Winding to a Close

And so, we draw to the close of Glorify Guy Week. It's been a delight, but all good things must end of course. So I'm going to finish things up, by simply posting some of my favorite "Guy" moments.

There are a LOT.

I've always thought the little "expletives...and lots of 'em" tag was hilarious. It allowed us to fill in the blanks with our own feelthy imaginations.

Shirtless Guy is always appreciated. It doesn't really happen that often, prior to the whole Warrior period.

I've always liked this one. Kalinara is right, Guy IS surprisingly hot.

And he's smokin' in sunglasses.


An interesting moment with Booster. Guy was played for laughs so often,that it was always a surprise when he was shown being heroic.

Guy displays his talent as an artist, while playing with Kilowog.

Guy and Kyle
Hanging out with Kyle...and looking almost as pretty.

Just hanging out with Ted drinking beer.

Hanging out with Jaime. I see a trend here. Guy is fun to hang out with.

This one still makes me tear up. *sniff*

Still showing his moxie.

And finally, what you've all really been waiting for...

Guy was drawn rather well a lot of times in the JLA/E/I run. It always surprised me when I found a pretty faced panel of him because normally I just can't get past that stupid haircut!
Where is the tearful pic from?

All in all, a good week. :)

Guy is actually rather nice looking when he's not making faces. That is very seldom, however.

The crying picture is from the mini-series that Giffen/DeMatteis and Maguire did, and it was I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice League! Or possibly from Fomerly Known as the Justice League, I can't remember off the top of my head, by they are out of continuity, although quite hilarious.

But they are crying over Tora.

Oberon's favorite actor is Bugs Bunny?

"Beware my power." HELLS yeah.

Suddenly I was reminded of "Glorified G" by Pearl Jam.

I love all of your choices. But I have to add one more to the list... from Blue Beetle #25: "That's right baby girl. I'm the crazy one." That's one of my favorite panels because of the way Milagro is striking a heroic stance trying to be like Guy. There was so much emotion leading up to that scene (and in the whole issue, for that matter), and Guy really got a nice chance to shine.

*waves proudly* I did that! I did that!

Yup, Mac beat me to it. But it DOES display such a unique "Guyness", doesn't it?

Awww, I'm sorry that Guy week is over. :-( I was rather enjoying it!

Have you ever seen Rick Veitch's depiction of Guy in Swamp Thing #81? I'm of mixed feelings, because it depicts Guy as a killer (he blows up the departing spaceship of a benevolent alien, thinking it's part of the INVASION!)...but at the same time he's still got some very cool moments:

1. Seeing the green glowing figure, Abby's hippy friend Chester says "Hey, it's Green Lantern! He's a good guy, right?" Then, we get a very nice close-up of Guy, saying. "That's right. I'm a very good Guy."

2. Abby angrily throws a lump of mud at the back of Guy's head; without even looking back, he creates a shield covering his back half, while nonchalantly adjusting his collar.

And it IS magnificently illustrated, as you might expect from Veitch.

Sea...sorry, SKY, it is ALWAYS Guy Gardner week around here!

Erich, I have NOT seen Swamp Thing 81, or if I have, I don't remember it. I'll have to go pawing through my old Swamp Things. I DO have the one that introduced John Constantine...but this one with Guy sounds awesome! I must have it!
