We Lost Another Great One...

I've just read the sad news that another great comics artist has passed away: Martin Nodell, the creator of Green Lantern. I had met him at a couple of conventions, and he always struck me as a very charming, entertaining guest who loved meeting his fans.

In a previous post, I shared a sketch that Nodell had done for me on the first page of my Golden Age-themed convention sketchbook. The next time I saw Martin Nodell after that, I asked him if he'd do another sketch on the book's final page (though my collection is still a long way from reaching that last page). It only seemed fitting to give him the last word...
