Default Green Lanten/New Gods Event: Godhead

Quote:
Man alive, the Green Lantern Corps. just can’t seem to catch a break, huh? If it isn’t Brightest Day or Blackest Night, then it’s some other cosmic crisis threatening to destroy the universe as we know it. As we learned during Green Lantern: Lights Out, the universe’s ring-wielders broke through the Source Wall that surrounds the universe and stole secrets of immense cosmic power. One problem? Highfather, the leader of the New Gods, knows what they did and is trying to finds those secrets for himself by using one ring of every color of the emotional spectrum. Of course, nothing is ever that simple and what follows will threaten to alter the very fabric of the universe as we know it in “Godhead”, a monthlong crossover event that finds Green Lantern and the New Gods entangled in a struggle for intergalactic survival. Thanks to our friends at DC Comics, we have your exclusive first look at the solicitation info and covers for the first six issues of the arc.

Here’s the official solicitation information and covers.

I've never been much of a New Gods fan, and I doubt this will change that. Could be interesting, but do we REALLY need to have another event involving all the colors? Ugh.

The covers are nice. The idea of tying the White Entity to a Life Equation makes sense.

But enough with the crossovers already.

Look at the bigger picture. We can finally be rid of some of the dumb elements from the emotional spectrum, Kyle may finally become a GL again, and not only do we get more New Gods... but NEW New Gods. I'm a lot more excited about this than the Superman book reintroducing some New Gods....

But I don't have $ for comics presently. So it doesn't really matter. If books went back down to 25 cents I might be able to afford a few a week LOL

You must be looking into my head, because this is almost word for word my thoughts on this one.

It sounds to me like some characters could be changing for better or worse, and that the New Gods may control at least a few colors from the spectrum by event's end. In all honesty the Blues, Indigos, and Reds have been around long enough. It's a damn wonder Red Lanterns has lasted this long. If Larfleeze isn't gonna ever be the badass he was originally he can die too for all I care. And it was a mistake giving the Sapphires rings during the War of Light... all we REALLY need is Sinestro and maybe a Corps or gang of yellow minions, and the Green Lanterns. The franchise needs to get back to basics rather than beat a dead horse [the emotional spectrum] even further into the ground. It got old anywhere from 3-5 years ago...

I say let the New Gods have all the newer colors. They're all bland derivative ripoffs of the GLC anyway; no imagination or anything original was ever laid in the groundwork to set each group apart. They'all lazy copies. Keep a few for Sinestro and a Star Saphire for Zamoran, and happily give all the other shit to the New Gods franchise.

The GL franchise will be better off for it in the long run.

The story has potential, but that 2nd pic has got to be the ugliest rendering of Hal since the Silver Age. He looks like a chimpanzee.

Well color me intrigued. There's a lot of potential with The New Gods, though I wouldn't be surprised if the whole arc ended up sucking.

THE NEW GODS !? You are going to dust off those lame assholes? DC you are just so awful now. I hope you switch to digital, stop wasting paper with your crap. Is the goal to make the book so bad that the 2011 movie looks like masterpiece by comparison ? It's working. Glad I stopped reading GL.

I loved me some Kirby "New Gods!" (Simonson's version was pretty cool too) I can see why DC never really had the two franchises mix very much before - sci-fi vs. cosmic mythology, each franchise kinda has its own view of the universe and the powers that govern it, etc.... but combining the emotional Spectrum to the Source Wall and Kyle having the "Life Equation" etc... has me intrigued at how they're mixing the two mythologies.

I like that the threat isn't something from GL lore - it seems that as "big" as the previous threats had been, they seemed too self-contained to the GL universe. The New Gods at least are part of the greater DCU. That said, I'm tired of stories where the GLC are being targeted for one reason or another. Can't they actually just save the universe against some dire threat rather than fighting to save themselves all the time?

My god, I know right. Actually, the silver age was 100% better than this piece of crap, Billy Tan is definitely the worst artist for GL ever and probably the worst comicbook artist ever. His mask is still to high, his hair is too flat, too many stray lines where he's not bothered to rub them out, too "stylised" but really just looks like he doesn't know how to draw, and even the basic structure of the body is so badly done, he's drawn muscle detail but the outer lines are straight and plat thus looks a bit like he's a skinny guy wearing one of those T shirts with the muscles drawn/printed on.

Other than the dreadful writing, Tans art is another big reason I stopped the main title years ago. Sadly for GLC the writing was awful, but the art wasn't bas (I loved the cover art but even that wasn't enough to keep me on the title, the inner art was average though). New Guardians is just bad in general, the art isn't bad, isn't good but the writing is shit. The only book I still read in the GLverse is Red Lanterns where I actually really enjoy it, but I've not read it for the last 7 or 10 issues to things might have changed. Love the cover art for RLs 32 though. Or is it 33? Not sure.

Yo.

so this new event sounds like DC decided to mixed this:



with this:



with this sorta mentality:



and that Highfather would end up with something like this:



man, I honestly cant wait to see how this plays out.

3 Things:

First that New Gods: God Head cover made me laugh. New Gods going around collecting multicolored rings, with that image of GL looking comically scared? I wasn't sure how serious to take it.

Second....a cube? Really a cube? How unoriginal and also unfitting since it only has 6 sides to fit the 7 rings on. Hopefully it's only there for the cover?

Lastly....oh right Sinestro's book I suppose it was only time that it would be part of the crossovers.

I love cosmic stories, so I would be more than welcoming for a New Gods story with the Lanterns, but having them collecting rings just seems like a silly story and I'm not sure how well they can execute it to make it seem serious.

They just need to hire George Perez and Jim Starlin to do this event. They can call it The Infinity Lantern!

Yo.

He began penciling the series in July of '13 so if you quit reading it years ago then it was for reasons other than Tan's art. Don't go blaming the guy for other's mistakes and sub par work...

And don't go getting him confused with Philip Tan who penciled the one good Agent Orange story that introduced the character during the War of Light. Billy's full name is Billy Tan Mung Khoybut [he just goes by Billy Tan] and he's drawn nearly three times as many comics as Philip. If you HAVE to put blame on somebody for sub par artwork or writing blame the editor for letting this stuff see print. I wholeheartedly believe that an art editor should be hired to look at this stuff before it sees print. It takes two seconds to look at a pic and know if it's good work or not. But that image of Hal, good God that IS terrible.

Kyle won't go back to being a GL.

Nothing will happen here that will change the status quo of the other corps.

Since the new gods are in this, this is probably just build up to whatever will take place next year involving darkseid and the anti monitor.
