Classic Comics with Matthew B. Lloyd Alan Scott: The Green Lantern and the Art of the Retcon

DC’s current Alan Scott: The Green Lantern mini-series seeks recontextualize the history of the first Green Lantern.  How well does it work as a retcon?  Does it fit the character?  Will it necessarily erase more than it gains for the sake of diversity and inclusion?  It’s a delicate subject and I hope to present a balanced perspective on this topic.     You can follow the show @ComicsLloyd on Twitter or send an email to   You can find me on Twitter @MattB_Lloyd and at where I write reviews and edit news stories.   You can also check out my chapter in “Politics in Gotham: The Batman Universe and Political Thought.” “Black Panther and Philosophy: What Can Wakanda Offer the World?”   “Batman’s Villains and Villainesses: Multidisciplinary Perspectives On Arkham’s Souls”   Episode 39 Notes   The Golden Age Harlequin   Jade   Obsidian   Irene Miller   Dr. Mid-Nite   Myra Mason   --- Send in a voice message:
