A New Record!

Well, I'll be damned. This, according to that handy dandy little counter thing, is apparently my 1500th post. That is a LOT of Green Lantern Butt objectification! It all just goes to show what a fetish can do for a person! So thank you to every one who has read this silliness. And please be warned that I have a whole lot more silliness in mind.

And now, here's the Review of Green Lantern #4. Because it is all about the Lanterns. And their behinds.

As you all no doubt recall from LAST issue, it sure looked as though Hal had just been disintegrated by Sinestro's Yellow Battery. Hal certainly wasn't very happy. But naturally...being Hal...he used his last seconds to think about Carol.

Sinestro isn't too happy either, wondering how Hal managed to screw things up. But the Battery realized that Hal wasn't Sinestro, and therefore spit him out, instead of sending him to Qward. Of course he is promptly taken prisoner by the Sinestro Corps, and tossed into a cell, which will drain his ring of its power. I'm not quite sure if Hal was out of it when he was tossed into the cell, because the tosser DID announce quite loudly that it would drain his ring. He also thinks that Hal is beautiful.

Hal IS beautiful. And dumb, because he immediately starts making constructs to cut his way out of the cell, and none of it works


Hal is nothing if not persistent. He does eventually realize that he just blew all his power, and decides that he only has enough power for one more thing, so he conjures up an image of Carol. Awwww...that's so sweet! Now if he could only actually TELL HER of his feelings!

Anyhoo...Sinestro isn't having a much better time of it, as he's being tortured by his erstwhile followers. They just can't understand what he's doing with a green ring and are doing their level best to get it off of his finger...and throwing a little torture into the mix, because why the hell not? But the ring won't come off, and they are contemplating removing his whole hand. They don't but do toss him into another cell, that is holding all of the Korugarians. Sinestro can't quite understand why they are all so mad at him. We also learn more about Arsona, and it turns out that she was one of the few who stood up for him way back when, except that she's not too happy with him NOW. Sinestro tries to defend his methods, but she's not having any of it. Meanwhile, Hal is listening in, from his cell next door.

Then Sinestro does something amazing. He...he actually says that he's sorry. And I actually think that he even...means it! The rest of the Korugarians aren't necessarily buying his remorse, but still...for Sinestro, that's quite a step! Hal decides to put in his two cents right about this point, and says that Sinestro could make rings for EVERYONE, so that they could escape. He also gets in a little dig about how Sinestro's ring isn't as good as a REAL Green Lantern ring, just to that Sinestro doesn't think that Hal thinks he's All That.

Sinestro is skeptical, and who can blame him, but with Hal playing cheerleader, he pours out his willpower, and lo and behold, everybody has a ring! Woohoo! Too bad that all they want to do is kill him! Oh Hal. Oh Sinestro, for listening to Hal!

As usual, the art by Doug Mahnke is sensational and the colors just...glow. Geoff Johns has a deft way with the story, I swear to God, that Hal and Sinestro act like an old married couple. This is just a whole lot of comic book fun.

I love the panel with the fist. The art in this one was just great....the story was great. I am really really enjoying this. I love the look on Hal as his ring is drained.

He's in such a state of disbelief...I love it too. And the art on Green Lantern has been consistantly gorgeous, which is always a bonus!

I just wanted to say I've been reading your blog for FOREVER and never commented, but you seem to be the only other person on the whole internet who loves the Hal/Sinestro partnership the way I do.

I hope Geoff never breaks them up. They're just too awesome together.

(Also you're hilarious).

Well thank you Allison. Seriously, how can you NOT like Sinestro and Hal together? They play off of each other SO well.

Geoff has been doing wonderful things with Sinestro.
