22. Green Lantern

22. Green Lantern

So, to counter yesterday’s piece, here’s Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern. He’s a character I have a deep fondness for who has been presented as hetero for nearly 70-80 years. The character was outed last year during… something. I think it was an event book or something. Prior to this, an alternate Earth …

Red Bee vs. Two-Face

Red Bee vs. Two-Face

In 2016, most likely during an episode of The View Masters, I mentioned to Joe Grunenwald that I could draw Two-Face and any golden age superheroes all day and be content. Within days, I had a script. Within days of that, I had made some changes and drawn the 1st page! Then, nothing. I sat …

1181. War Eagle

Absolutely the most ridiculous Golden Age superhero I’ve ever seen or heard of. Look him up, it’s a doozy.

725. Stardust, The Super Wizard

725. Stardust, The Super Wizard

My local comic shop has a giant hardcover collection of Fletcher Hanks’ works that I keep eyeing. It’s incredibly tempting to buy & read and delve into not only the “making shit up as we go”-ness of his stories, but sheer and utter insanity – like, possibly legitimate, medical insanity.

591. The Flash

591. The Flash

Golden Age, Jay Garrick flavored. Flash Week zooms ahead.

373. Green Lantern

I want to redesign the Justice Society.

258. Mr. Terrific

258. Mr. Terrific

Terry Sloane, the original Mr. Terrific, had a Mr. Terrible costume. A very long time after his death, he was replaced by Michael Holt and got a pretty sweet updated outfit. Even the New 52 version of Holt’s costume was neat. Unfortunately, that’s all I had in mind while trying to come up with a …
