The "lightsmiths" really? I'm not at all interested in the GL stuff post Johns. It seems like Johns had this specific plan in mind all those years and everything other writers try to add (at least concerning the past of the universe) just makes things more complicated... in a bad way.

Does DC have a cosmic setting outside of the GL Corps?

Is it like Marvel's, where there are major empires and stuff like that?

I know about the New Gods, Mongul's world, and Krypton, but those are just a couple of planets. Is there anything like the Kree's hundreds of worlds or the Shi'ar's entire sector?

Really wish John's was still on the title...this is still good, but no where near John's run on the title, though admittedly it's still early days for this new run.

Feels like they're just going off of Johns and tying to add even more details and backstory to the different Lantern corps and what not; gets to the point where enough is enough, can't just keep adding stuff, just gets even more complicated. Would prefer if they maybe took it in a different direction, maybe again focusing it on being a "police" style corps..

Still enjoying this, like the direction they're taking Relic in

Green Lantern comics suck. Blackest Night was a cool idea but after that its been going downhill fast and steady.

y'all are silly butts. the emotional spectrum is a pretty damn cool thing for the lantern comics

[frick] all of the haters, Johns is overrated and his departure from the book loooooooooong overdue... Bring on the lightsmiths... I cant wait for lights out!

I love what Johns has added to the GL mythos but I miss the days when the GL Corps were space cops. I would like to see some non-emotional spectrum related threats pop up every once in a while. With [soon to be] five lantern books there should be enough breathing room for each of those books to explore some non lantern threats.

I love that word..."LIGHTSMITHS"! There's just this sound about it, that shows complete and utter control over the light of the spectrum!

Geoff's last run was amazing it really felt like the end to the Green Lantern story. I'm not going to give up on the current team, but I'm not to thrilled.
