It’s the end of an era…again.
Yes, once again we’ve reached a milestone here at Just One of the Guys, as with this episode we bid farewell to Ron Marz as the main writer on the book. Ever since he took over in issue number 48, Marz has done a stellar job a making Kyle Rayner, an entirely new character into one of the most interesting heroes in the modern day DC Universe. And with issue 125, Marz says his goodbyes. Is the story a fitting ending to the Ron Marz era on Green Lantern? You’ll just have to listen to find out!
Plus we’re also going to cover Green Lantern 80 Page Giant #1, an “inventory-tastic” issue that tells tales of all of the Green Lanterns of Earth; from Guy to Kyle, Alan to John, Hal and even G’nort, all get their own story in this book. The sad truth is…these aren’t really very good. I mean, even the Beau Smith penned one feels shoehorned into being about Guy as a Green Lantern rather than guy as Warrior. Plus the internet meme of #GoAwayBenRaab is introduced as we get a look at stories yet to come. Winick better be a LOT better than this. But to ease me through the pain of this issue, I’ve got my good friend and Guy Gardner fan, Thomas Deja (co-host of Better in the Dark) along for the ride. So unless you want to have your head crushed by the thighs of a Mitch Byrd female, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
