The release of the Greatest Flash Stories Ever Told reminded me that DC did a pretty disappointing job on last year’s release of the Greatest Green Lantern Stories Ever Told, as they actually changed the solicits to make it basically a “Greatest Hal Jordan Stories Ever Told” trade, which was a bit disappointing.
The original solicit was stories from the following:
Green Lantern (’40s) #1; All-American Comics #89; Green Lantern (’60s-70s) #1, 9, 87, 172; Superman #257, Tales of the Green Lantern Corps Annual #3, Green Lantern (’90s) #3, 0; Green Lantern: Mosaic #5; Green Lantern Gallery and Green Lantern Secret Files 2005.
The ACTUAL trade contained stories from the following:
Showcase (60s) #22; Green Lantern (60s,70s, 80s) #1, 31, 74, 87, 172; Green Lantern (90s) #3; Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold (1999) #2 , DC First: Green Lantern/Green Lantern (2002), and Green Lantern Secret Files 2005
The nifty Elliot S! Maggin Superman story and the Alan Moore story from the Annual are the biggest losses, but overall, the actual trade seems a bit disappointing.
So what stories would YOU put into a Greatest Green Lantern Stories Ever Told trade, if you were given about 200 pages to choose stories for it?
