    The art is gorgeous, but Len Wein was suffering some extreme writers block at the time, so the writing is the weakest aspect of the compared to what Gibbons was doing. It's well worth reading though. Once Englehart and Staton come aboard, that's when things got really crazy.

    It's interesting that Geoff Johns forgot about Cowgirl in his "mainstream" GL run, but Grant Morrison remembered her in their "experimental" GL run.

    Bringing back Cowgirl let Morrrison flex their “forgotten continuity/plot points” nerd muscles.

    Hal never spending time on earth was probably a factor in that.

    Admittedly Morrison was trying to fit in as many old girlfriends as they could...

    There was that one splash page with each girlfriend getting associated with one of the Lantern lights. Maybe Morrison thought about that page first and then well, you have to find at least 7 girlfriends then.

    Who is Joan anyway. I knew about Dorine and Eve and I'm vaguely familiar with Kari and Olivia but at least I knew about them too. I don't think I've ever heard of Joan before.

    Joan Colby was a "one issue stand" with Hal one of times he was on the rebound from Carol. She appeared in just one issue, GL vol. 2 #50.

    Thanks for the reponses! Sadly, I can only get volume 1 nowadays here in my country, but I love what I've seen from Dave Gibbons in that volume, and, while I entered the GL franchise with Geoff Johns' writing, I think the ring's power isn't as fun as it used to be from the old stories I've read, and that's why I was looking for some Pre-COIE stories. So bad that Len Wein was going through a writer's block, but it just shows that it can happen even to the best. I will see to purchase the volume this month or the following!
