JUSTICE RIDERS #1 by Dennis Culver for the DC Fifty-TOO! project
Dennis says: I always loved the “Superheroes in the Old West” idea of the Elseworlds Justice Riders by Chuck Dixon and JH WIlliams and thought it would be neat to have the “Justice” team legacy stretch even further back than the JSA. (read more…)

Yes they light up when you put them on! Rad!
The Scott Pilgrim Corps! Awesome!
The Pilgrims Corps: It just makes sense
It’s awesome because it makes total sense
Would that make Kim Pine, Stephen Stills, and Young Neil, Guy John and Kyle?
Here’s the first image released from the upcoming Green Lantern film of the alien Green lantern Corps trainer Kiliwog! Pretty awesome! Thanks to ComicBookMovie.com for the pic!
If you haven’t seen the cartoon Batman the Brave and the Bold then you are really missing out. It is based more on the campiness of the Adam West version of the character than the gritty realism of the Christian Bale portrayal. Every week Batman must team-up with a different character to thwart the villains dastardly deeds. It’s a lot of fun and the character rotation keeps the show fresh.
DC comics publishes a monthly title of the series based on the same premise. Issue #19 entitled Emerald Knight sees Batman becoming a member of the Green Lantern Corps. to rescue his friend Hal Jordan (Green lantern of Earth). If you are a fan of comics then you will find the story filled with great cameos, if not then it does not bog down the simple yet very entertaining storyline. The thing that I like most about this series is that they are all stand-alone stories. Meaning you do not have to know the series continuity to enjoy the book. The book is great for kids 7+ as well as adults, and has minor cartoon style violence and no bad language.
It gets 8 Batarangs out of 10.
EW has released the cover to their upcoming Comic-Con Special. And it’s… interesting.
Let me just say that I am a giant nerd when it comes to GL, everything DC for that matter but GL in particular. I think this film could be huge for DC, the casting of Ryan Reynolds is great, he definitely captures GL’s (Hal Jordan for you nerds ;)jump first mentality. But this costume is not what I had expected at all. You can see they are going for a light-based organic look, but I’m afraid he will just look like a naked green guy flying around. Much like Mystique in the X-Men films. But green not blue, and male not female, you get the point.
I do like that they didn’t mess with the symbol, and the ring looks good. I can see now why they are going heavy cgi with the costume it looks as if light will constantly seep out of it. I hope he doesn’t look like a green Tron character.
They did do something different with his eyes, they decided against going all white which was probably a good choice, but his eyes are kind of pale and glowy. I like it in the pic we’ll see how it looks in the movie.
I think the thing that I hate most about this pic is his bushy hair. He’s got a bit of hair helmet.
I don’t hate the costume, but I don’t love it either. And I so wanted to love it.

According to ComicBookMovie.com this is an official synopsis for the currently in production Green Lantern Movie.
Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
Campbell directs “Green Lantern” from a screenplay by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg, story by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim, based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.
The film also stars Blake Lively (upcoming “The Town,” TV’s “Gossip Girl”) as the spirited Carol Ferris, a test pilot and the heir apparent to her father’s aviation company; Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education,” “Flightplan”) as scientist Dr. Hector Hammond; Mark Strong (“Sherlock Holmes”) as Sinestro, Jordan’s powerful mentor in the Green Lantern Corps; Jay O. Sanders (“Revolutionary Road”) as Carl Ferris, Carol’s aircraft designer dad; Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Abin Sur, Jordan’s alien predecessor; Taika Waititi (TV’s “The Flight of the Conchords”) as flight navigator Tom Kalmaku, Hal’s good friend and confidante; Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as enigmatic government scientist Amanda Waller; and Academy Award® winner Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”) as Hector’s influential father, Senator Robert Hammond. The film is being produced by Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”) and Greg Berlanti (upcoming “Life As We Know It”).
Herbert W. Gains and Andrew Haas serve as executive producers. Geoff Johns and Lucienne Papon are co-producing. The film’s behind-the-scenes creative team is led by a number of Academy Award® winners, including director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), production designer Grant Major (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”), and costume designer Ngila Dickson (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”), as well as Oscar®-nominated editor and longtime Campbell collaborator, Stuart Baird (“Gorillas in the Mist,” “Superman”). The film’s visual effects are being overseen by Oscar®-nominee Kent Houston (“The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen,” “Casino Royale”).
The film is currently scheduled for release in 3D and 2D on June 17, 2011. “Green Lantern” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. ’
