Episode 43 is live!
THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR GREEN LANTERN, IN THEATERS NOW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
It's the Made Of Fail Third Anniversary show! Thank you so much to our fans, friends and crew for making us what we are. :)
Thanks this episode are due to Sterling Gates and Lewis "Linkara" Lovhaug from DC Comics and Atop the Fourth Wall, respectively. You can find them on Twitter at @sterlinggates and @Linkara19.
Sterling's CREEPY AS FUCK "leave now" pic is here.
Be sure to watch the full trailer for Suburban Knights, coming June 27th to ThatGuyWiththeGlasses.com to celebrate their third anniversary! (Shut up, we have a smaller budget. :P)
Kevin's review of the epic Pregnesia can be found right here!
Kevin's recommended webfiction:
For a good laugh, read Topless Robot's Cleolinda-esque recap of the best scenes from Green Lantern!
If you're itching to learn the stories behind other members of the Green Lantern Corps, pick up Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, which features 100% more Nathan Fillion. And while you're at it, check out Ryan Reynolds as Monty in Waiting, which is the Office Space for the restaurant industry.
So, DC Comics is rebooting its universe again...sort of. Read the Bob Harras/Eddie Berganza interview at Newsarama here, MightyGodKing has thrown in his opinion (which brings up a lot of great points), and you can read Lewis' original blog post about the whole thing right here. Also, here's iFanboy's Definitive Guide To the DC Comics Reboot, which lists titles and creators.
Also, this article from GeekDad is a very thoughtful piece about DC's upcoming digital distribution.
Oh, and yeah, Rob Liefeld was totally in a Levi's ad. We weren't kidding.

"Freesia-scented hair", Dayna? Once Twilight is in you, it never leaves, does it.
I've never read any Green Lantern comics and I had no problem at all following the story. I also wish we saw more o the Corps and the training, more of the scope of it, but my biggEst problem, as it was with Ghost Rider, is Blake Lively's casting. Not only is she too young to be believable as Carol professionally, she's a decade too young to be the same age as Ryan Reynolds. And sleeping with a "childhood friend" who was a child when you were a teen is creepy.
I think if they saved Parallax for the sequel like Kevin mentioned they could have spent more developing him as the embodiment of Fear.
I'll be honest, as a non-comic-book reader (the last time I followes a series was Witchblade almost a decade ago), I'll be honest, the reboot/relaunch has me considering trying to gwt into it. I would love an episode (or special blog post) from Dayna with a rundown of writers and artists, and maybe characters too.
Dayna, you make me want to play DnD. You go on with your geek-crack-peddling self.

Well, like Lewis said, he's the one who can actually afford to do that
, so you can watch his website for it in September. As far as just a list or whatnot, that's here.

Legion of Nothing/In My Daydreams
I'm amused to find my web fiction (The Legion of Nothing) linked on the website. It's not perfect, but I'm hoping Kevin is enjoying it.
It can only be a welcome break from Pregnesia.

Re: Legion of Nothing/In My Daydreams
I actually got linked to it by my friend (who writes Awakenings) and have it in my backlog to catch up on later! She raves about it, so I'm looking forward to working my way through your archives.
And yeah, there's a reason I'm slow on the next part of Pregnesia. *shudder*
Hal Jordan: Space AI-Core.
Happy anniversary! I'm glad there was such positive response to the Green Lantern movie, because it was enjoyable. The only thing is now with so many superhero movies and great origin stories like the first Iron Man, you really need to step up your game, and even though Green Lantern was good, it wasn't spectacular.
