Green Lantern Corps #31 Preview

ComicVine has an exclusive preview of Green Lantern Corps #31, which is part 2 of the “Uprising” story arc.
I really like that role call bit, and it’s great to see R’amey Holl and Bloobert Cob. Putting John Stewart in a sea of bizarre aliens is exactly what I want to see! I’m very happy to see Bernard Chang back again. We can always count on a stellar issue with the team of Marcelo Maiolo, Bernard Chang, and Van Jensen.
Pick this one up May 14th.

“I mean it looks good. And if we know anything about television shows, if it looks good, it has a much better chance of happening.”
Fans have been suggesting that “Diggle” may be a nickname given to John during his time in the military, and his true last name is Stewart. It would certainly be cool to have John Stewart appearing regularly on a new television show again, and at the very least, this theory helps keep the character’s name in the public conscious. The media still clearly cares about the character, as he’s gotten much buzz and attention lately, and many people in the television and movie businesses have directly addressed him, which is always a good sign.
