I would guess Joe does!
“I guess Joe.”
“You guessed right!”
I’ll take some of those Kilowogs off Joe’s hands.
What? You army building the guy? Using them as part of a performance art piece?
He’s building a Kilowog Voltron.
He wants t re-enact the GLC issue where Kilowog creates lantern-ghosts of all his dead relatives.
…I think that happened, didn’t it?
I don’t know if it was intentional, but Galasso’s snarking is awesome (also, Green Lantern toys, bad etc.).
Quick Joe, store them in a vault so in fifty years time, their value goes from $5 to $6.
Actually their price will sky rocket when we figure out the robot overlords one weakness is toy grade plastic.
That tone sounds like Galasso used to work at Barnes & Noble.
He has conquered the book store, fast food resturaunt, and coffee distribution center. Soon he will move on to the Super store.
Don’t forget the pizza place!
No, Borders, clearly.
Was everything this green before? Or did the place get taken over by Leprecahns?
The website had a brainfart and it needs to be rebuilt. This is the “I don’t know better CSS than this” temporary stage.
Certainly fits today’s comic.
That is good. I thought you jumped on the bandwagon of bland web design that I’ve been seeing a lot of lately.
I see black on black. Hey everyone, press Ctrl-A to highlight everything. Wait it’s too dark you can’t read this… HEY EVERYONE..
Oh, phew. I was wondering why the hell anyone would choose this as a redesign >_>
I very much enjoy the evolution of Galasso’s frown from the second panel to the third.
Could be worse. Could be Terminator Salvation merch. Fortunately, that has been turned into a bar by Mike.
Let’s take a ride
Along with the DOGS tonight
In Suburbia–Pet Shop Boys
A gag strip? What? I want feelings, dammit!
Or at the very least Leslie trying to hook up with Billie.
Where’s the cream Feelings?
I’m still trying to figure out how Danny would feel about that.
Hey!…*Danny stands idly and watches them with a dissaproving look on his face.
Don’t be silly Leslie doesn’t have glasses, so Danny would be annoyed.
Where is Roz when you need her?
Hell, I get the feeling Billie wouldn’t be thrilled either.
Glad to hear you’re rebuilding. This green is just a bit…..green.
Is this the color that Shortpacked employees use for their uniforms? Looks a bit too light.
Glancing at the banner, though, it looks like maybe this is what the outside of the store is painted.
The Shortpacked! uniform has been described as “pukey”. This is more sea foam.
Of course, sea foam can induce nausea, so…
Particularly if swallowed.
Also, love the convenient “You gotta be kidding!” boxes in the background of that last panel. Very apropos.
“You’ve gotta be kidding!” by the makers of “You’re Shitting me!”, “Get out of here!”, “You’re pulling my leg!”, and “Say What!?”
Of course, in the UK it is marketed as “Pull The Other One, It’s Got Bells On”.
Green Lantern film figures aren’t that bad. It’s not like they talk or anything. You can just pretend they’re comic Green Lantern figures.
The joke isn’t the quality, but rather if no one liked the movie (and it seems they didn’t) then it’s likely associated merch didn’t sell well.
I liked the movie, but I seem to be one of only about five people who did.
I did too… So now we just have to find the other three people.
I thought it was, well, watchable…does that count? I mean, it was better than that first Hulk movie at least.
Better than the first Hulk, the second Ghost Rider and I liked it better than Thor (but then, I’ve never really liked Thor in general). I think people are forgetting just how bad superhero movies can be. I mean, hasn’t anyone else watched Steel lately? I might be biased, though. You see, I tend to like DC’s solo characters more than Marvel’s, so I was glad to see a decent DC superhero movie starring someone who wasn’t Superman or Batman.
People have blocked out the early-90′s superhero glut caused by the 89 Batman movie. We now just expect superhero movies to be good.
(Why they didn’t adapt Emerald Dawn is beyond me.)
Geoff Johns. That’s why.
If they talked they’d be way more awesome.
I would agree with this, except that most of the movie Lanterns really don’t look that much like their comic counterparts, what with being all shiny and lumpy and all.
This is the only reason I don’t already own the Rot Lop Fan figure… *sobs*
Rule #1: Don’t fuck with Galasso.
Not a problem, considering he doesn’t know how.
Well, ah… It’s better than the movie, right?
I thought those toys actually sold rather well.
I don’t have any sales numbers, I just know there’s copious amounts of heavily-clearanced GL merchandise on the rear-facing endcap in most of our local stores.
I just stoped by a Toys R Us on my way home from school. There are, in fact, a lot of Green Lantern movie toys still on the shelf. In fact, it seems like DC toys in general don’t sell too well.
(Incedentily, I actually saw a couple of live action Last Airbender toys still on the shelf)
The movie came out more than a year ago and there are still plenty of toys warming the pegs as of a few weeks ago when I bought my Nickelodeon TMNT figures (which are awesome, by the way.) It was annoying, too. I’d see green and think that I might have finally tracked down a Leonardo, but when I got closer it was just Ryan Reynolds.
Ryan Reynolds is not turtle enough to sell toys!
Now, Galasso must cope with being a mere mortal.
He could engage in some kind of Combat..
That will surely Test His Might.
Galasso must be determined not to be beaten by his daughter if he was willing to allow an investor gain this much control over his store.
Is all this green to be color coated and themed with the Green Lantern question of the comic? Or did Willis just eat a leprechaun and fart green on the website for fun?
Is that an Iron Man version of Operation?
Why, yes. Yes it is.
ffffssss ouch, green lantern, burn it joe, just burn it
Looks like Galasso got owned. *rimshot*
I acknowledge that humor has occurred!
Poor Green Lantern movie, had such promise but failed miserably.
Galasso is being a killjoy.
They’re going to have to keep on making Green Lantern movies until people buy them. You know, like the Hulk.
At least the second Hulk movie turned out pretty good. And the third was awesome.
What third Hulk movie?
Oh yeah, that movie where Bruce Banner was completely out of character and the rules of Hulk transformation appeared to have completely changed.
It was an awesome movie – but not an awesome Hulk movie. (Though once the final fight started he was fine, if inexplicably friendly.)
Let’s face it, though. The established Hulk/Bruce Banner isn’t really all that likable a character. He’s a superhero who’s trying to cure himself of being a superhero. That’s why people liked the Avengers version best. They based him on the David Banner character from the ’70s TV show. In that show, Banner was always trying to help someone else despite his Hulk problem. Prior to that, Banner only seemed interested in helping himself. I know it may take away from the “inherent tragedy” of the character, but there’s only so much tragedy a superhero character can have before people just want them to act like an honest-to-goodness hero.
Oh God, at first I read “pumped my money into” as “pumped my money on to” and took it for innuendo. What is wrong with me?
Nothing in the least.
I didn’t think the movie was that bad.
Okay, sure, not good, but not horrendous. Just had the wrong guy for Hal.
Green Lantern: First Flight was the superior GL movie.
I’m still trying to figure out why they gave the man without fear a fear complex.
I mean, yeah, learning to get over fear is even more courageous than being without it, yeah yeah, but he hadn’t done that yet. Are we to believe that there was nobody else in the country further along than him on the phobia-recovery timeline?
That’s been the way the story’s gone since the miniseries “Emerald Dawn” in the late ’80s though. Instead of being born without fear, the requirement is now that a Green Lantern must be able to “overcome great fear”.
What Penguin said. Almost all of it. This accurately reflects my own opinion. I think I have a bromance for Ryan Reynolds so I like him as GL.
Galasso’s actually toy-savvy enough to execute that level of snark?
I never would have guessed.
Well, his store is still in business at the very least, so he must know what inventory doesn’t sell.
