    Default Rebirth: Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps To Bring Back More Classic DCU Elements.

    From Newsarama.

    Sounds good to me. I look forward to seeing what Venditti and co do with the book.

    I still feel kind of burned by Venditti...

    I don't really like Venditti, but as long as he puts the right pieces in place, we should get some good stories with whoever replaces him.

    Venditti's really got one more shot with me - depending on how he handles Hal v. Sinestro. That smug yellow bastard has a beat-down coming ...

    When Kyle shows up, it'll be for a very important reason, and it'll be to do something that only he can do.
    Interesting....

    While I would have preferred someone like Cullen Bunn to write this, I'm hopeful that Venditti will do a good job with all the various lanterns that we've come to enjoy over the years and hopefully carry on everything that was good about Sinestro's ongoing.

    However if I have one complaint it's that Rebirth has been confusing on the missing Green Lanterns and Hal back as a green lantern timeline. It doesn't add up that Simon and Jessica are still around when the Corps are missing, especially when they were around when Jessica became a green lantern or how so far Hal's been in Lantern Uniform where he's clearly renegade when this starts out. But hopefully that will be explained soon.

    Sciver's artwork looks fantastic. Venditti can do solid character work so hopefully the big cast will provide more opportunities for it.

    I really want to jump on board with this, but I'm not a fan of Venditti's GL writing (his XO is solid though). This is going to be a bit of a tough sell for me despite the awesomeness that is Van Sciver and Sandoval.

    I wouldn't hold my breath. Unless they planned it from the start (which is highly doubtful), any ridiculous explanation would only lead to another Crisis......

    All they really need to do is ignore Jessica's statement that the corps is missing. The rest isn't as difficult to line up. (depending of course on HJ & GLC Rebirth)

    Also, I hadn't been reading "Sinestro," but is there any way HE was the one responsible for the GLC's disappearance?? It would of course tie up loose ends while increasing Sin's status as the BIG bad of the GLC. Even if they hadn't planned it that way, does anyone know if anything we've seen dispells the notion that he might have done it? (I know it was an excuse for him to draft Soranik into the Sinestro Corps .... interesting coincidence.....)

    Gonna wait until Kyle Rayner shows up to get into this series, hope DC would not try to kill him again this time.

    It's not explained there. Just that Sinestro had learnt that something was going to take the Corps through Lyssa Draks visions of the future and he set things in place to put the Sinestro Corps as their replacements.

    It's actually GL: Lost Army that hints at who the culprit is spoilers:
    it looked like Hal that locked them away in the pre-universe. I'm assuming it might be Parallax Hal that survived from Convergence
    end of spoilers

    Nah Sinestro didn't cause it. Granted he didn't warn anyone besides his daughter. But in no way did he cause it. He just moved into position to takeover when the GLC went bye bye. I mean he had a solo series. So if he did do it you find out there and he didn't do anything like that.

    I'm going to follow Kyle's example and remain reserved then as I'm really only interested in him. Will keep one eye out for future apppeasrances and possibly get the trade arc. Didn't care for his The Flash run.
    Parental care is way exhausting. Gained insight into what my parents went through when I was a baby. Not fun, but what ya gonna do? (Read comics, obviously.)

    Nah. That was just a classic misunderstanding. If you read the "GL" issue, you'll see what was going on from the other side.

    Venditti: Oh, definitely other things. Definitely other things. I would say, without giving too much away, we are definitely going to be bringing things back. [Laughs]

    I am so glad I'm not the only one who immediately thought of Itty. Itty was a lot a fun. DC needs an Itty. Maybe a team up book with the little monster from Bizarro?
