    I would have given it a chance if it was reasonably priced and the existing GLs were all placed somewhere. Guy, Kyle and Baz are still unaccounted for. The last time we saw Guy was in Doomsday Clock when Dr. Manhattan destroyed his ring. I guess we're supposed to believe he's been left powerless.

    This all seems like it's in flux now. With Didio gone, will DC still go through with 5G, and will it be the same if they do? Are they going to make it mesh with Doomsday Clock eventually? Who knows.

    Are you talking about Far Sector? 'Cause it's a $3.99 book, which is basically the standard price for comics now.

    I generally don't care for teen characters, but this one was an exception. It was not only a good entry point story, which GL desperately needed, it was a tight story overall. I think we're going to see more of these types of novels for GL since DC can tell this type of story without worrying about continuity with the main book(s).

If it even matters at this point. We are probably in the last 2 years of Green Lantern comics even being published.
    The only way I could envision that happening is if DC goes under. What do they have that's definitely working better than GL? Batman, Harley, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Even Flash is debatable. With new publishing styles like the novel style of Legacy, there is some evidence of DC using different formats for their stories, but DC Comics being like an 8 title per month company? That seems highly unlikely.

    Besides, DC won't sell once less Jessica doll if she's not in the comics. Little kids can't afford comics. They watch television.
    Yes, it is about the numbers, and I'm not sure what numbers you're seeing. DC's premiere super hero group is selling less than 50K, which puts them behind several X-Men titles. Green Lantern's main title, despite being solid and a personal favorite, bled readership until it was barely 40K copies sold, and Blackstars 3rd issue couldn't even top 30K. None of that backs up the idea that GL's printed stories are unstoppable juggernauts that are being hurt by newer characters. In fact, combine Far Sector and Odyssey, and they outsold Blackstars last month, despite being properties that aren't designed to be ongoing.

    Moreover, I have no earthly idea where you got this notion that I just want to "see Jessica everywhere" at the expense of the Green Lantern property. That is the exact opposite of everything that I've ever posted. I'm a *GREEN LANTERN* fan, which means that I'm behind any part of the mythos that increases the GLC's visibility in a world inundated with multimedia super hero content. The *facts* are that GL's current title is a deep-dive story that couldn't and didn't appeal to everyone, as is evidenced by the numbers. Green Lantern needs new readership (ALL comics need this to survive) and stories like Far Sector and Legacy were designed to give new readers different entry points. Green Lantern fans should be thankful for any exposure that the property gets in print, animation, live-action, and collectibles. All of that helps the Green Lantern property survive.
