Still, there was an attempt to get him back into his own series, and two issues of the reprint title, DC Special, were used to see if there was interest in the Green Lantern (both of them containing reprints, but with new covers by Mike Grell!).
Let's take a look back at those issues, and see which tales helped Green Lantern get his title back!
DC Special 17
The next two issues of DC Special also each have a Green Lantern tale within them (like #19), as well as a Superman tale and more.
DC Special 20
This issue also has a feature on the three Jordan brothers (Hal and his two brothers, Jack and Jim, as well as Jim's wife, Sue), the other Green Lanterns of Earth (Golden Age Alan Scott, substitute #1 Guy Gardner and #2 John Stewart), as well as other oaths of Green Lanterns.
