Comic Investing! The Best Silver Age and Bronze Age List of Green Lantern Comics to Invest In!

And here we go! I'm expanding on my best list of Green Lantern comics to invest in, and I'm going to include some bronze age comics instead of just silver age. How about that? This is comic investing 101 with DC Comic's most famous emerald space cop.

Why am I advising Green Lantern books? Three words: Justice League Movie! Here's the list of Green Lantern investment comics to consider.

Green Lantern Vol 2

Issues #1-10
I highly suggest trying to get all early issues 1-10 from the second volume of Green Lantern. Some are still quite affordable in very good and mid grade copies, and quite a few are still easy to find. Exceptions are #1 and #7, which will take some hunting to find. 

Issue #5 - First Hector Hammond and origin of. Mycomicshop has a PGX graded 8.0 of this comic at the time of this writing. Visit the link to get a high grade first appearance of Hector Hammond.

Issue #7 is the 1st appearance of Sinestro and is an absolute must. Demand for this book because of news for the sequel is already strong enough that all grades of this issue are going above Overstreet Guide, even on EBAY! If you can't get it cheap on ebay that means demand is quite high. 
I believe the first appearance of Sinestro will only get worse in demand as more news of the sequel is leaked. Buy now and get it cheaper than later, or completely miss out on this investment comic. has this comic on consignment, and it's a CGC graded 6.5. Just visit the link to check out Green Lantern #7.
Issue #9  is the last 10 cent issue and 1st appearance of the Jordan brothers.

Issue #13
Can we say Flash cross over? 1st cross over issue for this G.L series, and it happens to be with the Scarlet Speedster. Classic Green Lantern issue to own. At the time of this writing NewKadia has a Green Lantern #13 at a low GD (good). Click the link to check it out and grab your copy before it's gone.

Issue #14 first appearance and origin of Sonar.

Issue #16 first appearance and origin of Silver Age Star Sapphire.

Issue #40
Do I even need to state why this is a good investment comic choice? Issue 40 is the origin of the famed Infinite Earths as well as the secret origin of the Guardians, as well as Hal Jordan meeting the first Green Lantern Alan Scott!

There will be a hunt for this issue, and it's a tad expensive in very good as well as mid grade copies, but this issue is well worth owning as a comic book investment. A 9.2 copy is already worth $1,150, and will no doubt continue to rise.

Mycomicshop has a bunch of copies of Green Lantern #40 for sale. One is on auction, one is consignment, four in there regular stock and one PGX 4.5 (very good) graded copy. Click the link to take a gander, and don't let this investment comic book slip by before it gets way too expensive!
Issue #59
The first appearance of everybody's favorite, hot head, G.L. member Guy Gardner. Right now, Guy's first appearance is quite affordable, but this won't last long. Guy Gardner has become an integral and popular character in the Green Lantern universe. It won't be long until his first appearance will take a big jump in value for sure.

Issue #76
There are so many reasons to pick up this bronze age beauty if you're serious about comic investing. Issue number 76 of the second Green Lantern series is the first issue with legendary comic artist Neal Adams. That's just one huge reason.

The second reason is that it's the first issue that begins the Green Lantern/Green Arrow series that was hugely popular at the time. It's one of the most regarded series run by Green Lantern comic fans. 

Issue #85 is the very first DC Comic out of the entire DCU that brings up the social issue of drugs. This is a milestone issue in which Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy is a heroin addict.

Issue #87 is the 2nd appearance of Guy Gardner and first appearance of John Stewart - the third Green Lantern! A must have key issue!

There it is! My expanded best list of Green Lantern comics to invest in. If you're looking to fill in gaps to your Green Lantern collection, be sure to visit both and NewKadia as they have quite a bit of common back issues from both the silver age and bronze age.
