You know, doing a show like JUST ONE OF THE GUYS: A GREEN LANTERN PODCAST can really be a chore sometimes. Especially when one of the books that you have to cover (because it ties in with later books) is Green Lantern:The Last Will and Testament of Hal Jordan. Mostly because this book is all about the adventures of a drunken, down on his luck Tom…<grumblemutter> “Pieface”…Kalmaku having to take care of Hal’s never before seen illegitimate son Martin while he is on the run from a murderous, scythe wielding, rune covered ebon entity known as…THE DARK LANTERN!!! And when you find out the surprise ending, your “WTF Meter” should be off the charts.
Luckily we make up for all of the not so good with a great issue of Green Lantern. In issue 148, we get to see Jenny get her groove back as she beats up on nineties grunge reject Sonar, dances the night away with Kyle, John and Merayn, and receives her Starheart energy powers courtesy of Kyle being a near god-like entity, Ion. Plus there’s some nice art from fill in artist, Brandon Badeux, which helps as well. So unless you want me to reveal the super secret, Earth shatting (and no, that’s not a typo) ending, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and get to listening!
