DC, You're SUCH a Tease!

If you have been on the computer, or if you have picked up your books this Wednesday, odds are, that you have seen the latest Teaser image that DC is displaying, for the Brightest Day books.

Pretty cool, eh?

There has of course, been QUITE a bit of rather high-flown and deeply thunk-out analysis of the aforementioned piece of art. And an interesting piece it is. I have my own interpretation of it, which will probably differ from yours.

First off, displayed more or less front and center, is the body of Hal Jordan in a nifty White Lantern suit, reclining languidly inside the broken shell of the White Lantern, and bleeding rather copiously over the side. There has been a lot of interpretation of this portrayal of course. But really, it's pretty simple...it's HAL JORDAN! He tripped and fell into the White Lantern, most probably hitting his head and knocking himself out in the process, and cutting himself on the broken glass. No mystery there! He'll come to eventually, and be right as rain.

Poor Aquaman on the other hand, is a blond and if there is one thing that blonds should know, it is to use sufficient sunblocker when tanning. It looks as though Arthur forgot that useful piece of information and...cooked himself. I wonder if he'll taste like lobster? Mera seems quite beside herself, probably because she TOLD Arthur, and he didn't listen.

Men!

Jade seems to be taking an impromptu nap. Hawk and Dove were considerate enough to move her out of the way.

Ronnie and Jason are probably looking for buried treasure, or at least building a nice dry-stack stone wall. They really should do something about those legs sticking out though.

J'onn J'onnz, having gotten over his fear of fire, is making s'mores.

The Anti-Monitor, is practicing being a cloud.

The Hawkpeople, don't really seem to be enjoying themselves at all.

Deadman, is trying out for a new profession, that of stone cutter. It is a little less risky than being an acrobat.

And way in the back, Atrocitus and Guy are...building things, and apparently doing a darned fine job of it. Ganthet is throwing tennis balls and bouncing off the wall. Ganthet may be old, but he has the attention span of a four-year old.

Oh, and that new Aquakid is busy posing. Black Manta, hiding under a rock...well, he's hiding under a rock. And then they'll ALL play with those nice abandoned boomerangs.

Well, except for Aquaman, who has one hell of a sunburn.

OK, I completely lost it at the Anti-Monitor "pretending to be a cloud". Haw!

The great thing about this is that I recognize the original! The original is used in the first printing of the boardgame Masterpiece. I think it's called "the rock" or something like that.

You can see it in the lower right corner of this photo

It's actually a pretty fair homage to the original painting. I happen to think that adding Green Lanterns can only IMPROVE the classics!

I was laughing the whole time, but lost it at The Anti-Monitor pretending to be a cloud.

WAY better than my interpretation!!!

Liss, it's nice to see the Anti-Monitor showing his light and fluffy side.
