So...I've been thinking about the current state of the Green Lanterns. My beloved beloved Green Lanterns. I do believe they are in something of a rut. Hell, I think that the entire DC Line is in a rut. Now that they've thrown out all those years of precious continuity, the editors and writers, seem at something of a loss. Writers come and writers go, some of them before they've actually...written a single issue, which I find to be...peculiar. Writers are fired and then rehired. What the heck is going on?
I think that a lot of this has to be hard of Geoff Johns, which brings me back to my Lanterns. I am very fond of Geoff Johns, and I enjoy his writing...most of the time. Lately though, I believe his wheels to be spinning. And part of that can relate to the fact that there is no continuity for him to go spelunking through. If there is one thing that Geoff Johns is very good at, it is poking around the forgotten corners of DC history, and coming up with tiny wisps of stories, that can be caressed and cleaned off and spun into the finest threads of gold for new stories. He can't really do that sort of thing when all of that repository has been canned. And that is unfortunate.
Which brings me to Kyle. While it is true that young Kyle has had the worst of luck when it comes to girlfriends dying, heck just about everyone he knows dying, there is also something that he has been awfully good at...and that is resurrections. He brought back most of the Corps for Pete's sake, not to mention recreating the Guardians, Kilowog, and even his own Mother! So...let's have Kyle work his magic and bring back all of those nice dead Lanterns, and get rid of this current bunch of worthless Guardians, who have proved themselves to be completely unworthy of the duty placed upon them. Bring back Sayd, have Ganthet get his brains back, and bring back a whole fabulous host of really cool Green Lanterns. Like Katma! And Boodikka, and Kreon, and Ch'p!
And then, please God, let us have stories about the Green Lantern Corps again.
Oh, and Hal and Sinestro too. Why the heck not?
