DC Shocker: Green Lantern Titles to Crossover...AGAIN

This marks the third...fourth time that the books have crossed over in the last year?!



Source: Bleeding Cool

Bleeding Cool is reporting that the Green Lantern titles will crossover for a third time this year in an event entitled Lights Out.  This marks the third time in the last year that the Green Lantern books have crossed over with one another, following The Rise of the Third Army and Wrath of the First Lantern

DC seems obsessed with the crossovers as of late, whether it's Night of the Owls and Death of the Family over in the Batbooks, the Rise of H'el in the Superbooks, the Black Diamond crossover between all the soon to be cancelled/already cancelled series, the Trinity War and Rise of Atlantis JL crossovers or the linewide Villains Month and Zero Month events.

Marvel does this too, of course (Wolverine and the X-Men has had as many crossovers issues with events than it has independent issues), but it feels that DC can't go a single month without a lot of their top-sellers crossing over, especially during this last year. 

Now, this rumor hasn't been confirmed, but if it's true (and BC's been spot-on about this stuff recently), I think it'll be time to have a crossover intervention at DC.

DC I think you have a crossover problem. The first step is admitting it.

They should have at least given the new writers a few months to get their books going. :smt102

Ha. Well, I was planning on checking out Green Lantern: New Guardians to catch up with Kyle Rayner.

Now, I guess not!

I just always assume all the GL books crossover continually :smt102

Remember when a comic universe could feel cohesive without crossovers forcing titles to interact with each other? Course with DC now, even their crossovers aren't cohesive. :smt011

The only way I could ever be enthusiastic for a Green Lantern crossover again would be if it was 'The Death Of Larfleeze'.

this is kind of annoying... i wish they'd not crossover, there really hasn't been individual story lines since last year... i was helping my new roommate figure out what GL issues he missed and he's a little upset he has to find the last like 8 issues of every GL series to understand what's happening in GL (which is really the only book he wants to collect)

To be fair though, throughout both 'Rise Of The Third Army' and 'Wrath Of The First Lantern' each of the individual titles was mostly telling it's own stories. It's not like you had to be reading GLC to understand what was happening in GL: New Guardians.

Hell, I don't read Red Lanterns at all and I had no problem following the story.

actually Wrath of the First Lanterns WERE labeled part 1, part 2, it crossover into each title...

Vaguely it did crossover. I skipped Red Lanterns for Watch of the First Lantern and I was fine. Really most of the stories were done in one. Mind you I haven't read the last couple of issues of it so it may've changed for the last month.

Oh yeah, its only DC that has a problem with crossovers. Keep stroking that Bendis ego.
