Green Lantern: First Flight

September 30, 2009

Being the fan that I am of Green Lantern, I had to mention the recent animated movie Green Lantern: First Flight”. It was released in July on DVD and Blu-Ray  and features Hal Jordan as everybody’s favorite GL. I LOVED this movie! It was so action packed and immersive. Any fan of GL should own this.

One of my favorite aspects about “First Flight” is that Hal gets the ring and becomes GL in like the first five minutes of the movie. I’m so glad they didn’t spend an hour on his origin. I think I’ve seen enough superhero origin stories, thank you, so it was nice to just jump right into the action!

I also appreciated that this didn’t focus on a romance between Hal and his girlfriend, Carol Ferris. One of the things that bored me about 2006’s “Superman Returns” was that it was more of a love story than a superhero movie. “First Flight” leaves Carol behind in favor of getting our hero out into space and off on a cool adventure.

Even though I mentioned that I’m a big Kyle Rayner fan, Hal Jordan as Green Lantern kicked ass! I loved his portrayal in this. He had just the right amount of cockiness about him and was very likable. Sinestro (GL nemesis) was really cool too. After seeing this, I have a new appreciation for both characters.

The animation was great, the characters looked fantastic, and I was engrossed by the story. It was everything I hoped it would be. Plus, It was a nice change of pace to have a superhero movie that was so heavily sci-fi. Most superhero movies take place on Earth… in New York… So I was glad that I got to see a different environment finally.

I bought my version on Blu-Ray at Best Buy and it came packed with an exclusive figure of Green Lantern based on his costume from the movie. SCORE! This little figure is too cool and went right into my collection of GL figures that I have on display.

All in all, this was a super-fun purchase! I’ve watched it many times since I bought it. I’ve even started hunting down old comics from the 60’s thru the 80’s that featured Hal Jordan. That’s how much I loved it! After seeing this, it makes me wish that someone would produce an animated series starring the Green Lantern Corps. I recommend it to all GL fans! Thank you DC!

I Love Green Lantern!

September 29, 2009

I love Green Lantern! He’s been my favorite DC superhero for years. DC has several Green Lanterns at the moment, there’s Hal Jordan, John Stewart and Guy Gardner. Here is a rendering I did a while back of my favorite GL, Kyle Rayner.

Kyle has a certain sexiness that attracted me from the first time I saw him. I also like that fact that he doesn’t wear a cape. Sure, capes are fine, but they have a tendency to get in the way when appreciating the hero from the posterior! If you’ve ever flipped thru some of Kyle’s comics from the 90’s, you’d know what I mean! He had some nice ass shots back then! DAYUM!!! If he were real (and gay), he’d definitely be my number one SHILF (Super Hero I’d Like to F***!) I bet he could do all sorts of kinky things with that power ring of his! lol

Hyper Fusion

Today I decided to post the follow up image I did of our second main Character from “Boy Meets Hero”, Fusion. This is him all powered up into his super sexy Hyper-Form! It goes along with my first image of Hyper Blue Comet. I had a blast drawing both of these images. There’s nothing I love more than drawing, hot dudes! (Well, except for sex, ahem…) Anyway, Enjoy!

Hyper Blue Comet

First off, thanks for joining me on my very first venture into the realm of blogging! Welcome! My boyfriend and I have been working on our independent-gay-super-hero-comic “Boy Meets Hero” for the past few years now. As an illustrator, I’m constantly doodling in my sketchbook. I love drawing hot guys!!! I’m always coming up with various characters and stuff, and I thought it would be fun to share some of them. Sometimes, if I really like one of my drawings, I’ll scan it and colorize it in Photoshop.

I wanted to start off my first post with a pic of one of our main characters. This is Blue Comet in his Hyper-Form. I designed it sorta like a trading card… I wanted to make it as sexy and dynamic as possible! Hope you likey!!!
