A 304-page paperback titled “Green Lantern and Philosophy: No Evil Shall Escape This Book” hit store shelves last month, just in time to draft off all of the hoopla surrounding the huge Warner Bros. film that arrives in theaters next week. The book is part of the pop-culture and philosophy series edited by William Irwin that frames entertainment-world mythologies and brands (“Lost,” “Watchmen,” “South Park,” etc.) within a scholarly approach. To learn more about the green, glowing addition to the series, Hero Complex contributor Jevon Phillips chatted with the emerald-minded editors, Mark D. White, a professor in the Department of Political Science, Economics and Philosophy at the College of Staten Island, and Jane Dryden, assistant professor of philosophy at Mount Allison University.
