Green Lantern Corps #39 Review


on February 17, 2015

.Co is back with a review for Green Lantern Corps #39. I know I’m a little later than usual with this, but there’s been quite a bit going on. Give this a read. Green Lantern Corps is ending, but it’s going out with a bang:

“This issue earns a full five stars because I really can’t think of anything wrong with it at all. It’s not just that it’s competent, everything is exceptional. It is a very dense read that captivated me the whole way through and made me want to know more about what was going on. The villains are intriguing, the character designs are excellent and unique, all the characters are used to great effect, the art is astonishing, the coloring is extraordinary, and the script is solid and affecting. Lost Army is going to have to be unbelievably good to trump this title.”

Read more.

Stay tuned for more, folks. There’s been a lot of John Stewart information coming in, and there’s likely more to come.

Moving on, ComicVine.Com continues pitting John Stewart against other comic book characters in their weekly character battles. John has defeated Magneto and Ronan the Accuser. Now, he’s up against his toughest opponent yet – Beta Ray Bill.

The victor will be decided by vote, so be sure to head over to Comic Vine to support John Stewart. We have got to get together and campaign for this again, like how we did to get John to become character of the month. So spread the word via Twitter and whatever other social media you use. We can do this, John Stewart fans!

Lastly, the site Batman News has come to the conclusion that John is the likely cinematic Green Lantern. Check out the article and the reasons why, and continue supporting John in the comments. It never hurts to stand up for our favorite character and represent his fanbase.

Zack Snyder’s Green Lantern will likely be John Stewart

    Lots of cool news and merchandise surrounding John right now! I already tweeted about his Battle of the Week and posted about it on Tumblr. We definitely need to get the word out this week.

    • Desh Derringer

      If we can get a retweet from Van Jensen about the battle, I think that would help a lot.

  • Clyde

    The way that the polls look very early in the week at comicvine, it would appear to be a blow out, which I think is so disrespectful to the ring’s abilities and its user. But that’s okay, these jealous haters can have their day and bask in the glory of a John Stewart loss, but I’m smiling inside, because heroes win and lose battles everyday, but winning the war is getting John on the big screen and that’s the only battle that I ultimately care about.

    Good review!

    It looks like Hal Jordan is back in the JL book on the latest issue. Not surprising though.

    • Desh Derringer

      I had to say something to one moron. What he was saying was just too dumb :p

      • Hudson Faber

        I know, right? Thanks!

      • Hudson Faber

        Zeeguy part II and he has someone pretending he’s neutral when you only have to look here to see that he’s not: http://www.comicvine.com/articles/vote-for-the-next-character-of-the-month-2-15/1100-151108/

        • Steve Rogers

          What do you mean?

          • Hudson Faber

            Oh, some guy in this thread (http://www.comicvine.com/john-stewart/4005-10451/forums/zack-snyder-s-green-lantern-will-likely-be-john-st-1646024/#14) is making racist comments and attacking Desh, while another poster, who isn’t as bad, is saying the first poster is neutral and is trying to blame the hostility of Hal Jordan fans on John Stewart fans. Makes no sense. People like these are always derailing any positive John Stewart news. If they were really so confidant in Hal, they wouldn’t be doing that. Whatever. I’m more annoyed by them trying to pretend the false idea of “John Stewart is boring” is an objective fact. These are people who pretend they would give John a chance but never would, refusing to acknowledge all of the best parts of the character.

          • Steve Rogers

            Man, that sucks. But like Desh have said, expect the worst from those fans.

          • Hudson Faber

            Very true. I think Clyde said something similar about the five stages of (fan) grief. The world moves on.

          • Steve Rogers

            I like Clyde’s post on that subject.

            At least that poster seems to be a John fan. I don’t think there’s any reason trying to debate with another John fan though. There’s already a war between Hal and John going right now. We don’t need John fans turning against each other right now.

          • Hudson Faber

            True. Anyway, I hope WB settles this soon.

          • Steve Rogers

            Me too.

    Hey, did someone mention name? Lol. Yeah guys, after i remembered the effects on people via the 5 stages of grief, it makes their behavior all tear, which is why Desh doesn’t give a damn about their false opinions, if anything he pity’s them. Like he said, this is only the start, wait till an official word is posted. Sadly, some of these people posting negativity about John is finally revealing how they truly feel deep down. Some believe and are delusional to a fault to think that discrimination as it relates to race is over. But all its done since laws has been past, is lie beneath the surface. The character of John Stewart has been battling this since his creation. His character wad born because of the fact that comics lacked diversity. Its truly sad as a human race that we truly believe that the color of one’s skin makes another inferior or less important. Look at a box of crayons, they consist of all the colors of the spectrum (ROYGBIV), they are all different but yet brings something unique to the table. And when kids use these colors on paper. Together it makes art. And as a human race, together we make art. And when these Hal fans talk about John being Hal’s backup, they don’t mean he’s Scottie Pippen to Michael Jordan. What they mean is he’s Django and Hal is that guy sitting on his horse with a rifle and a whip.

    Its good to see you guys on Screenrant making your voices heard. I was about to post it on here, before i saw some familiar names. Lol. Lastly, these next few months will get ugly. Desh is prepared for racial charged posts and things getting out of hand. These laws that were past never ended bigotry, prejudice, racism, bias, inequality, segregation, sexism, and overall discrimination. The only thing these laws did was put a band aid over a gun shot wound.

      Hey Clyde, your quote was picked in the battle of the week results. Congrats!

      • Clyde

        Yeah i read it. It’s good to know that at least one of us could post something that was acknowledged to defend our guy even in defeat. However there is an upside. Its great to hear from Van Jensen and earlier today a blogger srnt me a message that i made his day with a post that i did 9 months ago on “we got this covered”. It feels good to make a positive impact on someone when you post what they’re thinking but may be reluctant to say it for the fear that they may be alone or whatever the reason. Well on to week 4.
