    If I can say anything about Morrison, he's probably going to give the title a new life once he's on it.

    True, but I think he's going to write only one comic, and it won't be that one. Also, it seems meaningful that DC is taking Baz and Cruz out of Justice League. That ends a very hard push they were getting. I suspect Dan Jurgens is coming on board to wind their comic down.

    They weren't when he was doing New X-Men at Marvel. He was turning in scripts leaving Igor Kordey about 2-3 days to do 20+ pages of pencils and inks to make shipping dates (part of the reason Korbdey's stuff looked as bad on that run compared to work he did elsewhere particularly in Europe where he wasn't rushing out pages ot make up for a writer who had no regard for deadlines or the rest of the creative team). Things may have changed, but Grant had a pretty bad rap for missing deadlines earlier in his career.

    Well, if it is true, it will no doubt work short term anyway.
    There's NO way I'm NOT picking up the first issue of a Grant Morrison Green Lantern book!
    (I haven't bought an issue since Johns' last issue.)
    An d I imagine I'm in the minority here either.

    Grant Morrison will make Green Lantern weird and I need that to happen very VERY badly. Consider me excited!

    Im excited. I could see him really digging into the GL Corps itself, and not just one Lantern.

    Why do you think their push is over just because they are out of the League? Being part of the JL is not always indicative if a character is being pushed or not. Sometimes it is like with Cyborg, others it's not.

    Jessica is out in what is probably the most exciting JL books coming out in July. I hardly see it as a demotion.

    The sales of Green Lanterns are dropping, and Cruz is being moved out of a plum, showcase role in Justice League and into a Justice League B title, which very reliably fail. Meanwhile, nobody is even talking about Baz. You can draw your own conclusion from that, but it doesn't look to me as if the push is still on.

    Maybe it'll be a hit. But as I said in another thread, the histories and the tendencies in this industry usually hold true. When someone says it's going to be different this time, is almost never is.

    This is an audience that doesn't change or grow very much. It's going to pretty much do what it's always done.

    If sales of solo books determined who made it on the Justice League, then Cyborg and Aquaman wouldn't be there too. Not to mention MM or Hawkgirl that don't even have solo titles.

    They're pushing those characters. The JL membership is who can sell plus who's getting a push. People plead loudly for the MM on the message boards, so at some point he'll probably get another title, but the usual outcome seems likely.

    The membership is which characters Snyder wanted to tell his stories with. He is a fan of the DCAU, that's why he wanted a roster similar to that version. Baz and Cruz aren't going anywhere.

    Sales matter, and their sales are in decline after a long hard push. They're out of Justice League, and I call that going somewhere. You're welcome to call it something else.

    Long hard push? They've been pushed for less than two years. I'd call Cyborg's push long and hard. Kyle was the main Lantern for a decade and it wasn't until Hal's return where they really pushed him to the side. Not even John's success on TV made them give up on Kyle at the time and that was when his sales were down too. I think only DC knows what basis they are pushing some of their characters on.
