    I'm confused, too. Since reboot we haven't seen any character blame Hal for Parallax again. And he also hasn't shown regret for that again. When Guardians mentions him, they just say he is a threat not a former renegade. However I don't think Johns will erase the whole Parallax thing, since it's almost all his run in v4 about. And it's confirmed that Blackest Night still happened, Hal must had died once, the restoring Sun thing still exists.

    Didn't Krona show Hal in WotGL that the Guardians were planning on taking Hal out again, since he survived Parallax? It was the along the same sequence of showing Ganthet and the other Guardians freeing the First Lantern for the Third Army. So it's been confirmed he was Parallax, just probably didn't die in the Sun/reborn as Spectre/etc, but was still freed due to Ganthet/Kyle/JLA figuring out the whole fear entity vs crazy Hal.

    We don't know that Hal became Parallax anymore. There's no proof of that in the New 52, or of the entities' existence in general. All we know is that something horrible happened to the Corps (and the CPB was not destroyed!), and Ganthet gave Kyle a brand-new ring (not Hal's old ring).

    I love how the biggest thing we got out of the issue was that Hal Jordan was Parallax'd three years into being a GL and Kyle is the only Earth GL who hasn't been unmasked.

    I'm with Dave on this one. I buy Green Lantern to read about Hal Jordan not other characters. When the new volume was released I gave it a shot even though I wasn't thrilled about the direction of it. After 12 issues and an annual I decided that I was done with it.

    This book has become boring, predictable and it basically is just repeating themes, story elements, from the previous run. I don't want to read about the Skittles Corps, the Evil Guardians or their new plan to create yet another corps to substitute the previous one. Now we have another war looming, how many times are we supposed to read the same thing over and over again?
    I dropped the book after the annual, Iím not interested in reading about Johnsí new pet character, especially if itís at the expense of my favorite and the whole thing reads like a bad after-school special. The whole background story is almost 10 years too late, and at this point one have to rethink a lot of things considering the situation in the Middle East. When a book reads as preachy as OíNeill and Adamsí Hard-Traveling Heroes in this day and age is time to let it go.

    To be honest with you guys, I donít miss the book. Iím reading a lot of indie titles lately and Iím actually looking forward to go to my LCS again. Heck, I count the days until the release of the next issue of certain books. We donít need to buy from the Big 2 anymore, these days we have a lot of options. Since this big corporations only understand money I decided to vote with my wallet, no more GL for me until we have a new direction (new writer).

    Green Lantern has the potential to be a ground-breaking science fiction book but it just being a mediocre, cheesy, boring and predictable space soap opera. Until we get something great again, Iím out..

    The bit about Kyle being an artist or a gamer was my favorite part of the issue.

    I am reminded of the interlude in GL Volume 2, issues 182-198, when John Stewart was being established. Hal was a non-powered civilian who had quit the GL Corps in disgust, a sidebar character in his own book. We seem to be re-inventing the past...and with the pending release of the trade paperback version of that very same era, methinks it's a deliberate re-inventing of the past. I did not like GL during that time either. This is a great story arc for a hiatus in purchasing the book. Trouble is, those of us who took hiatus in purchasing the book back then reduced the circulation figures so drastically that DC re-molded the book (as Green Lantern Corps) and, 24 issues later, cancelled it entirely for some years. In the revived title, Hal only lasted to issue #50, and that was with eight or nine issues devoted to John and Guy besides.

    Choice is yours, folks. Support the book, or not. Support it and be disappointed, feel like you've wasted $3.00 a month. Don't support it and see it cancelled, and be disappointed anyway, but save the $3.00 a month--and pick up the books at HPB or in quarter bins down the line.

    Disappointed writers will flood the comboxes and e-mail of the originators. You know where to post your views.

    Dave, hang in there, it might get better. Don't leave yet. Congrats on an amazing run of Hellblazer.

    Did anyone else find the DC previews too small to read?

    The issue did feel werid in reading but its the new guy feel and how the book shapes up. ust a basice read and intro to Simon in GL boots. The way his costume is drawn look boring and not really orginal unless thats how a newbie would do so.

    In my opinion, since issue #1 until now I don't think Hal is just a supporting character. Especially in the Indigo tribe arc and black hand return arc, it’s much more focus on Hal than in Brightest Day and Green Lantern War period. I was quite satisfied in past 7 months. Compare to the idiot green jerk in JL title, I can see in GL title Hal is finally going to take responsibilities of his life, of his destiny (or something). That made me regain faith on Geoff Johns, and also makes me hate this break since GL#0. I like Baz’s story and I think this character has great potential. I just wish they create a special limit to feature him.

    The information concerning Kyle was far more interesting than the rest of the book.
