Green Lantern Creator Dies

Martin Nodell, creator of one of the most enduring American comic book heroes, Green Lantern, has died at the age of 91. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Nodell about 15 years ago at the Dallas Fantasy Fair, and he was good enough to sign an autograph for me. The character has evolved significantly since Nodell first drew him, and in the pages of DC Comics many characters have worn the emerald power ring. The guy you see pictured here is a modern interpretation of Nodell's original Green Lantern, Alan Scott by artist Alex Ross (I think). You can read the AP obituary here.
