Green Lantern Goes Cosmic: What's Up Wednesday w/ Geoffrey Thorne Pt. 3
What's up PoYiF fans?! It's Wilson and Lu coming at you with another What's Up Wednesday. This time we're doing a 3 part profile on Geoffrey Thorne the new writer for DC's Green Lantern and he's got some big plans!!! Hopefully we've convinced that Goeff was right for this book, because this is the part where we get to talk about the book! We think if Geoff gets his run we're going to look back at this issue and see all the groundwork being laid. There's a lot going on and a lot of questions to answer. Is this united planets thing really going to work? Green Lantern rings don't work on magic? What's a crux world and why is it so important? Where does Teen Lanterns Gauntlet come from? This book definitely has some far reaching consequences. There's a lot of details in this 40 page giant and I think as this run goes on we'll be checking back in for a while. Pick up Green Lantern #1 as soon as you can! Follow Geoff on Twitter: @GeoffThorne You can follow us @Poyifpod

Green Lantern Goes Cosmic: What's Up Wednesday w/ Geoffrey Thorne Pt. 1 (Remixed)
What's up PoYiF fans?! It's Wilson and Lu coming at you with another What's Up Wednesday. This time we're doing a 3 part profile on Geoffrey Thorne the new writer for DC's Green Lantern and he's got some big plans!!! In Part II or as Lu likes to call it, Part I remix, we discuss all the things we discussed in part 1, but through the lens of Geoffrey Thorne's Blackness. It's a story you've heard JUST NOT LIKE THIS. Did we mention that John Stewart is the center of his Green Lantern run? We think his Blackness is pretty important in that context. So its Geoff as a Black sci-fi fan,overcoming some struggles as a Black writer, and the intersection of the Thorne identity and his work. Hopefully by the end of this episode why we think that Geoff is the right writer for Green Lantern at this time. Pick up Green Lantern #1 as soon as you can!!!
