To commemorate Green Lantern’s 80th Anniversary, DC Comics is releasing a special 100-page collection of short, Green Lantern adventures from assorted writers and artists. What makes this collection particularly special is an adventure, penned by the late Denny O’Neil, that reunites Green Lantern with his emerald colleague Green Arrow, titled “Time Alone”.
The reunited Emerald Enforcers square off against the Clock King in a flashback to their road traveling days. The encounter leads to some introspection as each hero examines their approach to fighting crime and how they can do better.
