Default Ron Marz

Marz, who hasn't written Green Lantern since 2004, is suddenly getting a lot of hype here. What's up with that?

Probably because of his story in the Anniversary issue?

I suspect it's because Marz recently went on Twitter and threw a tantrum about Harry Philippo's politely asking him to sign some comics covers at a con in 2003, or whenever it was. After the con, Harry publicly praised Marz for his graciousness in signing them.

Apparently Marz's regrettable outburst about an unjustified grievance from that long ago has made him relevant again. Harry is dead and can't speak for himself, and normally I wouldn't attempt to, but in this case I think I should.

Robert Venditti has a story in the anniversary issue. Maybe we should hype him instead of Marz. After all, most of today's readers actually remember when Venditti wrote the comic.

As a matter of fact, Venditti said he never read Marz's stories until after he was hired as the writer of Green Lantern. That's how far removed from the comic Marz is.

That's the way it should stay.

"Tantrum"?

You're fucking delusional.

He abruptly started ranting about something that happened many years ago. Harry didn't intend any offense to him and he shouldn't have taken any, let alone should he have nursed a grudge against a dead man for that long. That was just uncalled for.

But hey, it got him back in the comic book news again. For fifteen minutes, anyway.

The last thing I want to do is to discuss any of that shit again. And I thought I'd never have to. But if you kick a dead friend of mine, then I'll speak up for him.
