Brad Walker Talks Green Lantern: New Guardians
Former Guardians of the Galaxy artist Brad Walker headed over to green pastures with DC Comics taking on Superman with Action Comics.
Now the artist has landed another cosmic gig with Green Lantern: The New Guardians, paired up with Justin Jordan.
Speaking with MTV, Brad Walker talked about collaborating with Jordan as well as his favorite New Guardian and bringing his style and design to the book.
Here's a snippet:
The design of the GL universe is already really strong. It's one of the reasons I feel privileged to have landed this particular job. The characters retain their classic simplicity and grace in appearance that goes back to the original Hal Jordan design. That's one of the best, ever. I draw plenty of detail and realistic elements, so I'm able to do that without getting bogged down in complicated, busy costumes that slow down the flow of the story or confuse the eye. And, as far as everything around the characters, the limit goes far beyond the sky, you know? [Smiles]
Brad Walker and Justin Jordan begin their cosmic journey together on Green Lantern: The New Guardians #21, in stores June 19th.
