    The writing on that pirate parchment seemed less "my dastardly deeds were foiled" and more "oh my god I'm so scared what they're doing isn't right" which seemed to tap into the human element of Black Hand and not the necrophilia part.

    Agent Orange was mostly a bummer because it was really short and therefore super expensive as a trade, and the plot was super insubstantial.

    Edit: The new GLC is wicked sweet, btw, and I think Bedard is going to rock it.

    Did they just put three issues into a Hardcover?

    I can see rationalizing an evil act as compassionate, but I think it'd be hard to actually paint compassion in a negative light.

    Unless this was a Mr. A story.

    There was that short story where Indigo-1 suffocates a Green Lantern with his own power.

    That was pretty fucking dark.

    Presumably, he would've died much more slowly from his wounds otherwise, but still... just teleport him to a hospital or something.

    I could see them being villains if, say, they're confronted with a threat so terrible they don't think anything can stop it, and that it might be kinder to kill everyone themselves first.

    Do lanterns feed on brain power or something? Because I swear, it sounds like every lantern corps is populated by morons.

    To be fair, the main GL book has always been hardcover first, and the wait has always been a year between.

    I wouldn't get on the book until Sinestro Corps was in softcover, and that didn't happen until last summer just a few weeks before Blackest Night started.

    With Tony Bedard as the new writer, it's possible that GLC could go back to softcover again, but maybe unlikely with GL being everything to DC right now.

    Tyler Kirkham new GLC artist

    His art isn't really bad, it's just very flat. Sometimes he was impressive on UFF, sometimes not. And those rumors of DC needing Image-like talent to help out bigger names seems to be coming true.

    I finally decided to see what all the fuss it about and start collecting the current GL and GLC trades. I already had Rebirth, Recharge, and both SCW trades along with the main BN story but I read the first Green Lantern trade yesterday and I really liked it. Despite it taking like years for DC to get both series out in trades (the Rage of the Red Lanterns trade is FINALLY coming out next week) they're still very affordable and well put together.

    They're around. I believe they are currently using the white lantern energy net created by Aliveman in Brightest Day (which for some reason isn't fading) to build a weapon. What with all the weaponeering they do...

    I'll be getting the Wanted: Hal Jordan and Rage of the Red Lanterns trades this Wednesday so then all I'll need is the Agent Orange hardcover to be fully caught up in the collections. I'm getting the Secret Origin books digitally (legally of course).

    Rage is really good,

    unfortunately, those other three stories are pretty weak.

    Should I be getting Green Lantern Corps as well? Or maybe just the trades after Sinestro Corps War? I'm mostly interested in finding out more about the other Lantern Corps and I know the Star Sapphires show up in GLC.

    I might as well get the first two GLC trades since they're really cheap. And after SCW there's only two more to get before Blackest Night.

    Oops actually there's the Emerald Eclipse hardcover before BN. Is that a really important story?

    It explains why the GLC are blindsided by the Black Lanterns, but it's a great story by itself. Gleason goes hella crazy with the art. V'ozz for life, yo.

    Argh there's no solicit for the trade yet. It's like DC prices all their trades pretty cheap but they take forever to come out.

    So whats the opinion on the movie costume.

    I'm kind of cranky it doesn't seem to have the black on it, honestly.

    I think it does, actually. It's just the lighting that makes it seem overly green.

    Look at the sinestro concept art. I figure Hal's has the same amount of black.

    So far I've read through the first three trades of GL (minus the Daniel Acuna-drawn Star Sapphire story which I'll read today) and so far I've enjoyed it. Having not read any GL books before this Johns does a good job explaining past continuity and making it relevant to the current story. I'll start reading GLC next week and I'll re-read SCW and finally get to Blackest Night.

    While I still prefer Cosmic Marvel, GL has it's own unique charm but then again I'm biased toward Marvel.
