LanternCast Episode #220 – The Collaborative Conway Crossover Caper!

Gerry Conway and the concern surrounding creator equity in comics have recently been in the news. So to show our support of the comics creator community, the LanternCast joined up with several other podcasters and bloggers to celebrate Gerry Conways contribution to our hobby! We here at the LanternCast put our own unique stamp on it by covering two great issues written by the man himself! What did we think? How much do we enjoy Conways take on Green Lantern? What do crazy crabs have to do with anything? Listen in and find out! Be sure to chime in on our voice-mail at 708-LANTERN!

Who created Caitlin Snow on #TheFlash? According to @DCComics, nobody

Two out of three of these characters were created by no one, according to DC Entertainment.

  • OMG – I’m so glad you had that little Hostess tangent, because this morning I was reading an old Batman & came across a fruit pie ad with Red Tornado, and wondered if there was some mandate forbidding the main character of the book to appear in one of those great ads.

    You saved me a little bit of research – thanks!

  • Hey, Guys!

    Just discovered your podcast via links to participants in the Conway Crossover Collaboration.
    The scope of Mr. Conway’s work (in comics and beyond!)is so vast, it really opens up the variety of podcasts that can participate in the event.

    I enjoyed the issues you covered this episode. ‘Brave and The Bold’ is a favorite title of mine. Specifically, because it pairs heroes, as incongruous as Batman and Green Lantern, together in a single adventure.

    I enjoy ‘Super-Team Family’ for the same reason.
    In that story, you mentioned Hal expressing the idea that he felt the Thanagarian Police Forces were better trained than the Green Lanterns Corps. I would have to agree with him.
    The Thanagarian Police Force is an occupation that one must train and qualify for. Whereas The Lantern Corps members are simply chosen based on degrees of fearlessness and morality. They begin with no formal training initially, and they basically learn on the job.
    So Hal’s comment may hold some validity.
    Just my two cents.

    I will be visiting the LanternCast archives to catch-up on what I’ve been missing.
