Green Chicken?!? ~~ A "Comical Wednesday" Post


Sorry, fellow babies! It's been a very hectic  week for me, and I just haven't had the time to finish writing Part Two of my series on Terrificon 2018. I'll have it done soon, I promise!

Today I'm just going to reprint the above cover to DC's Green Lantern #76 (April 1970), which began a run of incredible and influential stories by Denny O'Neil (writer) and Neal Adams (artist). That cover is considered to be a classic cover, and has been used as the model for at least three "tribute" covers.

Here are two of them:


This tribute to Neal Adams was drawn by... Neal Adams. (No, really.  But it wasn't his idea!)

And to those we add the following illustration, which relates to my recent post about Kentucky Fried Chicken!


Thanks for your time.

P.S. ~~ COMING SOON! (Watch for it!) A Re-Posting of One of the Best (and Longest) Stories I Ever Posted on This Blog!

    1. I liked it better in the '70s. That's why I collect stuff from that period.

    1. I don't know. I'd have to eat the comic.

      Delete
    2. Well, please don’t eat the comic. I just thought that light might cook the chicken a bit more. I know a warped sense of humor.
      Forgive me.

    3. Don't worry, I can't actually eat the comic. I don't own it. I found the illustration online.

    1. Uh-huh. There are SEVEN colors, powered by different emotions, PLUS Black and White. Here's something I swiped and edited from the internet:

      Green= Will, Powers the Green Lantern Corps

      Yellow= Fear, Powers the Sinestro Corps

      Blue= Hope, Powers the Blue Lantern Corps

      Red= Rage, Powers the Red Lantern Corps

      Orange= Greed, powers The Orange Lantern Larfleeze

      Indigo= Compassion, Powers The Indigo Tribe

      Violet= Love, Powers The Star Sapphires

      The absence of all color is Black, which is the color of death and powers the Black Lanterns

      The combination of all colors is White, which is the color of life and powers the White Lanterns.


      I am not sorry I no longer read the new stuff.

  6. Ooh! Ooh! Is the upcoming repeat of your longest post going to be the Insect Man post?
