Vol 1: June, 1986 – May, 1988
Green Lantern Corps (Volume 1) is a 24 issue ongoing title published by DC Comics from 1986 to 1988. It followed the publication of Green Lantern (Volume 2) #200 and continued the numbering from that volume. All but the final issue were written by Steve Englehart, with the conclusion written by Joey Cavalieri. Contributing pencilers included Joe Staton, Bill Willingham, and Gil Kane.
Corresponding to the change in name, the narrative focus of the book expanded from the then-Green Lantern of Earth (typically Hal Jordan, although both John Stewart and Guy Gardner had featured prominently at various times) to the entirety of the Green Lantern Corps.
Cancelled following a two year run with issue #224, several cast members (most notably Hal Jordan) moved over to Action Comics Weekly (Volume 1). Following the reversion of that title to a monthly, Superman book, two Green Lantern specials were published in 1988 and 1989. The next ongoing Green Lantern title would begin publication in 1990, as Green Lantern (Volume 3). The idea of a title focusing on the entire Green Lantern Corps would be revived in 1992 with the anthology Green Lantern Corps Quarterly (Volume 1). Following Green Lantern: Rebirth, Green Lantern Corps (Volume 2) would begin publication in 2006.
Vol 2: August, 2006 – October, 2011
Green Lantern Corps (Volume 2) was a title that began publication in August 2006. It focused on the adventures of the newly reformed Green Lantern Corps, particularly its members Guy Gardner, Soranik Natu, Isamot Kol, and Vath Sarn. After the Sinestro Corps War was added the members Kyle Rayner, Arisia Rrab, Sodam Yat, and after the Blackest Night, the Green Lantern Corps, featured Kyle Rayner, Soranik Natu, John Stewart and Ganthet.
