DC Day: This Month, in the History of the DC Universe, Green Lantern Hits a Milestone With the 100th Double-Sized Issue

 

DC DAY

IGN

IN FRANCHISES, COMIC VALUES AND COLLECTIONS

In 1986, DC Comics published History of the DC Universe. Importantly, the comic changed continuity and introduced a single, unified DC Universe with a shared history. In addition, the DC multiverse was erased from continuity with the five remaining Earths after Crisis On Infinite Earths merging into New Earth. In the Pre-Crisis universe, DC Comics introduced Hal Jordan as opposed to Alan Scott.

This January, the Green Lantern series hit a 100th-issue milestone with a double-sized comic featuring Hal Jordan published in 1978. Today, we celebrate Green Lantern.

GREEN LANTERN REACHES A MILESTONE

In Green Lantern (1978) #100, Green Lantern hits a milestone issue. In a double-sized comic by Dennis O’Neil and Alex Saviuk, Green Lantern has to stop a foreign terrorist named Master Tek. Moreover, the comic is set in the Pre-Crisis continuity on Earth-One. Also, the comic features the first appearance of Air Wave, Hal’s cousin. Importantly, the hero is one of the few characters that also share the name Hal Jordan like Green Lantern.

IN THE SECOND STORY, OLIVER QUEEN AGREES TO RUN FOR MAYOR

In “Beware the Blazing Inferno,” the second story, Oliver Queen agrees to run for mayor. In the issue, Green Arrow, Black Canary and Speedy (Roy Harper) stop the Blazing Infernos street gang in the latest Star City bombings. After, Mayor Jack Mayor deduces that Oliver Queen is Green Arrow and convinces him to run for mayor.

3. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE (2020-) #3 (DC)

SYNOPSIS

1983. Japan. Tatsu Yamashiro’s life has been taken from her. Her home, her children, her husband are all gone. With nothing left but a burning pain and the sword that stole her family from her, Tatsu begins a long journey of healing, self-discovery, agency, and rebirth. This is the story of Tatsu Yamashiro, the woman known to many as Katana-a hero who became more than the world ever intended for her, ultimately making a family of like-minded Outsiders who rally together for the common good amidst xenophobia and oppression.
The long-awaited miniseries written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) and beautifully illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi continues to look at the mythology of the DC Universe as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.

5. SABRETOOTH (2022) #3 (OF 5)(MARVEL)

SYNOPSIS

THE GREAT ESCAPE! Sabretooth and the other exiled mutants have stopped fighting each other long enough to start working together. They might not like one another, but they all want out of the Pit.

6. IRON MAN (2020-) #4 (MARVEL)

SYNOPSIS

KORVAC is on the loose and Tony Stark is on the hook for it. Iron Man and Hellcat were lucky to survive their first encounter with Korvac and his new disciples, but finding him and stopping him is proving an even greater challenge. Tony is reticent to let other hero allies in on the fact that he opened up a giant can of worms all on his own, but it might be a moot point given that Korvac has placed Tony under a very clever and threatening gag order. As Korvac powers down all of New York City in order to try and again go cosmic, Tony’s forced to turn to lesser-known colleagues on the fringe in order to stop him. One advantage he has: Hellcat is hearing things ever since their last encounter with Korvac… Strange things… Things that might overtake her entirely.



7. THE FLASH (2016-) #2 (DC)

And in the Punchline backup story, Punchline has to face off against the Queen of Spades’ new muscle…Orca! At the same time, Bluebird’s investigation at Punchline’s alma mater takes a dark and horrifying turn!
