    There was also the moment when Hal got his ring back during the Crisis that originally felt odd, but makes perfect sense now.

    Morrison has really done his research
    I would love to hear your take on the difference between a power ring and a lantern.

    Can a Lantern entern his personal lantern. Should a lantern have its own AI or just serve as a conduit.

    I believe the lantern is just a conduit to the Central Power Battery on Oa, whereas the rings contain the AI.

    In more relatable terms, the ring is your phone, while the lantern is simply the charger that connects to the electricity of the Central Power Battery on Oa.

    Of course, we know that the Central Power Battery once contained both the living entities of Ion and Parallax. Parallax could not affect Hal until he entered the Central Power Battery itself.

    The Green Lantern is the best selling non-Batman non-event book of DC, beating Superman, Action Comics and Wonder Woman.:

    Is GL going back to the Johns era of being DC's second biggest franchise?!?! We can only hope...

    I'm surprised The Green Lantern is doing as well as it has in single issues. Morrison's stuff tends to do much better in TPBs and digitally. Great to hear though.

    Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, & Green Lantern have always been the five great pillars of the DCU to me. For a while it seemed like GL had ceded that position to Aquaman, but maybe I was wrong.

    I had a bit of catching up to do with this title so I have avoided this thread for the last few months but I've now caught up to issue 6 and wow, what a book. Morrison is probably my favourite superhero comics writer and he has more than lived up to his reputation with this book.

    That it has loads of wild ideas is to be expected but it works on so many levels. I love how each issue is a fully formed thing unto itself even as it is part of an ongoing narrative. I love the snappy dialogue and the way he gives different dialogue styles to different species of alien. I freaking love his take on Hal after being fairly lukewarm about the character pretty much since Johns brought him back all those years ago. Morrison talked about how different Hal is from him (he admits that writing Kyle, however, fits like a glove) and he really leaned into Hal's alpha nature but without letting that become obnoxious or, worse, fall into the "toxic-male" trap. And after years of the Rainbow Corps being done to death, it's such a pleasure to read a take on GL that emphasizes both the cop aspects of the character and just how mad it must be to be a space-cop in the first place.

    As for the art, I thought that Liam Sharpe was totally overshadowed by both Nicola Scott and Bilques Evely (apologies if the spelling is as wrong as I think it is on both) on Wonder Woman but in just these six issues, he has easily established himself as one of the definitive Green Lantern artists ever. Borrowing heavily from Neal Adams (THE definitive Hal artist) but filling up each panel with tons of detail and imagination that somehow actually matches Morrison, he is just perfect for this book. Plus, the rich, vibrant colours by Steve Oliff enhances Sharpe's work beautifully and makes it a particular pleasure to read the Green Lantern on DC's terrific new paperstock.

    What about that issue #8? Taking the classic story, flipping it over and adding some Morrison weirdness.

    I read Kirby's Green Arrow run a few years back and really enjoyed it for his art and Dave Wood's surprisingly deft for the early Silver Age scrips, so i got a huge kick out of the Xeen Arrow subplot. Fun stuff all around!

    Nothing more fun than using a giant bow to shoot an arrow at someone on the moon while you're trippin' balls.

    And from a different dimension nonetheless.
