So of the 4 Lantern books, which is the best?
 
I'm getting all the Lantern "New 52" books pulled for me each month. To be brutally honest, so far GLC is boring me to tears. RL has potential but I'm not seeing it yet. NG, other than the "wow, nothing happened at all" #1, has grabbed me with issue #2 big time. GL itself? I dunno, I dig Sinestro most of all but I'm waiting to see something smack me in the face.

I find GL to be really good, GLC to be fine, New Guardians to be barely passable, and Red Lanterns to be the drizzing shits.

Michael Allred 10-31-2011 07:04 AM

Love "The Thing" BTW, my all time fav film.

Mister.Weirdo 10-31-2011 12:57 PM

Which version of the thing, the recent version, the 1982 version, or the original?

LordAtrocitus 10-31-2011 02:57 PM

I LOVE Green Lantern...but I also LOVE New Guardians...and Red Lanterns is just beautiful! Green Lantern Corps is terribly underwhelming so far...tough choice...really tough choice. I'd have to go with Red Lanterns though...personally...for reasons that are readily apparent.

SD80MAC 10-31-2011 03:00 PM

In order from best to worst: NG, GLC, GL, RL.

LanternJake 10-31-2011 04:33 PM

So far GL has been the best with a fresh storyline and new take on sinestro interesting me.GLC could get better though i'm not sure.and as for the other two , NG is picking up with #2 with RL being the worst so far,not to say it's shockingly bad.I have hope for RL with the preview for #3 looking not too bad.

Kuhan 10-31-2011 04:59 PM

I've already dropped Red Lanterns. eff that ess.

The only one that counts, John Carpenter's masterpiece.

For me it goes NG (only barely beating GL for the 1 spot) GL, GLc and RL (which is boring me to tears, and is in danger of being dropped) I hope RL gets cancelled so I dont have to feel bad for not buying all 4 comics

I'm only following GL, GLC and GLNG. So far the stories are okay. With some things to look forward to for the next issue.

JuanMal 11-01-2011 04:37 PM

So far it's a tie between GL and GLC for me. Those two books are great IMO. I had really high hopes for GL:NG but still waiting for something to really happen. I hope RL picks up, don't wanna dropit. RL has real potential but it's not living up to it so far.

Carpenter's is the best...but I love all three!

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 11-01-2011 06:29 PM

Back on topic...

I'm committed to any GL title for the longhaul through thick and thin, so my sincere hope is that New Guardians and Red Lanterns both "end" or get cancelled so I am let off the hook.

GreenLantern888 11-01-2011 11:10 PM

Green Lantern and New Guardians are hitting out of the park with every issue to me, Red Lanterns and GLC are good but like the other two.

1. Main GL- Interesting turn of events with Sinestro as GL. It's new and fresh and a different take on the title.

2. Emerald Guardians- I'm interested to see where this story is headed, especially with Kyle turning into Captain Planet.

3. GLC- Even this early on with a formidible foe, this title seems predictable and ho-hum.

4. RL- This is absolute crap. The less we know about Atrocitus, the better off we all are.

Unless you've read Emerald Dawn II. ;)

Space Cop 11-02-2011 12:59 PM

GL is my favorite just because it's the Hal book. Then it probably goes GLC, RL, and NG. I don't hate any of them (nor love them for that matter).

I see the flaws in RL people are talking about, but for me, it's like watching a slasher sequel. I'm not in it for some great character development, just for some cool blood letting.

Bob Sachs 11-02-2011 01:19 PM

1. Green Lantern - Issue #1 didn't really grab me, but #2 was awesome.

2. New Guardians - S'gonna be interesting to see where this all goes, so ...

3. Green Lantern Corps - Guy is my favorite GL, as everyone knows, so I'm definitely gonna be reading this title. I really hope the writers use this opportunity to make John Stewart either a likable character for me -OR- make me hate him entirely.

4. Red Lanterns - Gonna wait and see before passing judgment on this title... It is cool to know that Atrocitus has a somewhat moral compass guiding him though ...

Him getting snuck and taken down like a rookie ... not so good.

Mister.Weirdo 11-05-2011 07:07 PM

I agree!

IonFan 11-07-2011 04:32 PM

GL - i like seeing where it's going, and seeing Sin. as a "good guy" is something new

GL:NG - big fan of Kyle here and the fact that he's now a "Super" Lantern is just icing on the cake for me

GLC - one GL is great so having 7200 GL is just epic

so it looks like out of all of them RL is the worst (so far), if something BIG doesn't happen soon in it i for one will be done with it (and i had such high hopes for it :()

Space Cop 11-07-2011 10:28 PM

Could the mods add a poll?

Or should we wait for the animated adventures too?
