    It looks like we're getting the Legion of Superheroes in issue six of Action Comics...but "suspiciously different versions" whatever this means.

    Well not as bad as I thought it would be:

    Chiang isn't off WW permanently and the other guy is only a fill-in.

    Waste of his talent. SS is a terrible book. Raney seems to have quite a bit of bad luck with DC books.

    Good that DC is hiring people from outside their traditional talent pools. Hope he is better than Marz.

    Excellent news. This guy is 2nd to JH Williams in terms of layouts. He did a great Action Comics Annual with Cornell.

    And sooner or later, they always want it to be about Hal.

    You know, the actual reason that Sinestro came almost straight to Hal is that the current story - snarky comic book reviewers to the contrary - is about Hal Jordan.

    Only to people who watch cartoons.

    Here are some other competitors for the coveted Miss Congeniality trophy: Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Alan Scott and G'nort.

    I really hope that this volume of Batman Beyond is better than the last volume...I gave up on it after two issues.

    He wanted to humiliate Jordan further by being the only reason he gets his powers back AND being able to take them away again when ever he feels like it.

    But seriously what the heck did Hal Jordon ever do to John's. Is this because his movie wasn't a major hit?

    Who probably outnumber the comic fans.

    Hal Jordan was restored as a Green Lantern by Geoff Johns who is responsible for increasing the characters popularity and sales. I think the problem is that he is getting tired of writing him but because GL's sales seem to be high he won't give up the book.
