My ex-boyfriend told me once he slept with this book. Which may be too much information, but you ought to know from that, if you are a comics fan, just how good it is. I am not a comics fan, but I felt by perusing the copy in question that I could be, if given enough time, and this book would serve as a great introduction. ( )

"By this instrument of my own devising I shall probe the beginning of all things! Nothing shall be hidden from me!"
Krona, Green Lantern #40 (October 1965)
First words
Looked at one way, Chronos, the ancient Greek god of time, was the beginning of Western civilization's preoccupation with the measurement of years, decades, and the passage of our days that has been our obsession ever since.
