Join the Corps!

I couldn't in good conscience call this blog "Citizen of Oa" and NOT mention the fact that a really great Green Lantern collectible is coming!  For the first time at a price point under $200, DC Comics Collectibles is offering a life-sized 1:1 scale Green Lantern Power Battery (i.e., the Lantern that gives GL his name.)  It comes with your very own Green Lantern Ring, and YES, THEY BOTH LIGHT UP WHEN YOU TOUCH THE RING TO THE LANTERN!

The Lantern Battery will be released this May, and is available for order NOW through your local comics shop -- mine is the best in the world, Comix Connection of Mechanicsburg, PA -- or through such e-tailers as Entertainment Earth.  Shop around; it's available in some places already for as much as $30 off the listed price of $199.95.  I have been wanting one of these for over a decade, but my loving wife has always objected because (a) it cost around $350 when you could even find one new (and lately more than double that on the auction sites,) and (b) "What would we do with it???"

This time, she said "yes."  I married a keeper.

"In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight.  Let those who worship evil's might beware my power:  Green Lantern's light!!!"
