Welcome back everyone to the latest episode of JUST ONE OF THE GUYS: A GREEN LANTERN PODCAST, the best place to listen to a middle aged guy talk about comics from the 1990’s. And this time out we’re covering Green Lantern #151, the issue right after Kyle has given up his Ion powers to become Green Lantern again. Oh, and to get a spiffy new Jim Lee designed uniform. But all is not well with Kyle in the issue, as something is causing green constructs to terrorize the city, and only our emerald hero can take care of it.
Plus we’re going to take a look at a retelling of a Golden Age Green Lantern story with the prestige format book Green Lantern: Brightest Day/Blackest Night. In this issue we rediscover the origin of Solomon Grundy and slightly twist the tale to include a radical group of Nazi’s who are experimenting with a superweapon in Slaughter Swamp, Grundy’s stomping grounds. And only Green Lantern Alan Scott can save the day. It’s some golden age goodness mixed in with the then modern ring slinging. So unless you want to be a victim of the Geist Reich, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
