Decent Comics: "War Against the World-Builders!" by O'Neil, Grell, and Austin

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! A highly underrated era of Green Lantern was when the mag was revived in 1976 under the guidance of Denny O'Neil and Mike Grell. The stories were more sci-fi and super-heroic than O'Neil's legendary earlier work with Neal Adams, but there are still messages and tons of fun to be had! "War Against the World-Builders!" from Green Lantern #93 (November 1976) should prove Ol' Groove's point! Oh, and if you've not been sufficiently grabbed, how 'bout this: Terry Austin inks Grell's pencils and man, do they make a far-out combo! Happy Thanksgiving in June, Groove-ophiles!

  1. Although politically the opposite of what O'Neil and Adams were chronicling in the all new, all now GL/GA I was still disappointed when the title was revived and reverted to a more traditional sci-fi focus. This issue is really good. Grell was cutting loose with his graphics, aided immensely by the prince of the pen points, Terry Austin (I sure miss his presence in comics today).

  2. Thanks for this! I've been waiting so long for one of my favorite DC heroes toe shown. I wasn't going to say anything, Don't get me wrong I like Aquaman but I can only handle so many scenes of waving sea weed. I like GL so much more.

  3. This was my very first Green Lantern comic. Bought off a spinner rack at the local liquor store. Thanks Groove.
