Fetching: In brightest day, in blackest night...
In the past week or so, the creative world has suffered two losses.
The first was that of one Martin Nodell, age 91, creator of the DC
comics character The Green Lantern. The other was a personal hero
of mine... Joe Barbera, age 95, half of the dynamic duo behind all of
the great Hanna-Barbera cartoons we have grown up with since the
sixties. In tribute, Sweet Uncle Lou of the Fetch-a-Sketch now calls
upon his artists to create an illustration depicting any of the beings
that have worn the mighty ring of The Green Lantern — YOU PICK!
You have Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle
Rayner... even Kilowog! There are tons to choose from. It’s up to
you... But wait, that’s not all, fanboys... You must also render a
Hanna-Barbera character to interact with your GL. Have at ’er, lads.
Make me proud!

Look at the ring! Look at the ring!
It is time to bring in the New Year, and this post we see that green is
the new black, jack! Take a look-see, art lovers, and check out the
tribute-tastical job my boys did!
