I wanted this title before DC wore out their welcomes with Red Lanterns, Larfleeze, Threshold, Green Lantern TAS, and GL New Guardians. I'll buy it because I buy any and all lantern related titles, but I really hope they find a purpose for the book.

Like Mister Ed said, what's this group's mission statement? What is the purpose of the group? And the purpose of the comic? We don't need another comic of mindless drivel aimed at 14 year olds like Red Lanterns. I think Sinestro Corps has the POTENTIAL to be the best of any non green title in the lantern-verse.

Also, I'm tired of lantern spin offs that AREN'T green. New Guardians being titled green is false advertising since the only lantern in it is wearing a white ring and costume. This will really make only two out of the six books green. That's a crock of shit.

Agreed. DC gets to say they have 6 GL titles but really it's only 2.

True but Superman sales have kinda hit rock bottom. Green Lantern outsells both Superman and Action Comics, and all the other GL titles are selling better than the likes of Supergirl and Superboy (which isnít selling very good).

Superman Unchained looks to change that (apparently itís pre-order sales were very good), but the only question is, how long will it last before itís sales start falling? Action Comics and Superman have both seen considerable drops since the new 52 started, and Unchained will probably continue the pattern.

Unless those rumors are of a weekly Green Lantern title are true.

I'd be shocked it DC pulled off a legitimate weekly lantern title. They've basically already achieved this by having a lantern title in comic shops every Wednesday.

Yeah, I think that was their goal when New52 launched, and if Red Lanterns had sold better we probably wouldn't be getting this.

I only bring it up, because apparently according to Bleeding Cool, DC will announce it's weekly comics at either San Diego or NYCC.

However those are only Lantern titles, and not Green Lantern title specifically, as you just pointed out.

How would you feel if Hal got a second title (an actual second title)?

Red Lanterns is actually selling quite well. Itís seen a drop since the new 52 started, but itís nowhere near the red zone as far as cancellation goes.

Besides if it wasnít selling well, then I doubt DC would have announced a Larfleeze title, or even a Sinestro Corps title.

It isn't selling well, just better than the worst. Larfleeze and Sinestro Corps is just DC's way of padding its "Franchise" as they do with Batman and Superman.

I think a Sinestro title is a great idea. But there is too many GL books now, especially seeing how only half are actually Green now. Oh wait, only two are green because Kyle is now white! I say keep GL, GLC, NG (why not just rename it white lantern?), and make the Sinestro book, but dump RLs and OL.

I think Red Lanterns was a test (to see if another corps could sell a comic that wasn't green), and apparently it passed, since we supposedly getting more lantern related titles featuring the other corps.

Wouldn't be my first choice, but I'd probably like it better than something like Larfleeze.

I'd love a second Hal title, but if they use him right in his own title for once, it wouldn't appeal to me so much.

You know, they REALLY have too many GREEN Lantern titles. After changing New Guardians to WHITE Lantern, DC really needs to cancel GLC to make room for an Indigo or Blue Lantern book. Fair is fair, you know? It's not like Green Lantern actually brings in readers or anything. One green title is already being pretty greedy.

I think they should drop all the non-Green books and (if necessary) replace them with one anthology series. A kind of DC presents. It could be white one month, red the next, etc. They could call it Full Spectrum Warrior (after a legal arrangement).

Another event will come around and tie all the books together and the sales will probably be just enough to keep all of the non Green titles around for the first 6 to 12 issues. I don't see Larfleeze being that great. I personally liked the more badass Agent Orange from his first appearance before he became a freaking joke.

Sadly, they'll probably try to do the same thing Red Lanterns did and introduce a Sinestro from sector 2814 to draw us in.

I'd much rather see the likes of Effigy reimagined, or maybe Alex Nero returning in Sinestro Corps or New Guardians. Ya know, just with more lines in their costumes. Both of these guys had a poor showing in Kyle's Ion maxi series.

Agreed. Nero and Effigy definitely need to return; since it's the "New 52," their pointless deaths could be easily retconned along with everything else.

My question is how? Sinestro is Parallax and nobody else is intresting enough to carry an ongoing? Given the right circumstances I would buy this book and if it were written as a anti hero book I could see it becoming popular.

Alex Nero and Effigy should definitely return. What about Major Force too?

Please no. And while we are shooting people down keep mongul-ish characters away too.

Major Force is already back, in a "New 52" form.
