Green Lantern Corps
Or – “Awright, Ya Poozers!” I’ve been a fan of Kilowog since his first appearance (which, for those who aren’t aware, was AFTER the Crisis on Infinite Earths, when the GLC was just seven guys in California) and I’ve always enjoyed his antics. In recent years, he’s become an amalgam of pig, squid and R. Lee Ermy in ‘Full Metal Jacket,’ and has even cheated death itself. Leading up to the big film debut, Kilowog gets his own one-shot, and I have to say: It’s about time.
With the Green Lantern movie about to hit theaters, Warner Bros. has released the latest in its direct to DVD (or Blu-Ray combo pack) movie from DC Comics. Like Batman: Gotham Knight, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (see what they did there), presents and anthology of tales focusing on the intergalactic police force.
DC Comics has announced that immediately following the War of the Green Lanterns, the company will launch the first chapter of War of the Green Lanterns: Aftermath. Wow… didn’t see that coming… The two-part event will be written by Tony Bedard, with art by Miguel Sepulveda. GREEN LANTERN CORPS writer Tony Bedard explores the shocking consequences the war had on the Corps and its central members. War of the Green Lanterns: Aftermath lands in stores in July. via The Source
Or – “Why The Best Leaders Aren’t Always Obvious…” I’m a firm believer that it’s never a good idea to try and fully apply real world thought processes to the adventures of our four-color imaginary friends. (Faithful Spoilerites who pay attention will note that I break virtually all of my rules anyway, on a shockingly regular basis.) Recent noise out of Marvel Comics seems to indicate that a coming storyline will deal with a split in ranks the X-Men, leading to two factions, one of which will be led by Wolverine. The ridiculousness of Wolverine leading anything brought me to
The next DC animated movie from Warner Bros. happens to be Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, an anthology tale featuring some of your favorite GLs. Warner just released the first trailer for the movie, and it doesn’t look half bad.
Apparently there is are a large number of people on eBay that sell pre-production action figures long before the Average Joe can get their grubby hands on them. There is an auction currently going on that features the six inch version of Tomar Re from the upcoming Green Lantern movie. via Toy News International
DC has released a sneak peek of Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #1 that arrives in stores on August 11, 2010. Take the jump for a look at Guy Gardner’s secret mission for Atrocitus.
Or – “And Seriously, Don’t Even Get Me Started On All The Buckys!” Day two of the Major Spoilers Star-Spangled Weekend™, I’m freshly sunburnt from swimming, but still Ready, Willing and Able (Attorneys At Law?) to go over some of the high-points of last month’s comic book output. The Justice League of America, all-American Tony Stark and the styling of verdant Lanterns and Hornets take center stage as our Rapid-Fire Reviews continue!
Or – “Named For The Roman God Martius, God Of War…” Not to be confused with famed Martian general Marvin, whose computers are so complex and naughty… Traditionally, this month has signaled the beginning of the season of military campaigns, and also the time when college basketball generals lead their troops unto the field of battle. For me, working in small-market TV for as long as I did, it’s a month which signals mighty pains in the butt, which explains why this is technically the FEBRUARY edition of RFR. We apologize for the inconvenience… Better to just press on.
Yup, it’s The Anti-Monitor all gussied up in his Black Lantern garb ready to wreck havoc on the universe… AGAIN! The art is by Adam Schlagman and makes it into our Art Appreciation Moment of the day. via The Source
Or – “Don’t You Know What’s Goin’ On Out There? This Is No Sunday School Picnic!” Nekron’s legion of undead minions has cut a swath of lethal force across the universe, while the Guardians of the Universe (who are mostly to blame for all this) have been taken out by one of their own.Â The only chance that the universe has right now are a few ring-slinging poozers who aren’t going down easy…Â I wish I could bet on them winning.
