    I feel like that almost always happens with "senior" people. It's like when high schoolers become Seniors and treat the Freshman like crap forgetting they were once Freshman themselves or like when an employee who started as a cashier becomes a manager and starts treating other cashiers like crap because once he got promoted he suddenly forgets he was once just a cashier as well. (I'm sure there are better analogies but that's what I got at the moment )

    Pretty sure he's referencing Feska, a new Green Lantern recruit who was taken from her child at night by the ring...in Green Lantern Corps.

    I'm bored out of my mind with it. The pacing is slow, not feeling the writing, and I think the art sucks. I may give this issue another read to see if it can at least go from a 2 to a 3 but if not I'll wait till things get into high gear.

    Thanks. I do not read New Guardians mainly because I dislike any and everything Kyle based so I did not know that was going on.

    I thought the art was definitely a step down from the previous two issues. I'm not sure if it was Tan under deadline pressure or Rob Hunter just not gelling as well as he did last issue, but something went wrong early and often. I was also none to pleased with the story here. Hal and Kilowog bickering just didn't need all that page time. I get it, and in the long game, I'm sure it'll be a nice little bit of "and then Hal came around to love Gazzl" scenes but now...Now it just seems like he doesn't want to rush into Relic just yet, which is weird because that's all we're going to have for the next few months.

    Just pick up the pace, fix Soranik's hair and collar and I'll be singing your praises again soon enough.

Some of the inside panels in particular just look bad, but I think I will take story over that right now. I do have a question, maybe I missed something, but when the Star Sapphire had Hal and she explored who he cared for, the next two page spread showed Kyle, what appeared to be Relic and some other stuff not Carol related. Why is this? Does Hal even know that Relic exists?

    So far this has been my favorite issue of Venditti's Green Lantern. I enjoyed Hal's character and feeling sorry for his decision and I enjoy the new recruits. Kilowog throwing the chair out the window was great. I enjoyed the Octillion line and Hal breaking in. Intrigued with Nol-Anj but more intrigued with the ending, can't wait for Lights Out after the Villains Month. Venditti's writing takes some time to pick up but when he picks up his writing becomes amazing.

    I like 2681795 a lot. Logical, extremely logical. Almost as good as Aya. She'll be a Corps leader before this is over.

    And just as I feared, Hal is, well, being Hal.

    Action has to be interrupted for Villains Month, really, and the ending is suspenseful but artificial. Still, nice looking art, interesting sub-plots, and worth a low 4. Venditti knows where he's taking us and I'll go along for the ride; Chosenone85, we'll miss you.

    Well, it's not as good as GLC, but I like it.
    Loved when Hal did the the slide shoot back thing. He looked weird on p.1 though.
