Dan Jurgens Says Guy Gardner Deserves His Own Series

Guy Gardner - DC Comics News

Dan Jurgens recently took over the writing chores on Green Lanterns, the Green Lantern title that features Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz.

With Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps now over, the most recent arc of Green Lanterns now has many of the other Lanterns have appearing in the title, including Guy Gardner. Like Robert Venditti who wrote Hal and the Green Lantern Corps, Dan Jurgens has now voiced his love of writing Guy Gardner.

I can’t understand why Guy Gardner doesn’t have a series. He should have some kind of a series, he’s a great, fun character.

Guy Gardner headlining his own solo book would not be unthinkable. In the 90’s Guy had his own series that ran almost fifty issues. At the time Guy wasn’t a Green Lantern and commanded a yellow ring then later discovered his alien DNA that turned him into Guy Gardner: Warrior.  When Geoff Johns returned the Green Lantern mythos to its roots with Green Lantern: Rebirth, Guy Gardner once again became a Green Lantern.

Along with returning Guy to the Corps, Johns also brought back Guy’s well-known hot-temper. Jurgens approach follows Johns lead:

I actually think I turned the clock back just a bit on Guy. I think recently he has been a little more reasonable, and I tried to kind of bring back a little bit of that impulsive hot-headedness that I think – along with the arrogance – makes Guy an interesting character.

Green Lanterns #54 hits stores September 5, 2018.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
