    I really enjoy the overarching story Johns is telling, but I'm getting fed up with the delays in the main GL book. Especially since GLC manages to come out like clockwork every month and, IMO, has been the better read for most of the last year. At the rate things are going, GLC's numbering is going to pass that of GL (maybe even before Blackest Night ends), despite GLC starting later. Like I say, I'm enjoying the direction of the GL books but between these constant delays on the main title, and Blackest Night looking to become a tie-in heavy money pit, I'm starting to regret sticking with this series.
