Either way it's titled Green Lanterns. Who's gonna train her officially? If it's Kyle, I don't care if he's sharing the book with the flavor of the week female replacement hero... I'd buy it.

if i'm remembering right it was also foretold that Baz would be doing that part ( like we need any more books with Baz in it)

The only way I wouldn't buy it is if the stars of the book are Cruz and Baz

Yea in the final issue of Johns GL run they had Baz teaching Cruz, supposedly set during a time when the Justice League disappeared.

Kind of doubt that'll end up being the case though, DC doesn't plan that far ahead.

Are you kidding? Johns loves to foreshadow his next big thing.

True but Johns is presumably still under the 3 projects rule and he's already got Batman: Earth One Volume 3 in the works. Gotta think a book that ships twice a month would take up two "slots" and that would leave him with no room for Rise of the Seven Seas.

The fact that it is gunna double ship is what makes me think it won't be a Baz/Cruz team-up book. Putting your least popular GLs in one book and double shipping it seems like a pretty predictable way to get a book cancelled.

In fact, that's all he's ever done. Cliffhung one "big thing" into the "next big thing" and over and over which becomes like a Human Centipede connected ass-to-mouth, but into infinity. With no payoff ever. You never, ever get to see the person at the very end of the line actually take a shit because there is no person at the end of the line.

I wished Dc made up itīs mind regarding the Red Lanterns. Are they heroes, villains? They keep changing them back and forth.

They want them to be right on the verge of villains but not quite. They need to go away.

The spectrum should go away, and she should be a Green Lantern.

So...the GL family will soon consist of TWO titles, both green titles, which sounds good. No more color brigade crap. And the two titles will be shipping twice a month so DC still gets four GL titles on the printing schedule. That is smart on their part. The question is if the two titles will be worth buying. Neither sounds like a solo title. One is Hal and the Corps, and the other is also plural.

A lot for me rides on what the cast and premise is for each of the titles. As well as who the creative teams are. I'll check them out, but if I'm not impressed or get a good whiff of the corporate, soulless, hack bullshit DC has shoveled out the last few years, I'm gone.

A John/Guy buddy cop GL title in one book sounds nice. And the other being Hal, Kyle, and a cast of alien GLs.

Keep Baz and Cruz in JLA titles where they belong. In the shit corner of the DCU.

How will the art work on the twice monthly books? Will artists do arcs or will they alternate. Didn't Pacheco and EVA alternate arcs at the beginning of the volume after Rebirth?

If they've planned it out correctly they should have artists alternating arcs, however that puts the onus on the writer to make sure everything is planned out far in advance (i.e. when artist 1 is working on arc 1, artist 2 should also be working on arc 2) to make sure everything is running smoothly.

The GL and Hal Jordan book really interests me, since it's been a while since it's been a long while since we've seen Hal interacting with the Corps, let alone feature an entire book center around him and the corps.

I suspect that Green Lanterns book will feature Cruz as the main earth lantern, especially if the silhouette is anything to go by. I know most people are already in agony about that potential, but I just take it with a resounding eh! Also she'll be with another unnamed Lantern.
