KRYB!

KRYB!!!!!

YES!

And Earth2 Superman looks kinda naff to be honest, but it just might be the size of the picture. Indigo Lantern reveal is good to.

*EDIT* OMG! Doesn't he look just like the black guy in "From Dusk Till Dawn" after he turns into a vampire????

I'm just glad they're finally releasing a "GL Action Series" John. I steadly get closer to finishing my "Core GL" collection.

And isn't the black t- shirt style a nod to the Black Hand? Looks goofy, nevertheless.

Urgh I knew it was going to be Jonn and Kal-L. I was really hoping one would be Conner.

As a super GL fan (see previous thread) I am super stoked about this series.

Here is a quick recap of the GL story since the Sinestro Corps Wars (which everyone should buy and read, RIGHT NOW!)

The Preview looks interesting. I honestly think that any and every dead character will be showing up as a Black Lantern.

Not yet as far as I know. I don't think it will be until Rucka starts his Action run which stars Nightwing and Flamebird.
I got this feeling it won't be Kon, and I'll be so disappointed. If only him and Bart would come back...

I just hope they don't decide to introduce a White Lantern Corps to deal with the Black Lanterns. Although, if they did decide to go that route, I guess the White Lanterns could be deceased characters who willingly return - rather than being undead, which I assume is what the Black Lanterns are - to fight. Would be cool if Abin Sur (for obvious reasons) and Ke'Haan (due to what it would mean for a particular Red Lantern) were members, if they decided to have any former GLs as members.

Or "Rainbow" Lantern, and he turns around and not only starts to fight for homosexual rights, but says he is gay, and has been for years. He was just living a lie because he didn't know how the rest of the Corps. and JLA would take it.  <_<

Bah.

I was honestly hoping they'd find some way to fix her eventually. I have her first appearance, and you kind of have to wonder what the heck the Guardians were thinking in letting her be a GL, since she was a ninja and GLs aren't supposed to kill except under certain exceptions.

Still, Ke'Haan being a White Lantern if they went with the idea I came up with would be interesting because of his family being murdered after he was killed off.

(I should note that I've been keeping up with what's been going on in the GL titles through reading things online, rather than reading the comics - I still can't bring myself to read the books due to my dislike of Hal Jordan and belief that Kyle got the shaft.)

Just out of curiosity, is Pat Gleason still doing art on the GLC book? And what's the current status of the Green Lantern Corpse? (I hope I don't have to explain that....)

(I have a Gleason Kilowog head shot posted in my Comic Art Fans gallery that I got at a con last year; had a tough time deciding between asking for Kilowog or Arisia, my two favorite (living) alien GLs)

Red Lanterns? Black Lanterns? Orange Lanterns? Love Lanterns?!

I used to like Green Lantern a lot. Even if I didn't read the books, I really liked the concept. But what's with all this retconning and stuff?

I'm hoping it all makes much more sense on the inside. In passing, it sounds overwrought and needlessly epic.

Blue Lanterns?
