It all begins here…again…for maybe the third time, I stopped counting.
Yes, Just One of the Guys is entering a new era in the comics we’re covering. The spectacular Ron Marz run on the book has ended, but before we head into the Judd Winick era, we have to sit through a couple of stories penned by Jay Faerber. And in issue 126 of Green Lantern, Mr. Faerber brings us a tale of hostage rescue and illegal experimentation on supervillains. I say supervillains, but honestly it’s pretty much the d-listers with Typhoon and Sonar being the stand outs. But is this just another filler issue that will make me throw the book down in disgust? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Plus we’re taking a look at the second Green Lantern 80 Page Giant. And this time, it’s not filled with inventory crap. In fact, the stories, which team Kyle with various heroes from the DCU, are really pretty good. Plus I’ve been fortunate enough to wrangle the best podcasters on the internet to join me in covering this book. You’ll hear such luminaries as Rob Kelly, Andrew Leyland, Stephen Lacey, W. Blaine Dowler, Paul Spataro, Dave Walker, J. David Weter, Micheal Leyland, Flava Flav, Steve and Edie, the magic of Doug Henning, former U.N. Secretary Boutros Boutros-Ghali, and Mummenschanz! So grab a refreshing beverage and get ready to be amazed at how much better all these people are at podcasting than your host.
