Default Green Lantern Holiday Gift Guide 2011

Green Lantern Holiday Gift Guide





It's that special time of the year where U.S. citizens fill their stomach with turkey and assorted foods. Then rush off into the night to snag the latest merchandise that will benefit them and others during the cold winter season. So I have graciously provided a list of casual items for the Green Lantern fan in your life, or more likely, just for you. Without further delay, here is your Green Lantern Holiday Gift Guide for 2011.



COMICS



Chances are very unlikely that you are new to Green Lantern. Chances are very likely that you have everything listed below. But in case you don't, allow me to tempt you into getting into Green Lantern comics.


Start your GL collection with DC Comics greatest packaging collection!
Quote:
In 2004, writer Geoff Johns and artist Ethan Van Sciver - the team behind the current blockbuster THE FLASH: REBIRTH - restored Hal Jordan to his place as the greatest Green Lantern of all with the best-selling miniseries GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH! Now, DC Comics is pleased to present this perennial favorite in the slipcased, Absolute format. Follow Hal Jordan on his journey from fearless test pilot to Super Hero, from villain to the spirit of vengeance, and finally, returning to his true calling as Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814. This amazing Absolute edition includes GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH #1-6, GREEN LANTERN #1, the preview story from Wizard Magazine and a tale from GREEN LANTERN SECRET FILES 2005 featuring spectacular artwork by Darwyn Cooke.

Maybe Hal Jordan isn't your favorite lantern. We've got just the thing!

Collecting the first six issues of the new series re-establishing the legendary Green Lantern Corps!
