Oh, who am I kidding, I’ve beaten that horse into a fine paste. It’s just another outstanding episode of Just One of the Guys. But there is an actual change going on. This begins the major comic debut of writer Judd Winick! Yes, the man who made his career starring on MTV’s The Real World is now helming Green Lantern. And how is his debut story? Well there’s some good (the introduction of a strong supporting character in Terry Long) and some bad (the introduction of the worst gay stereotpye ever to grace the four color medium, Rawhide Kid’s revamp included). But overall it’s a good beginning to a new era in Green Lantern
Plus we take a look at the second issue of Green Lantern versus Aliens. After Hal had the brilliant idea of putting a horde of xenomorphs on the living planet Mogo, Kyle Rayner is tasked a cleaning up his mess. But he won’t have to do it alone, as he’s joined by some pretty famous former Lanterns who feel a bit responsible for their actions. It’s a great story with some great art by Rick Leonardi. And in addition to all of that, I’m joined by another stellar guest host in the guise of Mr. Thomas Deja (Better in the Dark) to reassure me that Winick won’t completely screw up Guy Gardner’s character…So, unless you want to have Andre Choi sexually harrass you, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and get to listening!
