    Not necessary.

        I;ve been re-reading the previous arcs, and from the get go "the blackest night" has been there from the get go, COOL.

        Since Hal has been dead once, how will he relate to the Black Lanterns?

        Also could a black lantern only rise if there is an actaul body?

        Since the prophercy and theme comes from the GL oath, does the lines "lin blackest day, in Brightest night" have any signifcane? Or did Sinestro pick them just to reflect how oppersit his corps is to the GLC?

        loving where all this is going, especaily the methaphores for it all, its a massive inspiration(mainly since i've just moved from England to Oz) : ROCK ON
        Yo! I can answer NONE of those questions! Read the book!

          What would you say is the added value of pencilling your own work versus somebody else doing it?

          And what are the deciding factors whether you do it yourself of or get help?
          I think you mean "ink", not pencil!

          I prefer to ink my own work, because I use tiny little pens and can make sure that the details are all there, carefully and lovingly rendered. This takes longer, obviously. Now and then, an editor will decide that it might cut down the time if I only pencil. But then I just end up tightly penciling all of that stuff in, only to have an inker kind of rush over it anyhow.

          It's very frustrating.

            They're in there, right from issue #1!

              So Ethan, is Moose coloring Flash: Rebirth?
              Turns out, no. Alex Sinclair is. There were scheduling conflicts and other problems. I'm a little raw over it right now. But Alex Sinclair will be terrific.

                And now that we have the debut of the Red Lanterns and have a pretty good, basic idea of how they work now... is it really true they can't create any ring constructs? If it is, then what was the deal with the lady you drew holding the two ring construct swords in GL #25?
                They weren't constructs...or weren't meant to be! Just weapons.

                  What does Wally's costume remind you of?

                  It reminds me of Barry's.

                    Why no yellow ring for Superboy Prime? And, along the same lines, if the Anti Monitor is the "Guardian of fear", does that mean he could access the yellow power on his own?

                        • Right on Ethan, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. And your choice of music is awesome, Depeche Mode kicks ass. Be sure to check out their latest album "Playing the Angel" if you haven't already, it's very good.

                            Haha. I thought so.

                            I meant the new one that you're designing

                            • Cool.

                              Ethan I just had a question that I know some people on the board noticed too. Is the Red Lantern symbol taken from the design on the Manhunters' chests?


                              • Yes, Depeche Mode and New Order is good taste in my book. Interestingly, both bands are still producing great music today (though I think New Order is having trouble amongst themselves lately, the last album couldn't have been more than like 2 years ago).

                                So you've said now you didn't base the Orange, Indigo, or Blue symbols on anything in particular. Do you think Geoff (or whoever) may yet still try to reverse engineer them to be from something anyway?
