Default Old collector but here

Hey there! Welcome to the board. And that's also exactly when I started reading GL stuff.

It makes me feel really old to think that "since Hal became Parallax" constitutes an "old collector".

I also was already a longtime GL fan when Emerald Twilight crapped on my childhood. But I was in High School, so I was still a minor at least.

Hal became Parallax 25 years ago.

I'm aware. Why else would it make me feel old?

25 years indeed and I've been counting. That's how long Ron Marz and Darrell Banks have been war criminals, as far as I'm concerned.

Marz and Banks didn't make that decision.

Denny O'Neil, the man who ruined Hal in the first place, had a big hand in it. Get mad at him. And get mad at Jenette Kahn, who adamantly refused to undo it for so long.

Greetings, fellow Virginian. Even though my heart is in Lexington, KY, I live in the Shenandoah Valley. We're actually pretty far away from one another despite living in the same state. Until I looked at Wise on a map just now, I could have sworn that it was closer.

There's an interview somewhere where Darryl talked about being informed of the story, and he said that the one thing he didn't want was for "anything to happen to Kilowog." Of course, one of the first things he was asked to do was draw Hal smoking 'Wog.
