Quote:
COMIC VINE: What is going on in this issue?

TONY BEDARD:
Hal Jordan had recently lost his mind, wiped out the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians of the Universe, and returned to Earth as Parallax wielding the power of the entire GL Corps. But as Kyle Rayner and the rest of the Justice League were trying to fight him, the dome went up over Metropolis and suddenly Hal was cut off from the power that pretty much changed him into someone else. Suddenly he was Hal again, and the crushing realization of what he'd done just sort of flooded over him. So Hal's spent the year since then in self-imposed incarceration. Kyle visits him every day, trying to convince him that he wasn't responsible for killing the Corps, Parallax was. But when the dome comes down and Kyle is compelled to battle Princess Fern of Electropolis, Parallax is once again free, and he may prove to be the biggest threat of all on this planet.

Can someone remind me why Grant Morrison has a writing credit on the omnibus? Is it because he came up with the Alpha Lanterns concept?? Or did he write/co-write an issue/story that I'm forgetting?

DC UNIVERSE #0 Apparently is in the omnibus. I've forgotten what segment of that story had GL stuff though.

Hrmmm...did Morrison and Johns actually work on every story in DC Universe #0 together? For some reason I thought they split up each bit.

Anyways Green Lantern returns in Justice League #39.

Grant Morrison did the RIP portion of DC Universe 0 and the Final Crisis prelude.

The GL portion was a prelude to Blackest Night.

I was thinking that maybe Johns and Morrison co-wrote every short story in DC Universe #0 but I just checked my copy of Batman R.I.P. which collects that prelude and Johns isn't credited as a writer. Curious.

Nope. Gail Simone wrote the wonder woman portion. So it is weird that he's credited.

Really? 'Cause the only credited writers in that issue are Morrison and Johns.

That's a great looking piece of art! It sooths my eyes after having to look at Tan's horrible work. Can we get a great artist back on the main GL book and a better writer?

I know that after each teaser they had the creative teams listed that were going to be continuing the story, I just find it odd that Morrison and Johns are the only credited writers within the book itself while all the artists are listed:

Strip Tease Twisters?! That has to be a nod to From Dusk Til Dawn. Didn't notice it the first time (that I remember).

And all this still doesn't explain why Morrison has a writing credit on the omnibus lol.

It's probably because of his involvement with the Alpha Lanterns concept. But that's a guess.

I'd settle for just changing the artist at this point.

Justice League #39.

It sucks that this is a series I collect in TPB, I won't be reading it until next year considering how the JL trades seem to crawl to the bookstores.

That was my first thought but he isn't credited on the trade. Strange.

Interview: Cullen Bunn Talks LOBO, The Pariah, and Bekka's Future in SINESTRO
Quote:
CV: The end of the latest issue of SINESTRO shows Bekka, a New God, as a member of the Sinestro Corps. While Sinestro has sacrificed a lot of members during this run, is Bekka, the Sinestro Corps member, going to carry through Convergence?

CB: Bekka will be around for quite a while. Sinestro has plans for the New God, and those plans will carry through the storyline for many issues to come. There are also more than a few questions remaining about Bekka’s motivations for donning a yellow ring, and we’ll be exploring that as well. These two are playing a dangerous game that I think will be a lot of fun for readers.

CV: Mongul and the Sinestro Corps have a long-standing relationship of sorts. Mogul, once again, is craving the power of Parallax and is willing to do almost anything to get it. Would you say Mongul's plot is more about revenge or power?

CB: Mongul certainly wants power, and he is more than capable of claiming it. It’s his desire for revenge, though, that gets him into trouble. Mongul has drawn Sinestro out using tactics that would have worked on himself. He struck at Korugarians in hopes that Sinestro would rocket headlong into a trap. But Sinestro, I think, is a little more level-headed about such things. Even when he’s angry, he’s always planning a few steps ahead.

CV: What drives your writing when it comes to the father and daughter dynamic in this book?

CB: The relationship between parent and child is something I’m always interested in exploring. With Sinestro and Soranik, it’s particularly interesting, because they are seemingly complete opposites in every way. What’s exciting for me is that Soranik and Sinestro is that they are engaged in this kind of tug-of-war and we’re not sure who will win. Will Soranik drag Sinestro into the light? Or will Sinestro pull his daughter into the shadows? One side will definitely gain a lot of ground in the next few issues.
