Celebrated Writer Joins Forces with Fan-Favorite Artist Bryan Hitch for All-New Ongoing Series Featuring the DC Universe’s Winged Wonder
This June, Robert Venditti (THE FLASH, GREEN LANTERN, HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS) continues his exclusive agreement with DC by writing a new HAWKMAN ongoing series with artist Bryan Hitch (THE AUTHORITY, JUSTICE LEAGUE).
SPOILER ALERT: The below article discusses twists and plot points from the first issue of Damage. We suggest reading the issue before continuing the article…
The New Age of DC Heroes is finally here and it's kicking things off with a VERY literal bang with DAMAGE #1 exploding onto the scene this week with all the grace and subtlety of a giant, monstrous wrecking ball. But then again, what else could you expect? His name is also his job description.
Even if you're not a big Lantern fan, you probably know a thing or two about the rivalry between the Green and Yellow corps. Like galactic oil and water, the lights of willpower and fear have been butting heads across the cosmos for a long time. But there's more to the war between these two colors than just opposing ideologies—this bad blood is personal.
And no one understands just how personal it really is better than Soranik Natu.
Do you think they have apples on Korugar? Maybe not, but when it comes to its most famous resident and his daughter, the only thing we can say is that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
Most of the time, when you talk about a specific Lantern Corps, you’re talking about...well, a bunch of people wielding the same color ring. That’s kind of implied in the name, and it’s true for all of the colors on the emotional spectrum.
...Except for one of them.
In this week’s issue of HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS, John Stewart and Hal Jordan need the help of the Sinestro Corps to save the universe from an unidentified threat.
Meanwhile, Sarko has located a crucial source of the Corps power. Will Hal and the Green Lantern Corp be able to stop Sarko from destroying everything? Find out more in HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #20, from writer Robert Vanditti, and artists Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Taragona, Tomeu Morey (colors), and Dave Sharpe (letters)!
Before I even get started, I want you to know that we’re going THERE with tonight’s column. So if you haven’t watched this week’s Flash yet, get out of here until you do. Trust me, MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD.
Okay, you poozers, put the kids to bed and find your stomach. This week’s edition of This Just Happened is not for the squeamish! If you faint at the sight of blood, stop reading now and go watch the new DC Super Hero Girls movie trailer or something.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t we just write about Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps here in This Just Happened?
Why, yes, we did. But we’re writing about it again because the series is just that awesome, and this week’s new issue was nothing short of breathtaking.
