Green Lantern Corps #38 Variant Cover

DC Comics continues its theme of charming variant covers. For January, 2015, they’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of The Flash. Green Lantern Corps takes part in this by featuring an awesome cover that is a throwback to Green Lantern (Volume 2) #87. That issue -released in 1971, written by Denny O’Neil, with art by Neal Adams- is the debut of Green Lantern John Stewart.

This cover is done by Bill Sienkiewicz. Click the lower link for a larger image:

Oa, by the way

With the recent announcement of the 2020 Green Lantern film, the support for seeing Green Lantern John Stewart for the starring role is rolling in. Check out the comments section in this IGN article:

There’s heavy John Stewart support. Here are some comments:

“LopezOne jarrodwjones • a day ago
I’m leaning towards Stewart myself, but only because its the best way to distance yourself from the first GL movie.
But I’d want Hal Jordan done right. And I’m not ok with him being the SECOND human GL as part of his background.

Ultimately, John Stewart is by no means a bad call. He’s quite awesome and the cartoon has a huge generation of fans following.”

I agree! Either is good even can use Kyle Rayner too but John Stewart seems it”

“LavsToSpooge • a day ago
Just out of curiosity, why do most people prefer John Stewart to Hal Jordan? I have never really followed the John Stewart story that much to know any better.. if anyone can explain.”

You know. I’m not against Cyborg on the League. I’m against how he got there. They trashed ALL of his history and put him there as the new kid on the block. That I don’t agree with. Vic from the Titans would have made a good JL member. But I’m sick of Hal Jordan being forced, down our throats lately. I like ALL the other Green Lanterns now alot more than him because of it. But I agree I’d rather have John on the team and J’onn added onto the team. They both need the live action treatment.”

Personally, this will always be my favorite “founding member” line-up:

Wonder Woman
Martian Manhunter
Green Lantern John Stewart
The Flash
Hawk girl”

That’s not even scratching the surface. I cannot post it all, because there’s too much. And it’s not just IGN. It’s Twitter, forums, website articles, and so forth.

DC and WB. I’m talking to you. I don’t care how much some of you may love Hal Jordan. You CANNOT deny the massive wave of support for John Stewart. You cannot. The fans are telling you what they want. Make the smart move.

Don’t let us down.
