Back to referring to the ring as a "weapon" and featuring a Teen Lantern, while branding the book as "Ages 17+".

Plus, we get a writer who loves John Stewart but has apparently only watched the JLU cartoon and is writing him as a tough Marine, instead of the multi-nuanced, socially aware architect from the majority of his publishing history.

Compared to the high octane fun of Grant Morrison's The Green Lantern, this just feels kind of boring and uninteresting. I don't think I'll be reading the next issue.

While I'm thrilled to see Wally back as Flash, the way the writer describes Wally - "always been a wisecracking guy, like in the cartoon" - shows very little knowledge of comic-book Wally. The guy's been approachable and at times fun, but never like the cartoon.
It's the same way writers try to tell us John Stewart is a tough-as-nails Marine. Well, he was in the cartoon. When he first appear more

Great issue. Folks who are complaining about 'lack of action' have to remember this series has needed a switch up for some time. Jurgens' run was fine but took its sweet time getting back to DG. Taylor is a great writer, this issue cleanses the palate while setting up what's coming. Great art, looking forward to a well-written Dickie again!

Liam Sharp has proven time an again throughout this run just how much talent he has and in this finale he exits the series in high style.

First read takes some concentration, but second read (as usual with Morrison, especially as he's writing in shorthand these days) benefits and boy, what a run this was.

Gonna miss this series terribly. Morrison and Sharp get Hal and all his history, and push the character and concept farther than anyone has including Johns in quite some time.

Respect!
