If it had been a monthly, it had the equivalent of nearly a five year run. Not bad.

I wish Green Lanterns was going to continue, it's a great book. Jessica has come a really long way as a Green Lantern.

But with a relaunch of a new GL title coming later this year sometime, perhaps the beginning of next year, I'm sure we'll see Jessica again.

On a sidenote, I really wish the Cyborg Superman would stop being used as a villain in the GL books. He doesn't belong there. Never has.





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?

I really wish the Cyborg Superman would stop being used in any comic. Especially if Dan Jurgens is writing it.

Is he still the Highmaster of the Manhunters?

He's suitable as a Superman villain. He might even be a good anti-hero if DC decided to explore a "redemptive" path for him. But I honestly think Henshaw is beyond that point.

This news seems to differ from previous green lanterns news.

I hope Jessica is in a title again, she has quickly become my favorite.

I like Jessica too. She'll be appearing in JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY if you want to check it out.

So is Dan Jurgens a short-timer, or will he be eventually writing a relaunched Green Lantern book?

Hal will be in Grant Morrison's book, John is in Justice League, Jessica in Justice League Odyssey. That leaves Guy, Kyle, Simon in a Green Lantern Corps book if they go that route. Since they just announced the last issue this week, I wouldn't be surprised to see a replacement being announced in a month or so. It's been quite a few years since we've had only one Green Lantern book.
