Aside form his unrecognised gift for design One of the reasons I appreciated Joe Staton's Green Lantern was in his ability to lend Hal and other Lanterns body language, Joe is about the only artist to work on the character who thought about that and created for himself a different approach to show how the Power Ring could be used, how it didn't have to be a clenched fist but an open and relaxed hand that could operate the Ring, and that is an idiosyncrasy unique to him, a different way in which Green Lantern could be presented.
His work was refined with Bruce Patterson inking and I think for myself that was the peak of his form, he had created the memorable design for The Huntress, and the Star Sapphire, and he created new designs for the earthbased Corps, most memorably Guy Gardners now trademark costume.
But put in the simplest terms... I just like the mans work!
