I'm not one to talk, I wasn't impressed with Sam Humphries' Green Lanterns and so declined to follow past the conclusion of the First Ring storyline, and while Hal Jordan has been quite good it also shares a lot in common with most of DCs titles at this moment - the sense of just marking time...

Really I'm slightly frustrated by it. For instance consider the books since the 'Edge of Oblivion' series - we still have no idea how or why or who or what sent the Green Lantern Corps to the the past universe, and no reason to think we ever will. The Templar Guardians have been missing since that very series, indeed they have not even been mentioned in a Green Lantern books since before the Edge of Oblivion. Seemingly erased from memory. Which is insulting in itself. Meanwhile the haven world that the Green Lanterns saved in that Universe and brought back into this alien space have never been referenced either, which given the stated dangers of transporting remnants from that state to this (see Relic) is just one more example of the lack of any respect for the readership of these books.

I can go on, the fact is though these books feel like they are running on autopilot for the most part. If the ublisher doesn't care, neither will the readership. I still enjoy Hal Jordan nominally however so will try to find time to write something soon... \(yes\)
