Default Artists you'd like to see on GL

Spinning this out of the GL#49 discussion thread, what are some artists you'd like to see on the book?

I think we can all agree that one of the major weaknesses in the current run Tan's inability to not be shit. Venditti's writing while not the best is probably around average, unfortunately he's not getting any help on the art side of things. So assuming we do get a brand new creative team, who would you like to see on the book?

Factoring in my belief that DC won't end up putting a true A-list artist on the book here are my suggestions:
  • Karl Kerschl

  • Mikel Janin


  • Cliff Chiang


  • Jorge Jimenz


  • Barnaby Bagenda


Some other unrealistic options I wouldn't mind seeing would be Dan Mora, Joelle Jones and Doc Shaner.

I don't see the appeal of Doc Shaner and Cliff Chiang

In a perfect world, I get Ivan Reis back. But I'm guessing that glorious ship has sailed.

Tony Daniel is a nice choice, as long as he doesn't do any writing. At all.

I still like easy Ed Benes among the DC crew.

I saw someone mention Doc Shaner - it is different, one of those clean line looks, a bit stylistic, but it looked cool to me in GL: Darkseid War. I could live with that.

Rumors for Rebirth so far suggest we get two GL books, so it will be interesting to see what kind of priority they have for the Emerald corner of the DCU...

\_(ツ)_/¯

And I don't see the appeal of Daniel. Plus if he's drawing he's probably writing as well and I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole.

Yep, he would've been great, instead they kept making him work with Lobdell.

Any of the guys mentioned would work. I've always wanted to see Dale Eaglesham return to the title myself...

Dale seems somehow underrated, I always liked his work a bunch.

Benes is not great. He's a porn artist. Everything is stiff and you'd be hard pressed to find a page of his where his women aren't disfigured and his men are scratchier than the lines used to draw the women's hair.

I actually think we might have a new artist team come GL #51. Here's a conservation Venditti had with a fan on twitter where he dodges a question when asked if his X-O artist, Rafa Sandoval, will be staying on GL past #51.



I haven't seen much of his work but I'm already liking what I see from this cover.

Sandoval would definitely be an upgrade over Tan, I've read some of his X-Men work. I do expect a wholly new creative team come June though.

With Bruce going back to being Batman, Supes getting his powers back, and Wonder Woman going back to her old costume, i'm surprised that Hal hasn't ditched the glove yet.

Nicola Scott, the work on Earth 2 would work on GL, but always first and foremost Ivan Reis or Alan Davis

Francis isn't the best writer, but he's far from bad and his art is amazing so it works out in the end.

In addition to the artists already mentioned, would like to see the following:

Brian Stalfreeze (if he wasn't at Marvel)
Julie Anderson
Felipe Smith (just for something radically different)
no chance in hell of it happening, but I would like to see a GL one-shot done by Hirohiko Araki (creator of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure)
Kevin O'Neil

Both are Marvel exclusive, no?

Default Another suggestion

Yildiray Cinar would be very good on Green Lantern, I was looking at his work on the Metal Men part of the Legends of Tomorrow anthology book. I also liked his work on a Legion of Super Heroes Book actually I liked it a whole lot. He is in the DC family so it wouldn't be too hard to pull off. Here is a link to what looks like some commissioned GLC artwork.

Cinar was a hot artist right up until they put him on Firestorm and then I never heard from him again. smh

I believe his most recent work was Superior Iron Man.

Another instance of DC using hot artists to prop up titles they want to succeed (not a bad thing in and of itself) but they haven't been too successful at it, it might serve them well to put their best and brightest on their best properties (exception being when the best and brightest have a true love for a character ie I have no great love for Plastic Man but EVS does so he might knock that out of the park). That rising tide could raise all boats, if DC had 3 or 4 franchises as healthy as the Batman one, like Green Lantern, Justice League/Society, Superman, then those four franchises could support all the passion projects and outside the box titles like a Mosaic, Demon Knights or Prez. Back to Cinar is he an independent because he is on this Legends of tomorrow mini out this week or was this something that was in the can before he left to go to Marvel?
