As previously mentioned, it's Guy Gardner Week over at Dave's Long Box. Dave's vacation started today, but fear not... he decided to keep everyone busy in his absence by starting a Guy Gardner meme: "What is Guy saying? You make the call!" On the left is my own humble contribution.
While Dave clearly provided us with the classic, psychotic version of Guy to work with, I have to admit that my fondest memories of Gardner are from his Justice League International days, after he suffered a severe blow to the head that resulted in a major personality shift, and the emergence of the nauseatingly kinder, gentler Guy Gardner.
This of course led to the classic sequence of JLI covers (from issues 18 and 19), wherein Guy reverts to type just in time to face the intergalactic mercenary Lobo. Of course, this was back when Lobo was still an obscure and enjoyable character, before the fanboys completely missed the point that he was intended as a parody of such "ultraviolent" Marvel characters as Wolverine and the Punisher, after which his massive overexposure as DC's resident badboy antihero began in force.
Apparently, Lobo's appeal was as lost on Keith Giffen as Rorschach's popularity with fans was on Alan Moore. Which reminds me of a funny Lobo anecdote I posted on my Simpsons blog a few months back.
