Okay. I admit that I’m a bit of a negative nelly in general, and I’m in a pretty shitty mood today in specific (count your lucky stars that it’s not Friday). Add to that the realization that this promo for Cartoon Network’s new CG Green Lantern cartoon is incredibly brief, too brief to make any kind of judgment about it, and the quality of the video is shit anyways, meaning it looks far worse here than it actually will when it premieres.
I know all this, god help me, and I still can’t help thinking this shit looks like Superman 64. I keep expecting Hal to fly through rings for eight minutes in a row. Hopefully some another preview will come out soon so we have have a better — by which I mean less shitty — look at this thing. (Via Newsarama)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
