ORIGINAL ART GALLERY GIL KANE
For decades, Green Lantern stood in the shadow of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. But times passes, and now GL is a big-shot movie star (with a non-record breaking opening weekend box office) whose book far outsells Superman, so from now on, GL really MUST be considered as being in the top tier of the ranks of DC superhero-dom. The "Big Three" -- Supes, Bats and WW -- are now the big FOUR. At last!
I know I said all that last issue. but I felt like saying it again! Now, here's a selection of original artwork by the man who MADE Green Lantern in the Silver Age ... Gil Kane!
