  1. Very nicely organized. Once small caveat...where's the Green Lantern label?

  2. @Sally: When I find an accessible Green Lantern book it will be added! I believe James has one in mind, but do you have any any recommendations in the meanwhile? Not Rebirth - that confused me and I know about DC history!

  3. Uh...I like them ALL! I do have to recommend Guy Gardner: Reborn because it was hilarious and not too hard to get into.

    Some of those old GLC: Quarterly books were fun too.
