The Green Lantern Corps Podcast


Ron Marz to guest star on the GL Spotlight Podcast

Posted in podcast by mrread7 on December 16, 2008

You read right, I talked to Ron Marz a few days ago. He said he would be more than happy to guest star on our upcoming podcast. Marz is well known for his work on Silver Surfer and Green Lantern, as well as the Marvel vs DC crossover and Batman/Aliens. He also worked on the CrossGen Comics series Scion, Mystic, Sojourn, and The Path. At Dark Horse Comics he created Samurai: Heaven and Earth and various Star Wars comics. He has also done work for Devil’s Due Publishing’s Aftermath line, namely Blade of Kumori. In 1995, he had a brief run on XO-Manowar, for Valiant Comics.
While being chiefly responsible for bringing popularity back to Green Lantern and introducing a new generation (and boost in sales) to the series, Marz received criticism from factions of the fandom for his part in turning the character of Hal Jordan into a mass murderer in order to make way for a new Green Lantern character, Kyle Rayner. He has also been criticized for the perceived misogynistic tone of his writing, in particular a story he wrote for Green Lantern which inspired the name of the Women in Refrigerators website. Marz reported receiving numerous hate letters and death threats. He returned to the Green Lantern series after an absence to pen the final arc of the book’s third volume, then the 12-issue “Ion” maxi-series.
Marz’s more recent works includes a number of Top Cow books including Witchblade and an upcoming Cyberforce relaunch. For DC Comics, he has written Ion, a 12 part comic book miniseries that followed the Kyle Rayner character after the One Year Later event, and Tales of the Sinistro Corps Presents: Parallax and Tales of the Sinestro Corps Presents: Ion, two one-shot tie-ins to the Green Lantern crossover, The Sinestro Corps War. I’m really looking forward to having Ron on the show, we’re looking to either March or April when he will join us. I’ll let everyone know what month he’ll be joining us.
