No,that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about GETTING RID OF THINGS.

Yes, including Jessica Cruz. She's got to go, along with much other flotsam.

Don't turn some little wise-ass loose on it who would add all sorts of stuff that he'd get paid for, and that even his fanboys would get tired of in a few years.

Yep. And everything he created needs to go away. At this point it's worthless anyway.

The property has needed rebooting for a long time, and this should be the last straw for every skeptic.

The fact that Johns maneuvered behind the scenes to keep the A-list pencilers away from Bendis should have put him on everyone's shit list. Ask yourself what kind of person does that.

I think that's what he's doing. But a lot of stuff just can't be rehabilitated.

The comic needs to be THOUGHTFULLY and CAREFULLY rebooted.

Or maybe make them look impressive, like the Silver Surfer. But don't make them look goofy or silly, unless it's a comedic character like Ch'p or Gnort.

Ultimately, fiction needs to be about people. Your audience will dump you if you don't recognize that. You can put a few aliens in your stories, but if you do, make them look like this.

You could make a good argument that The Dick Van Dyke Show was the best sitcom of the Sixties. I think only Green Acres and the first few seasons of The Andy Griffith Show were better.

Why aren't people more excited that Grant Morrison is writing Green Lantern?

I think the answer is that funny-looking aliens passed their peak during Geoff's tenure on the comic.
