Interview - Tim Sheridan Cian Tormey - Alan Scott: Green Lantern

FOC November 5th (issue 2)

  1. To start, congrats on an excellent first issue out this week! The reviews are in and Alan Scott: Green Lantern is scoring high marks across comics reviewers, for context, how long has this first issue been in the works?
  2. What made using Hoover so important for your story?
  3. 10 minutes
  4. I found the first issue incredibly impactful, from the care and love Alan and his boyfriend show each other to the cruel world he must navigate, how do you balance writing a story about a gay man in the 40s with superhero heroics?
  5. Cian, last we spoke you talkeJonas Scharfd about loving to draw boats and lo and behold, you’re drawing plenty in this first issue! What has been the most rewarding thing about drawing this series so far?
  6. Your story is taking place in the 40s DC universe, how much room do you have to play, considering a single choice could affect the universe going forward?
  7. Red Lanterns are relatively new in the grand scheme of things and yet…might your story be rewriting the appearance of Red Lanterns? Is there pressure in delivering on that front?
  8. Will you continue to plumb moments in Alan’s life in each issue, or will the narrative be more linear going forward?
  9. The legacy of Green Lantern is growing thanks to you guys, do you have a favorite Green Lantern story arc?
  10. Alan Scott - have you changed your opinion of the character?
  11. The anti-gay backlash has been disgusting and I understand you’re giving your royalties to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Tim.
