IT ALL BEGINS HERE!
Welcome back, dear listeners, to the first episode of Just One of the Guys where I am able to do what I set out to do with the podcast, to which you may query, “Not suck?” to which I would reply, “Shut up!” No, this time out, I’m actually going to be covering both the characters of Guy Gardner AND Kyle Rayner, who makes his debut as Green Lantern in this issue. Granted, it might not be the most auspicious start to his career (he fights a villain called Ohm that we never hear from again), but all the elements I’ve grown to love about the character are there, including his hot girlfriend Lara Croft! Wait, no…it’s actually Alex DeWitt. Sorry, the clothing threw me off.
And speaking of clothing, there’s precious little of it over in the Guy Gardner issue, and what there is is kind of embarassing, including Guy’s ring generated homage to Blue Beetle’s armor and Arisia’s “hooker Jem” outfit. It’s truly, truly, TRULY outrageous…and not in a good way. But to help me throught the trauma and awkwardness, I am once again joined by veteran podcasters Michael Bailey of Views From the Longbox and Thomas Deja of Better in the Dark, who actually are kind enough to do the synopses this time out. Score!!! So unless you want to hear more of Arisia’s ass-kicking fighting soundtrack, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
