Martin Nodell (15 November 1915 – 9 December 2006, USA) was a cartoonist and commercial artist.
In 1940, he created the super-hero character Green Lantern (Alan Scott) at All-American Comics (which was later acquired by the company that would become DC Comics). He drew and Bill Finger wrote his stories in “All-American Comics”, “All Star Comics”, and “Green Lantern” through 1947.
Nodell then went to Timely (which would become Marvel) through the end of the decade. He drew stories of ‘Captain America’, ‘Human Torch’, and ‘Sub-Mariner’.
He left comics in 1950 for a career in commercial illustration. In the 1980s, he published a few items at DC Comics and began to enjoy attention from fans. He was nominated for an Eisner Award the year of his death, 2011.
During his first year in comic books, he used the pen name “Mart Dellon”. He then signed his work with both “Mart Nodell” and “Martin Nodell”.
