Quote:But let us bear in mind with Staton that he really was a terrific artist and could mold his style to fit the requirements at hand - that marvellous testament that was Green Lantern #192 where to tell Carol Ferriss' story he apes the styles of just about every Green Lantern artist to have worked on the book up to that point.
I'm actually not familiar with that specific issue and now I want to look it up!
Quote:I actually have a couple of pages of Mr. Staton's original art from Green Lantern.
Sounds very nice, but I rarely see any! There was a window where pages from his Green Lantern Corps run came up on e-bay, but the condition of them was appalling, covered in footprints and muck. I do have a couple of pages from that era myself but his initial GL run I have never seen available...
I should clarify that I actually have a page from Green Lantern Corps and one from Guy Gardner Reborn. I got them about 3-4 years ago, they are in fine condition. At the time, according to Staton's official site, the majority of his GL related pages were unavailable for sale because they were being displayed at some museum. I don't know their current status.
It's sad to hear that there is any original art out there in such terrible condition.
