    On today’s Comics Syllabus, Paul and brother Sonny discuss “Green Lantern Earth One Volume One,” Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Bechko, and Jordan Boyd’s DC graphic novel retelling of Hal Jordan Green Lantern’s origin story in the Earth One universe. “Green Lantern Earth One” is a dash of Sonny’s favorite stuff– Green Lantern Corps and Green Lantern lore–filtered through the cinematic stylistics of Hardman and Bechko, some of Paul’s favorite creators.

    Then, Sonny and Paul pick upcoming trade collections on their wait list:

    Sonny picks “Batman Detective Comics TP Vol 06 Fall Of The Batmen Rebirth” by James Tynion IV and Joe Bennett and artists (DC), the fall of Clayface and nearing the end of the Tynion Detective run.

    Paul recommends “Fantastic Four Epic Collection TP New Fantastic Four” (Marvel) by various writers and artist, notably (for Paul) Art Adams art, collecting “Fantastic Four” #347-361 and Annual #24, a 90s run that includes Wolverine, Spiderman, Hulk, and Ghost Rider subbing for Marvel’s first family.

    Finally, a new wrinkle to the “Wait List with Sonny” segment. The brothers try out three “number one” issues, and Sonny decides if he’ll add any to his trade wait list. They discuss “Detective Comics” #982 (the first post-Tynion issue), “Thor” #1, and “By Night” #1 (Boom).
