The dead are rising.
So, that's a thing, right?
Anyway here we continue.
Green Lantern: Blackest Night Thread #2
At this point we're going to see that Johns KNEW EXACTLY (more or less) how he was going to end his run.
No, but it sounds like something to put on a bucket list.
Johns knew what he wanted to do by the time Blackest Night rolled around.
wherein these crazy kids
Read through BN/BD/War of the GL last week... and things just seem to roll right into stuff he did for his last arcs. Just... moved along.
Little bits piece by piece.
Johns was always good at seeding.
LET COMPASSION HEAL YOUR FAULTS!
wherein it's time to create a NEW TEAM
You know there's a design flaw here somewhere.
Hey OP... of the JSA threads... (hah) sorry that this is runnin' along so well.
But hope you have a good read.
Sinestro is a man of complex emotions.
Very true, Sinestro.
And oooh Abin.
Dayum that is cold Sinestro
Can we, like, keep it all copacetic?
It'll be a while before we return to Korugar.
Y'know, the Black Lanterns are certainly a credible and deadly threat, but more than anything I just want them to stop talking. For all their guilt tripping, they are surprisingly annoying.
KEEP ON RUNNING!
They remind me of Deadites. Man I love the Deadites of the first movie.
wherein ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!
Back to Barry's time to shine.
THAT IS SO NOT GOOD
Scarecrow you lucky son of a bitch.
Great speech Barry.
But what exactly is the plan here?
In terms of seeds, they really do flow pretty well into each other. Man.
Just keep hitting until something works.
This fucking page.
They didn't know.
Keep your emotions complex!
YES. It's what I've been doing for the last two months or so.
Honestly, I find Johns' New 52 stuff a really well done continuation of several key seeds.
But, just to note, I won't be doing NG, RL, or GLC outside of crossovers when we hit New 52.
And I may not do RL at all.
wherein meet the new guardians
Remember that bit about the orange one.
That's fine. All of those are boring compared to the main title. Tomasi dropped the ball during new 52 for some reason. The rest just didn't live up the hype. Was really looking forward to NG but that went nowhere fast.
>I never learned to read
Good, just want to get that out there before people start asking.
Really Johns' New 52 stuff is a STRAIGHT SHOT to the ending.
Atrocitus can even buzzkill talking about dead families.
THE ORIGINAL SKITTLES SQUAD!
wherein things are changing
Kilowog, bless ya, but you got really lucky this time.
wherein IT IS TIME... sorta morphin' time?
Yeah, the OG Skittles were real rad.
Yeah... but his greed is just so avaricious.
Those two smaller panels are my favorite cliffhanger so far.
wherein well, the cover says it all.
And Kryb is just left there.
That is too good. Those crazy kids.
Yeah, you missed the boat on that John...
Whatever happened to Mera and Ray?
Small lines like that always get me.
Go Boston, Go!
wherein AWWW YEAHHH and this is the last issue of thread 2
Sinestro's got a point.
Get to it Hal.
And new song
A lot Mera. A lot.
Also, yay more OG Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
There's hope. Always hope.
Time to save the world.
YES! I have been waiting for this the whole time!
>There is no one on this planet who loves it more than Wonder Woman
Now if only Geoff actually remembered this bit every now and then...
