Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 52 of the Podcast of Oa with news and commentary about the Green Lantern universe. Bill continues to trumpet the potential for a Kyle Rayner/Carol Ferris relationship as Relic makes his presence felt in Green Lantern: New Guardians #22. Myron reports out on Green Lantern news announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and provides some critical commentary pointed at DC Entertainment and their film plans for the DC Universe. The second issue of Larfleeze fails to win over either Myron or Bill and we have comments from listeners that as always stimulate some fun conversation.

Episode 51 of The Podcast of Oa continues the conversation about the new era of Green Lantern comics with co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey. Relic enters the picture in Green Lantern: New Guardians #21 and the hosts have differing stances on the possibility of a romance between Kyle Rayner and Carol Ferris. Red Lanterns #21 is also a topic of discussion and listener feedback stimulates more dialogue about the role of Green Lantern in the DC movie universe. The initial issue of Larfleeze underwhelms both Myron and Bill and conversation then turns to the one-two punch of Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps.

On Podcast of Oa Episode 49 Co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli talk about Green Lantern #20, the issue that effectively wraps up Geoff Johns' historic run that has come to define a whole new era in Green Lantern's long and storied history. Myron and Bill share their favorite moments from the conclusion to the Wrath of the First Lantern story arc and how it sets the stage for the new creative teams which will step in to leave their mark on what has become one of DC Comics' tentpole franchises.

Co-host Bill Giancoli returns to the Podcast of Oa for our 48th episode. Myron Rumsey discusses recent events in the Green Lantern universe such as the recent SMGO.TV pledge drive and comments that Geoff Johns has made about big announcements coming regarding DC characters in film and television in July at the San Diego Comicon.

We talk about the 19th issues of both Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns as well as the ill timed Green Lantern Corps #20. Listeners who have not read the issue yet should skip this section since we talk about some of the details about the conclusion to the Wrath of the First Lanterns story that are recounted in the issue and it will spoil the ending to the story.
