It`s Monday

The start of the work week and another  discussion about me and what I have recently been up to in the last week. The simple answer is collecting Green Lantern comics. The long version, well continue reading onward and let the story unfold for you,

Within the last few years I have been subjecting myself to more and more comics that have interested me over time, but  sadly some of these stories that interested me did not have a definitive starting point in my opinion like The Flash, Superman, and Green Lantern to name a few. Hope was not lost though because at some point down the road I was introduced to a few recommended reading lists, thanks to the courtesy of  friendly people online hunting on forums and wikis, makes a man love the internet for more than just porn. Now with a new found confidence in me I knew what I was looking for and I jumped right in to the Green Lantern universe.

Reading the tales of Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, and John Stewart I have been impressed and gladly even found my self new favorite heroes to add to my list such as the likes of Green Lantern and Previous Ion  bearer Kyle Rayner. The four Green Lanterns of Earth have had some pretty awesome moments  in the comic book pages. such as the defeat of Paralax, The Sinestro Corp War and even the birth of the Blue Hope Lanterns to name a few. I highly recommend these stories to anyone who loves a good science fiction story and wants something exciting, especially the works of Geoff Johns and the books around them such as Green Lantern Corp or Ion Guardian of the Universe, you can see the connections these stories all have together before during and after the main events in the Green Lantern universe and it is a delight for people who just love that attention to detail.

I can`t wait to finally get caught up in these stories and see how they have been affected in the New 52 issues of comics especially with the discussion of the Third Army arc and Geoff Johns still writing strong for the main Green Lantern series. I know I have been reading the Green Lantern New Guardians with Kyle Rayner and Writer Berdard and I love every minute of it so far, so I`m looking forward to the other comics too. As there is nothing left to say I leave you tonight with a strong will that burns a bright green thanks to these books.

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!

well I’m sure if you have been paying attention Avengers has come out today, and yes I picked up my copy. It’s an amazing movie experience and you should totally watch it if you haven’t, Now this is the 90’s Nerd so your probably asking yourselves “what does this have to do with the nineties?’ watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLD1yq7eVoY.

Yes the Avengers were in the nineties too under the name Avengers: United They Stand, now I’ll be honest I was not a comic book fan while I was a child in the nineties, but I did watch this show and well let’s say that it didn’t hold up. A few of the things that really stand out in this series that were major differences compared to the regular Avengers team Ant-man is the leader, everyone armors up and the big three Ironman, Thor and Captain America aren’t on the team. To add injury to insult though the big three do actually show up at the end of the intro as if to say “yep we still exist.”

Anyway to be fair I did enjoy this series as a child, but when i grew up and started reading comics and watching superior marvel cartoons and movies you realize this is the one that may not hold up, due to animation that is okay at best, story being some what interesting but never great, and lastly the armor up thing was a little silly, but hey I love super heroes so who am I to argue about silly. Anyway I’m sure there were fans of the series and power to you people, honestly there were some cool things here.

Since I did mention that there are some cool things in the series I will step forward and list them in point form

1.The Team – This series may have not had the big three but it did have some awesome characters. The team consisted of Ant-man, Wasp, Tigra, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Falcon and Wonderman. For the people not comic savvy some of these guys are great in tech and hand to hand combat, search any of these characters up online if you are interested.

2. Cameos  – Now all the three did not make it into the series but Ironman and Captain America both had their own guest episodes helping the Avengers team with specific enemies respectfully.

3. The art – I may have hated the armor up thing but I will not deny the fact that the art was pretty cool and the designs were pretty solid. Sadly this can ‘t be said for the animation though.

Well I don’t remember everything for this series but I think I remembered enough to get this post up and I think I’ll enjoy myself later by watching the new Avengers movie which I recommend you buy if you are a super hero fan.

Avengers Assemble
