The Green Lantern has always been one of my favorite superheroes, in spite of having a horrible rogues gallery. The ring’s powers may be silly, but at least it gives him the power of flight. In many ways he’s the adult version of Harold and the Purple Crayon.

And there’s something potent of the symbolism of a ring, be it a wedding ring, or the One Ring from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings fantasy.

This movie had the largest number of scenes, in fact they may be considered acts. I enjoyed drawing the green magic, and the wolf was fun too, perhaps reminiscent of Peter and the Wolf? The ending, as always, was problematic, and perhaps too similar to The Artist, but was fun to draw.
