Default Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 Announced


Quote:
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power, Green Lantern's light.”

Since the first Green Lantern was introduced in All-American Comics #16 in May 1940 by artist Martin Nodell and writer Bill Finger, the Green Lanterns have been fan-favorite characters with millions of comic book fans. From that first ring-wielding Lantern to the latest, and every strong-willed Super Hero in-between, many have spoken the Green Lantern oath and pledged to defend their home sector from evils of every nature. Now, in 2020, this corps of extraterrestrial space police built up from all alien races and places are celebrating 80 years of keeping the DC universe safe!

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, DC will be publishing Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 on May 20, 2020. Join us to see tales of all of the universe’s most legendary Green Lanterns: Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, plus appearances from other cosmic favorites!

In addition to a dynamic cover by Liam Sharp, fans and collectors can also look forward to eight variant covers spotlighting Lanterns throughout the decades, drawn by some of comics’ premier artists:
  • 1940’s variant cover by Nicola Scott
  • 1950’s variant cover by Matt Taylor
  • 1960’s variant cover by Doug Mahnke
  • 1970’s variant cover by Neal Adams
  • 1980’s variant cover by David Finch
  • 1990’s variant cover by Philip Tan
  • 2000’s variant cover by Ivan Reis and Oclair Albert
  • 2010’s variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams
The legendary lineup of creators contributing their talents to Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular include Geoff Johns, Darryl Banks, Charlotte Fullerton McDuffie, Sina Grace, Mike Grell, Jeff Lemire, Ron Marz, Denny O’Neil, Fernando Pasarin, Ivan Reis, Rafa Sandoval, Mariko Tamaki, Peter J. Tomasi, James Tynion IV, Robert Venditti, and more—all with the goal to keep the galaxy glowing bright!

Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 is a prestige format comic book retailing for $9.99 and available at local comic retailers and digital retailers on May 20, 2020. Please consult your local comic book store for more information regarding the decade variant covers.

I want all of the variant covers. Yes, all of them. And I'd love to have this image as a print or poster. I wish Kilowog was in this pic, but it's otherwise perfect. If that's not a legacy of which to be proud, I don't know what is!

Reminds me of the "DC Retroactive: The 80s, The 90s," etc. specials. Which they did as a goodbye to everything before right as they slid into "Flashpoint."

Twitter is blowing up over this. This year reminds me of 10 years ago when the movie was in production, we got word that there was going to be an animated series, and the internet hype was palpable.

It's our time again!

That would be nice, although I imagine that depends on what we have in store in terms of long-term plans. I imagine it will continue to be a challenge for DC to figure out what to do with all umpteen lanterns we have running around these days.

I dunno... like I said, kind of seems like a goodbye rather than a going forward thing. Just like last time.

I mean it's neither, it's DC looking at the success of Detective Comics #1000 and Action Comics #1000 and trying to recreate those sales numbers for other characters.

That art is gorgeous. Why does Alan have no shirt on when he first encounterers the lantern? He was on a train and wearing a white button up shirt IIRC

For a planned release date of May 20, they're still in the pencil stage? I mean, sure, they won't be able to ship this in May, but they couldn't have foreseen that when they scheduled the deadlines?

This looks like it'll be the best Anniversary issue of all these DC releases.
