Funny Book Forensics (4N6) 249 John Stewart


Greg and Dan continue the conversation on one-off and throw-away characters. Guy Gardner was the other “man without fear” in the DC Universe until he got hit by a bus.  John Stewart steps in to be the new back-up Green Lantern on Earth in Green Lantern (Vol. 2) 87. 

Like most of the Green Lantern/Green Arrow run this issue challenges social norms taking racism head-on. We also discuss the sales free fall that led to cancellation of one of the most influential comics runs in history.

This Bronze Age gem features stories by Denny O’Neil and Elliot S! Maggin. The amazing art is by legends Green Lantern 87Neil Adams and Dick Giordano.
