Hi, Ethan here. I thought I should join this glorious forum and be among you, the people that I love. Please feel free to ask questions or leave comments on this thread for me, and I will check it nearly every day and respond.

Sinestro gets a bad rap,

I love you

The cover for Rebirth #5 is one of my favorites

Gl Josh 05-14-2008 05:13 AM

Looking forward to see you (and Moose) in Chicago. Oh and thanks for signing those Ivan Reis lithos for me, they made some great Best Man gifts. You kick some serious ass (like Chuck Norris with the Speedforce).

Raker616 05-14-2008 05:37 AM

Hey EVS, wondering if there is anything we can do to get Moose back on GL it just isn't the same without him.

Andrew NDB 05-14-2008 06:18 AM

Welcome, Ethan! An honor and a pleasure, and it was awesome meeting you on Saturday.

Sinestro does get a bad rap.

ComicGeek 05-14-2008 06:21 AM

ETHAN!!!!!

omg, one question for you.

For all fans of Lantern you are the man people most associate with THE green lantern artist from your work on Rebirth and a few issues of the current series. And the Sinestro special was one of my favorites.

So why aren't you doing more GL? Or are there things that you know that we don't know that are coming? Hmmmm???

Ωmega Man 05-14-2008 06:30 AM

It's awesome to have all the pros around this place now. One more reason why I don't need the GJ forums anymore!

Ethan, Andrew mentioned a sketch he was getting from you with specific details in Kyle Rayner's costume. On commisions do you get a lot of requests for certain small details? Like say if I wanted a bald Superman in rehab drunk next to Britney Spears would that be too much?

Welcome to the forum Ethan.

:cheers:

BuckyBarnes45 05-14-2008 07:49 AM

Ethan, thanks from this long time GL fan for making GL look like a serious book. So many well written books today do not seem to have serious art. Yours make GL seem like a strong hero and exciting story. SO kudos.

I love the fact you and Geoff made the green energy described and looked different for each GL (especially in REbirth). I remember Steve Englehart did similar in the writing of an issue near Crisis where John, Hal and Guy all had exposition text describing how they view the green...but the art made the constructs all seem the same.

Also...kudos for the "shining logos" on the GLs. I love that touch and its interesting to see other artists pick it up even in flashback stories!

Parrylakks 05-14-2008 07:58 AM

Its great to have you here, Ethan... you are a truly talented man.
And on a side note: my brother is going to name his son, Ethan.

Jack-O-Lantern 05-14-2008 08:13 AM

Ethan, welcome. Love your art in GL and everything else I've seen. I especially loved your latest in JLA #20, that was amazing. I wish you could do Flash or WW more often.

One question; Do you care to comment on the idea of Guy as an Orange Lantern that you made over on the DCMB? A joke? Potential idea? Possible spoiler??? C'mon man, you can't tease us GL fans like that!!! lol

Oh, and on another note. I'd love to get a sketch of the Ion and Parallax entities from you some day. I want to tattoo them on my ribs.....

GreenLanternGeek 05-14-2008 11:15 AM

Welcome Man!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome to have you!

Rotten2thecorps 05-14-2008 11:37 AM

The Big-E in the house. I love this guy. I have met alot of cool people but the Big-E is by far the coolest. If he is at a con near you go see him. The man is funny nice and has an aprecation for the fine things in life like Arch Hall Jr. flicks. It is good to have you here bro.

W.West 05-14-2008 12:33 PM

Welcome Ethan, I too enjoyed your work in JLA #20 and GL:Rebirth. Glad to have you here. Hope to see more of your work soon.

Sasha Bordeaux 05-14-2008 12:57 PM

Hi Ethan, it's fantastic to have you here! :)
I'd love to see you working on Barry with Geoff very soon!

Lishego 05-14-2008 02:00 PM

Welcome aboard, great to have you here. enjoy!

If I didn't know better, I might think you were stalking me, from GL forum to GL forum...

Thanks, Rayner...! That cover was drawn under pressure in a hotel room during Wizard World Texas, 2005. My editor was literally outside my door, pacing, like an expectant father.

Which would make me a mother....

Anyhow, glad you liked it. :)

Well, you can always make your feelings known on message boards that DC editors are likely to visit. DCComics.com, for example. Obviously, I love when Moose colors Green Lantern (or just my art in general) and I'd love to see his return.

Thanks! I would be working on Green Lantern forever if it weren't for the fact that the ONE PROJECT that could possibly tear me away was finally offered to me. And it's the project that I and many other creators have salivated over ever since I started working for DC Comics 10+ years ago, but knew could never happen. I MUST do it.

Green Lantern is something I hope I'll always be able to return to, especially while Geoff is writing it. I have to make my mark on this other thing though. You'll understand soon enough. :)

I would probably look up at you quizzically from my table and say, "Um....is there something else you'd rather have?"

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 05-14-2008 02:29 PM

Thanks for coming by Ethan! I'm looking forward to meeting you at the show in NH you're doing. Scott Collins should be there too, so I'm pretty pumped to meet two guys that have been so heavily associated with my two favorite heroes.

BTW (and you problably can't answer this, but I'm gonna ask anyway!), is there any Barry Allen crossing your drawing board in the near future?

Oh could it be? Could the Big-E finally get plasticman? I keep hoping that you get your shot on that character.

Chamalkan 05-14-2008 02:58 PM

As you're an insider: are there plans for anything besides the GL and GLC monthlies with GL stuff? Like mini's, one shots (besides Rage of the Red Lanterns) or even another monthly?
