“Blackstar at Zenith!” Hal Jordan has abandoned the Green Lantern Corps to join the Blackstars! But to do so, he’ll need to convince their leader, Countess Belzebeth, and pass an initiation test. Which means he must survive a series of trials on the vampire planet Vorr, whose entire population wants to feast upon him! It’s cosmic goth at its bloodiest…with a cliffhanger that’s even bloodier!

Doom Patrol Episodes 1 & 2: To Doom Patrol or Not to Doom Patrol?

DC‘s new high concept streaming TV series is based on the cult classic comics. The show is exclusively available on DC’s streaming platform DC Universe. Is the show good? Is it worth subscribing to the platform? We discuss the service and the show’s first two episodes in depth (first part is spoiler-free). We also geek out on the brilliant comics that inspired it all and when or how to read them.

  • Mental illness and unrully bodies
  • Doom Patrol: X-Men or Fantastic Four?
  • Negative Man is Green Lantern as horror
  • Worthy usage of a David Bowie song
  • “Dad feels are the new romance”
  • Is Doom Patrol capable of handing it’s queer characters? 
  • Reading the comics while watching the show?

My guests are:

Comic’s retailer and pop culture critic John Arminio@QuasarSniffer on Twitter.

Mark Argent: Resident Doom Patrol-ologist. Who back in High School served as the Virgil to my Dante in the hell of comics fandom. Perhaps this show is their fault. But @mark_argent can’t take it back now.

In a bar on Rann, two shrouded strangers recount two blood-chilling narratives-one in which a Blackstar heavyweight demands access to a secret vault on planet Weirwimm, threatening its gruesome annihilation with Sun-Eaters; and the other about maverick Hal Jordan and his small cadre of GLs struggling to destroy those same Sun-Eaters. And the cliffhanger-as any TGL fan will tell you about this book-may stun you enough to buy two copies!

When the Earth goes up for sale on the alien black market, it’s up to the Green Lantern Corps to bust up “The Slave Lords of the Stars” in the latest space saga from Grant Morrison (MULTIVERSITY) and Liam Sharp (WONDER WOMAN)! With the Justice League frozen by Gamma Gong tech, Earth ends up on the auction block, and Volgar Zo hosts a menagerie of the universe’s deadliest despots and criminals: Steppenwolf, Queen Bee, the Dominators and much, much worse. Hal Jordan leads a squad of Lanterns into the fray-and someone’s going to pay the ultimate price before this case gets closed.

Review: The Green Lantern #2

This new direction for the Green Lanterns continues to take things back to basics in a way with a focus on the police aspect of the characters and a few scenes that are straight cop tropes.

The Green Lantern #2 features writing from Grant Morrison, art by Liam Sharp, color by Steve Oliff, and lettering by Tom Orzerchowski.
