  1. As far as children or teenage Green Lanterns, there was Kai-Ro from Batman Beyond who was a child and part of the future Justice League. I’m still surprised that character has not been brought into the main continuity in some way. You have a Tibetan child Green Lantern who was given the ring after John Stewart where he was raised in a Buddhist temple. I’ve heard Far Sector is great, but I’ve never read it and I also like Teen Lantern.

  2. Heroes Reborn issue #1 seems nothing like the original.
    “Why would I need to read that- I know what that is.”
    I don’t think in this case it is what you think it is.
    Much like a 2016 Chevy Impala isn’t a 64 Impala.
    The real question, regardless of name, is is it good?
    Ehh- not sure.

  3. I am shocked that Josh is staying with the Vader comic which isn’t good right now. The reveals with Luke’s hand and Exegol where Vader was aware of it makes TROS worse than it already was. They need to quit trying to fix TROS and explain everything since nothing makes it better. Vader as a Force ghost when he is Anakin again deciding to not tell Luke about Exegol after ROTJ makes that character. The current Star Wars run isn’t very good either.

    Only the Charles Soule Vader run was consistently very good other than that first arc out of the Marvel Star Wars ongoing series. Doctor Aphra is fun as long as you ignore her surviving get let out of an air lock by Vader making Vader look like an idiot and the fan fiction evil R2 and C-3PO. It still stinks that the quality of writing for the books and comics dropped so much since Disney bought Star Wars. The comics have never been worse than in this era. John Ostrander is available and would be better than anyone else writing these comics as the best Star Wars comics writer ever. I know John Jackson Miller and Haden Blackman won’t do it with their current positions. It’s incredibly sad.
