    He's the main character. Of course he's going to experience most of the rings firsthand.

    That's what I'm saying. I like seeing Hal going through all this crazy ****. Maybe it's because I'm a newer reader and I haven't really been reading in chronological order just reading stuff from Rebirth and up but I like all the different Corps and rings. There is this underlying philosophy in all of this that is just deeply fascinating to me. The most heinous, hate filled of the lanterns, the red are all really for the most part victims. The soldiers of compassion are in truth the universe's worst sadists. Love is just as intoxicating and all encompassing as rage can be. I just love how deep it all really is. Even when it gets goofy or somewhat poorly written it's still better than any other stuff out there I've been read in a LONG time. I'm getting to the point that I'm loving GL just as much as Batman.

    Are the Guardians going to get a Parallax kind of retcon in the future? I still think their current behavior is very out of nowhere.

    I don't see how it's out of nowhere. They've always been *****. It's just getting worse, leading up to this.

    I don't understand what's up with Ganthet? There's still plenty of stuff I haven't read but last I read he was still guardian for the Blue Lanterns and Sayd was Larfleeze's guardian. What went down for him to have rejoined the guardians?

    The Guardians brainwashed him into being one of them again.

    It's always one of the month's top sellers. As long as he has stories to tell, they're not gonna remove him. I'm enjoying it.

    I'm not a big fan of it, myself.

    The plotting is very decompressed and the art highly mediocre.

    But most people seem to like it for the character interaction.

    Yeah, the character interaction is where New Guardians shine. That and Glomulus.

    I really disliked the first issues, but now it's been very cool

    John Stewart was going to executed for murdering a fellow green lantern in the first arc because he was going to give information to the enemies, all the Green Lanterns decided to fight the Alpha Lanterns instead and save Stewart

    The Ganthet thing technically happened at the end of the War of the Green Lanterns: Aftermath 2 parter. The NG issue just showed the aftermath of well...the aftermath.

    GLC has been alright. I think anybody who had any issues with the Alpha Lanterns all these years like I did will walk away pretty satisfied with the recent happenings in that book. Good riddance.
