Green Lantern Redux/Movies

Green Lantern to Come Out From the Shadows?   The last Green Lantern was a resounding flop. The lack of direction in the original film cost the franchise dearly. Ryan Reynolds for his part didn’t fit the Hal Jordan character, but thankfully it didn’t hurt his prospects too much as he is now flourishing as Deadpool. However, despite the disappointment that surrounded the first Green Lantern film, it seems Warner Bros. and DC are both intent on setting the record straight. It was about three years ago when Dwayne Johnson excited DC fans with a tweet about the possibility of featuring in the new Green Lantern movie. That single post led millions to think that Johnson might actually play John Stewart in a GL film.  John Stewart was the first African-American superhero to appear in DC Comics, and later on became a major recurring character in the Green Lantern mythos within the DC Universe. His character can also be seen in several Justice League animation movies. While Johnson did confirm that he was indeed meeting with Warner Bros. about a DC Comics movie project, the fans later found out that Johnson won’t be starring in the upcoming Green Lantern film. Instead, he is set to play Black Adam,  archenemy of the DC superhero Shazam. Despite Johnson revealing that he wasn’t going to play Green Lantern, it seems that a movie...

Tom Deisboeck/Comix

*** What’s So Funny? Tom Deisboeck’s work draws a sharp contrast between what is and what is said to be, narrowing the truth to a marriage of opposites. In these five panels, we get a taste of how Tom sees the world, and in his enthusiasm to share these insights, we get a glimpse into him, as well. Tom’s work will appear from time to time in Ragazine.CC. We are glad to have him on board. See our COMIX page for more, from Tom and others.     Tom Deisboeck is a scientist turned entrepreneur who attended Technical University...

Dante Distefano/Poetry

A gun rack tickles your ribcage when you
make love in the extended cab’s back seat.
You shoot the breeze with angels and sing hymns
that harmonize buckshot and wildflower.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
