Thanks OP.

reminder that this series was cancelled because /co/ doesn't exist as a paying demographic

Most of /co/ won't even touch this because Kyle's the main character.

Did they stick his fucking ring in his neck?
That's pretty hardcore
>>
>>77719901
>>
>>77719917
The Viceroy was wearing the white ring in issue 1, so I doubt it.
>>
I thought it was a bomb in his neck? keep him aroudn suicide squad style

lies

>>
>>77719851
Kyle fans either don't know he's in it or don't like the way he's written/treated in it for various reasons, and people who don't like Kyle have no reason to read it although I read it in spite of him and boy am I glad I did, it's fixing a lot of the problems I've had with him lately
>>
>>77719851
I don't touch it because Andy Khouri is one of the editors
Fuck that guy nigga
>>
>>77720102
how petty
>>
Loved this issue. Also, the art was especially beautiful this time around. I mean, just look at the colors on the second panel of >>77719851. Damn pretty.
>>
>>77720075
I know. And on top of that the places that might make a big difference (tumblr/reddit) are scared to touch the book because it deals with the subject of terrorism and doesn't treat the issue as a black and white thing.
>>
>>77719961
I love space R.O.B
>>
>>77720158
This whole issue is a nice parallel of what happened in issue 1, now that I think about it.
>>
>>77719806
It got uncancelled because enough people complained, which is something /co/ is good at
>>
>>77720064
I know its something Kyle hasnt done much before but I love the fact hes fallen back on religion.
Its nice seeing a Christian character portrayed in 2015 that isnt
a) A member of a psuedo-Westboro baptist church cult
b) A nutso that thinks god told him to kill people
>>
>>77720190
>>
>>77720158
I've also seen people complaining that it's anti-religion which, how much harder can you miss the fucking point?

>>77720207
it got uncancelled at 7 so they can cancel it again later at 12 because despite the fan outcry the sales didn't change notably at all, it's still selling as bad as ever which is a fucking crime
>>
>>77720226
>Christian
Nigga, he is mexican so that means he is a catholic
>>
>>77720234
Is it bad that I'm hoping they mean the whole bomb thing literally? Using a White Lantern as a nuke would be a fuckin' spectacular sight.
>>
>>77720256
Doesnt Christianity encompass both Catholicism and protestant
>>
>>77720140
Yeah, comicsalliance is pretty awesome, who is your favorite editor?
Mine is Laura Hudson, she was awesome and kicked a lot of ass
>>
>>77720241
>the sales didn't change notably at all, it's still selling as bad as ever which is a fucking crime
Physical sales wouldn't have a noticeable change until this issue or the next since retailers order stuff at least a couple months in advance.

But yeah digitally it's not doing much better than it was before. And I don't really expect physical sales to get any higher than 15k anymore.
>>
>>77720234

>>77720315
nice bait

>>77720315
The books Khouri edits are good you fucking ding dong, who cares what shitty website he worked at before DC

it's not like he worked on Wizard
>>
>>77720353
>>
>>77720158

What a fuck yeah page.

Good issue, thank god it wasn't the finale. i feel like we haven't gotten much of kyle's religion which is strange considering how it effects the rest or do i not remember early issues?
>>
>>77720391
>>
>>77720241

>so they can cancel it again later at 12

I think everyone assumed the uncancelling was to let King finish his story in the 12 issues every book was promised.
>>
>>77720315
You show up every OM thread to complain about Khouri. Why? What could you possibly be getting out of being told to fuck off every month?
>>
>>77720377
Wizard was shitty but nowhere near the shtty level of comicsalliance
Wizard was like Playstation Magazine
Comicsalliance is the kotaku of comic books
>>
>>77720419
it only came up in one earlier issue iirc, although Kyle's been wearing a cross necklace most of the time

There's been a lot of touching on Lantern's religions lately, King brought it up with Kyle and Hal, Jensen brought John's up in GLC and Soule brought Baz's up in Red Lanterns
>>
>>77720454
>>
>>77719961
The ring in issue 1 looked handmade out of wood and twine or something, this looks closer to the actual thing.
Or was that the actual White Ring?

Is that all?
>>
>>77720509
>>
>>77720598
Post yfw Kyle knows.
>>
>>77720511
In a later issues it shows that Kyle had to give his white ring in order to be allowed to enter the area to the Viceroy and he puts it on. The red colored White Ring from issue 1 was probably a mistake on part of the colorist.
>>
>>77720298
Not him but yes, it encompasses both.
>>
>>77720563
Says the faggot who's triggered every time there's an Omega Men storytime.
>>
>>77720241
Yeah, it makes an interesting divide between praising those who use their faith to find their inner strength, and condemning those who exploit religion to profit off the gullible
>>
>>77720298
Depends on who you ask.
>>
>>77720377
What else does he edit?
>>
>>77720256
He's catholic because he's irish. He didn't even know he was mexican.
>>
>>77720971
Constantine, Martian Manhunter, Dr. Fate, JLU I think
>>
>>77721001

I think he co-edits Suicide Squad too
>>
>>77720993
Seems he does now.

Amazon has a listing for The Omega Men TPB.

kek
>>
>>77720497
Is John just generic Protestant? I've never seen his religion brought up before.
>>
>>77721073
yeah I think that's what they said
>>
>>77721053
Amazon's early content info is always a little off. They'll fix that when DC does the resolicit for the trade. Originally the first vol was only going to collect 1-6 but I guess they're collecting everything in one.
>>
poor Broot ;_;
>>
boop
>>
>>77719716
dawwww, look at baby Tigorr! he's so cute
>>
>>77720993
But he was talking in spanish in the first issues
And isn't the mexican/ irish Miguel Spider-man 2099?
>>
>>77723972
Yes

Kyle wasn't originally introduced as half Mexican, that was a retcon like 8 years into his existence that went mostly forgotten
>>
>>77720158
Was this splashpage shown to describe the contrast between their religions or something?

Was King happy that he managed to get the 12 issues back?

Daily reminder that Broot died for our sins. Press F to pay respects.
>>
>>77725796

um, yeah. Why wouldn't he be? He gets to tell the story he wanted to now
>>
>>77725796
I'd assume so, I'm pretty sure he said he was grateful back when they un-cancelled it
>>
Where's the howling commandos storytime
>>
>>77720628
I'm kind of torn on whether or not he's actually onto them for real, or if he just got suckered by Kalista and he actually wants to help her

I hope it's the latter I want him to smooch Kalista
>>
>>77725892
Storytime it yourself.
>>
>>77725796
Probably. Even outside of him being a creator who wants to craft a good project, don't they get paid on page count?
>>
>>77725895
Solicit for next issue says Kyle's going after Kalista and Primus for revenge.
>>
>>77726009
no it doesn't?

>The Omega Men’s mysterious plan for Kyle Rayner comes to fruition as the former Green Lantern is forced to make the biggest decision of his life—one that could cost millions of lives. Secrets are finally revealed in an epic climax that will change the balance of power in the DC Universe.

and that's the solicit from when it was listed as the final issue so King probably had to rewrite it anyway
>>
>>77726027
and here's the solicits for 8 and 9

> The Omega Men are back as their space-spanning series continues! The team’s mysterious plan for Kyle Rayner reaches its shocking endgame when the outlaws bypass the energy shield surrounding the off-limits world of Voorl! In doing so, will they discover the true cost of life in Vega?

> With her grand plans for Kyle Rayner completely shattered, Princess Kalista finds herself with no choice but to follow the former Green Lantern into the deadly heart of the Citadel to persuade the Viceroy to do the impossible: make peace with the Omega Men.

I don't know what you're talking about anon

>>77720158
Man, I really like the Omega Prayer. What do you guys think it sounds like?

Schedule so far for the second half of Tom King's The Omega Men:

>>
>>77727469
>it's a fourth week book now

I understand why but it still hurts

https://twitter.com/andykhouri/status/669726574309064704
>>
>>77727484
>I understand why
Because by being uncancelled the creative team has to revise the story.
>>
>>77724076
I love how this series slowly teases out details about the Vega system.
>>
>>77723972
Irish and Mexican is actually a fairly common combination. I knew three of them back in high school.

>>77724007
As a Mexican, I'm actually glad someone remembered that Kyle was half. I know people gave Winnick shit for it, but I liked it. And the secret spy thing was a whole lot better than the redneck white asshole father they gave him in 52.
>>
>>77719851
/co/ used to be big on Kyle
what happened?
>>
>>77729182
New Guardians happened.
>>
>>77729182
see >>77729215
A few people here were put off by him becoming the only White Lantern, and then the rest were driven off when he survived being Source Walled and came back empowered by the Life Equation.
>>
>>77729261
And, I guess, Kyle/Carol?
>>
>>77729283
It certainly didn't help.
>>
>>77729261
And the people who weren't driven off by those jumped ship when Carol happened
>>
>>77730731
They didn't break up yet?
>>
>>77725847
F
>>
Aww yee this the good shit.

Thanks OP.
>>
>>77720954

Yeah, if you ask a Catholic, they might say it doesn't encompass protestants, and if you ask protestants, they might say it doesn't encompass catholics.

If you ask anyone else, it obviously encompasses both and anyone who says otherwise is being petty and absurd.
>>
>>77730768
New Guardians ended with them still together and Kyle's mentioned her a couple times early in OM but then Kalista came onto him pretty hard and Carol hasn't been seen since NG ended so I'm hoping by the time Omega Men ends they're split

preferably as horribly as possible, I don't want them to ever have a reason to get back together

also I get the impression that King doesn't care for it either
>>
>>77730849
>preferably as horribly as possible, I don't want them to ever have a reason to get back together
Ditto. Hal/Carol 4 lyfe.
>>
>>77720509

The planet Kinks. The world of Vice and Freedom.

Subtle.
>>
>>77730879
It's called Hyn'xx
>>
>>77730866
I want them back together eventually but if they did it anytime soon it would probably suck
>>
>>77731458
Yep. I wouldn't mind to wait until Hal gets his shit together and brings Corps back.
>>
>>77731458
Vendetti couldn't even break them up right, he'll need to leave first.
>>
>>77731560
Also Venditti needs to go first because he can't write her worth a shit and he flat out said he doesn't really like them together
>>
Is Carol doing anything now that she's not Kyle's girlfriend? Are there any writers left that care about her?
>>
>>77731582
Nope.
>>
>>77731620
Figures. I miss Johns.
>>
>>77731582
Nope

Somebody asked Venditti at a panel if she'd be in GL and he said she'd be present, whatever that's worth
>>
>>77731573
>and he flat out said he doesn't really like them together
I can't believe I actually agree with Venditti on something.
>>
>>77732357
Anon, Hal/Sinestro will never be canon.
>>
>>77732387
Good. I would never be able to take a faggot pink Hitler seriously.
>>
>>77732387
Why must you hurt me like this?

I wish Hal's canon pairings weren't all so shitty, I want to like him and Carol but tigers so much baggage and writers feel like they only put them together so they can break them up
>>
>>77720158
Omega:Religion of peace?
>>
>>77732438
Who are you pairing Hal with? Carol and Sinestro are first picks usually.
>>77732488
Because we can't have happy relationships, right? I expect Superman and Wonder Woman to break up soon.
>>
>>77732548
>Who are you pairing Hal with?
No one in particular. I just don't like Carol, the role she usually plays, and the direction it always takes the story in.
>>
>>77732623
Well, yeah. Most of time she loves him until she doesn't and fuck off to space to wage war on Green Lanterns or something.
>>
>>77732548
Pretty sure that just happened in Superman & Wonder Woman.
>>
>>77732765
Can't say I'm surprised. In this time and age, no relationship is safe.
>>
>>77732548
>I expect Superman and Wonder Woman to break up soon.

They already did. Clark was talking about them being broken up in the latest "Superman"
>>
>>77732833
What was reason?
>>
>>77732821
I feel like DC is willing to try pairings that make sense (even some that don't) with the understanding that the status quo will eventually return.
Marvel's where you gotta be careful, in my opinion.
>>
>>77732906
In Superman he just said it didn't work out, I dunno if SMWW goes into more depth

>>77732980
I think DC really doesn't want any iconic or classic pairings right now for whatever reason, although it does feel like they're just trying different shit until the status quo can return
>>
>>77733135
>I think DC really doesn't want any iconic or classic pairings right now for whatever reason
Who's left? Aquaman and Mera are classic pairing. Hawkman and Hawkgirl are gone.
>>
>>77733167
Sounds like editorial might have wanted to split Arthur and Mera but Bunn found a way around it

There's Clark and Lois but not the "main" versions and Ellen & Buddy although I dunno if I'd call them classic, I can't think of anything else
>>
>>77733355
>Sounds like editorial might have wanted to split Arthur and Mera but Bunn found a way around it
Hah, yeah. Gotta admit, I loathed Bunn's start when I saw pairing is broken. Now when I know truth, I'm happy.
But I always liked that Poseidon's trident.
>>
>>77733135
>>77733167
I figured that was part of the Nu52 thing, shake things up with some non-traditional pairings and a few gay/bi guys.
Marvel's doing the same thing with ANAD.
I mean, Iron Man and Spider Man have effectively swapped lives (and Tony got MJ, not sure if Peter's getting Pepper).
Not sure if there's gonna be a gay/bi push a la Midnighter/Constantine from Marvel, outside of team books.
>>
>>77733643
Gay solo? Isn't Angela lesbian?
But gay man solo? Not happening, unless Falcon figures he's into dicks.
>>
>>77733768
I know nothing about Angela, but I think you're right.
I'm sort of hoping for something from Starbrand and Night Mask, though Starbrand's been straight in all his incarnations, pretty sure Night Mask is the same.
>>
>>77734066
I doubt Starbrand and Night Mask will sell good enough, even with gay push. They're literally who to most people.
>>
>>77734098
I know, I'm the one sucker who liked New Universal back in, gosh, 07, 08?
I was so excited when Hickman used them in his Avengers, an ongoing for them is more than I dare hope.
I'd love it if other characters in the book are revealed to be New Universal heroes or something.
>>
>>77719634
lol that cover date
>>
>>77734066
This incarnation hasn't really been stated as anything. Honestly it would kind of make sense if it turned out that Kevin and Adam are gay. They're the only ones the other cares about.
>>
>>77719634
I underestimated King.
>>
>>77739211
You fool. Now go read Grayson and Vision.
>>
>>77734066
Go back to tumblr to write your slash fiction
>>
>>77739790
Go to reddit if you can't handle that /co/ is gay and always has been.
