Green Lantern began publication in August of 1960. The series spotlighted the Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan and introduced the expansive mythology surrounding Hal’s forbearers in the Green Lantern Corps. In April of 1970, Hal began sharing the spotlight with his close friend, Green Arrow, and the title officially changed to Green Lantern & Green Arrow with issue #76. This format continued despite an irregular publishing schedule for several years, but by issue #123, Hal Jordan resumed the title spotlight and Green Arrow moved on as a backup feature in Detective Comics. Following the double-sized 200th issue, the format changed again, this time altering its title to the Green Lantern Corps. It remained as such until its cancellation in 1988 with issue #224.
