Now I'm not really all that crazy about Hal, but I do like Peter David and Christopher Priest, so I'm wondering how these read. Are there any standout issues? Are they collected anywhere? Thoughts and or opinions would be appreciated.

Peter David's run on Action Comics Weekly with his Green Lantern stories were nothing special IMO. Plus, it was a short run on top of it.

Can't say anything about Christopher Priest other than I am not a huge fan of his. His run on Steel left a very bad taste in my mouth since it was very, very boring. So boring in fact, I couldn't even read his entire run. He's gotten a lot better with other titles, though.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
