The GL franchise definitely peaked with Blackest Night, but I did enjoy "War of the Green Lanterns". The main book has always been good. I absolutely loved GLC in the early days with the Patrick Gleason art (he draws the best aliens and planets period).

I'd say the GL franchise peaked with the Sinestro Corps War and gradually fell off after that, with a big slip after Blackest Night. I dropped all the relaunched books after the first issues.

Sinestro Corps was better than Blackest Night, but BN was the natural climax of the story.

Top ten titles: All Star Western, Demon Knights, Batwing, Justice League Dark, I, Vampire (who knew?), Wonder Woman, Frankenstein, Action, Justice League. Er ... I don;t seem to have come up with ten. I do love Batwoman, but I'm not reading it until the trade because it isn't served well by the Comixology format.

The new Shazam (er Captain Marvel).

Not sure I like this...Johns quote made me laugh. A lot of people think Captain Marvel's name was Shazam? Who did they think the Wizard was then? The Wizard?

Sadly over the years I've heard plenty of people who thought that Captain Marvel was named Shazam. It's not nearly as common as people who call Spock "Doctor Spock" though.

I'm a tad suprised they didn't go with Captain Thunder.

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/jame...s-earth-2.html

James Robinson talks about Earth 2 and the first look at the new Jay/Flash on the cover to issue 2.
I wonder if he gets his speed from the helmet?

I looks like a bastardization of the Evil Flash from Earth 3 or 2 from continuities ago. Johnny Quick of the Crime Syndicate.

And it looks fucking awful.

Yeah, I've been excited for Earth-2 but each announcement/interview cuts into my enthusiasm a little bit. I don't really want to see an Elseworlds Trinity. I don't really want the connection with WWII severed. I wouldn't mind seeing something like Robinson's JLA on Earth-2, actually. But it's clear as day we're just getting an angrier Justice League.

The Robinson interview at least gives me a little hope that they're planning something with some of the original Titans.

Where is the JSA supposed to be in all the new 52 business? or is all of this just an elaborate plot to erase them all?

Pretty much everything I've read about Earth 2 so far makes me not want to read it at all.

I was willing to give a chance, now I don't care about it at all.

For the life of me, I look at that picture of Cap, um, I mean "Shazam," and I picture him screaming how he's now "exxxxxtreeeeemmmmmeee...."
