I can't believe it either, especially as I am huge fan of 1960s Gil Kane Green Lantern.

Not that it particularly worries me - I have all the issues from this period (or archives of the very earliest ones) - so I won't be buying it anyway.

Let's face it, all the greatest Green Lantern stories ever told were from the 60s.

But we've already got the Archives and Showcase.
