Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials and interviews recorded at Comic-Cons featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, The Green Lantern artist Liam Sharp drops in to discuss what it's like working with Grant Morrison, how he's been influenced by both European and American artists and why he always draws for black and white, all while rendering one of the more unusual Green Lanterns out there—the hot-headed Mag Max.
Grant Morrison may have a reputation as a visionary and forward-thinking writer, but he also has a great love for comics' past—something that's on full display in his latest series, The Green Lantern. In this episode of DC Tales from the Vault, Ben LeClear looks at the first issue of The Green Lantern, explaining some of the book's many references to DC's past.
