Action Comics Weekly #642
"Where There is a Will..Chapter II - The Decline"
Deciding to fight the bad guys instead of dealing with his personal problems, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) investigates reports of someone stealing fissionable nuclear material. For some reason, his ring is acting erratically. After Green Lantern breaks into a military compound, he is fatally shot by the Major and left for dead. He then sends out green energy - to find a successor.
Written by awesome Elliot S. (Superman) Maggin with art by Steve (Stalker, Creeper) Ditko (pages 5-12) & terrific Art Thibert inks.
By the way, famed Green Lantern artist Gil Kane illustrates the first chapter. Although not shown, Boston Brand (Deadman) is also considered for the role of Green Lantern in this chapter as well!
