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.

Jules: Ultimate FF #1
I’ve gotta say I’m really looking forward to see what Fikalov does with his third of the Ultimate Universe. Coming off the heels of Cataclysm, the Ultimate Universe’s Iron Man, Invisible Woman, Falcon, Machine Man? do what our 616 FF did once: and that is build a foundation for the betterment of the future. I just think its awesome, especially since their S.H.I.E.L.D. is now defunct. The cast is cool, the concept seems solid, I’m looking forward to this one.

Christian: Sinestro #1
As much as I’m looking forward to Batman Eternal #2, that’s probably going to be something I could say every week, and the move DC has made to give Sinestro his own title may just turn yellow light into gold. Surely this book is spinning out of Forever Evil, but I really want to see the direction Cullen Bunn plans on taking the character, and with Dale Eaglesham an art, it’ll be good either way.

But no matter how desperate he becomes, Sinestro will never be without fear…a lesson his one-time ally, one-time enemy Lyssa Drak is eager to teach him! Can he take back the despicable Yellow Lantern Corps? Or does the universe have a new destiny in mind for Sinestro?
Gaumer: Justice League #29
Yes, the Justice League is still a thing at DC Comics. Although it’s been bogged down in the creative quagmire that is Forever Evil, I’ve enjoyed the event overall, and at least some of the tie-ins, but JL has been one of the best. I’m excited to see the ball get rolling again, but I’m not sure if it’s because the event is so good or I just want it to be over already. Either way, this book is at the top of my stack this week.
