    Man I gotta quarrel with that.

    It was a pretty decent comic but nothing more than that. No "omg" moments. Oh look the angry girl got a red ring. And the alpha lanterns are crazy, and the guardians are dicks. Nothing new or exciting.

    I love the comic, but someone should count the use of the word "Rage" in that issue.

    That would be like counting the use of the word fear in every issue of GL since v2. That's numbering in the thousands. Driving the point home that people are getting red rings that issue is to be expected. We're going to see this straight through till 2009 when the Black Lanterns try to extinguish the light.

    I'm already making my war of the light badge, but it's slow going. Something keeps being off about it.

    Anyway, it was a real shocker. Especially since I went back and read GL 25 and could swear that she's the blue-skinned female Red Lantern.

    You mean the blue-skinned female Blue Lantern?

    In the upper right-hand corner? It looked like the RL logo to me.

    I didn't even register the Blue Lantern until you mentioned it and I searched the page for a minute or two.

    You know even though I've seen that picture so many times, there is just so much going on in it that I never noticed

    So I'm going to go out on a limb and say that something bad happened to Atom Eve huh. Is it as bad as when all the Repli-Kate doubles got literally torn into pieces?

    well we really don't know anything about Red Lanterns yet aside than that they represent "rage" on the emotional spectrum. Last week's issue was the first appearance (aside from that splash page teaser) of the red rings.

    But I believe in an interview Johns said that the Red Lanterns are so consumed with rage that thier body's cannot contain it, so it bursts out of them.

    Not one of you said Dark Tower.

    I hate you all.

    The first issue was more of the same quality as the first series. I like that I feel like I've read something substantial after finishing an issue, especially with the background/legend supplements at the end.

    Is the paperback edition of the first series out and does it include that supplementary content? I flipped through the hardcover in a bookstore a while back and was disappointed to see it didn't.

    Apparently their power comes from their mouth, not from their hands. They're the M&M lanterns.

    So if red is rage and yellow is fear what's blue? (I have no GL knowledge)

    Now I must admit I'm not a DC guy, but all the love for the Sinestro War and now this stuff sounds really interesting.

    I did some more independant research, and found some more concept images of the new Lantern corps, they look great
    care_bears.jpg

    Hehe sorry, couldn't help myself. I'm sure plenty of people have made that joke already.

    Seriously now, can someone with no knowledge of or interest in the wider DC universe read and appreciate GL stuff just by itself, or will I end up needing to read other stuff just to keep on top of it all? And just as crucially, are they properly supported with trades because I don't read singles.

    I think you could read GL all on its own without any other DC comics. GLC and GL only seem to interact with each other really. Obviously GL's show up in other books, but they generally don't have anything to do with the storylines of GL and GLC.

    So, Kyle Rayner, what are the odds he'll defect to the Blue Lanterns on that note? They kind of laid it on thick in the SCW, yapping on about him and his hope every other issue.

    Or I could just be craaaazy.

    I have a feeling earth will have one Lantern per "good" color.

    Which consist of...Green, Blue, and Violet? Purple surely not, as it's been said that the far ends of the spectrum are the worst of all.

    I can't imagine any of them becoming one of the hippy (violet) lanterns.

    Of course, why would they give it away that early?

    Well, because some of the images have been used in later issues. Atrocitus' blood-soaked red lantern is the same image (or really, really close) to the one shown in GL 25 when the Guardians are telling Earth's GLs about the Blackest Night prophecy.

    There was something else like this that I noticed when I was making my new badge. But for the life of me I can't remember what it was.

    Sinestro War was completley self contained within the 2 GL books, you can read just those 2 series and get everything you need.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
