In blackest night.

I blogged about Green Lantern recently and how much I like the hero. Martin Nodell, artist and creator of the original Golden Age GL from the 1940s, passed away yesterday.

While I was not a fan of the "Earth Two" Alan Scott version, without this original idea, there would have been no Silver Age Hal Jordan GL. The comic cover I selected here shows both illustrated by the inimitable Gil Kane.

I met Marty at a comic convention in St. Louis many years ago, and he was a kind and generous man. The night is blacker without him.
