$3.00 for that ____?

I rather spend the $3 on a 70's House of Secrets comics.

Uh. . .what? :lol

I bet Jim Lee designed this outfit, as well. Seriously, why the ____ would a Green Lantern have a gun?

Agreed.

Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, and Geoff Johns can't be pushed in front of a moving bus fast enough. DC has been officially devolved into early 90s Image pap.

Because he might be from the hood, yo. After all, DC is trailblazing with their stereotypes presented as "diversity".

WTF is that?! Ghetto Lantern? You can create any weapon you imagine, and you're packing a sidearm?

Someone post a GIF of Arsenio Hall from Harlem Nights yelling "Put that little thing away!"

I don't care if they create a new superhero and make him into whatever but leave the old ones alone. :lol

They should have another crisis that merges Earths 1 & 2 and merges this guy with Alan Scott. It would be a black, arabic, homosexual Green Lantern. Diversity FTW!!!!

You say that as though this is the straw that broke the Camel's back, but I'd say we passed that point a while ago. For God's sake, Robin has feathers, Superboy has a friggin' Superman tattoo, Rob Liefeld's been on what? five books now? Now this? Mah goodness.

So Nacho Libre was chosen to be the next Lantern? Can't wait to see Jack Black put on the blackface for this one.

Oh, so the Arabic tattoo means he's Muslim. Subtle, DC. :lol

I think that what makes it just cross the line from "ridiculous" to "Pure ____" is the piece. They couldn't have just made the gun a construct from his ring? lolz :lol

White author. Black character with guns, tats, fingerless gloves...probably has a grill when he smiles. Sigh.

Seriously this is the ____ that happens when comicbook companies rely on the same tiny pool of authors for decades.

A woman at Emerald City Comic Con pointed out how absurdly few female writers there are at DC or Marvel. The DC response: women writers do not submit enough work. The Truth: DC has a policy against open submission.

Why the ____ would a Green Lantern ever need to carry a gun? Seriously I wonder what the ____ is going on over at DC lately, they are jumping into "Zero Hour" again and I'm sure the next Crisis is on the horizon.

I love how there has been a need for a teenage GL for decades not to mention a Earth woman and instead they're going to go with something mindnumbingly stupid

Simple. Just look at the masthead (who is in charge and making the big decisions) and the problem is painfully visible:

Dan DiDio
Jim Lee
Geoff Johns
Bob Harras

Basically, these guys are a confederacy of dunces. Let's do a head count:

Former (and current) hack writer and all-around meat head. Check.

Overrated artist who epitomizes style over substance and is stuck in the 90s. Check.

Overrated writer who's style is a knack for writing to the lowest-common demonitator. Check.

A Senior Editor who was partially responsible for the worst era in comics (the early 90s) that nearly destroyed the industry for good and who is the main reason utter hacks like Rob Liefeld still see lots of work. Check.


Yeah, good times.

Also, it's no surprise that it took this feckless group to fondle the WATCHMEN sacred cow. This is what happens when you have a dearth of ideas, leadership or strong ethical values.

We're lucky it's not even worse than it is.

I COMPLETELY agree, the comic book authors these days are so out of touch with everything. When they think diversity, they think just writing about a stereotype or something. Makes me want to burn all of their books.
