    I had the opposite reaction. While HJGLC was better than his earlier run, his Hal was still entirely one-dimensional and came across as an obnoxious caricature of an action hero, quipping silly lines...

    Yeah, I concur, it was overall a perfectly serviceable story with not much meat to it. Great art, a few fun moments here and there, good for casual readers as you put it.

    I liked what the story was going for but that gun-toting look was somewhat over-the-top and funny, lol. Couldn't they have tried to give him a cooler look. But it did show that Hal was a hero, with...

    I agree, not knocking Kyle but I've never really found pop culture osmosis-driven "cool" constructs to be such an interesting selling point, though it's definitely cool to see. A "wishing ring" on...
