Thoughts on the Green Lanterns Rebirth

Again, the time between blogging shows itself by looking back at where Green Lantern was versus where it is now. The announcement of the Rebirth Green Lantern titles struck me as a very odd move by DC. The main monthly book, Green Lantern, became Green Lanterns focusing on newbie Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz.... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern Post Geoff Johns

Geoff Johns leaving the Green Lantern titles was a landmark moment.  So big, in fact, that DC decided to revamp the whole line up, replacing every other creative on the books as well.  I might argue that this was a tad overkill, but it was understandable. Its a change I was pretty excited about, having been... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern #1

In addition to trying out lots of new titles from the new 52 I am, of course, continuing to pick up the Green Lantern titles, which, much like the Bat-franchise have emerged from this reboot with tweaks to some of the earlier continuity, but their ongoing storylines unscathed. As a result, I did have some... Continue Reading →

Justice League #1

Well, there's really one big news story dominating comics at the moment.  At somepoint I'll come back to talk about Flashpoint, but it has long been overshadowed by the reboot that's finally arrived after several months of hype.  And relaunching the DC Universe falls to the obvious title, with the new volume of Justice League...

Green Lantern #67

And so, despite the delays, the finale of War of the Green Lanterns finally arrives with some big shocks in store as Geoff Johns plants the seeds for the next storylines as Krona is being defeated. But did anyone else think it all felt a bit rushed? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern Review

So, after all the trailers, I finally got the chance to see the hotly-anticipated Green Lantern movie last weekend.  But in the face of a critical mauling, what did I actually think of it?   Beware, as I'm not going to be shy about spoilers in the following discussion. Well, in a nutshell, I enjoyed... Continue Reading →

War of the Green Lanterns – May

Ok, still playing catch up here, but thankfully the last part of War of the Green Lanterns has been pushed back to July giving me a chance. However, despite this, I can't help but have a problem with the entire GL main line of books skipping a month, especially when we're only one issue from... Continue Reading →

Emerald Warriors #9

After two issues I would describe as incredibly enjoyable, but not really packing many surprises, Peter Tomasi gets some very nice stuff to play with. While Kyle and John are still struggling with their rings, Hal and Guy quickly take charge to cover their escape to the lower-levels of Oa. To an extent it could... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern August Solicits

The August solicits for DC are now out, and the Green Lantern ones bring a few surprises. Most importantly, is the appearance of Kyle Rayner on the cover of Green Lantern Corps.  His absence in the previous months solicits had not gone unnoticed, leading to the popular theory that Kyle was the Green Lantern that...

Green Lantern #65/Green Lantern Corps #59

Fresh from the events in Emerald Warriors, Green Lantern finds the now powerless Hal and Guy wandering the frozen wastes of their emergency planet. As Hal restates their need to keep their rings off to avoid Parallax's influence (presumably for anyone who didn't read Emerald Warriors, in which case those people must be really, really...
