No time frame, but it looks like they're coming down already.

Sadly, no update to report. Both Tenz and I have been swamped with real life work. There's a lot of rework needed on the profiles due to SECRET ORIGIN.

I'm gathering resources for a new feature, with a fall 2008 target date. No info to release yet, just throwing it out there so I'll feel embarrassed if I don't come through.

Heading to Pennsylvania this week for vacation... Sesame Place / Gettysburg (there's a combo).. and hitting some of the local comic stores.

Nothing huge to report. Though not advertised, the indexes are getting more up-to-date.

My work on the GLCWP has just been to my offline version, trying to see what works and what doesn't. There's some features I'd like to present to Tenz, one of which my wife was pretty impressed with. Not ready yet though, and I don't like "under construction" as that still describes most of the site as we're heading towards our 12th year!

Though I'm glad there's SECRET ORIGIN to "establish" Hal Jordan / Green Lantern, some of the changes play all kinds of hell with previous histories. I'm in for the long haul, as ever, so let's see what happens. I do get a kick out of trying to reconcile the retcons and when all else fails, it's just a comic.

::sigh:: Had to go on wikia to ask for some copied profiles to be taken down. Not sure why people want to create a page that's just a copy of another page. Try linking, it's easier.

I'm not sure why people swipe either, but don't let it discourage you guys. You have one of the best GL info sites on the web. I guess I don't notice many swipes because I only hit 2 GL related sites outside of this forum. All the pretenders need not apply.

Was just about to mail you about it but it seems you have already noticed :-)

I try to index the new Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps as soon as possible after they hit the stands and since the only issues that still needed indexing of GLC were issues 21-22 I thought I might as well get them done as well and I couldn't really do that and not process your Zale profile could I?

Some of the others I just need to whip up some good images for and since we haven't seen a lot of them yet it becomes really hard to find good images.

Most characters have now been properly linked from the indexes so that you will be taken to the GL WebPage profile by clicking the names.

I might be missing a few characters but I will try to fix that as soon as possible.

Heh heh.

Hey boss. I'd been tying the home version to the web version and noticed the changes.

So now I know the secret to getting the profiles online quicker. I'll have to get to working the profiles as soon as I get to page 22.

Wanna shoot for twice a month updates?

My son thinks I should whip up some concept drawings, but I'm not sure I want to go that route. I may try it with the (unfinished) power battery profile. If I can get some free time I'll break out the back issues and start scanning. (like this isn't free time now - actually up doing laundry)

For GLC 27, I can give you a listing of Who's Who for the scenes in the crypts... some better shots of previously unseen GLs. (Well, unseen until SECRET FILES)

I believe we've added 61 profiles this year... I'd like to get that to 100 before year's end. See below for the "honestly, almost finished" profiles. I'd be happy with one (or two, but that'll be stretching it) more updates before the month is out.

Just wanted everyone to know that there is a new small update on the Unofficial Green Lantern Corps Web Page. Green Lanterns Greet, Grumb and Zevonn Parzzx have been added as well as indexes for Green Lantern Vol. 4 #34 and Green Lantern Corps Vol. 2 #28.

Expect more updates in October as Mike has sent me a whole bunch of stuff to work with. However, I just got married this weekend and I'm off to Bali with my lovely wife tomorrow so the page won't be updated until October.
