“Designing the Orange Lanterns has taken a lot of time, but it's been
fun. I had a blast designing them. I think I only redesigned one or two
of the Green Lanterns, but coming up with all the stuff for the Vega
System, the world they're in and the characters – I had a blast. Geoff
gave me some freedom when it came to character designs, and I could
almost come up with things without restriction. And it was really fun
to have the kind of freedom but still work to achieve the goals Geoff
wanted for the characters. It's really exciting to have the first issue
coming out now.”
