Pull List 12: So how old IS Hal, now...?

Apparently DC's determined to explain at least a fourth of their line to us before the week is over, as we've just learned about their Green Lantern books. So, without waiting, we'll go ahead and start with...

Green Lantern
Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Doug Mahnke & Christian Alamy

To my surprise, I'm just not all that hyped for this book. I mean, Geoff's a great writer, but up to this point, the coolest thing about the New DCU, was that it didn't bother keeping EVERYTHING secret.

The other ten books have a very clear opening statement. Nothing big--nothing that gives away the story, just 1-3 sentences that provide a good hook. Green Lantern couldn't even give us that:

Geoff Johns has been charting the adventures of Hal Jordan and the GREEN LANTERN Corps since GREEN LANTERN: Rebirth, collaborating with such major artists as Ethan Van Sciver, Darwyn Cooke, Prentis Rollins, Marlo Alquiza and Mick Gray.

This fall, Johns reunites with artists Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy, as the series begins anew with GREEN LANTERN #1 with cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Together they will continue to thrill readers and expand the Green Lantern mythos.

Change is coming. But set aside your fear. It’ll be worth the wait.

That's...a press release. And not really a good one, at that. There's no real information to be had. What's the next threat? Are we back to Earth stories or is Green Lantern still one gigantic space opera?

This didn't tell me anything. As a result, I don't have much to say about it. Moving on...
