Green Lantern #60

Green Lantern #60 (On Sale: February 27, 1968) features an interesting cover by Gil Kane and Murphy Anderson.

"Spotlight on the Lamp-Lighter" is by Gardner Fox, Gil Kane and Sid Greene. Scientist Lee Carver is the victim of a lab accident which takes his eyesight. Carver discovers a type of Ultra-Light which enables him to see again. This enables him to complete his work on a transmutation machine which can alter the structure of objects for about 40 minutes.

Deciding to make the world suffer for the loss of his eyesight, Carver becomes the Lamplighter and uses his new invention for crime. Hal Jordan investigates the first robbery and becomes involved as Green Lantern. Although the villain escapes their first encounter, GL is able to track down the Lamplighter a second time.
