Somewhat perfunctory post.

I don't say this very often, but it's super-nice out right now. In the 80's, not a cloud in the sky. And next Friday I have a day off, and it'll probably be acid-hail, or cloudy with a 60% chance of Trump or something likewise terrible. Better enjoy it now, is what I'm getting at.

Today's scan is from 2006's Green Lantern Corps #4, "Unrelenting" Story and pencils by Dave Gibbons, inks by Michael Bair. Guy Gardner's attempt at a vacation is interrupted by the return of Bolphunga the Unrelenting; who seems to figure Guy will be easier to take down than Mogo. Meanwhile, other Lanterns have their own problems; like Soranik Natu, who has to tell a grieving mother her son died for the Corps; or Isamot Kol, who has to choose between his duty to the Corps and his somewhat unpleasant, possibly racist partner, or breeding. (Which sounds like a topic for some trashy daytime TV show: "I'm his partner, not his wingman!") I'm going to guess before looking it up: Isamot chose the Corps, then died in the background two events later...ooh, half right. Isamot was killed off in the movie, though.

Ooh, I have this, and the problems with Isamot and Soranik and Iolande notwithstanding, it is a bit of a hoot.

Oh Guy.
