Default Is it good having everyone crammed into one book? Is it working?

I haven't read any H&TGLC (and what a very unfortunate title, really), so I'm genuinely curious. It's great to see EVS doing good amounts of GL again, but I'm not convinced this book would be a wholly satisfying experience for me.

The GLC was fun, if often tediously stretching out stories to 5 issues just "because the trade, brah!" but never really provided any meaningful character arcs for... well, really anyone at all, given the nature of so many people under one roof.

By that token, this seems significantly worse. How can Kyle, Guy or John get any kind of noteworthy character arcs if they have to play house with one another and STILL allow Hal to undeservedly be the titular "top dog"? I'm not sure it's possible. I mean, maybe over the course of 2 years (24 issues) there could be like one Kyle arc, or something interesting happening to Guy that changes him... but the same kind of stuff that could happen in, say, 1 issue of a Kyle series, or 5 issues of a "normal" GLC book.
