A Year of Cool Comics – Day 330

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

In honor of the latest Comic Book Legends Revealed, we’re taking a look at Neil Gaiman’s Green Lantern/Superman: The Legend of the Green Flame one-shot.

Enjoy!

As I noted in the Comic Book Legends Revealed, this story was originally going to serve as the finale of the Action Comics Weekly experiment, so it would star the various characters who were appearing in the anthology.

It opens with an Eddie Campbell illustrated depiction of the Blackhawks following World War II…


Then we come up to the present day, as Hal Jordan goes to get help from his friend, Clark Kent (art by Mike Allred and Terry Austin)…



Mark Buckingham takes over, as we see what the deal is…



They are now on a mystical journey. Art here is by John Totleben…



Matt Wagner has the first interlude starring Phantom Stranger…


The heroes find themselves in hell, illustrated by Eric Shanower and Art Adams (interesting combo)…



The late, great Jim Aparo gets the next Phantom Stranger interlude…


Then Kevin Nowlan takes us to the climax…


And Jason Little draws the epilogue…


What an amazing journey Gaiman took Green Lantern and Superman on! You really need to go pick up this comic. Look at all the purty artwork and the great looking tale!
