Bugün çok Jason, çok Molina.
Ve her sözünde boğazımda oluşan yumru…
“Hymns still close to your ears
That you can still hear
Graves still close to the water
Moon still walking the shore
That mule’s head still in the sycamore
Let me go, let me go, let me go
So I can wait behind.. ”
Jason Andrew Molina (December 30, 1973 – March 16, 2013)
On March 16, 2013, 19-year-old Michal Kisiov (top right) murdered a 15-year-old girl with the help of his two friends in Jihlava, Czech Republic. After meeting her at a club, he took Petry Vondrákové to his apartment where he claimed they had consensual sex. Kisiov reported she said she was going to tell the police he raped her, so he grabbed the young girl and pushed her out of his fourth story window. He retrieved her body and carried it back to his apartment before employing the help of 19-year-old Tomáš Zavřel. The girl was still alive, so Kisiov attempted to manually strangle her, but when that didn’t work, they both tightened a computer cable around her neck. Afterwards, Kisiov put on his biker boots and stood on her chest. Jakub Doležal (top left), 18, arrived once she was dead and helped dispose of her body, which they dumped in the garbage can outside Kisiov’s house. Her remains were later found in a landfill. Kisiov and Zavřel were both convicted of her murder and Kisiov was sentenced to 25 years in prison, while Zavřel received 24 years. Doležal was sentenced to four years for his role in the crime.
I can’t believe it. It’s been two years since the final episode of Green Lantern: The Animated Series aired. GLTAS, the cast & crew, and the Fanterns have been an incredibly special experience, and I hope they continue to be so. The tags have slowed down and the fandom is quieter, but I see no less love and passion expressed in each post and fan work than I ever did. Thank you for being fans, and for continuing to be fans.
Above, you see photos from several of the Burbank meet-ups to watch DC Nation together, including the overwhelming crowd that came in (from across the country in some cases) for the final episode. Thank you for organizing that themaskedman and dcnationfans (turn out for the final two weeks was so large that we didn’t advertise the March 16th meet up). Thank you to the cast and crew members who took time out of their personal lives to come out and meet the fans.
Since the actual anniversary fell on a Monday, when I contacted the head of dcnationfans he and I decided the Sunday before was a great chance to invite the local fans for a 2 year reunion. Yesterday, several of us met at Moore’s Deli in Burbank and spent 4 hours eating, chatting, drawing, and generally just celebrating the show, the fandom, and the friendships born from GLTAS. The show ended, but we got a wonderful story and a wonderful fandom that will keep going.
Wherever you are, whether you align with the Green, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Indigo, or Violet corps… Fanterns Assemble.
