Episode 71 of The Podcast of Oa was recorded live at the Twin Tiers Comic-Con in Elmira, New York on August 17th.  Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey moderated a panel with the artist on Green Lantern: Rebirth, Ethan Van Sciver.  Myron and Bill discuss the story's impact on the resurgence of the Green Lantern mythos ten years ago.  Van Sciver shares some insight on role H.E.A.T. played in bringing Hal Jordan back, his opinion of the books during the Kyle Rayner era, how he insisted that Sinestro be a part of the story and what he's doing now.  We also get a hint at Ethan's upcoming return to the Green Lantern Universe and the truth behind the rumors about he and Gail Simone on a Green Lantern graphic novel.

Red Sky at Night, Atrocitus' Delight

Podcast of Oa co-hosts, Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey, are back for episode 70 with more discussion about the most recent issues of the Green Lantern family of comics.  Myron and Bill both enjoy the character work in Sinestro #4 while the two had different experiences with Green Lantern: New Guardians #33.  The second and third installments of the Atrocities arc in the Red Lanterns series serve as a series high point and both hosts express their appreciation of Charles Soule's hard work.

Listener feedback continues to provide fuel for conversation and this episode the talk turns to the similarities between recent events in Green Lantern Corps and a classic Legion of Superheroes story.  Conversation turns again to the popular topic of the upcoming slate of DC Comics movies, especially in light of the reveal of Wonder Woman at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.  Bill and Myron also talk a bit more about the Twin Tiers Comic-Con which both will be appearing at, and recording a live episode of the show with the con's guest of honor, Ethan Van Sciver..
