Notes

Earth's First Green Lantern. Recap of how Hal Jordan got his power ring. Some sources have credited the inking incorrectly to Joe Giella. Murphy Anderson inks confirmed by Bob Bailey, Bob Hughes and David Bachman. Murphy Anderson also listed in the Schwartz's pay records supplied by DC Comics.
