Superman Special #1 and twenty-four hours with Gil Kane|
Hello there, I would like to present to you two works, or perhaps one and a half. The first is Gil Kane's classic Superman story, "Behold, the Ultimate Man!" The second is my 24-hour comic where I attempted to redraw and retell the story, with mixed success.
I don't know how easy this will be to read -- you're reading two things at once, and it can be confusing. There is a lot of writing below. Take your time and please feel free to respond to only part instead of the whole.
Superman Special #1: "Behold! The Ultimate Man!" 44 pages, of which the equivalent of 14 are reproduced below interwoven with 24 pages of hasty reinterpretation.

The man the power ring picked before Hal|
We all know that Hal Jordan was chosen to become Green Lantern because the power ring found him to be most worthy of all the inhabitants of Earth. In this story from Action Comics Weekly, however, we meet the other ten individuals who the ring considered before settling on Jordan, including the one who was deemed worthier than Jordan and chosen ahead of him. (Guy Gardner and John Stewart were two of ten, obviously.)

The Green Lantern franchise is famous for its fridges|
In my last post I left John in a bit of a tough spot, imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. I figured it wasn't really fair to leave him hanging and I ought to post how that entire mess was resolved...and I will. Eventually.
I thought it was important that I first establish how exactly he ended up in that situation. It's a tale of dickery, theft, torture and one of the most blatant and indefensible cases of WiR imaginable.
