Green Lantern Corps
To many writers in comics today, villains are the most interesting people, as Bugs Bunny likes to say. In the past, I’ve talked about how the Joker has his own set of fans, not to mention Luthor. Well, one of the comics creators who can successfully understand the minds of villains in both the Marvel and DC universes is Cullen Bunn, who recently started up his Magneto series with the House of Ideas, and is now giving DC their own baddie-centric comic!
Press Release Project: Rooftop is proud to announce their next redesign contest, spotlighting on the DC Entertainment hero Green Lantern. Originally created back in 1940 by John Broome, Gil Kane, Bill Finger and Martin Nodell, Green Lantern has become one of the biggest super-heroes in comic books. And now Project: Rooftop is putting out the call for artists around the world to submit their own renditions of the hero to be spotlighted on Project: Rooftop’s website and be reviewed by the P:R staff as well as long-time Green Lantern writer Ron Marz and in-demand artist/designer James White.
News broke earlier this week that Joshua Hale Fialkov would be leaving “Green Lantern Corps” and “Red Lanterns” but the writer has spoken and it has led to speculation by some on the Internet on the nature of his departure.

Though today’s Hero History entrant wasn’t the first black superhero (that place is held by The Black Panther, circa 1966) nor the first African-American character to headline his own book (that honor goes to Dell Comics’ Lobo, a cowboy type who will probably make for a fine Retro Review soon enough), but John Stewart predates either Luke Cage
The recent announcement of Geoff Johns leaving the Green Lantern title sparked two lines of thought in my head: First, while fans will miss his work, the new-and-different take that he brought to the tales of Hal Jordan and his alien blue masters now comprises nearly a decade of stories, and successfully brought the character of Green Lantern back to prominence. (Heck, he even managed to amicably settle the Hal/Kyle fan wars by making EACH of them the most important Green Lantern, albeit for different timeframes.) The second thing that occurred to me was, I admit, steeped in cynicism and
Or – “A Key Bronze Age First Appearance Of A Big-Time Fan Favorite…” Geoff Johns is a talented writer, and he has a knack for bringing characters to life in new and different ways, making them feel fresh and iconic at the same time. Sometimes, though, it’s interesting to go back to the beginnings and see how some of our favorites started out, like when the episodes of ‘Good Morning, Mrs. Bliss’ end up in ‘Saved By The Bell’ rotation. Luckily, for everyone involved, there’s a lot less Mr. Belding here…
DC’s zero issues boast that they allow an easy access point for a new reader. That claim is put to the test in Major Spoiler’s review of Green Lantern Corps #0. Will this book leave you wanting more tales of the Lanterns, or is it a tale better left alone? Read on, faithful Spoilerites…
With four Green Lanterns coming from our planet, and 7200 GL’s across the universe, there are plenty of stories to be told. So, who gets to take center stage for this run? Find out after the jump…
I got a chance to play Rise of the Manhunters, the Green Lantern movie tie-in game for X-Box 360. Now I’ve played some superhero games in the past that didn’t live up to the character they were trying to recreate, so I went in with a lot of expectations (some might say demands) for the game. Here’s a list of specific (and largely unreasonable) things I wanted out of this video-type-game
Those crazy WWE superstars have arranged themselves into the emotional spectrum corps from the last major arcs of Green Lantern. This was definitely not something I expected to see when I went in looking for pictures of Kelly Kelly this morning. Via WWE
