R.I.P. Martin Nodell
This is sad news. Marty Nodell was always a fixture at the Baltimore ComicCon... he was one of the friendliest creators I have ever met, just an all-around Nice Guy. Who was Martin Nodell? Well, he created the Green Lantern among other characters way back in the 1940s Golden Age. HERE'S a decent obituary on CNN. HERE'S his Wikipedia entry. He left quite a legacy, and he will be sorely missed.
(A tip of the hat to all of you who sent me this news.)
