So stoked on the new creative team for Green Lantern.
I always love seeing new takes on Hal, and while I’ll miss Johns and the great echelon he’s added to the GL universe and dimension he’s added to Hal, I’m very excited to see how someone else can take that and show something new fresh and daring.
The great thing about John’s run was the hero’s journey of Hal. Starting from being a generally all around good, albeit irresponsible, guy who did things mostly because he thought he should to being a hero because it’s the right thing to do. The learning curve of what it means to have a weapon and when and how to use it; that the makings of a hero is not weapon or power, but the bearer.
The securing of a legend of pure will. Of wanting it bad enough to make it work. Of believing in yourself, as a power and a method.
Robert Venditti has a long road ahead, but it’s bright.
