This Tale of the Green Lantern Corps was pencilled by Carmine Infantino, inked by Frank Chiaramonte, lettered by Adam Kubert, colored by Anthony Tollin, and blue-pencilled by Dave Manak.… Read the rest

Part 1 of a 2-part Tales of the Green Lantern Corps back-up story from Green Lantern #152 (May 1982), another pencil and ink job by irascible Carmine Infantino. “Paradise World” was lettered by the cantankerous Milt Snappin, colored by the avuncular Anthony Tollin, and edited by the durable Dave Manak.… Read the rest

I love Carmine Infantino.

Well, I love his art, anyway. To be honest, in person, he could be kind of crotchety and snarly. But as a young, early-1960s comic book reader, Carmine was the first artist whose style I came to recognize and could instantly identify from his work on Flash and Adam Strange.… Read the rest

Who was Earth’s first Green Lantern? I think there have probably been about half a dozen stories about characters claiming that honor. Here’s mine, a (Pre-Crisis) tale of the Old West from Green Lantern #149 (February 1982), with art by the great Don Newton, inked by his (to my mind) best inker (other than Don himself), Dan Adkins.… Read the rest

From my files:

The header on this typewritten script for a six-page Green Lantern mini-comic is “General Foods Canadian Comics.” I’m guessing it was a custom comic, probably one of a series from the late-1970s, probably a pack-in for some Canadian General Foods product–but I don’t recall the project, nor do I have a copy of the finished mini-comic in my files.… Read the rest

Christopher J. Priest (the artist formerly known as Jim Owsley) is one of my favorite people and favorite writers, a friend since the late-1970s when I was a writing for Marvel’s Crazy Magazine and he was the assistant editor thereof. We worked together on staff at DC Comics for a couple of years, and we wrote for one another’s editorial offices.… Read the rest

The character of Ch’p, the Green Lantern from the planet H’lven, first appeared in an untitled Tales of the Green Lantern Corps back-up story in Green Lantern #148 (January 1982). Ch’p wasn’t supposed to be a joke, contrary to the eventual fate of the character at the hands of the clueless.… Read the rest

The first words Carmine Infantino ever spoke to me, one day in 1971, were, “Belay the ‘mister,’ lieutenant! Call me…Carmine!”

The circumstances were these: I was sixteen years old and, with Paul Levitz, friend and co-editor of Etcetera, the monthly fanzine we were then producing, I was visiting the offices of DC Comics at 909 Third Avenue.… Read the rest

From sometime before the age of computers (I got my first one, an Apple IIc, circa 1986), a script for a 6-page mini-comic that I apparently wrote, starring Green Lantern. The header reads “GENERAL FOODS Canadian Comics”…one of a series of comics packed in with Canadian Wheaties, eh?… Read the rest

Pal and “Eyes of the Beholders!” penciller Rick Stasi sent me this scan, pulled from eBay, of a page (page 7 to be precise) from our (probably) never-published story, the script for which can be found in the previous three postings.… Read the rest
