It’s time once again for another episode of Just One of the Guys, the show that’s looking at the Green Lantern comics from the late 1980’s until the early 2000’s. And in this issue, we’re covering Green Lantern #128, the last of the fill-in issues written by Jay Faerber. But even though that should fill a normal reader with concern, let me tell you, it shouldn’t, as this is a incredibly fun romp in the lines of 80’s action movies like Lethal Weapon. Except substituting Green Lantern and Arsenal for Murtaugh and Riggs. Jokes about substance abuse abound!
Plus, in our second book, we take a look at another 80’s action movie icon, the Aliens. In Green Lantern Versus Aliens #1, Hal Jordan and a group of the Corps finest are set to a planet that is having a little xenomorph problem, and Hal comes up with a stunning idea to take care of them…he has the Corpsmen transport them all to Mogo to live in peace and harmony. Which would be fine until a space ship crash lands on Mogo. Way to go, Hal…way to go. But since this book deals with a horror icon (the Aliens, not Arsenal’s haircut), I’ve got an extremely special guest to accompany me on the show. He is fifty percent of the Two True Freaks and the man who gave me my first shot at podcasting, Mr. Chris Honeywell. So basically I get Chris to read TWO Goddam Super Hero Comics! Huzzah! So unless you want to share some chili with Oliver Queen (and not that way, you pervs!), I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and get to listening!
