    But yeah this is shoving a LOT of characters into one book, even with double shipping. I foresee many people not being happy with the amount of page time their favorites get.
    I hear ya, but look at the writer behind it. He does not write a compelling Hal Jordan.

    Fans have been complaining about the lack of equal representation with Earth GL's since forever.

    It's great EVS is back on GL, but the circumstances are less than ideal.

    They need to drop Hal's name from the title, and get a writer who can balance a large cast with great sci-fi.

    This book will be under a lot of scrutiny.

    I would rather hand the book over to J.M. DeMatteis & Keith Giffen.

    I do not think that it is necessary to drop Hal's name he is a big draw. I for one am still on the fence because of Venditti but if the reviews are good, I'll probably trade wait it.

    I think the book is going to be about them trying to get back the trust of the galaxies at large as a police force. It would be nice to see a fully functional green lanturn core again with our boys at the core of it.

    DC did not use Hal's name in the title when the book was changed to the GLC after the first crisis.

    His name on the title does not help unite the fractured fan base.

    But as you posted, with the writer, a lot of people will trade wait.

    Not many fans are winning, so far.

    I hope Venditti does a few interviews to give fans a feel of how the series will unfold.

    I don't know about that, yeah Hal is probably the most popular GL, but it's not like his name would make a difference in sales. I mean Hal is not exactly Bruce Wayne, and I don't even recall DC calling a Batman title "Bruce Wayne", so putting Hal's name there doesn't make that much sense. It's just because he is the proverbial "main" GL and they gotta protect the guy since he is all over the DC merchandise, which I understand. I'd check out the book but I don't expect much.

    I imagine Guy fans are missing Tomasi.

    A sound strategy, indeed.

    And I know John fans are missing Van Jensen. I'm one of them.

    TBH Both Van Jensen and Venditti have not done anything phenomenal with the franchise. IMO Ven Jensen is no big loss.

    A lot of Hal Jordan fans feel that way about Van Jensen. I love the entire Corps, and I like to see the other members get their turn at being featured. Van Jensen did a terrific job with John Stewart, in fact his run was the last thing actually worth reading in the franchise.

    But hey, just my opinion.

    So What are the difference going to be between Green Lanterns and HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS other than the main characters?
