the first lantern

I always tell myself that I’m just gonna do quick sketches but then I end up line arting and coloring _(:3」∠)_

Anyways.. continuing on from this idea. I thought it’d be cool to draw all the Paladins as Lanterns. At first I debated on whether or not to make them all Green Lanterns but then I decided otherwise so here are some head canons I came up with while I was drawing

Im trying to find one: kinda obsessed with his character design right now. I think theyd be an amazing cosplay: like to create all the different colored veins. Maybe even add some leds or colored wires.

But i cant find any cosplayers who’ve done it! Anyone know a guy?

I think one of my favorite underrated jokes in The Lego Batman Movie is the one about Green Lantern getting invitations from Superman later than the others because it works on 3 levels.

First, the “loser Green Lantern” persona that carries over from The Lego Movie

Second, the fact that since he spends a lot of time in space, he feasibly could be getting everything late

And third, the fact that the Green Lantern movie is coming out so late in the new DC film universe and he won’t even be in the first Justice League movie

What is it with DC and characters with two first names?

Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent, Kent Nelson, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Timothy Drake, Damian Wayne, Cassandra Cain, Carrie Kelley, Selina Kyle, Dinah Lance, Barry Allen, Bart Allen, Garfield Logan, Jim Gordon, Barbara Gordon, Harley Quinn, Thomas Elliot, Steve Trevor, Connor Kent

October 17th is the birthday of John Stewart, Green Lantern of Sector 2814.  Happy Birthday, John Stewart!  (Not to be confused with the fake news guy, Jon Stewart)

Created by Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams, John Stewart first appeared in Green Lantern v.2 #87 in December 1971.  He is DC’s first African-American superhero.  (The Black Racer appeared earlier in 1971, but is not exactly a “hero”).

A former Marine and architect from Detroit, John Stewart was selected by the Guardians of the Universe to be the backup Green Lantern for Hal Jordan when Guy Gardner was seriously injured.  He served as the backup Green Lantern several times before becoming the primary Green Lantern of Sector 2814 in Green Lantern v.2 #182 (November 1984), when Hal Jordan relinquished his ring.  He has remained a member of the Green Lantern Corps, even after Hal Jordan returned.  He has also served as a member of the Justice League.

Here are a few John Stewart comics from the DuGarm Collection at the University of Iowa: Special Collections.
