Oh man, these should be great! Awesome find ROR! :)
Highball - 2/10/2011, 8:37 AM
I'm looking forward to those! The Abin Sur one really has got my interest :)
Should fit in nicely with my Green Lantern collection!
Wish Ivan Reis could have done one of them.

Has there been any mention of who's doing the voices for the alien characters yet? I think i'd be awesome if they got the actors from First Flight to reprise their roles because for some reason I really liked John Loroquette as Tomar-Re

wow!! can't wait to read this!! nice find Ror!!

More merch less info on the movie,dont think we have seen any different images away from the trailer,where is it all!
dahamma - 2/10/2011, 8:53 AM
Actually, Intruder is kinda right, where's the actual MOVIE info? i'll take anything interviews, pics whatever! lol

I don't like these "prequel" comics (for Cap either). We have like 60 years of "prequel" comics prior to this film. If it's important to the plot and it should be in the film. Bring on trailer 2 or some real photos of the film. I want to want to be excited and WB is making itt hard. Just 1 photo of RR as GL using the ring (as opposed to just pointing his fist at us) to make a giant sword or chainsaw or something cool with the ring would make everyone geek out.

I have to agree the Sinestro comic would be worth a look.
Highball - 2/10/2011, 9:07 AM
@ Gattsu - I was thinking about that some time ago... went to have a look on imdb (i know, not reliable), they mention one particular voice for G'Hu and list Paul Parducci as the voice actor. He's done some video games and Tv Series work so it's not much of a stretch.

No mention of the others though.

AWSOME!!!!! I've been wanting prequels for a long time.
JaySchluffy - 2/10/2011, 9:26 AM
Geoff Johns is writing 2 of them. Count me in!
ReillyParker - 2/10/2011, 9:49 AM
Geoff Johns is writing Sinestro and Hal Jordan, I'm good with that.
Angelus - 2/10/2011, 9:57 AM
Cool!
RedeyeJedi - 2/10/2011, 10:57 AM
I hope these will set a more serious tone for the story.
The trailer just didn't do it for me, but I'll stay optimistic.
StrangerX - 2/10/2011, 11:22 AM
Seriously when did comic books become the latest movie gimmick.
dickmastaflex - 2/10/2011, 11:30 AM
im with intruder, i have yet to see anything good....i would like a nice finished cgi pick of hal
HellsHammer - 2/10/2011, 11:40 AM
@intruder
damn take it easy dude. Comic book movies shouldnt be taken so serioulsy. just sit back relax and enjoy the show. These movies are just a means of Entertainment. nothing to get worked up over bud. If you expect every comic movie to be the best one then i promise you that your gonna be let down everytime. Just go in with an open mind and no expectations.
Nemeres - 2/10/2011, 11:54 AM
Fellas, you have yet to see something good the same way you've yet to see something *actually* bad. Let me remind you, you still haven't seen the actual film. The days are still coming when we'll be bombarded with GL marketing like it's the elections, and then the first trailer will seem like a distant joke, as will your premature reactions :)
TorturedXGenius - 2/10/2011, 12:39 PM

SWonder916 - 2/10/2011, 1:49 PM

TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 2/10/2011, 4:40 PM
I'll stick with Captain America and Thor comics. But I'll buy my 1 year old a hat and ring!!! And the DVD when he's older.

A prequel comic to Green Lantern...What's it call Hal Jordan?
TruFaith - 2/13/2011, 8:32 PM
I hope the art style and character designs are like that of the Young Justice cartoon.
cbcurry - 2/15/2011, 4:48 PM
As long as there is plenty of action I'll watch.
