I hope this isn’t a hijack, but Hal Jordan was the first Green Lantern I knew. Until recently, I thought he was the original. And I can’t say I’ve read that many issues. I’ve read the Mosiac miniseries with Kyle in it. It was very surreal.
I just don’t think I have enough information to make an informed choice. If you were going to run the GLs head to head, which difinitive issues or story arcs would you have me read? If they’re available as paperbacks, I’ll buy them and then donate them to the library. If they’re only available as comics, maybe I’ll set them up as a display. They’ve displayed people’s rock collections; Green Lanterns through the years is at least more literary.
Also, do you think I should be reading the best stories or the most representative stories for each character? Feel free to just nominate your favorites and ignore the others. Thanks ahead of time. I’m not a true comic book nerd, but I would like to get a little closer.
