Nope - as noted above, she never existed for Superboy to punch away. She, like most of THE SPECTRE series, was a Parallax construct. Part of Sinestro's scheme.

As can I.

Although I admit that the ring thing does bug me from time to time, but it's not a big deal as these things go.

Well, no. The cancellation is a fact.

Anything beyond that one fact is a rumor. I would really like to believe that the book is being re-launched with a new focus, but there's no evidence of that...

The question is: Is GA being relaunched almost immediately?

I would love that to be the case, but the only "proof" put forth so far is an unconfirmed rumor.

When is it ever said "factually" that a book is cancelled due to low sales?

Generally speaking, that is the standard reason for a cancellation (exceptions such as MOSAIC notwithstanding, but we have...

I would love that to be the case, but AFAIK that is only a fan rumor. I'm not aware that DC has ever said anything about it.

I think that's so much less interesting than him being a great GL who is seduced by the power and turns evil.

Did you think so?

Reading the trade, I found that issue very jarring, especially when compared with the issues that came before and after it.

In many cases, I would agree with you. But even though the storyline itself was editorially mandated, I think he does have to take some of the responsibility for the crafting of EMERALD TWILIGHT,...

No, thanks. I've had too much of the separation of characters, trying to find something "special" about each.

Ganthet is one among equals, as the Guardians were always intended to be.

So what, he shouldn't have taken the job?

I hated ET and what it did to the Corps for a decade, and I'll admit that I'm not Ron's biggest fan. But the man has to eat - what else should he have done...

What examples can you give?

Other than the few scattered guest-appearances (and the FINAL NIGHT tie-in, which I didn't like at all), I'm having a hard time coming up with samples of Marz's approach.

I would tend to agree, which is why I'm not in favor of fill-in artists. They break the flow of the trade.

I'd rather see 1 or 2 skipped issues a year, because that will be forgotten by the time...

Thanks for the post - I love Geoff's take on Hal. He's nailed it - Hal is James Bond.

What's so ironic is that Gerard Jones tried to do the exact same thing a decade and a half ago, but was told by...

For my own part, I think this has already been over-done. Played out. It's like destroying the Corpsm, or a rebel who constantly strains to fit within the confines of the Corps - a tired old story,...

Well, yes and no.

On a character level, REBIRTH was built on a foundation of respect for all the characters, finding a unified whole in which all of them can work. No character had to be killed to...

That's pretty much my personal definition of "canon" - unless somebody directly contradicts it with an idea that brings more value, it's canon.

Because if they wanted direct oversight, they would have stuck with the Manhunters.

One bad apple in several millennia doesn't exactly speak of an organizational failure.

I don't know about that.

The Guardians have always been very "hands off" where the Lanterns are concerned. One bad apple doesn't seem a good reason to change that.

Besides, the Guardians value the...

Don't know about that. The Guardians give Lanterns a whole lot of leeway on how they deal with their sectors.
