DC Spoils Own Green Lantern Crossover Event

Green Lantern Corps #20 features an epilogue for "Wrath of the First Lantern," the Green Lantern crossover event that doesn't end for another two weeks.




Somewhere out there in the multiverse, there is a version of Earth where the entire human race evolved with vanilla pudding instead of neural matter for brains, and we're pretty sure that DC's entire executive team is slowly being replaced by pudding-brained dopplegangers from this alternate reality. DC's latest massive screw-up occurred yesterday, when the company shipped Green Lantern Corps #20, which spoils the ending of their "Wrath of the First Lantern" crossover, the final issue of which, Green Lantern #20, won't ship for another two weeks. Bleeding Cool was helpful enough to photoshop all the spoilers out of the page if you want to head over there, download it, print it out, and insert it into your copy so you can read the book without being spoiled.

Here at The Outhouse, however, we decided to get to the bottom of this. Why can't DC manage something as simple as publishing their books in the chronological order in which they should be read? We barged into a meeting of DC's top brass to ask the question.

"The Outhouse!" barked DC head honcho Dan Didio. "Get them out of here!"

You know you're really blacklisted when DC executives won't even talk to you in a made up conversation.

"What about Green Lantern Corps #20?" we protested. "Do you have any comment?"

"No comment!" shouted an angry Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer.

"Any truth to the rumor that your executives are being replaced by pudding-brained dopplegangers from an alternate dimension?" we pressed.

"That's ridiculous!" Didio answered, motioning to some DC goons who sprung into action to eject us from the building. But, before we could be removed, we pulled out our ace card: a squeaky rubber dog toy shaped like a t-bone steak. As we squeezed the toy, we noticed Editor in Chief Bob Harras's ears perk up. Clearly we had his attention.

"Whooosa good boy?" we asked, as Harras's eyes widened. "Whooooooooosa good boy? Whoooo wantsa treat?!"

"Stop him!" Johns demanded, but it was too late. We tossed the rubber steak onto DC's conference table, and it squeaked delightfully as it bounced right in front of Harras.

'HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" chortled Harras, clapping his hands together awkwardly. He was able to actually connect with about 60% of the claps. Clearly, our suspicions were correct. Bob Harras has pudding for brains. How long before DC's other execs are replaced as well? For some, might it be an improvement?

This is an important issue that could have serious ramifications for the comic book industry and the future of DC Comics. The Outhouse will keep you updated.

It's not just DC (but that's pretty bad).

Marvel managed to spoil All New X-Men (one of the OG X-Men left and joined Cyclops' team, but they didn't say who it was in that issue) in Uncanny X-Men (the issue that came out the same week as ANX showed the X-Man in question).

That was on purpose though, they want people to read both in that order.

This is nothing.

The real story should be on how they miscolored J'Onn J'Onnzz to look like Batman in JLA #3 this week.

yeah like punchy said that was kind of on purpose... You saw two sides of the story. Whereas in GLC you have the ending of a story that won't be out for a couple weeks spoiled...

From the cover it was kind of obvious ("epilogue" being the dead give away) that it was out of order. Easy enough for me to leave it unopened for another couple weeks.

The only thing spoiled for me is that the characters on the cover survive (which isn't a shock as they're on the covers of future solicitations).

Fitting end to one of the worst crossovers in a long time.

First Lantern = :smt015

At least John got to bang Fatality (with Mogo watching :groucho: ) and Guy saved his family.

I'll miss Tomasi on GLC. :cry:

I peaked. That felt so wrong but hilarous that Mogo watched. EW. Though the Guy doing stuff with his family was the best part of the book. Like smacking that Aquaman cut-out and throwing the idiot with the Ipad into the movie screen.

The fact that you may be serious about this makes it even worse.
