It's like, one step away from what DC have been doing with the creative teams of Constantine and Batgirl.

They need someone who can reboot their cosmic line.

Take Loeb.

Please.

NO STAY AWAY FROM DNA.
Please go back to GotG or Nova DNA...

Hmn... Giffen seems to be doing more cosmic recently...

Wow! That is a huge demotion! The initials to Green Lantern are GL and the initials to Justice League are JL. J is 3 whole letters later in the alphabet! He might as well go write indy comics for Fat Bob!

Johns has been the real star of this book without a doubt
He's really DC's only true superstar
Without him, I suspect interest in the GL books will obviously trail off, and sales will slowly drift downward
heck of a run, but GL was one of the few DC books untainted for the most part by the reboot and so was still of interest to me. that probably ends now.

Yeah. Aside from Grant Morrison, of course. Oh, and Scott Snyder. And Jeff Lemire. Also, Brian Azzarrello. And James Robinson.

I hope Johns goes out on a high note to cap this remarkable run, but this half of his run on GL has been underwhelming.
