    That's right--

We’re like, “Okay, he’s a military guy.” And then somebody said, “Louis Gossett Jr.—An Officer and a Gentlemen.” I said, “Yeah,” and I went, “Wait a minute—Samuel L. Jackson,” and everyone went, “Yeah!” So that’s kind of who he is. He’s a real rugged, no-nonsense, barking orders kind of Green Lantern—and we love him to pieces. We love him so much [that] he’s like in almost every episode. I predict that you guys are going to love him too.

    But I see him more as a Denzel type--

    Wow!! This looks great! It feels good to have my favorite character doing action along with other Leaguers.

    The artwork looks good. The coloring in those screenshots sticks out. Can't wait to read this!

    Are there any character's you'd like to find out John served alongside while he was in the military? Always thought it's be cool if he knew Deadshot before either of them became supers.

    Steve Trevor would be cool too.

    Why did you have that original thought about Bendis's preferred GL? He wrote that issue of LoSH that identified John as "the best Lantern ever."



    Not to mention, he usually does a good job with black characters, writing them as well and spotlighting them as much as the white ones he writes.

    It's because when he first came to DC, he claimed that he's not familiar with any other Green Lanterns, other than Hal Jordan. So he used Hal Jordan often as guest appearances in his Superman titles. He's known for doing good with black characters over at Marvel and I expected him to deal with black characters here, except for characters like John (because of the reasons above). So I was a little surprised that John would have decent dialogue as a guest star. I do know John was made brief appearances on his title only because I thought he had no choice, since John is a leaguer now. But maybe he's actually fond of the character more now than ever. So that's a good sign.

    It's nice to see John Stewart in the background! I believe this was shown multiple of times whenever Jason Johnson gets interviewed.
