Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

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

I know I've been on an X-kick lately (I tend to cycle in and out of my favorites as to which one gets my primary focus at any given time) but can I just say...

This month's Green Lantern Corps was awesome. Completely. And utterly.

I'm thrilled about the Emerald Warriors news, and I think John will get a far better share of attention in GLC than in Green Lantern (and Ganthet too!), but I'm going to miss the Kyle/Guy team-up darnit. :-(

Oh well, there's always crossovers.

    I enjoyed it thoroughly, but I was a bit ticked later when I realized Mogo got to essentially do Soranik's thing better than she did. I mean, a blood transfusion. The doctor is in the house...

    GL Corps was pretty solid. Mogo was a bad ass with the leach cleansing thing. While I'll be glad to see John get some more play,I am not too keen on the military angle they are taking with him. But such is the life of a comic book character.

    Jack: Eh, I think it's supposed to be a bit grander scale than that though. I'll buy it. Soranik's still badass in other occasions.

    Besides, Mogo's like their psychologist. It's not like say KYLE out-healed her. :-P

    Empath: It's a good contrast to Hal, but they'll probably play the vibe different with Kyle, I'd guess.

    The Green Lantern books were INDEED quite fabulous this month. I too am going to miss Kyle and Guy, they work so well together. On the other hand, I'm rather thrilled at having Guy team up with Kilowog more often, since I like the two of them together as well. At least Kyle will have John to hang out with, and be the brains.

    Three Green Lantern Books! Life is good.

    I scrapped the previous comment because of an error. Hey Sally P, what does "and be the brains" mean? Is it that by 'hanging' with John, Kyle by default will be the 'brains' of that outfit?

    I love Kyle, but there is no escaping the fact that occasionally, he is a little on the...dim side. For that matter, so is Hal.

    John is probably the smartest Green Lantern of the four, although Guy is pretty smart when he wants to be. So, it's a good thing that Kyle has John to be the "brains" in their partnership.

    I apologize for being obtuse.
