Volthoom is on the cover of Green Lantern #20, Johns' final issue. So I assume that's the end and that's when he targets Hal.

SO Volthoom lasts till Johns' final issue. A little disappointed

I have found the fundamental problem with G.L. books, and it's been going on since the Sinestro Corps War. Every time there is an event that crosses over the titles, e.g., SCW, BN, WotGL, Wof1L, every damn book tells the same story. New Guardians and Green Lantern Corps were the same damn story this week. It's been going for years. These titles become too indistinguishable when these big events happen. Hopefully when the new creative teams come on board, the books won't be so parallel.

I've never heard of Justin Jordan. I'll try his run out for a few issues, but I may end up taking it as a nice jumping-off point for New Guardians. Shame, though. Bedard's been doing a pretty good job with NG so far (although it has been a little too reliant on the Alex thing, which keeps coming up way more often than it should for something so long ago in Kyle's career).

Ugh, that's a fair point, unfortunately. And I guess neither Donna nor Jade are in there now, since they no longer exist. I don't even know if Soranik does. Dang, I guess Alex really was the only love of Kyle's life. Didn't really occur to me that his serial monogamist reputation had taken such a hit with the continuity changes...

Oh, okay. I read some of GL Corps after the New 52 and I didn't recall seeing her, so I wasn't sure. So Kyle's at least got one other lady on his record besides Alex.

Of course, their breakup must've happened differently given that Jade no longer exists... Bleh, now my head hurts.

Yeah, she was a big part of his series for a long time (unfortunately).

I'm still wrapping my brain around Hal going crazy after Coast City was destroyed during the Reign of the Supermen... when there WAS no Reign of the Supermen.

That nearly kills any interest I have in Green Lantern right there. Sort of a big plot hole right in the center of the most important Green Lantern moment in 30 years.

They need to write a mini detailing how Coast City was destroyed without Superman ever having died. If they can somehow bring Cyborg Superman into the story without the Reign of Supermen and then bring Parallax in to enhance his becoming evil... and make it all work... then I'd be cool with it.

Well, Doomsday still killed Superman, so Hank Henshaw's part of "Reign of the Supermen" might still be in there.

New 52 Superboy was just created like ten minutes ago, I thought. He is, for all intents and purposes, an entirely new character. Conner Kent stopped existing.

I thought it was said when the relaunch first happened that Superman never died?

I actually liked NG and GL this month. I still don't care for Baz that much but I do like the idea that The First Lantern is an actual threat unlike the third army.

And that he feeds primarily on emotions and misery is such an interesting concept. It's like Hammond, but to the extreme!! I do love how he treated Kyle and was almost impressed with him. I can't wait to see what he does with John's past and am hoping that it's not too similar with Guy's thing.

Agreed, I think Volthoom is a great villain so far, let's hope these next issues stay strong.

I'm glad I'm not the only one diggin Volthoom. The art in NG was cool just the way he was like pulling on emotions like puppet strings is rad. Hopefully it goes somewhere these next few issues especially with this being Johns' last arc
