Something for Everyone – Everything’s Coming Up Green!

By Leonard F Chikarason

Leonard was given five Comixology codes to give away for issue #1 of Subatomic Party Girls from his friend and writer of Subatomic Party Girls, Chris Sims. Leonard was not compensated for a review and his opinions are his own.

Welcome back to another edition of my pics for the best bets in comics this week. This week’s selection is something ending, something beginning (both Green) and something fun with a giveaway:

Green Lantern #20: It all ends here. Back in late 2004, Geoff Johns took over the Green Lantern franchise putting Hal Jordan back in the costume for the first time in over 10 years and bringing back Sinestro as the main baddie. It was the success of this run that DC made Green Lantern a big name, along side Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman. This also spawned a movie and cartoon line, of varying quality (I’ll say! – BE). None of this would have happened without that very first issue some eight plus years ago. This is Geoff Johns last issue on Green Lantern, wrapping up the plot threads and the current storyline, Wrath of the First Lantern. Also note, this is a giant sized issue, with a retrospective of Johns’ entire run, so be prepared to pay a bit extra!

The Green Team #1: Two of my favorite creators, Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani, get their first time ever in continuity book! This time, taking the name only of an obscure 70’s book, this story focuses on a group of teenage trillionaires trying to make the DC Universe a better place with money.

Subatomic Party Girls #1: The hottest pop power trio try to make history by being the first band to play on the moon. They fail, and have crazy space adventures! This is a digital only book from Monkeybrain Comics and has art by Erica Henderson and is written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims, who is a friend of mine. Since digital comics can be scary, here’s some incentive. You can enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of this post for your chance at one of five Comixology codes for issue #1 of this title. You will need to start an account at Comixology, if you don’t already have one, to redeem your gift!

Next week, we’ve got a print collection of a digital first book, a brand new X-Men book and a new book from Scott Snyder, current writer of Batman.
