    The book is getting better (the last issue was actually pretty good), but there still some serious improvement to be made, especially artwise. The art in the book is just sooo bland. The fill in artist for the last issue was way better than Tan's usual work. I'd put Rocafort on the book instead of Teen Titans. The arcs need to get shorter (how long have we been dealing with Durlans now?), and with more imaginative villains and supporting Lanterns.

    The spectrum being a non-renewable resource needs to get cleared up quickly, because it just sucks out a large amount of appeal the GL universe used to have. Being a limitless superhero in a limitless world is a big reason why I like GL comics.

    I think all these plot threads will get cleared up by September (or hope they do), and Venditti can move on to more space exploration and weird sci fi concepts.

    I'd love to see Rocafort on the book. That said I'd like to see the story issues fixed first too.

    GL sales have dropped considerably, so it's not even like this is being that well received. Eventually DC will have to think of some way to fix this or go with booting Venditti off.

    Yep.

    I'd really just like to see Hal delve into the magical world. At first glance he'd be out of his depth completely, but imagination and willpower are key elements to magic.

    //and after all, his ring basically works on space magic anyway, which is part of why that reservoir idea is so horrible

    Probably Hector Hammond. Johns did a really good job of making him super creepy during his run.

    There's also a bunch of others I really love. Even though the concept in and of itself is ridiculous, I've always really been partial to Goldface. Its a concept that's so silly that its awesome, and honestly hope he gets utilized more. Hopefully, the right writer comes along to reinvent him. Actually, I think I still have the comic of his original debut.

    I also really like Mark Richards Tatooed Man

    Looking at that picture, I can't believe they got the movie costume so wrong.

    Hope they improve it for the justice league movie!

    That is an incredible pic. Doug Manke is such an amazing artist. Severely underrated!

    That final issue was just full of great moments like that. I'd probably have hated it if it was in any other comic, but here it just worked.

    There's a rumour floating around about Chris Pine being re-approached for Hal but probably just a rumour.

    Rumour here.

    I doubt it, considering how many rumours about the current DC movies how been proven false. Pine fits the part, but it strikes me as a typecast considering his Kirk. I'd rather they go for the unknown.

    I do think Hal's be in the Justice League movie, though.





    Not a fan of Lee's work, but his Hal is nice.

    I wouldn't mind that. Pine seems to be able to pull of that Captain Kirk cocky space explorer swagger that Hal embodies, though I do agree with Mr. Mastermind that going for an unknown would be the stronger choice.

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

    Agreed. But I wouldn't mind Pine. Or Jensen Ackles.

    Chris Pine as Hal Jordan would just be Ryan Reynolds redux at this point.

    WB would only be after him because of the success of the Star Trek movies, but outside of that he is practically an unknown.
