>Beware Your Fears Made Into Light...
It's a bit earlier than that time of the week. /co/.
But we're going to be running through it all anyway.
And in good time for October as well, spooks and all.
So here we go, the first big break of the Johns Era GL...
Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War
And here we go... with ol thin-stache himself...
That's the stuff.
Strong as Sinestro was aces... but they gave him nothing to do.
Glad to have you on board!
I really, really love Forever Evil too
Oh yeah... this is it...
I dunno. Are you anxiously hoping they announce an omnibus soon?
I'm staunchly waiting for an omni. FE was better than the sum of it's parts. So all of the parts need to be in order before I plunk down the cash.
Yeah. Nice one Guy.
That's a sad story, Kyle.
I heard that you can spot Bizarro Hal somewhere in this event.
Let's keep an eye out.
Gosh dangit... haha
Dropped left and right
Then let's DEFINITELY keep an eye out.
The ONLY TIME I will be doing ONLY JOHNS is when we hit NEW 52.
Because when we reach that it's just a hassle, so only Johns then.
Sweet, been meaning to re-read Tomasi's GLC plus the stuff I missed when I stopped reading. Maybe this'll get me back into GL.
Always thought Tomasi and Patrick Gleason's GLC were understated. Sure Johns was in the reins with GL, but GLC was a great freaking book.
It really is. I've been running GLC alongside GL for the past couple weeks.
The bottom panel has been my mental image for the Sinestro Corps ever since I read it years ago. Too bad I'll never see it adapted for a movie.
>To instill FEAR
>Is to instill ORDER
Chill erry tiem
Also Godhead is looking pretty awesome so far.
Holy hell... fucking hell.
I'm not going to comment on Godhead since I found the start pretty meh.
I got one AGES AGO... back when I storytimed my Forever Evil edit.
Yeah, it feels just the right scale for a truly epic event it's trying to portray. Hopefully it won't shit itself
>90's Rayner is best Rayner.
Quoted for truth
I like green parallax more, but Sinestro's shiny gold parallax is nice too
>Love that it's a nod to his first costume though. 90's Rayner is best Rayner.
I'm more partial to the gay biker outfit but his first one was pretty sweet
And for a small story...
A lot of parts just felt very janky, New Gods are too serious for my tastes. and while they shared a lot of page space... there NEEDS to be an actual Orion/Lightray moment.
Only really looking forward to Forever People.
Yes. Doing this right.
I love all the Replacement Supermen.
>Yeah, it feels just the right scale for a truly epic event it's trying to portray. Hopefully it won't shit itself
I'm curious what it's going to be ABOUT now since they already got all the rings, I wasn't expecting that to happen
also I'm kind of worried for Hal
Nigga, Rayner is Peter Parker with a power ring.
Shit, people say Asami is suffering, they don't know shit about my boy Kyle.
Sinestro's shiny gold/yellow Parallax was much better, yes.
I really like all of Kyle's outfits. They're really good and usually fit his character pretty damn well. Think I may like his third one the best though, idk.
For me it's BIBBO AND ERADICATOR ALL THE WAY.
Also, Superboy Prime ISN'T a Replacement Superman. 90's Superboy was.
Yes, yes he will.
>A lot of parts just felt very janky, New Gods are too serious for my tastes.
I guess I can understand this. I'm probably going to pick up a floppy of the first issue though. dat art
Cute New Gods doing cute New things?
wherein there's a blowback
Man... those five could have been a team book.
I love the New Gods, I have the four omnibuses... but this is such a disparity and it's just.... no.
I say... no. I think he's a giant bore.
>but this is such a disparity and it's just.... no.
It's just an Imaginary Story, Dave
>whacky ol' uncle Superman who is evil cybrog
I still like the "Hal created the fearbug during Zero Hour" theory
Yeah. And it's one that I don't care for... at all.
Except for Forever People. Didio/Giffen are ON IT.
Oh hey, it's GREEN MAN behind Hal!
Yes, that's his name.
It's hilarious how Laira's hotness got toned down by a lot and Boodika changed from a moderately unattractive musclegirl to a generic pink alien girl
That's all they can do...
That ruins the fun.
That's just....really mean.
Really really really mean.
wherein the story of Korugar begins anew.
I'm interested in how much different this story would have been if they kept the "Parallax possesses John and Guy too" angle
I'm honestly surprised that she's still alive and relevant in the nu52. I think the only other prominent SC still alive after all this besides her and Sinestro is Arkillo
>I'm honestly surprised that she's still alive and relevant in the nu52. I think the only other prominent SC still alive after all this besides her and Sinestro is Arkillo
I'm surprised she managed to get even hotter, dayum
Bad day bad day bad day!
Robo's made of tougher stuff.
For those of you who missed the last thread and are wondering what the fuck happened here, Green Man was temporarily infected with Yellow mind control spores and tried to kill Stel shortly before the Sinestro Corps War started.
Yesssss. I remember always wanting to see Sinestro as the badass that he was. I always hated him as just yet another typical supervillain more or less with his appearances in the DCAU and other shows since he always had so much potential.
So glad Johns did this.
Wait when did they do that?
Korugar, am I right?
wherein this goes from bad to worse
Alright, slight intermission... but I'll be back and then we'll run through the rest ASAP.
Yeah as much as I love this event, the sometimes lack of consistency bugs the fucking hell out of me.
Like, Ranx looks nothing like he does everywhere else here.
Damn I would hit that pretty hard, not gonna lie.
Jesus fucking Christ, what an ugly bitch.
According to the trades Johns was going to have Guy and John here possessed by Parallax. He eventually decided that "Parallax possession should be special" and that it would detract from Kyle getting possessed. So kudos to Geoff for deciding not to do something that seemed cool for once.
Hakaan& Jack Chance are killed Lairabecomes a Red Lantern the dies Boodikabecomes an Alpha, goes full facist, and then dies
He specifically chooses this subset of Lantern from 90s for some reason to do horrible things to
First Flight was one helluva ride
That shit-tier shading ruins a lot of the sexiness of Lyssa-Lyssa-sensei
>He specifically chooses this subset of Lantern from 90s for some reason to do horrible things to
but he also brought them all back to begin with since most of them were considered dead or absent and even though bad stuff happened to them it didn't really come off like a personal vendetta to me
No shit? Huh, that makes sense.
>Lairabecomes a Red Lantern the dies
See, I actually really liked her so that happening always bugged the fucking hell out of me.
Did make for some good-ish drama though, not gonna lie.
>First Flight was one helluva ride
It was okay. Liked some parts of it, but it didn't wow me. Fight scene at the end was good though.
wherein it tolls and tolls
I remember a younger niave me. Thinking things could not possibly get worse for the gl's...
then this panel...this fucking panel. I remember actually saying OH SHIT out loud and getting slapped by my mom.
still gets me.
wherein it all hits home
Because the more "real" in your mind the thing you're making is, the tougher the construct will be. This is why John's constructs take slightly longer to make but he imagines every gear so they work far better.
wherein we enter the mind of Kyle Rayner
wherein back into the fray
