    HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #48
    written by ROBERT VENDITTI
    art by RAFA SANDOVAL and JORDI TARRAGONA
    cover by DOUG MAHNKE
    variant cover by TYLER KIRKHAM
    The Green Lanterns fight alongside the Guardians of the Universe! The murderous Darkstars arrive en masse at Mogo to wipe out the Corps for good, so it's all hands on deck to save the GL headquarters. Meanwhile, Green Lanterns Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner & Kyle Rayner make their respective battle plans, but time's running out for a miracle. Can we move Daylight Savings to July to get that extra hour? Our boys and girls in green are gonna need it.

    Allied with evil! With all hope failing, the desperate Green Lantern Corps must ally itself with the monstrous Hector Hammond against the unstoppable might of the Darkstars.

    Nice.

    Looks like Venditti is throwing in everything but the kitchen sink in for his last hurrah.

    I see the Darkstars, Hector Hammond, Orion for the NG, Arkillo for the Sinestro corps and even Zod.

    I'm not a huge fan of this cover. Doug was either in a hurry or he has a lousy colorist who thinks Jordan has white boots and Stewart has white gloves. And apparently unless she makes a cameo in #50, we won't get to see Carol after all.

    So, it appears that Dan Jurgens is taking over Green Lanterns. Not sure if he's just doing a fill-in run or if this is a long-term thing. I don't think he's the promised big name that's taking over the GL franchise. He's a perfectly competent writer, but I don't think anyone would expect him to get fans excited.

    Grant Morrison still seems like the most likely choice to me, although it's possible Hickman has been lured over from Marvel.

    Deniz implied it'll at least be someone on Morrison/Hickman's level.

    Jurgens would be a MASSIVE disappointment after names like Hickman, Morrison and King have been floated around.

    I think it's pretty clear Jurgens is just a fill-in on Green Lanterns and that the title is heading to some kind of conclusion like the other GL book is.

    I don't see DC plopping the new main GL writer on the last few issues of Green Lanterns.

    I personally didn't think Green Lanterns would exist as currently constructed after issue say 52.

    I actually love Jurgens so I'm conflicted. Would want to pick up GLS because I love Jurgens writing but I can't stand Baz. Jessica is ok though.

    But I agree with everyone. Jurgens is probably a fill in.

    Wild speculation could Par(Hal)lax be in control of the Darkstars since it didn't appear that the Controllers were running things? He could face the combined might of the GLC, Zod, Arkillo and Orion.

    Didn't even think of that. Totally forgot about Hallax. But that would be a cool plot twist.

    Oh and I totally missed that Mike Perkins was on art. I love his art on Iron Fist. Guess this is his DC debut.

    Now I may actually pick this up just for Jurgens and Perkins despite Baz in this.

    Maybe Tomasi will be back? Since Superman and Action Comics will both be taken by Bendis.

    Agreed: this is far from Mahnke's best, and the colors are totally flat (not to mention incorrect).

    I did, however, really like the first chapter of the Darkstars arc. That's some good long-game planning on Venditti's part. Kudos.

    As for who's taking over after he leaves, I'm still rooting for Hickman, and Jurgens on Green Lanterns seems like a placeholder until they either end that book or they figure out what they wanna do with it in the long term.
    What can I say but, "I love comics."
