Episode 81 of The Podcast of Oa kicks off a month long weekly series of Green Lantern content covering the February and March comics.  Co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli start out with Feburary's Green Lantern #39 and move on to the climactic issue 40 where writer Robert Venditti makes a big change to the series and sets the title off in a new direction once Convergence runs its cycle.  Myron also makes a prediction about what's about to happen in the Green Lantern Corps series and discusses recent Internet chatter about the casting of Green Lantern for the upcoming DC/WB movie series.

Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli are back for another episode of The Podcast of Oa.  In episode 80 we catch up on all the January books in the Green Lantern family, plus we talk about Tyrese Gibson's campaign to be the cinematic Green Lantern.  Myron also addresses Ryan Reynold's recent comment about there being no script for the 2011 Green Lantern theatrical film when he auditioned for the part of Hal Jordan.

Note: While we strive to keep this show family friendly, occasionally we let a color metaphor to two slip by and this episode is one of those times.  For that reason we are labeling this episode explicit even though the language isn't that "bad".

Van Jensen Returns!

Green Lantern Corps writer Van Jensen joins co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli for a epsiode 79 of The Podcast of Oa.  We talk about the announcement from DC regarding the cancellation of the title and Jensen reflects on his run with the series as well as some of his other projects.

We talk about the differences between Carol Ferris and Fatality's time as Star Sapphires and whether there's more in store for John Stewart's relationship with Yrra.  While Van cannot speak to what work he will be doing for DC post-Convergence or what the future of the Green Lantern Corps holds, he is optimistic about the future.

GodHead, Episode 4

 

Episode 77 of The Podcast of Oa continues our ongoing coverage of the seventeen issue GodHead event.  This episode includes the second half of our conversations about Act 2 as well as the first half of the third act.  Co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli also discuss the announcement that three of the comics in the Green Lantern family will end their runs in March of 2015 just as DC Comics launched their two month Convergence event, speculating about what book(s) might replace Red Lanterns, Green Lantern: New Guardians and Green Lantern Corps.  Myron also shares his perspective about what might happen if DC decides it's time to reduce the number of humans sharing the Green Lantern mantle.

Our coverage of GodHead, the next big Green Lantern event which features the first major appearance of the New 52 version of the New Gods, continues with episode 75 of The Podcast of Oa.  Covered in this episode is the second half of the first act, including Green Lantern: New Guardians #35, Red Lanterns #35 and Sinestro #6.  Co-host Bill Giancoli provokes more response from Myron Rumsey about the Carol/Kyle romance and both hosts love Sinestro's gambit to strike first blood against the forces of Highfather while finding the Red Lanterns issue one you could skip and not miss anything.  The recent Warner Brothers DC movie slate is also a topic of conversation.

Strap yourselves in for the next three months as we begin our coverage of GodHead, the next big Green Lantern event which features the first major appearance of the New 52 version of the New Gods.  Co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli use this first episode to provide a little history about the New Gods before jumping into their coverage of the first three issues in the story.  Myron is surprised by how quickly Highfather gets his hands on the power rings and both he and Bill comment on how handily they defeat the ring bearers.

After last episodes interview with Ethan Van Sciver The Podcast of Oa gets caught up with all of the August Green Lantern titles as co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey run through all the latest issues in the Green Lantern family of comics. Both hosts agreed that many of the issues felt like a little rushed as the creative teams needed to wrap up any current storylines before taking part in DC's September Futures End event and then plunging into the Green Lantern/ New Gods event, Godhead. Myron poses some major questions about how the Red Lantern civil war ended and both hosts were underwhelmed with the conclusion to the Psions story in Green Lantern: New Guardians, but both enjoyed seeing Hal Jordan get to enjoy a little slice of home in this month's issue of Green Lantern
