No, seriously.

Green Lantern

Cry for Justice is the new All-Star Batman and Robin. Your argument is invalid.

Throwing female heroines under the bus for cheap titillation? Killing DC’s only male African hero to give a talking gorilla some shine…when there are hundreds of talking gorillas in the DC universe? I can’t even get mad. I don’t take anything in this book seriously—at all. I’m assuming that none of this is going to carry over into other books. Long story short, I’m letting a lot slide simply because the book is hilarious. Unintentionally? Probably. It doesn’t make it any less entertaining. Okay, that’s my last word on it. Really.
