fanterns assemble


March 16, 2013 – The Finale

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.
