Monday, Monday...What more can I say? To help in your efforts to grin and get through the first day of the work week (or what's left of it), here are a few things you might have missed over the weekend: • The New York Times released their Graphic Books Best Seller list for the week of April 4. BATMAN: RIP, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, JOKER, ALL STAR SUPERMAN v2, GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR v1 and BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS all made the list in some form. • Comic Book Resources and IGN both gave GREEN LANTERN #39 high marks. IGN also spoke to Geoff Johns about the issue, and the build-up to BLACKEST NIGHT:
IGN Comics: The Sinestro Corps War really took people by surprise and came out of leftfield for a lot of readers. Now that all eyes are on the Green Lantern franchise and Blackest Night, has it been daunting at all trying to live up to all the lofty expectations? Johns: No. I'm just telling the story the best I can. This is a story I always planned to tell. And it's grown organically, which is my favorite thing about it.• Newsarama has their regularly-scheduled preview of the latest TRINITY issue. They also spoke to J.M. DeMatteis about his upcoming work on the METAL MEN co-feature, which will be appearing in the pages of the new DOOM PATROL series this summer. • MYSPACE Comics previewed the latest issue of SUPERMAN/BATMAN. • Also at CBR, Chris Yost talk about his upcoming work on RED ROBIN.
