Meaning of Fear" Sinestro of Korugar faces 1961 GL and explains to him the meaning of fear. In "Time Alone" Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern teach Green Lantern 80th Anniversary Special (2020) This is my very first foray into GL apart from the Batman GL hybrid in Dark Knights Metal.

In "Time Alone" Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern teaches Green Arrow a way to step back and center himself. In "Legacy" GL contemplates being solo versus being a team of Laterns. In "Heart of the Corps" Guy Gardner plans a surprise birthday party for Kilowog. Can't say as i love Guy Gardner. In "Reverse the Polarity" GL learns he may be a bit too overconfident. In "Four" the Four Corpsman reflect at a reunion on all their fights with Sinestro. This one got me. 😢 I take back what i said previously about Guy Gardner. In "The Voice" Jessica seems to be an anxiety ridden lantern. In "Homegrown Hero" Simon shows a terrorist the consequences of racism. Overall this is a very good book.

    Green Lantern 80th Anniversary #1 is a collection of 10 Green Lantern tales that spans the characters 80 years in comics. There are stories about Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kilowog, Sinestro, Kyle Rayner, Jessica Cruz, and Simon Baz. I haven't read a Green Lantern book since Blackest Night so this was a fun journey down memory lane. I have never been huge into the Green Lantern books but I have enjoyed what I have read. My favorite Lanterns would be Alan Scott and Guy Gard Green Lantern 80th Anniversary #1 is a collection of 10 Green Lantern tales that spans the characters 80 years in comics.

That was such a fun and beautiful book. I also really don't know much about Cruz or Baz other than what I read in a few Justice League titles. I may have to search out some Green Lantern books to read since aibenjoyed this so much.

    This is a great anthology that I would definitely recommend for those who enjoy Green Lantern. My favourite stories were ‘Four’ by writer Writer Robert Vendetti and artist Rafa Sandoval, where the Green Lanterns reminisce about their battles in a reunion and ‘The Meaning of Fear’ by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Doug Mahnke shows why Sinestro is a great villain and I enjoyed the twist behind the Green Lantern ring.

    The Tynion, Vendetti, Bunn and Tomasi stories where the best. It's sorely missing a Morrison/Sharp story, but I get their series is super time consuming as it is. The Denny O'Neil story was bittersweet to read, given it's possibly the last thing he ever wrote and there's a reflective nature to it. Given Johns contributions to the mythos, his story essentially being a dad joke was super disappointing.

    As I've mentioned in my Podcast, I was a major fan of this anniversary issue! I would put this on top of my list, tied with Action Comics #1000 for best Anniversary issue since 2018. There were some stories I disliked, but I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of them! Between the writing and the art, I will say my top three favorite would have to be the Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, and Four.

    Out of all the anniversary comics so far this is the only one that has even come close to living up to what I expected it to be. It's the perfect mix of heartwarming hilarity, adventure, comedy and hard-hitting moments that you've come to expect from the Lanterns. It's very much a team affair with no one stealing the show just because they've been around the longest. Definetely a must a read.
