Issue Notes
1st Silver Age Green Lantern. Some sources credit Joe Giella with the cover inking, including including 80-Page Giant Green Lantern Annual (1998). The cover is signed with a K over G, which at this time meant that Gil Kane did the inking also. The Schwartz pay records also list solely Gil Kane on this cover. Art Spotters Bob Bailey, Michael Evans, David Bachman and Gene Reed all agree that it is Gil Kane inks. Schwartz pay records provided by DC Comics.

Get the most out of your chirps with these few tips:

  1. Use @username to mention a specific user.
  2. Use @GCIN (replace GCIN with the proper number) to mention an individual item.
  3. Use #subdomain to mention a specific collection. To find the subdomain of a collection, simply look up in your browser's address bar. The subdomain is the letters that follow the 'http://', but come before the '.gocollect.com'. For example, the subdomain for comics.gocollect.com would just be comics (used as #comics).
  4. Use a hashtag (#) directly in front of a word to make it a search link.
