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..

In episode 67 of The Podcast of Oa co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey discuss the start of the latest Green Lantern story arc, Uprising. Along with parts 1 and 2 of Uprising that took place in Green Lantern #31 and Green Lantern Corps #31, conversation turns to the thirty first issues of Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns as well as the second issue of Cullen Bunn's Sinestro series which includes the long awaited showdown between Sinestro and Arkillo. Was it all that fans hoped it would be, or did it leave readers wanting more?

Myron and Bill share listener feedback including comments and results from the Facebook poll that asked listeners if they were Team Kyle or Team Hal when it came to Carol Ferris.

In episode 66 of The Podcast of Oa co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey cover a lot of ground, discussing the debut of Sinestro's standalone title in addition to four more books in the Green Lantern family, including the Green Lantern: New Guardians Annual #2 which begs the question, "Are you Team Kyle or Team Hal?" Clearly the hosts are on different pages when it comes to the Kyle/Carol relationship with Bill in favor of seeing where the story goes while Myron feels the relationship seems unorganic at best. 

 

 

Myron and Bill continue to chat about DC Entertainment's movie plans, this episode responding to listener emails about the topic as well as the official announcement that a Justice League movie is going to be made after the Man of Steel sequel. Myron also comments on the recent passing of fellow comics fan and podcaster Jamie D from Comic Geek Speak.

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are joined by two guests for this very special episode as we look back on Green Lantern: The Animated Series.  Series producers Giancarlo Volpe and Jim Krieg are reunited for episode 64 of The Podcast of Oa and share some memories about the show and let us know what they've been doing since the show went off air about a year ago.

Giancarlo Volpe, Jim Krieg

Myron comments that if the show were still airing we'd be at the end of the second season and asks both men what we'd have seen in the second season and where the show would have ended up going.  Jim reveals the facts behind why the show wasn't renewed and how the dollars and cents would make it difficult to produce direct to dvd CGI animated features.  We learn where the two are now and where fans can find the projects they are working on today.

In episode 63 of The Podcast of Oa co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey discuss the most recent issues taking place in the Green Lantern corner of the DC Universe. The return of Von Daggle and the ensuing battle between John Stewart's Green Lantern squad and the Durlan conjures images of '80's action films (in a good way!) and sparks Bill to praise the creators for continuing to spotlight the non-Earth members of the Corps.

Myron and Bill responds to emails from listeners who have two decidedly different opinions about Kyle Rayner. Talk then goes on to both Green Lantern: New Guardians #28 and Green Lantern #29 before Myron shares news about some upcoming convention appearance and asks the audience to help get the show on I Heart Radio.  Myron also announces a special lineup for the next episode, a Green Lantern: The Animated Series retrospective with show producers Giancarlo Volpe and Jim Krieg.
