I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Not quite cryptic enough?

For the record, while I may not have been reading comics as long as a lot of you folk (five years this coming January!) I have to say,

I don't buy any death that takes place in the middle of a storyline involving alien zombies.

Especially not when someone's just started dating Sinestro's daughter.

I'm just saying.

    What? He's as dead as Jason Todd... uh... Bucky Barnes... uh...

    Yeah.

    Meh.

    I'm with Ragnell on this - Everybody's coming back. EVERYBODY.

    of course he's coming back. was still a great death scene though.

    I enjoyed the death scene too. :-)

    And yes, K.D. Bryan, that's pretty much what I think too. :-)

    I have no doubts that Kyle is coming back.

    It's almost disappointing, though, because that was one HELL of a death scene.

    I've always had a weak spot for Heroic Sacrifices and Holding The Bridge.

    It's been a long, long time since a comics character has died a death as good as this one, and had it stick.

    I think it may have finally dawned on DC that they may have more dead characters than living ones, and hopefully Blackest Night is going to address this imbalance.

    Heck of a death scene for Kyle though.

    Poor Kilowog. Poor Soranik. Poor Guy.

    I'm not quite as optimistic, because I think Kyle has been deathbait for a while, but he did die in a tie-in rather than the main series, so being back becomes more likely.

    He also died in the middle (not end, middle) of a multi-issue storyarc involving the dead coming back to life, after just recently embarking on a new romantic relationship with Sinestro's daughter.

    "Death-bait" seems a bit premature. Especially since, I firmly believe they're not about to kill him off permanently before Sinestro finds out his daughter's dating the "alley rat". It'd be too much missed potential. :-)

    Oh God yes. Can't you just SEE Sinestro having a hissy fit when Soranik and Kyle come over for Thanksgiving?

    Did we see a heart? I'm not buying it if we didn't see a heart.
