  3. I don't normally favor child abuse but, it increasingly seems that some kids really need a good asskicking.

  4. Please, for the good of all of us, just go ahead and draw the next panel where she slaps the shit out of this kid. "Yeah, how many Green Lanterns ARE there, bitch?"

  7. "I don't know your honor...one minute I was asking my son what the hell a Green Lantern was, and then I kinda went red with rage - which, as I found out later, was kinda ironic!"

    In continuity? In continuity they've always been a corps, so there was only one GL for that short gap between the first and second GL's getting their rings.

    IRL? Yes, before Hal Jordan was introduced in the Silver Age, it was just Alan Scott, and before that, no one.

  9. Yeah, in Batman Beyond, there's just one GL.
    In comics - in DC One Million world there's no Corps, so the Green Lantern who arrived there from 20th century was the only one. Think it was Kyle.

  10. For the mid-90s to the mid-00s, Kyle was mostly a solo act. A couple other people got rings, but generally only him and eventually John "Not the Daily Show Guy" Stewart.

  11. Is that the same kid from yesterday's strip?

  12. I hope his mother refused to buy him anything. And made him walk home.

    If she did buy him something, then she is, at least in part, for what a brat he is.

  14. I would have loved for my mother to take an interest in my comics rather than refer to them as "that crap you waste your money on." This kid is lucky.

  15. When I was younger, whenever I disrespected my mom like that I'd recieve an open palm smack to the lips. I learned discipline and respected it, as long as it didn't border on abuse. It amazes me how kids today act like this.

    The Green Lantern movie IS child abuse.

    Or is that childhood abuse ... I forget.

  17. I work at a comic shop, and I hate it when I see behavior like this and the parents tolerate it. I don't think you necessarily have to lay a hand on a child, but this shit shouldn't fly. My parents never hit me, but they sure as hell were good about putting the fear of God in me, and I respected them. To this day, I can count the times I've sworn directly at my mother on one hand.

  18. @ fey: youre right! the mom shouln't lay a hand on that child. she should lay a FIST onto the brat! repeatedly if necessary for maximum effect.

    (sarcasm)

  19. IN truth my mother never hit me - she just said "Okay, start walking." We lived in a small town, and her response to any situation where she was embarrassed or disrespected by a bratty child was to start walking home.

  20. Those Kidrobot shirts aren't cheap either. Probably just a spoiled brat... kids need parents, not walking mats.
