Green Lantern Mythology Explained

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 14, 2017, 3:47 PM

"In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night…"

While you might not be able to finish this famous oath, you most likely still recognize that it belongs to DC Comics' Green Lantern. The character has been around since 1940 and, barring a 10-year hiatus from 1949 to 1959, has pretty much been in constant publication ever since. 

What began as a comic book about a singular hero with a magical ring now encompasses a pantheon of thousands of ring-bearing space police and an entire rainbow armada of aliens with similar abilities. Don't feel bad if you're not fully up to speed on the Green Lantern's origin story or the history of the Green Lantern Corps (not to mention all of their many-hued enemies and allies) because it's hard for even the most dedicated comic book nerds to keep it all straight sometimes. So, power up your ring and explore some of the most obscure bits of Green Lantern mythology.

Lightweight: Beyond now on sale!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 10, 2016, 9:34 PM
The third book in Nicholas Ahlhelm's exciting superhero novel series is now on sale in both paperback and digital form! I developed the character design of Kevin Mathis, AKA Lightweight, and provided the cover for this and previous editions.

Here's the synopsis:

Kevin Mathis thought he was sacrificing his own life as the heroic Lightweight. But instead of dying, he found himself transported to the world of Nill. Now trapped on an alien world, he must wind his way through scavengers, alien warriors, political turmoil and an evil warlord that wants him dead! Even with the allies he makes on this new world, Lightweight might never make it back to Earth.
But even as he struggles to survive, back home he has allies searching to find the missing hero. Millicent Bryant wants nothing more than to find her lost friend, as she refuses to believe Lightweight died. But even with the help of another man inside the Lightweight costume, she may not be able to stop an old threat from wreaking chaos in Federation!

RETROSTAR RPG Cover 3 - Robo-Future
This is the cover I created for a new supplement for Spectrum Games' '70s sci-fi movie and TV show-insprired RETROSTAR RPG, for which I was also the artist. 

This one is inspired by '70s TV shows like The Six Million Dollar Man and by the classic 1973 movie Westworld, with a bit of the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers thrown in for good measure.

CC+VF: All-Out War RE
This is a "remastered" version of my original cover to the superhero role-playing game Capes, Cowls & Villains Foul from Spectrum Games. I didn't want to change any of the original layout or content, just clean up some of the blah anatomy and tinker with the lighting.

You can still pick up a pdf or print copy of the rulebook here.

All of the characters are my own creations—except Suicide Jack, who was created by my brother, Al—and they are "on loan" to Spectrum for use in the game. They include (left-to-right, top-to-bottom):

• The Celestial
• Moon Girl brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Suicide Jack
• Apollo
• Artemis
• Americana brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Breaker brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Lillith brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Stonehenge
• Death Star fav.me/d37jbfz
• Pantera
• Goralka
• Vector brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Deathstalker brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…
• Slavedriver brentjs.deviantart.com/art/Cha…

Thank you so much!  I love superheroes!  Always have!  I appreciate all of the :+fav:s and the comment. 

I checked out your page and your artwork needs some work, but your social and political commentaries are pretty exceptional.  Remember: We all start at the beginning and none of us take the same path.  I, myself, have soooooo much to learn it can be overwhelming at times.  Keep drawing!
