Convergence is finally over and that means DC is pumping out a whole bunch of new #1s and The Omega Men instantly propelled itself up to the top of my DC pull list. The concept of space terrorists/ freedom fighters who may or may not have killed Kyle Rayner, the Green Lantern I grew up reading, was just too much to ignore. So is The Omega Men #1 a knock out of the park breakthrough title, total crap, or something else altogether? I’ll tell you one thing, it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting.

Convergence Roundup: Week 2
This week, the focus of the Convergence tie-ins fall squarely on the Zero Hour time period. With that in mind, many of these issues have a very 90’s feel to them, especially considering that one of the cities that Zero Hour Metropolis has to fight is the San Diego from Jim Lee’s Wildstorm universe. Overall, I think the quality of the tie-ins are better this week than last week, but there were also no stand outs like last week’s Question #1. Just in case you missed how awesome that issue is then you can see all my thoughts about it and last week’s other tie-ins here.

Welcome back to the second edition of In Brightest Day, the one article where I talk about and review all things Green Lantern that goes on every week. As you may or may not have known, the entire Lantern franchise, five books in total, are currently involved in a super large crossover event entitled Godhead where all the Lanterns from the various corps face off against the New Gods of New Genesis. Last week, we began the beginning of the end of the crossover with a surprisingly funny Green Lantern #37 and continue to march are way towards the finale this week in Green Lantern Corps #37. Continue reading In Brightest Day: 12/10/14
So I’ve read a lot of Green Lantern in my time. I practically grew up with Kyle Rayner in my hands so it is only natural that I write a column about Green Lantern. This definitely has nothing to with the fact that I realized DC’s weekly comics will be ending soon thus ending my DC Weekly column too… Anyways, lucky for me… I mean lucky for us, DC has seen fit to publish five Lantern books a month and each week I will tell you how I feel about them right here. This week is a big week since both Sinestro #7 and Green Lantern #37 both came out. So lets dig right on in.

Its finally here. Ever since the Source Wall first showed up all the way at the beginning of Venditti’s run, it has been simply a matter of time before Kirby’s New Gods made their way into the Green Lantern line and here is where it happens. Highfather has been searching for that Life Equation for a really long time, and now he knows where to find it. Continue reading Review: Green Lantern/ New Gods: Godhead #1
Hello, Geeks, and welcome to a very special installment of Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot. I say it’s special because I’ve decided to get back to the spirit of what Top o’ the Lot was originally conceived to be, namely, the completely weird, slanted, and biased rundown of some trivially specific and arbitrary list of geek goodness. So, I’ve decided to do a series of comic book lists all revolving around characters and color, and what better way to spotlight all of the colors of the rainbow, and kill a Roy G. Biv’s worth of ToLs in a single day, then running down the colors in order. So, without further ado, we’re thankful we’re halfway through, Orange is hard (again!), and Green is so awesome, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot Comic Book Characters by Color: Green!
