A Good Joe


I heard a little piece of news today that really made me smile...and brought back lots of memories. Writer Charles Santino passed on the news that he had found an artist for his newest project, a graphic adaptation of Ayn Rand's Anthem, to be released by NAL sometime in 2011. The artist in question? Joe Staton, one of my absolute favorites in comics and one who made a huge impression on me growing up. He was the Green Lantern artist in the early '80s, and before that, he had defined the Justice Society and helped create the Huntress. I loved his work then and I'm happy to see this comics legend continue to make new contributions to the field. Charles also gave this description of how Joe will be working on Anthem: "The adaptation of Anthem will be the first work by Staton to be shot directly from his pencils." I'm anxiously awaiting the release!
