Writer Explains Hilarious Green Lantern Switcheroo

Writer Explains Hilarious Green Lantern Switcheroo

Today’s Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4 came with an unexpected appearance that left us in stitches. We talked to writer Robert Venditti about it and what it’s like working with fan-favorite artist Ethan van Sciver, plus we touch on his Valiant Comics work on the X-O Manowar finale and the tragic element he added to Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, not to mention his new novel/comic combo book, Miles Taylor and the Golden Cape: Rise of the Robot Army. Warning: this article contains full spoilers for Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4! To recap, Sinestro ordered his Yellow Lanterns to bring him Green Lantern Hal Jordan, and while they did return with a GL member, it wound up being loudmouth jokester Guy Gardner instead. Sinestro was not happy. Sapped of his powers, Guy’s costume faded and we witnessed the wonderful revelation that Guy does not wear anything under his Green Lantern uniform — not even underwear.

Suicide Squad #2 Review

Suicide Squad #2 Review

DC’s latest Suicide Squad series has plenty of appeal, but the first issue was held back by a few core flaws. For one thing, the odd story structure (with the backup story being nearly as long as the main tale) prevented the series from gaining much momentum right away. For another, there was little sense that this movie-inspired team would face the same sorts of danger and looming death that characterize this franchise. Luckily, issue #2 addresses both of those problems, in the process offering a more tightly paced and emotionally stirring adventure. Granted, this issue is still structured so that the main tale and backup feature are of roughly equal length. Presumably, this approach is intended to give artist Jim Lee more time to work on his segment. It may not necessarily be to the benefit of Rob Williams’ script, but if that’s the sacrifice necessary to make it possible to have Lee on a Suicide Squad comic, then so be it. Lee’s hyper-detailed, dynamic art is especially well-suited to this grittier corner of the DCU. It takes advantage of Lee’s talent for epic superhero action while simultaneously offering a darker, bloodier sensibility. Lee also makes great use of grid-based page layouts and repetitive panels to highlight the unfolding violence. It should also be said that the brighter coloring in these pages meshes with Lee’s work in a way that didn’t always happen with his New 52 projects. Continue reading…

Star Wars: Turner Signs $250 Million Rights Deal

Star Wars: Turner Signs 0 Million Rights Deal

Time Warner division Turner has secured the cable rights to Disney’s collection of Star Wars films. According to Variety, Turner signed a deal with Disney that industry sources estimate to be no less than $250 million. This partnership grants Turner the basic cable rights to 10 Star Wars films (four of which are still on the horizon), with a separate agreement being made with 20th Century Fox for the original film, A New Hope. In addition to Turner, USA Network and FX Networks were also in contention for the deal with Disney. The terms of the deal grant Turner a license that runs through at least 2022, incorporating the four yet-to-be released Star Wars films that are part of the package. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was released to record-breaking numbers last year, reportedly boasted a licensing fee of somewhere between $35 million and $40 million. The four films still on the horizon, including Rogue One and Episode VIII, are said to have each been priced similarly. Continue reading…

How Civil War Affects Steve Rogers' Costume in Infinity War

How Civil War Affects Steve Rogers' Costume in Infinity War

Don’t expect Steve Rogers to be getting a major wardrobe makeover in Avengers: Infinity War even with the big changes at the end of Captain America: Civil War. Full spoilers for Captain America: Civil War continue below. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently confirmed to the Huffington Post that when Steve drops the Captain America shield at the end of Civil War, he’s giving up that superhero identity. But just because Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America doesn’t mean he’s going to look all that different as a civilian in Avengers: Infinity War. Get used to seeing a lot of Chris Evans in nondescript T-shirts and jeans, explained Infinity War costume designer Judianna Makovsky, because that’s come to define his “Steve Rogers” identity. Continue reading…

Wrestling Wrap Up: Fine, Cena Can Be World Champ Again

Wrestling Wrap Up: Fine, Cena Can Be World Champ Again

FINE! John Cena can be world champ again. I suppose. Hmph. Sigh. . . That doesn’t mean that Cena’s next title reign will come at the expense of current WWE World Champ AJ Styles, but it’s going to eventually happen so I need to be okay with it. We’ve staved this off for long enough. Cena hasn’t been champ in two years. It’s been an amazing, rewarding ride. He’s had the U.S. belt, held various feuds, and even gone after the top championship a few times, but for the most part he’s been out of the picture. Literally even, as he’s been taking unprecedented (for Cena) time off to do outside-of-WWE stuff and things. Continue reading…
