Civil War of the GL Corps

I'm not sure about Marvel, but DC hasn't abandoned crossovers by a longshot. Now, DC is going to flood their Green Lantern titles with this awful nonsense:
“From Rebirth to Sinestro Corps to Blackest Night, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner have stood by each other and fought together to save our universe,” said Green Lantern writer Geoff Johns. “After all that, what could possibly tear them apart? We’ll find out in War of the Green Lanterns starting in March’s War of the Green Lanterns #1 and throughout the Green Lantern titles in March, April and May. Every Green Lantern is about to be tested — and tested against one another.”
Gee, isn't that just what everybody needs: division. And this is a clue to how Johns' alleged love of GL lore is phony. As was the case with Civil War, instead of character relations like the GLs going out on dates with hot women, for example, and trying to help people in trouble with criminals lurking around the neighborhood, we get the gazillionth example of heroes clashing against each other, and it doesn't matter if they're brainwashed by a force of evil, it still stinks.

With the GL movie set to open next year, I wonder how well this will play out with anyone who might be interested in the current adventures of the Emerald Warriors? Judging by sales even for GL-based titles, I'd say the answer is: not very well, if at all.

In a word: Yawn.

Seconded.
