    As dumb as that cover is

    What no stripper wear?

    That's not super ish at all! I jest, I jest.

    But considering all the crap that went on about the Catwoman cover with her bending as she did, anyone going to make an issue of Kyle there who seems almost as bad?

    Hell they're all kinda doing some spinal cord bending posing but since when do outrage about guys doing that ever happen huh.

    Kyle is the worst of the lot. I barely even notice the others honestly, even Carol.

    He reminds me of those parody images where all the men are drawn in super-sexy twisty poses like the women to highlight how dumb it actually is.

    I'm going to be embarrassed to buy it, but... Atrocitus, Arkillo, Saint Walker and Larfleeze are on it.

    Well March isn't doing the interior

    just that cover

  • Golden YakGolden Yak Burnished Bovine The PIT, level 26Registered User regular
    Cover's bad enough - I go to the shop in a group. People I know will see me buy this, aigh.

    Anyway, GL #10 - A promise of the Indigo Tribe's freakiness being all worthwhile, and a great line from Hal to Sinestro.

    "Fear isn't the answer."

    And an ominous development...

    I guess we'll see what happens next arc.

    Green Lantern Corps #10 was boring and overwritten! Really losing faith in Tomasi over here.

  • TexiKenTexiKen Oh, no. And that's that.Registered User regular
    It really says something about the character when stories centered around John are constantly boring, compared to Tomasi's other books and even when it was a Guy centric title.

    Nah. I'm gonna say that tomasi doesn't have a handle on the character.

  • GrifterGrifter TorontoSuper Moderator, Moderator mod
    John gets written very stiffly these days. It seems that everyone concentrates on him being an ex-military guy who really likes architecture rather than his radical "Damn the man" attitude that he was introduced with back in the day.

  • ArrynArryn Ask not the Innkeeper For destiny is thy name!Registered User regular
    CBR has a preview of New Guardians #10 up, here. I really hope the Blue Lantern Corps makes it, I like those guys more each time I see them.

    in non-Marvel NOW news...
    This October, the DC Universe must prepare for the Rise of the Third Army.

    The publisher's next major crossover event, following in the steps of June's Batman-based"Night of the Owls" storyline which spanned virtually all of the Bat-related titles will take place in the Green Lantern titles. "Rise of Third Army" features the Guardians' latest attempt at bringing law and order to the universe, and their first objective is to eliminate Lanterns of any color. The crossover, announced this morning on DC's blog The Source, features four interlocking covers by current "Aquaman" artist Ivan Reis. Interestingly enough, while the mysterious new Green Lantern is featured front and center along with all the major players from throughout the Corps, neither Hal Jordan nor Sinestro are anywhere to be found.

    Longtime Green Lantern architect Geoff Johns told the Source, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely--and the Guardians time is finally here. The Lantern titles spent the first year of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 re-establishing themselves, but it all comes back together with year 2 starting with GREEN LANTERN #0 and leading into October's #13's - which share an amazing cover by Ivan Reis. In October, the Guardians' Third Army rises to replace the Green Lantern Corps - but how is horrifying and why will change the Guardians and their ancient mission forever. As we discover what the Third Army actually means, our strongest Lanterns are targeted for absolute destruction. From Atrocitus to Guy Gardner to our newest Green Lantern from Earth - who may have been wrongly chosen - all their darkest secrets and failures will come to light. What is Sinestro's ultimate fate? Who is this new Green Lantern and why was he chosen? What is the Third Army? What with Atrocitus sacrifice to take on the Guardians? What will Larfleeze give up to find the one thing he wants? What happens to Guy Gardner when he's targeted after Hal Jordan? And, most importantly, who is the First Lantern?"

    "The Guardians and the Third Army want to break the Green Lantern Corps -- and they've now got their sights on Guy Gardner and John Stewart," "Green Lantern Corps" writer Peter Tomasi added. The question is not IF the Guardians can accomplish their mission, but how horribly will they shatter our ringslingers’ lives!"

    Meanwhile, "Green Lantern: The New Guardians" writer Tony Bedard filled in the Source on what awaits Kyle Rayner and his multi-hued allies. "Kyle Rayner has gathered a team of Lanterns from all seven colors of the spectrum. As the Third Army strikes, Kyle must combine all seven shades of power within himself. A bigger and badder lineup of New Guardians will push Kyle to become our secret weapon against the onslaught of the Third Army."

    And "Red Lanterns" writer Peter Milligan assures fans that Atrocitus and his crimson minions will be stepping into the mix in a major way as well. "The Red Lanterns are continuing their mission to bring bloody vengeance to an unjust world when they run into (or are run into) a mysterious enemy with no mouth and a curious resistance to death. One Red Lantern succumbs to this new adversary, while Atrocitus finds a way to fight back – which entails returning to a place of great pain and associating with an ancient nemesis."

    "Rise of the Third Army" kicks off October 3 in "Green Lantern" #13.

    I'm down with Carol's new costume.

    That said, I bet Hal and Sinestro are undercover and this will all end up with both coming back to do things that are awesome and save the day. Cause Johns loves Sinestro and Hal. In that order.

    It doesn't feel very different from War of the Green Lanterns to me yet. Hoping this is the final Lanterns fighting other Lanterns and/or Guardians event (which feel like they've been going endlessly since Sinestro Corps War five years ago).

    let's do something else.

    edit: interesting that Rankorr isn't featured on the Red Lanterns section of that cover.

    Guessing the Third Army is the Guardians' replacement for the Green Lanterns

  • Golden YakGolden Yak Burnished Bovine The PIT, level 26Registered User regular
    Yeah, they've been building up to this for a while.

    Also guessing that's them in the background of the cover-poster. More monster-y than I would have thought. Guess it leaves no room for doubt that this is a bad thing.

  • TairuTairu Registered User regular
    I want that cover to be the reality of the crossover

    More specifically, I want the Guardians to decide that they should all become big Andross heads, convinced that it is a good idea for the universe

    That seems in character

    Isn't it weird that there's no Hal Jordan or Sinestro on that cover?

  • RansRans Registered User regular
    Not really, they're playing up the mystery of what happens at the end of GL Annual #1 and continues into GL #0.

  • RansRans Registered User regular
    I'm guessing that at the end of GL Annual #1 it appears that Black Hand has killed Hal and Sinestro, when in reality they have really faked their deaths as they have come into some new information about the Guardians and the Third Army. Hal and Sinestro go to ground with the Indigos to figure out the strategy that Abin Sur had planned out all those years ago about how to stop the Guardians.

    The new earth GL is a wildcard. Not sure where he fits in.

  • GrifterGrifter TorontoSuper Moderator, Moderator mod
    That's the other thing. Seems odd to add another Earth GL at this point. Maybe to replace somebody they're going to kill off?

    He'll replace Sinestro, who is technically the GL for the sector I believe. Hal and Sinestro are probably not dead, but they may not be GLs during this.

    If he's replacing Sinesto then wouldn't Sinestro have to die or somehow give up the ring? And since he's physically unable to remove the ring, he'd probably have to die. Wouldn't be the first time.

    So yay. Really liked GL TAS.

    He's voiced by fucking Deidrich Bader, and the big bad for the season is the Anti-Monitor.

    I'm going to have to buy a new ceiling, because I just jumped through mine!

    yeah that's really awesome.

    also, fuck the bowl cut

  • TexiKenTexiKen Oh, no. And that's that.Registered User regular
    He looks like Mr. Incredible, because that's who Guy is.

    And that screen looks a lot better in terms of animation than what I've seen of the first seasons.

    Hopefully the season 2 finale will have the Anti-Monitor attacking earth and in order to fight back they have to recruit a couple more earth lanterns (for some reason). C'mon John and Kyle!

    It'd be cool if they introduced some non GL heroes, but it probably won't happen.

    I have an undying dream to eventually see Crisis on Infinite Earths play out on a TV series.

  • CokomonCokomon Registered User regular
    Well, some Thanagarians showed up in an episode, but no Hawkman.

    If there's one thing I've seen that all DC shows have in common, it's that they tend to start out with a couple characters, and then once the show's well established, they go absolutely crazy-flakes with them.

    "Justice League? Yeah, a handful of regular heroes, plus Lex Luthor and a random villain every other week! Easy!"

    Few seasons in and JLU, 2-3 new faces every episode, huge crowds of heroes and villains, hundreds of characters by the end of it.

    Young Justice was the same way. "Robin, Superboy, a couple others, and a random villain every week! No problem!"

    Season 2 there's like thirty members now.

    So when it comes to lots of heroes in GLTAS, things are trending positively, is what I'm trying to say.

    I've found the build up for this "Third Army" story to be a lot more intriguing than most of the recent mega-events in the GL books. Including Blackest Night.

  • RansRans Registered User regular
    and according to Johns, Rise of the Third Army isn't even the real event. Apparently it's a prologue event that sets up the really real event that follows it. I don't know what that means!
