A Guy's Best Friend

No, I'm not referring to G'nort...although I am sure that he'd LIKE to be known as Guy's bestest buddy. Instead, I am talking about Kilowog.

Sure, Guy has a mancrush on Hal, but then really...who doesn't? And he's partners with Kyle, and he seems to get along just fine with John, and any number of other people. But I think that when push comes to shove, Kilowog is his Best Friend Forever.

Aren't they adorable?

After the USUAL explosive beginnings, where they didn't get along at ALL...Kilowog thought that Guy was a lunatic,and Guy thought that Kilowog was a Commie...they rather surprisingly became much closer. To be frank, NOBODY liked Guy initially, but Kilowog was the first one to come around. It might have had something to do with the fact that Guy decided to invade the Soviet Union, in order to rescue him, along with John and Katma. He also managed to bring the world to the brink of another war, and beat up vast numbers of soldiers, but for Guy, that was just another Tuesday.

I don't know what exactly it was, that made Kilowog look at Guy differently. Maybe he'd had all he could take of Hal's posturing. Maybe he was a little upset that Hal and Arisia were making out like bunnies, when he had a bit of a crush on Arisia as well. Maybe it was Guy's pranks. Or maybe, it was because after most of them lost their rings, and were stranded powerless on an alien planet, Guy (and Arisia) was the ONLY one to come and visit him and write him letters, and roughhouse, and just be there for him.

Keep in mind that this was when Guy was in brain-dead mode as well. He still managed to be a pretty decent human being. He's the one who brought Kilowog into the Justice League, which turned out to be rather a brilliant move. Kilowog's know-how managed to upgrade all of their security and equipment, it made him feel useful and needed again, and he provided a handy outlet for Guy's shenanigans. They helped each other...and that's what friends do.

Kilowog was also just about the only person other than Tora, who stuck up for Guy after Hal took his ring away. Guy's possesion of Sinestro's yellow ring made a LOT Of people very very nervous, principal of these being the Guardians. I think that Guy showed a lot of initiative in going after the ring, but that's just me.

Awwww...just look at that face. It's pretty obvious that Guy had Kilowog wrapped around his little finger. However, it is to Guy's credit that he actually felt bad about bamboozling his friend. Kilowog must have known to some degree that Guy was trying to con him, but to HIS credit, he let it go.

I hope...I REALLY hope that it isn't going to be Kilowog's death that sets Guy on the path to becoming a Red Lantern in the upcoming Blackest Night issue of GLC. It was bad enough when he died the first time. If he DOES take a dirt nap, then he had better be resurrected. QUICKLY!

Your drawings are wonderful, Mac! And yes, I think you've nailed Milagro and Lian perfectly.

I did think of one other thing that would be a great loss for the Green Lantern Corps and would make Guy really angry: Warriors! :)

Though you'd think he'd be used to seeing it in ruins by now. Still, anything but Kilowog!

Good Grief, I didn't even think about Warriors. I can see him getting really really pissed, but not to the extent that he's turn into a Red Lantern. On the other hand, who knows?

I guess we are actually going to have to wait and see, which is annoying. I want it NOW!

Actually, I want Green Lanterns EVERY week.
