Welcome back everyone to episode #139 of Just One of the Guys: A Green Lantern Podcast, the show bold enough to tackle the heavy issues through not so subtle changes in a comic book. For instance, in Green Lantern #139, we’ve got a story about terrorism that bluntly mirrors the events going on between the Israelis and the Palestinians…if you leave out the whole Ark of the Coveneant thing giving people demonic superpowers. It’s another MESSAGE ISSUE that might not have too happy an ending.
Plus we’re also covering the Elseworlds story 1001 Emerald Nights where the Green Lantern characters of Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner are thrust into the Arabic tale of Scheherazade and her attempts to not get killed by regaling a prince with fanciful stories. And coming along on this episode to cover these books is first time podcaster, Mr Robert Willing, a man who loves the Elseworlds stories so much he’s working on a podcast about them…coming soon! So unless you want to end up like one of Ibn Rayner’s former concubines, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
