    I honestly think one of thing that is killing Hal for me is the speed at which we get his solo book. We havn't got issue #11 yet, but the book has been running about 15 months?

    The slow pace of the books release seems coupled with the slow and boring antics of the protagonist.

    i guess since i'm a big green arrow fan i've always had an appreciation for his and hal's relationship, also for hal himself.

    The Flash's OYL stuff is not out yet. I think it starts in another month, sometime near the end of June.
    If recognition were any benchmark for quality, Wolverine would be better than every other Marvel character combined except for Spider-Man. :o

    Anyway, it wasn't an argument. I just gave my opinion on Hal, which is that he ain't got **** on Alan or Kyle or Guy or Kilowog. The only Lantern I'd take Hal over, really, is John, and that's just because John is probably the single most boring comic book character ever created.

    Technically, nowaday if you poll people on the streets theyll tell you Green Lantern is black.

    Also a good point. Even though the cartoon John isn't much like the comic John, he's probably at least as recognizable as Hal at this point. I'm just waiting for the comics to have John shave his head and join the Army.

    I think John could be interesting without reverting him to the militaristic cartoon version. Plus, it always feels kind of wrong when other media portrayals influence the comics' portrayals to me.

    Still, John needs to be more interesting.

    I doubt he ever will be. Maybe before, when Kyle was around as the main GL, he stood a shot of stealing some limelight. But now that he's in the GL ongoing as nothing but Earth's second-string GL and Hal's backup, he's pretty much doomed to sit on the sidelines while Johns puts the equivalent of a Hal Jordan Silver Age status quo orgasm on every page. :(

    During the first 24 or so issues, it was the best selling Bat-title.

    I haven't been able to read the OYL arc, so I was wondering if anyone can post some scans just to see how Jason and Dick look like and Dick's apparent new costume from number 118.

    Thanks in advance.

    That explains a lot then. I stopped reading the Batman titles right around when Nightwing # 1 was coming out.

    Missed out on good stuff apparently. But that's what back issues are for. :up:

    not sure if its an imposter or a dream sequence or something... the imposter kills the joker... doubt DC would let that slide... a little off topic... how was jasons relationship with bruce? like was bruce harder on him than on nightwing?

    well that i knew... i just cant remember if bruce was always favoring dick (snicker!) over jason... THAT could have made this story line awesome... taking out aggression from always being in dick's shadow... like "im just as good if not better than you and ill prove it to you and bruce by doing YOUR job as nightwing" and then going off the deep end and capping villains...

    Whoever takes over Nightwing from Bruce Jones better bring their A-game. I was kinda mad that Didio said he wanted Nightwing dead at the end of Infinite Crisis, but he did take my comic I created and read it, so all's forgiven. Anyway, for all you Nightwing fans, he said to look out for Nightwing #125. Better have some answers dammit!

    Nightwing's all uncharacteristic in Outsiders now, too.
    Superman calls him on the ******ed bull**** he and the Outsiders have been pulling, so he threatens Supes with Kryptonite?
    Seriously, when did Nightwing take over Batman's role as the DC universe's resident prick?
