Billy Tan is "ehh" to me, so I don't know how to feel about this.

I don't know how to feel about this . . . Somebody tell me if this is good or bad. Because I don't know any of those writers and artists (I'm more of a DC guy).

cool

You guys are sleeping on Billy Tan. He's done some amazing work for Marvel. Google his work.
PsyGuy - 2/20/2013, 8:44 AM
Billy Tan is awesome! Kinda excited for the changes...

The picture above doesn't due his body of work justice and seems distorted and pixelated anyway.

I'm torn on Larfleeze. I love the character, but I'm not a big fan of Scott Kolins.

As for Billy Tan...when he first started out at Marvel, he was pretty awful. But as the years have gone by, he's improved quite a bit. Still, his characters sometimes look ...off.

I'm with @Wingding, big DC and huge GL guy but not sure what to feel about this, don't really know these guys, although I did just google the artists and they seem........ok.

Vendetti, I just started reading his Demon Knights and I actually like it so maybe.

Justin Jordan, only read his brief stint on Deathstroke, was pretty decent so also maybe.

The I, vampire guy, never read it but heard good things so also maybe.

Kieth Giffen on Larfleeze, good, nice light comic relief but nothing to hold my breath on.

I'm kinda disappointed, GL is DC's biggest franchise after Batman, that's saying alot, I thought they would put more heavy hitters on this. oh well, time will tell.

Sweet a Larfleeze seriess, will defo add this one to my list.
IronHood - 2/20/2013, 9:30 AM
Larfleeze series? AWESOME!!! Hopefully it will be good & hopefully it'll be DC's answer to Deadpool? Hope so. Without the fourth wall of course.

@yossarian WTF is wrong with you? This article has NOTHING to do with Aquaman. WTF is your problem with him? Regardless, if you don't like him fine. Go be stupid & waste your useless time somewhere else. I wish Aquaman was real so he could kick your teeth in. Shut your stupid mouth. The millions of people who love Aquaman should do it instead.

@Wingding All of them are great writers and artists however Billy Tan seems to be love-him-or-hate-him. I personally like him this will polarize a lot of fans
Tomontherun99 - 2/20/2013, 10:28 AM
The line up sounds great but I'm just wondering whether Larfleeze can support a book by himself. He always worked as background comedy relief but I have a feeling it could get repetitive and dull after an arc or so. Griffen's a fantastic writer so I have faith that he knows that he's doing
MJPETTY7 - 2/20/2013, 11:57 AM
Kinda hoped that the writers of Green Lantern: The Animated Series would take over duties from Johns and his team... Oh well. I'll check Green Lantern out, but not to fond of the rest. Also, why give Larfleeze his own book!?!?!?!

if michael bay had no input on script or story, he would make a sweet-lookin' green lantern movie

thatcoldblackcloud - 2/20/2013, 1:02 PM
Well, I haven't read any of these guys' stuff, so It's a wait and see for me... as for the art on Green Lantern, ANYTHING is better than Dough Mahnke!!!
Tevii - 2/20/2013, 5:05 PM
After such a great run by Geoff Johns, Im nervous AND excited for this change.
CeltiC527 - 2/20/2013, 11:09 PM
I'm all for Robert Venditti but it's Billy Tan that somewhat concerns me, hopefully I have nothing to worry about...

I LOVE the "bath robe" Green Lantern. The look on his face truly conveys "Beware my power.....*ding*...oooh...hot pockets are done!"
