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

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.
