Abbreviation (usually used on the internet) for "local comic shop" - a comic book store one typically patronizes due to its convenient geographic proximity. Often referred to as "my LCS."
I wish more of the guys at my LCS were crushworthy. As it is the clerk that spends most of his time there rattles on about Harry Potter and seems forever 37 going on 15. Not exactly the turn on.
Anyway... Green Lantern... a comic book character created in 1940 by Sheldon Moldoff (I believe) for All American Comics.
There have been three major Green Lanterns... the Golden Age GL, Alan Scott, the Silver Age GL, Hal Jordan, and the current Green Lantern, Kyle Rayner.
Green Lantern is still published monthly by DC Comics (who acquired All American in the 40s) and can be found at your local comic shop or bookstore.
|3.||Whatever Happened to the Man of Tommorow?|
"Whatever Happened to the Man of Tommorow?" is what "The Death of Superman" SHOULD have been. A gripping tale that doesn't just kill off Superman, but completes his story, puts and end to the mythology. It isn't just a marketing ploy, it's a grand finale to a great American legend. But it was written by Alan Moore, so what do you expect?
How to be a Good-Boy comic nerd.
Step 1: Get out of bed, and put on your coolest superhero T-Shirt.
Step 2: Go down to your local comic shop.
Step 3: Find a copy of the "Death of Superman" story from the 90's in trade. Place it on a shelf in plain view of the entire store.
Step 4: Face the trade, and promptly give it double birds as you shout "FUCK YOU!!!!" at the top of your lungs.
Step 5: Place trade where you found it.
Step 6: But a copy of "DC Universe: Tales of Alan Moore" containing "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tommorow?"
