That's one of the big problems with Green Lantern (probably the biggest). Fans are often fans of it for COMPLETELY different reasons, and while that might sound like a good thing when you say it, the reasons are often conflicting and it makes it so there isn't a lot of unity and a lot of fracturing and frustration within the fanbase, because it's difficult to appease all these people with wildly conflicting expectations and interests.

Though, I'm sure I'm not saying anything groundbreaking and new to anyone here

When Geoff added so much to it, the result was not more fans but fewer of them. That's because it necessarily meant there was less and less of what anybody had liked.

If you didn't like the emotional spectrum, or Baz and Cruz, or Hal in space, then you were just out of luck. What you liked wasn't even a side dish any more.

Geoff needs to own the magnitude of his mistake and consent to someone else doing a reboot. Someone with an extensive knowledge and appreciation of the pre-Marz Green Lantern, and who is not a fan of what Geoff did to it.

May's numbers are up. Here's a brief preview, with a comparison to April. I'm still pretty sure that the figures for GLs are being puffed by about 5K.

APRIL:
59. HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #18 $2.99 DC 34,507
61 HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #19 $2.99 DC 34,140
MAY:
67. HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #20 $2.99 DC 33,721
68. HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #21 $2.99 DC 33,259

APRIL:
60. GREEN LANTERNS #20 $2.99 DC 34,224
63. GREEN LANTERNS #21 $2.99 DC 33,556
MAY:
69 GREEN LANTERNS #22 $2.99 DC 32,686
72. GREEN LANTERNS #23 $2.99 DC 32,251

That's not a bad drop at all. I was expecting worse. Almost looks like they may be close to levelling off.

I don't agree about your idea of any puffing up of sales though. These are the orders. Diamond would have to be lying too.

Diamond isn't lying and DC isn't either. What I meant by puffing is that when a company really wants to sell a title, it'll offer a special deal whereby if a comics shop doesn't sell all the copies it orders, it can return the extra ones for a refund. This encourages the shops to order more copies of that title than they otherwise would.

I read that DC did this with The New Guardians, and that it increased the monthly orders through Diamond by about 5K. It stands to reason that this is what's happening with Green Lanterns too.

You expressed GL's problem succinctly. I've seen those sentiments among all long-published titles/heroes, but GL's fanbase seems be one of the most divided. That's not surprising since GL's titular characters and eras differ wildly, but I've come to see that I'm in the minority as someone who has enjoyed just about all of it.
