Happy Halloween, dear listeners, and welcome to a SPOOOOKY episode of Just One of the Guys: A Green Lantern Podcast. Today on this eerie episode, I’m taking a look at issue 137 of Green Lantern with a terrifying tale of…well, a young boy coming to terms with his sexual identity. After an awkward run in with his boss, Kyle Rayner, young Terry Berg comes out as gay…or Kyle figures out he’s gay and goes to talk to Terry about why that’s not a bad thing at all. So I guess the issue isn’t spooky at all, unless you discount the inclusion of Feast art director Andre Choi.
But in Green Lantern/Green Lantern #1 there’s got to be some spookiness as Kyle Rayner Green Lantern teams up with Alex DeWitt Green Lantern…because in either one’s reality the other is dead. So one of them has to be a ghost, or a figment of the other’s imagination…or something else weird. Maybe it’s not as spooky as I’d like it to be. Oh well. Regardless, unless you want to get yelled at by an effeminate art director for mistaking his sexual orientation, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
