    Hmmm:

    1. Hal's getting a modified Costume. Wish I can post a link, but I cant.

    2. He's getting a new job And new villains.

    3. The Corps are back....

    4. the theme of the title is fear and how to conquer it....

    5. As for rebirth, its Written by Geoff Johns and Penciled by Ethan Van Schiver. It'll feature all the GL's, the Justice League, etc. Geoff's said that Batman is kind of a villain in this.

    6. The Team for the regular book is Johns and Carlos Pacheco

    I thought he wasn't getting new villains so much as the old villains were getting revamped?

    Nope, new villains and revamped villains. There's going to be a new version of Shark as well...

    I remember an old Superman comic that had the subtitle "Jaws of the Shark!" on the cover. I remember buying it thinking "sweet, Superman is gonna fight Jaws!" I was disappointed. :(

    I miss Hal's gray streaks. :(

    I take it by Kilowog's costume that the new Corps is going to be using John's costume as their new "uniform." I'm wondering how Johns is gonna have Kilowog not kill Hal the moment he lays eyes on him, much less rejoin the Corps...

    By Batman being a "sort of" villain, do you mean he's gonna be dogging Hal, just waiting for a sign that he's turning again? Batman's made no small secret of the fact that he thinks Hal pretty much used all his chances up when he became Parallax.

    I haven't been collecting GL but I know the basic history of Hal and GL and Parallax. Do you think Rebirth will be a good jumping on point?

    Rebirth would be pretty much the perfect jumping-on point. If you have an interest in Kyle at all, you might also want to get the last few issues of the current GL series. I think the final arc began in #176 and will end with the series' ending in #181 this month.

    OK, thanks. Hopefully they'll release trades for GL and I'll be able to buy those.

    The suits have to be finalized, so kilowog wont look like that.


    I dont really know how they'll make Batman the villain. They'll probably just have him be paranoid and stuff. You'd think Batman would forgive him after Hal used his powers to help him see his parents. Thats what i heard anyway.

    I think everything will be figured out in Rebirth

    The costume looks fine to me, but that mask bugs me. I looks like a green butterfly or moth was slapped on his face.

    I thought Kilowog was killed by Hal during Emerld Twilight? Did he come back?

    Most of the people that will supposedly come back were killed by Hal i think. He destroyed the whole corps and oa.

    Kilowog came back as a villain, then Kyle helped resurrect him fully, which returned him to normal.

    I'd rather see the Neal Adams version of the costume.

    This one looks a little lame. At least we have the rough equivalent of Hal's costume.

    I'm wondering how Hal is just going to get his spot back in the corps, going off the deep end and killing a bunch people. Should be intresting to see what happens, but I certainly hope Kyle isn't going to be leaving us. All the Spider-Man comparisons that ppl have made seemto be true? On how this is a real guy with real problems, looking into what's happen with him recently. That's what got me intrested in picking up the GL book.

    But with Hal coming back, makes me wonder how much room is left in the DCU for this many GL's. And that maybe one of the current GL's will have to become a sacrificial lamb. And with the success of the JLA cartoon's team line-up, I don't think John Stewart is going anywhere anytime soon, but hope it's Kyle isn't either...

    The thing with the 'real guy with real problems' deal is it really shouldn't apply to a book about a guy who's supposed to have a limitless imagination, an unbreakable will, and the most powerful weapon in creation.

    Only thing that bugs me about Hal coming back is... well, the guy tried to destroy the entire goddamn universe. There's guys locked up for life because they killed two or three people -- it really should take a damn sight longer than ten years to redeem you for univercide. So, that aspect of bringing him back had better be damn well addressed.

    Toyfare shows the new Green Lantern figures that are coming out next year, this line goes hand in hand with the new series and it showed Hal, Kilowag, Black Hand, and Parallax two heros and two villains, hhmmm....you think they are gonna pull some lets split the bad Hal persona from the good Hal and that will make everything alright do ya?
    That would explain Hal looking so young now.
