Yeah, it's a very different book than it was at #1, imo.
I found Larfleeze to be "eh" at best.

Yup. I think it's a lot better now than it was at the beginning.

As much as people liked Mr. Spock, even he worked only as the second banana. He'd have never worked as the star.
You're wrong. Data's Day was THE best Star Trek episode of all series.
A similarly great Enterprise episode was Dear Doctor, which had the same premise.

The best episode of any series can feature any regular. BUT DATA WAS NOT THE STAR OF THE SHOW. He was not the leading man or the leading lady. He was a supporting player. Again, this is not complicated.

Actually I don't. You usually write some overbearing essay that I skip over. I see your posts on CBR and I just skip it and read the comments about your posts.

I did read a couple of your early reviews, but then I realized you were blinded by your Hal hate so I quit wasting time, I could never get back. However, I wish you well, go watch all five episodes of John pretending to be Hal in the JLU and don't worry be happy.

Do you spend much time there? I don't as much as I used to, but it does seem to have quite a bit of GL discussion over there.

They haven't posted April sales yet, but I'll keep checking. They usually get to it around the 8th of the next month but it's been earlier and later.

So Sinestro debuted at #33 and actually beat this weeks Green Lantern book. It won't stay that way, but I guess that's alright for a book that DC apparently decided they could just market with the title, and nothing else.

Huh. My usual source (Comic Chronicles) hasn't published April sales yet, but you're the second person to refer to some of that data.

Well it doesn't seem THAT inaccurate, besides its just numbering, there are no actual sales estimate apparently.

Yeah, I checked my backup site and they don't have the final numbers either, so the full info might not be released yet. I'll keep checking. It won't be more than another day or two.

Yeah Diamond usually drops the rankings first and then everyone seemingly gets the official data soon after.

Diamond's numbers are always about 3k below the real totals. DC's normal cancellation point is 20k, which is 17k on Diamond.

If it is true that Sinestro beat out GL. I would usually be happy for it, however with the current direction of Green Lantern. It's not that impressive. It would be like bragging about beating up a crippled kid. That's some low hanging fruit there.

The numbers are up. All the Lantern titles lost about 1k in sales. If that doesn't stop, then all of the but the flagship comic will be in trouble by the first of the year.

That's true, and RLs is flirting with serious trouble. It's lost almost 2/3rds of its readership since it started. I expect DC would find a way to salvage GLC, but we could be looking at only 3 titles, which includes the Sinestro experiment, by the summer of 2015.

Which wouldn't be bad at all. Three Lantern titles is more than enough.

I am about to drop GL. GLC I dropped long ago. I hope Sinestro can pick up and be the Sinestro book I always dreamed of.
