This would’ve been a lot easier to swallow if they had just chosen John Stewart to be a White Lantern.

you guys have made my day week and month…..hells yes!!!!…..its got me…..Lanterns….and thermal shirts under t-shirts…the best
chris is curt got me at a bus stop another one of those “backgrounds that make no sense”?
The chest logo is a nice touch.
wow….. that’s all i’ve got. just “wow”..
Joe – Curt just said Joe’s sitting at a bus stop. I think the idea was that that’s a good place to have people just randomly walking by.
HI-LARIOUS! Living abroad (I’m living on top of a woman), I’ve fallen out of the comics game. Does the White Lantern really have a hood like that or was that added for what the kids call “Comedic Effect”?
Disturbing, but kinda funny.
Well, now I know what Joe has GOT to be for Halloween this year. Better get started on that costume dude! Oh wait….you already have a hat like that.
Thomas – Thanks, man. When Curt said, “Joe becomes a White Lantern” the immediate panic that hit me was, “Oh shit, I’m going to have to come up with a new Lantern Corps costume/logo.”
Being the comic nerd that I am trying to come up with something that looks like it could possibly, maybe be in that same universe and sorta match what the other Corps’ costumes look like was really important to me. I don’t know how well I succeeded, but I did the best I could.
Josh – You are a funny man.
As to your question, there are no White Lanterns in the “real” comics. There are Green, Red, Yellow, Orange, Blue, Indigo, Violet, and Black.
My idea was that it’s supposed to look like the classic GL mask expanded up to a hood.
Markus – Only kinda funny?
Also, for those who don’t know, Curt meant this guy, not this guy.
Seriously. Most awesome.
They are going to end up doing a White or Pure Light corp or something, where all the spectrum colors unify to battle the Black Corp. That just makes this all the more awesome.
That is hilarious.
Thanks for the clarification, Chris. Living in the desert with the strict internet police we have here, it’s hard to fact-check the various “web-toons” I read online.
Also, with all these various colored Lanterns running around, it makes me fondly remember Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. What do you think the possibility is of all of them getting giant Lantern “zords” that join together to form an even bigger Lantern?
Chris-I didn’t mean any harm, I’m just sensitive when it comes to Klan jokes. I understand the sentiment, and I get it, but in this post-Imus climate, it feels a little weird.
Chris – Wow, if they do end up doing some kind of White Lanterns it’ll look like they’re ripping us off.
Keith – Thanks a lot, mate. I’m sorry I’ve been watching a lot of Dr. Who.
Pat! – That’s as many exclamation points as letters in that sentence. That’s how you know it’s good.
Markus – I’m glad we didn’t offend you.
Ha! That is the first reference I’ve ever seen to a “post-Imus climate”. Classic.
Why have I not commented on this comic yet!? It’s one of the funniest
[...] how Green Lantern is susceptible to the color yellow. Yawn. With Let’s Be Friends Again, the joke almost requires that you be familiar with the whole Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night saga, a [...]
Supposedly, the rings are supposed to find people who are well suited to wear them. Having the ring find a guy who believes in racial equality (which he apparently does, as he doesn’t seem very happy) misses that key aspect.
I mean, I am willing to bet not every ring was well suited for the one who recieved it, but judging from the look on his face that is one of the less appropriate choices the ring could have made. I get that actual racists would not be pure, but you would think that said racists would make a ring that people like them would be well suited to wear.
Sorry for over-analyzing.
the ring isn’t actually racist, the oath is just easily misconstrued.
and over-analyzing is ok. we’re comic book fans. we do that.
Sorry. Over serious nerds like me ruin everything
Crap, posted to early. Too many posts
Anyways, I thought it was a KKK version of Sinestro Corps or something, an evil group that made their own ring. Sorry about extra posts, it won’t happen again.
Revolverhawk – First of all, awesome name. Second of all, feel free to post as much as you like, dude. It’s like Curt said, we’re comic book fans. Over-analyzing things is what we do.
[...] Speaking of rings, DC finally announced the White Lantern ring giveaway which everyone kinda expected, including me. And these jokers. [...]
[...] DC. When publishing your spread of already socially awkward White Lanterns, I’m glad you made sure that all the White Lanterns were, well, white. [...]
…of course, the fact that a lot of minority or mixed-race DC superheroes and side characters have been violently killed or disdainfully replaced recently only makes this even funnier…
[...] I may quote Joe Martini (aka Martiniman from the comments) (aaka this guy), “A comic about Curt & Chris readin’ comics? Man. No one’s ever done that [...]
[...] So this week will be special as exclusively on VGLounge.com, we will run a 7-day feature spotlighting iconic and obscure videogame characters and where they will fit in each Lantern corps. Each corps will discuss only 5 members and be revealed in the famous: ROY G BIV order. This means that beginning tomorrow, the “Red Lantern Corps of Gaming” will be featured at 12pm, Orange Lanterns on Tuesday and so on. Just to get this out of the way, we will not do a corps for the two newest lanterns in comics, the black and white lanterns. [...]
Just found this site and I must say I cracked up even more than I did at the actual strip when I saw the comments about there not being a White Lantern Corp
