DESCRIPTION
1st app. Hector Hammond (4-4/61)
This issue introduces the recurring nemesis of the Green Lantern, Hector Hammond, in "The Power Ring that Vanished!" which spins a complicated tale involving Carol Ferris, Pieface in Lantern disguise, hyper-evolved scientists, two Lantern rings and, eventually, a mysterious science tome. Wrapped in another of a long line of fantastic Gil Kane covers, this is a prime example of Silver Age Emerald Crusader action.


Artists Information

Joe Giella is an American comic book artist best known as a DC Comics inker during the late 1950s and 1960s Silver Age of comic books. Giella's career began in the 40's at Hillman and later working with C.C. Beck on Captain Marvel stories at Fawcett. He would also assist on Captain America, Human Torch, Sub-Mariner and other stories at Timely. It was the Silver Age where he would come to his most prominence, working at DC on many of their biggest titles, including Batman, Green Lantern and Strange Adventures, working often with artist Carmine Infantino.

Gil Kane was a Latvian-born American comics artist whose career spanned the 1940s to the 1990s and virtually every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as that of The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98, which, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name Is... Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.
