Heroes Rebored

Based on the second set of reveals, I think that the folks predicting that this will be the equivalent of Zero Hour (in that most continuity stuck, some got tweaked, and very few got major revamps) are spot-on. Some heroes will be younger, hipper, edgier, collar-ier. In that light, I am calling this relaunch "Heroes Rebored", because.. yawn.

The Green Lantern family of titles brings us up to a total of 15 reveals out of 52. I assume we'll have a bloc of Superman and a bloc of Batman reveals soon as well. It looks like not one shred of continuity has been lost here. The GL titles are :

Green Lantern, by Geoff Johns, Doug Mahnke, and Christian Alamy - I don't like Mahnke's art.

Green Lantern Corps, by Peter Tomasi, Fernando Pasarin, and Scott Hanna - Now starring Guy and John, but don't worry, Kyle fans..

Green Lantern : The New Guardians, by Tony Bedard, Tyler Kirkham, and Batt - Featuring Jet! Extrano! Pieface! Er, wait, no.. wrong one. Tony Bedard deserves a GL book, I think.

Red Lanterns, by Peter Milligan, Ed Benes, and Rob Hunter - I just can't wait to see Ed Benes' illustrations of the Red Lantern district.
