Yeah, but it makes him look like Kyle when the costume looks more like Hal. The ambiguous hair color under the green light doesn't help.

I had Thursday as the actual anniversary (even wrote it on my calendar). Comic Vine says All American #16 (which was cover dated for July) hit stores on May 21, 1940. Maybe they count a printing day or something, but I've never heard of it.

It's the day I celebrated 5 years ago and it's the day I'll celebrate this week because I want to re-read this ish and watch some GL stuff and not believe I missed it.

On June 23, join DC in celebrating eight decades of intergalactic justice and peacekeeping with the Green Lantern 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1. You’ve already seen the incredible decade variant covers depicting the Green Lantern Corps across 80 years, but here’s your first look at some of the awesome stories that make up this must-have collectors’ item:



Quote:
“Last Will,” by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis

The team that brought you Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night reunites to deliver one more story featuring the Emerald Warrior. Hal Jordan crashes onto an unknown planet with only enough power in his ring to send three messages out.


Quote:
“Legacy,” by Ron Marz and Darryl Banks

The co-creators of Kyle Rayner return to tell another adventure with the Torchbearer. Kyle travels to New York to grab a few things from the old Warriors location in storage, but he finds that not everything Guy Gardner displayed in his bar was totally safe.


Quote:
“Four,” by Robert Venditti and Rafa Sandoval

The team that brought you Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps power up again for one more tale with the 4 Corpsmen. Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Kyle Rayner reunite to reminisce and tell old war stories, but where’s Guy Gardner?


Quote:
“Reverse The Polarity,” by Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie and ChrisCross

In a story that should pluck the heartstrings of any Justice League Unlimited fan, Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie and ChrisCross team up for an adventure featuring John Stewart and Hawkgirl. In this sweet tribute to the late Dwayne McDuffie. John and Kendra are trapped in the Watchtower by Dr. Polaris after her takes control of a mysterious element that enhances his powers.

The book also features Green Lantern tales from other celebrated talents, including Peter J. Tomasi/Fernando Pasarin, Denny O’Neil/Mike Grell, Sina Grace/Ramon Villalobos, Mariko Tamaki/Mirka Andolfo and Cullen Bunn/Doug Mahnke. A renowned collection of artists has also contributed tribute art recognizing the legacy of the Green Lantern Corps, including Far Sector artist Jamal Campbell, Green Lantern: Legacy artist Andie Tong, Catwoman artist Joelle Jones with Jordie Bellaire, Batman: Dark Knight: The Golden Child artist Rafael Grampa, and others.

I'll be passing on this since it seems like Guy won't be involved at all.

It's a GL book with new tales, so it's a sure sale for me, but some of this just justifies the money.

Why should I? Every other character gets their own story. Even Cruz and Baz.

I don't mind Kilowog's presence that much. It makes sense that they gave Guy to Tomasi (the alternative would have been yet another riff on JLI, and that would have felt out of place in a book like this), and Kilowog was a huge part of the Tomasi run.
