Yeah....as big a Lantern fan as I am (and I am a huge Green Lantern fan) after reading this, I'm considering just letting the end of Johns' run be the end of my reading the book for the moment. I mean, it wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't good. If it weren't for character loyalty, I wouldn't consider continuing.
It feels like there's been some character backpedaling already, with Hal, Carol, and even Larfleeze all acting much differently than they were before. Hal's gone back to deadbeat boyfriend, Carol is back to "I love you, but get it together." There's also a bit of a kitchen sink feeling to this issue, like they tried to throw too much in at once and it winds up feeling unfocused.
