The GREEN LANTERN CORPS TOUR OF DUTY

To say that doing this issue was a cakewalk would be the lie of the century considering the time allotted to complete it. With Hurricane Sandy, that hybrid storm had pretty much shut everyone down. I was coming home from a much needed vacation and the lights and power had just come on as I literally walked in the door of my apartment.
Poor Peter Tomasi hadn’t had any power until a couple of days later.
And time was dwindling in which to make the deadline that was set to get this annual out.
But when the script started to file in, it was all about getting the talented Scott Hanna and Marlo Alquiza to get the inking done… And they did great work considering the time we had to get it done. I’m pretty sure that Wil Moss, the editor, has had an excuse to use Just For Men after that process. Me, I just shaved my head bald. :)Peter Tomasi, I feel, is doing something with GLC that separates this book from the other Green Lantern books. It’s oviphagy translate as space opera. It’s cinematic and prolific. It’s a movie in every book. And it shows in the current work that artist Fernando Basarin accomplishes in every page.
So I had to step up my game a bit. But there’s only so much one can do when time is limited. (Mind you,this is me never being satisfied. 🙂 )
With the inkers doing their thing, the glue that made this book really pull was Wil Quintana. His pastel hued palette reminds me of watching the really cool anime of the past. Like watching Mighty Orbots. And it would work like gangbusters over the work I was producing on this book.
I’m still apologizing to him for the extra double-splash page I did on top of the myriad of other double-splashes in this book. He had to color both and then sandwich them together.
There were a ton of double-splash sequences in this book that I’m about to post with this entry and I just thought it would be great for you guys to look at the work unencumbered by lettering, so you can get the idea of the breadth of work that went into getting the book done.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did doing it. Even if Peter Tomasi is a madman. And Fernando. 🙂
