YO! I’m sorry I haven’t been around! I had a kid! A Bouncing Baby Boy… Guess What!!!
His Name is Oliver! We live in Queens…seconds a stretch but, he is named after the Emerald Archer.
I come back to a notification that we are reading GL/GR and it starts with like the most well know issue/arc of this run!. I see why NO SPOILERS, other than the cover? Anyway, sycronicity. I’ll pick up from here, may go back a week but I have these all, in issue and a TP, I’m sure as we all do, so I can pick right up!!!
Also, I got this. I ordered a handmade Blue Lantern Ring (Real thing, I swear, so if you got a Green one we should hook up!) I bet some of you know this maker from Thailand…
That’s a tough one, because I thought 86 was a great conclusion to that story, but the introduction of John Stewart in 87 was great as well…
Was anything surprising to see?
I was surprised to see Ollie deciding to run for mayor in his story in #87. I didn’t realize they did that back in the day, I guess Judd Winnick was inspired by this story to do that during his run.
How did you like the introduction of John Stewart?
It was pretty good. I was a little surprised by the characterization of both John and Hal in this. I think because my introduction to John was in the Justice League cartoon, I’m used to him being more straight-laced, and in other comics I’m used to Hal being more hot-headed and kind of a disaster. So in a way, this story of John being flippant about protecting this a-hole of a senator and Hal calling him out on it kind of feels like nowadays it would be the other way around.
