    this is looking pretty awesome so far. i also love the little JLA-like portraits of the cast on the title page.

    It just looks like that because I took one pic and duped it out over and over and over. Totally different.

    Re: the preview:
    Didn't Ganthet already stop being a Guardian when they threw him out? Did he start calling himself one again after founding the Blue Lanterns? I doubt the Guardians care about that, or that he's now stopped doing it.

    The book looks interesting, but I've forgotten - is Ganthet going to be in GLC or in the new Emerald Warriors book?

    maybe there is a power level thing with being a Guardian and the other Guardians will depower him before giving him a ring? and ganthet will be a main cast member in GLC along with Kyle and John.

    Ganthet still has his Blue Lantern Guardian wondertwin powers, right?

    Well he's a shapeshifter, so even in the pictures that he appears to be wearing clothing he probably isn't.

    I'm just joshin' anyway. I mean, here's my J'onn redesign I did about a year back. Dude's straight wearing beaded jewelry.

    Though if I can put on my nerd hat, J'onn's clothes are actually a Martian plant known as the Zook, a shapeshifting lifeform that responds to Martian telepathy, taking whatever form they want it to.

    Golden Yak! Thats pretty damned amazing. I can't believe you can bust them out that fast. I really like the piece with J'onn shapeshifting his arm, the white tattoo-ish things make it look really cool. Very zen looking Manhunter you've made.

    And Munch! That is a design right there.

    Hurm. I just threw this togethor using the power of a dry pen and an ancient version of photoshop before I came on here and saw those neato designs. Coat-thing should be longer.

    At the weekend when I (in theory) have more time I'ma bust out a bunch of redesigns because I appear to be in the mood, I'll maybe make a all purpose redesignin' thread for it. Since this thread is actually about Brightest Day. Yes.

    I like Jonn's Martian head. Course, I also like when he's John Jones, Martian Detective.

    Basically, I want either his martian or human side to be further developed in whatever future series he finds himself in.

    Serpents' martian looks like Yak's Jonn meets Millar's black Hulk, what with the medallion and fur coat and all.

    He should be made human because we are the master species of the universe, all will kneel before us.

    Let's pick a fight with the Guardians while we've got all the anti-Kryptonian stuff out, woot woot.

    Red Lanterns are the DCU Punishers.

    And thugs in the DCU seemingly miss a sitting cat point blank. Where's Krypto?

    edit: the ring is on his tail, that's clever.

    They're not missing the cat, the bullets are just doing absolutely nothing against the almost skin-tight energy field almost every Lantern projects around themselves.

    Take a closer look at the last panel and you'll notice the field around Dex-Starr

    Edit: And Atrocitus' hands for that matter

    It took three readings for me to realize that he isn't saying, "This kitty is full of rage because of humans like you."

    I think I like that better, really.

    That'd be cool, Endless. I like doing comic fan art, and I usually think it'd go better in this forum, since the art one seems mainly for original stuff.

    Hee hee, last panel, he's so fat and happy(angry).

    I've been looking forwards to this issue of GL. I want to know what the Red Lanterns are doing on Earth, if they've been to Ysmault and back since Blackest Night, or if they haven't left yet and this takes place before Atrocitus' meeting with
    Ganthet and Guy.

    pretty sure GL 54 takes place after GL 53 in terms of where atrocitus is. presumably glc 48 goes between those two.

    So in Generations Lost #2, Max Lord rewrote history so that

    Ted committed suicide

    and Ice tried to kill Guy (and this wasn't counting Blackest Night)

    and Fire was kicked out of Checkmate

    and Captain Atom got replaced by Magog as the military meta top-dog and he beat up a colonel and is facing court martial

    and he did nothing to Booster's reputation because no one thought anything of him to begin with (ouch low blow)

    Sort of a slow start to Bedard's run, but the Ganthet parts were enjoyable. Cool to see him forge his own battery (looks like a cross between an old Manhunter battery and Alan Scott's battery) and a ring. Nice to see a mention of Appa Ali Apsa. An error would be in John and Ganthet saying the buildings on Oa were a million years old since Oa was only fairly recently reconstructed from nothing, but with comic book logic it's not really that big of a deal.

    No one acknowledges Guy's absence and it doesn't look like John has been officially inducted into the honor guard yet. Jury's still out on Kyle's characterization as he was barely in it. Ardian Syaf's art was pretty good but I miss Gleason a lot.

    Not a brilliant start, but by no means a bad one.

    GL #54
    We finally get names for the entities with the best one being The Butcher for the rage entity. The midget collecting the entities caught up with Sodam Yat in Daxam's sun and freed him from Ion. Looks like Yat is back to being a normal GL and maybe he'll show up in Emerald Warriors? Also thinking Emerald Warriors will have something to do with the search for the entities as that seems to be the new purpose given to Atrocitus after his encounter with Ganthet and Guy.

    it's just what everyone other than Booster, Fire, Ice, and Captain Atom think

    Look it's not my fault TLB only goes to the LCS every trimester to pick up books and is so streets behind he confuses himself.

    But what was also mentioned at the end was that
    Jamie Reyes is being detected as Ted Kord by the OMACs, so maybe hope at the end of the series?

    Generation Lost was pretty much an issue of Giffen and Winick giving the most broad, vague explanation to explain away photographic/video evidence, events that spiraled out of Max's actions, etc. It wasn't bad, and the tease at the end is interesting. I loved Booster's face when Batman tells him that you-know-who killed himself. It was so hilariously overwrought.

    Oddly enough, I think I'm most excited to see who steps up as the team's new Rocket Red. I really like Dimitri, so I'm curious to see what kind of replacement will fill his shoes. I have to admit though, I'm not crazy about how Ice is being written. It might not fit the "modern" tone to depict her as cloyingly naive as she used to be, but she's coming off as kind of a jerk.

    I was thinking that was future Booster Gold, but come to think of it, shadowy guy did have a blue scarab.

    Honestly, I kind of think that everyone just forgot about that, or decided to go in a different direction from whatever they had planned.
