Viva la Sinestro Corps!
Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 99 of The Podcast of Oa with conversation about February’s Green Lantern books. With DC Comics’ recent announcement about their Rebirth initiative and all the Green Lantern books being replaced with two twice-monthly series both Myron and Bill have opinions on what these books might be like and how it impacts the current series.
Both Bill and Myron felt that the conclusion to the Sonar arc in the main Green Lantern title didn’t provide the satisfaction it could have, with neither Sonar nor Hal Jordan ever coming face to face. Both hosts found themselves routing for the Sinestro Corps as they took down the Paling and wondering how it will effect the way Earth’s hero community will view the yellow lanterns. There were some surprising moments in this month’s Edge of Oblivion issue along with the announcement that Ethan Van Sciver would be leaving the series with issue three to focus on DC: Rebirth.
