EVS popped in last night. Doesn't look like he posted, though. Maybe he just turned around when he saw the moaning.

Crap. Hal is in "Green Lanterns". Now I'm going to have to buy it... It's looking like maybe Hal will force them to work together by making them share a battery?? Is that what's going on? Seems like the premise to an 80's sitcom and doesn't speak well of their characters that they can't be mature and resolve things, so "daddy" has to step in. (I also hated the whole "Hal fights Guy to reclaim his sector" story for the same reason)

I am glad that Benes has toned down the cheesecake factor in his art since "BoP." I liked his art a lot, but it was getting ridiculous there for a bit...

..yeah I'm getting tired of the same old by the numbers shit on GL. We've already seen it once, new GL's never make the same story interesting. Now they'll go on to face the Red Lanterns and one will get a red ring, then they'll face Larfleeze and one will go Orange Lantern, etc...

I agree. The solicits for this series make it look like they'll run the rainbow gauntlet. Ugh. I don't even want to see GLs I CARE about do that anymore. Much less these two turds.

It kind of looks like Kyle is 12 years old to me since the mask looks ridiculously big, like he's a kid trying on his parents clothes lol.

Now, I'm picturing in my head Hal yelling "be quiet, Kyle, the adults are speaking."

I don't know - the last White Lantern outfit looked like he had a viewmaster strapped to his face. This one seems reasonable in comparison...

They can't seriously be leaving Kyle as a white lantern can they? They HAVE to be fixing him soon after the series starts.

My thoughts about the art here is that it looks like Ethan Van Sciver is trying to do cheery heroes, but it looks very unnatural and odd. I think he's just not suited for something like that.

About Ed Benes... he's good at drawing girls, but his male characters often fall short to me. These pages don't change my views on that at all.

Fraud so. They seem to think that Kyle is best when he is basically invincible.

GL needs some new takes and new artists. Why does Simon have a face like Uncle Fester? And what is up with those panels from HJ & a bunch of losers nobody cares about whoops I mean the GLC? Yeesh.

I think it's because as we see in the next panel, Wonder Woman is lifting up her leg to show them her all her ass.(ironic that EVS shared a book with Ed "cheesecake" Benes and that's the most gratuitous shot in the book)

Because there's no other reason for it. Simon has teamed up with the League, he's IN Justice League United, so it's not like he should be so impressed to meet them...

Being in Justice League United is like being in the B Squad. He should be impressed.

Although really, it's not like the JLA has an internship program. The Teen Titans all got together because the adults were off playing together in the League. You're supposed to be a Big Gun to be in the League in the first place. (I'm pretty sure the Detroit League was part of those "missing 10 years" )

To be honest I'll only give it a first arc. Venditti has been mediocre at best on GL and based from one of his interviews I'm not surprised at all. He mentioned that before his gig he didn't know much about Hal and the GLC except from watching JLU and that his favorite lantern is John. No wonder his tenure has been so lackluster.

I think that TPTB have given him to really great artists, the book would keep dropping in the charts. Even his Valiant stuff have been dragging and becoming repetitive and boring. I still feel that we should have gotten a new writer like almost every other book.

It's possibly not even in continuity anymore, but I'd love to see the surviving "GLC" title gang get together for a mission: Hal, John, Arisia, Kilowog and Salaak. (I know Guy was there too, but he spent half the time trying to kill them all)

I wonder if all this Rebirthing might give Vendetti the opportunity to resurrect some of the cooler Lanterns that have been killed off. I know it was one plot point a while back that the new recruits were different because all of the typical ring bearer types were dead. That was good for an arc but I would prefer that some of the better recently 'dead' Lanterns be brought back. Not talking Abin Sur or Katma Tui, but like Kreon, Laira, Jack T Chance, Hollika Rahn. The GLC needs more kick butt members in it again.
