A dying alien. A fearless test pilot. A ring of nearly limitless power. And a solemn vow to battle evil wherever it may be found. So begins one of comics' greatest sagas, and one of the medium's most enduring heroes-the story of Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern of Sector 2814! In these stories from SHOWCASE #22-24 and GREEN LANTERN #1-35, Green Lantern first meets the Guardians of the Universe and faces foes including Sinestro, the Weaponers of Qward, Sonar, Star Sapphire and many more!
It was the world's greatest comic magazine - again! Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had a creator so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel's First Family. Fresh off an earth-shattering and reputation-making run as penciler on UNCANNY X-MEN, John Byrne proved his writing talent was every bit the equal of his art as he pulled double duty on FANTASTIC FOUR, launching Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny into realms of imagination and wonder into which few creators before had dared to travel. From the four corners of the globe to the farthest reaches of space to the deepest depths of the Negative Zone, the FF face off against foes old and new - including the Dr. Doom, Galactus and Annihilus! Plus: The FF aid the Inhumans, bid farewell to the Baxter Building, don new costumes and celebrate their 20th anniversary in style as Byrne reminds us all there's a family at the heart of this team of adventurers!

Joe Quesada helped create the critically acclaimed Marvel Knights imprint - and these are the stories that defined it!

In the highly personal DAREDEVIL: FATHER, Quesada took the reins as writer and illustrator. With New York suffering a deadly heat wave, a serial killer pushes a city at the boiling point over the edge - and only Daredevil can hold Hell's Kitchen together!
