Question "Emerald Knights" continuity ? (*Spoilers* from "Emerald Knights" & "War of GL")

Hello.
New member question:

Anyone knows if there will be a story arc with Sodam Yat/Zardor/Killowog and Arisia?

It was a major disappointment to see "war of the Green lantern" completely ignore the previous stories from "emerald knights":

- suddenly blue lanterns power up green lantern rings again!?
- no lantern leaves another lantern behind but they can forget about Sodam Yat?
- Zardor apparently forgot about Krona and went on a vacation

and ok, snakes for tongue is not that cool,. but the worst part is that the plot of "emerald knights" is a better story than the "war of the green lanterns"

and once i started complaining, why is "war of the green lanterns" centered on the same 4 as always? Yeah yeah, they survived Parallax, but if so why is Kilowog got such a small part?
very sloppy work on the end of volume 4.


Having said that, the rest of the series is completely amazing! Both GL and GLC completely blew my mind and maybe that's why i'm such a winny b%& right now!

thanks & sorry for my poor english

I'm assuming you mean Emerald Warriors, not Emerald Knights.

Unfortunately, that entire plot has been dumped, and it seems Sodam Yat has been completely forgotten.

UPSSS
you're right
"Emerald Knights" is the animated movie! sorry for the mess!

I got really disappointed because i loved the Guy/Bleez interaction. And because i think it's really disrespectful to create such plotholes with such disregard for characters & readers.

The Yat/Zardor plot was pushed aside for the War of the GLs crossover.

Just finished "war of the GL- aftermath" and theres a Guy story where guardians mention Kilowog and Arisia Rrab both on a special mission.

Let's hope someone picks this up and starts cleaning the house a bit!

I'd give it five years or so.

Beating the dead horse a bit...

Pardon our confusion, Coltrane, and welcome to the boards. "Emerald Knights" was also the title of the story arc in GL Vol 3 #100-106 + GA 136, in which the Eden Corps tried to blow up Seattle by nuking Mount Rainier (and I kinda take that personally!--see my profile). It was a wonderful time travel story, but filled with the usual temporal anomalies which boggle my mind. Would love to see that story line picked back up again too...did Carol ever tell Hal that his much younger past self visited her after he was dead? But with our luck, Flashpoint blew that continuity to hell too.

Sodam Yat, Kilowog, and Arisia will return. Good characters will not be wasted. If it is the intention of the big bad Guardians to do away with all 7200 Lanterns one by one or in collective, you bet they'll be in the middle of the fight. Maybe not this summer. Maybe next summer. Whether you like Johns' writing or not, he is setting the stage.
