It wasn't that awful.

Decades after the fact, I'm still getting used to rings have a charge spent by use, and not an infinite charge that only exists for 24 hours... But all that with the batteries and rings running out was ridiculous.

I still remember thinking when Hal went insane, started killing Lanterns and wearing their rings "The rings channel his will power, multiple rings shouldn't make him any more powerful... Although insanity could multiply his will power, but that's neither here nor there."

This is actually the second week that prices didn't drop on digital comics as May was a five Wednesday month, but I am a little ticked that DC tried to sneak this through:

So this is good?

Rather than spending an extra dollar per book... You put your collection on snooze and take your wife, or significant other out to a fancy revolving restaurant with a massive seafood buffet.

And then pick up next moth when everything has settled.

When you don't go to a storefront every week, the monkeys behind the counter get bitchy about the stack building up from your pull list... Isn't it nice of comixollgy to take all the guilt out of the equation?

Jesus!

I wasn't that impressed with the Diggle/Daniel 3 parter on Action Comics, either. It's a real shame that they're having so much trouble doing good Superman stories in this huge reboot... of course, the reboot is part of the problem...

I just finished reading GL #21 and have to agree. Things seemed to be going great with Hal and Carol so it was kind of surprising to see the reversal in their relationship.

Astro City #1 was really good I thought, it was almost like we'd never left, except we did and Busiek is very aware of that. The art was great, and it looks like we have a brand new story as well. Sometimes DC does some very good things, bringing back Astro City is one of them IMO.

I actually thought the Action Comics three partner was decent. I was expecting much worse, but it was clear Daniel was writing from Diggle's scripts. I suppose Action Comics #21 was showing us how Luthor was imprisoned. It probably felt rushed because of Diggle's departure. The art was great and the World of Krypton backup story for me has been worth getting the book.

I fell off off Astro City during the seemingly unending Dark Ages arc, but this feels like coming home. And kudos to DC for continuing this creator owned book through their main imprint after the folding of Wildstorm.

LOL--you must have a hell of a pull list if saving a dollar a book can buy you that!

It makes me wonder how Johns was even allowed to write those epilogues. Honestly, I think this may the point where I stop reading Green Lantern until I hear that the next Geoff Johns has taken it and done something great with it. The end of GL #20 actually felt like the end of Green Lantern, and I would almost be ok if it were.

GL #20 made for the perfect jumping off point. Nice sense of closure. You never want that in a comic book. Now people can stop buying
