Default Larfleeze cancelled

Ends with issue 12 this June. Loved the character but the book was all wrong. Crap writing (juvenile humor every other sentence) and horrible muddled art. Deserves to be cancelled.

Anyone want to take bets on how long the Sinestro Corps will last?

And I say that The Red Lanterns and The New Guardians are on borrowed time.

Finally!

And I'd say ditch RL before NG. NG is the only Lantern book trying to do something different.

RLs is the only decent book left. I'm close to finishing with NG to be honest, and I've already quit GL and GLC long ago.

I think Red Lanterns will go before New Guardians ever gets in danger. The New Guardians book can always be the go-to book for the spectrum, so they would probably try that before dumping it. Sinestro's book should last at least a year. Obviously, if Johns had been writing it, the shelf life would probably be longer regardless of sales.

Can't believe it lasted 12 issues.

It took 12 issues too long, but better late than never.

Exactly, they already changed the nature of the book once. It's a chameleon book, if it doesn't work they can just change it because NG can be anything.
RL will always just be about angry red langern douchebags.

This is hardly shocking. I'll probably pick it up once it's collected in TPB form. I like Larf, but he's just not deep enough to be the centerpiece of a book. However, he could be beneficial to the RL,NG, SC titles in the future.

With Johns long gone and sales slipping into the abyss, DC will never put any real effort into the rainbow brigade again. Larfleeze' cancellation is the beginning of the end of that sad chapter. Red Lanterns and Sinestro will be next.

We need a retcon that'll erase the past ten years of GL. Just like Rebirth retconned the previous sixty.

Instead of retconning all of it away, I'd rather a story be done where the ability to link to the emotional spectrum is permanently severed. People still have emotions, but they can no longer use them to fuel a power ring. The entities all leave this universe.

The only one that stays usable is green because, hey...willpower isn't a fucking emotion! Someone could use THAT piece of logic for once!

Then all of the other skittles characters either be absorbed into the GLC, go away, or become villains with some other power source (Atrocitus resurrects the Five Inversions for instance).

That would be the best way to go I think. The last 10 years wasn't all bad.

That would be awesome. It could solve the reservoir thing at the same time. Someone just figures out for whatever dumb reason all the other colors drain it, but of course green doesn't because it ain't emotion.

Though, of course, if Green doesn't drain the reservoir, then we'd be left without any explanation of why the green rings were failing, too, when the reservoir was running empty.

That's why we need a retcon. Or better yet, a reboot.

I say no retcons, just get rid of the rainbows and sort everything out. Instead of this silly ban on the emotional spectrum imposed by the GLC, have something wipe them out. Have someone in canon state willpower isn't an emotion, bring back classic villains and kill off these new guardians. I've never liked the guardians in general myself so I don't know how I'd feel about them returning. Maybe just have these new ones to wear proper guardian clothing and get rid of their explorer shit.

Reintroduce classic villains and put an end to these big events.

An insidious EMP-style device deployed by the Durlans at the same time as Relic to mislead the GLC.

I think if the Durlans had a device that could cause all GL rings everywhere to fail, even temporarily, they wouldn't just be using it to mislead the GLC. They'd be using it to slaughter them. No need for the slower ring-draining devices they are currently employing if they can just make the rings all cut out completely.

I think Green Lantern missed its chance to reboot with the New 52.

What I'd do? First of all, I'd never launch that Sinestro book. Doing so unecessarily spreads things way too thin, and I don't think it's a good concept for its own title.

As for the Emotional Spectrum... I'd decimate the Indigos and Larfleeze, and contain the rest of it to New Guardians, and the Red Lanterns would be the Red Lanterns. I'd have Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps have nothing to do with it, aside from perhaps having Fatality around in GLC. Over time, the Emotional Spectrum would just lose its relevance in the GL universe.
