Did the Printer Ever Run Out of Green?

"Did the Printer Ever Run Out of Green?" from Green Lantern Corps vol.3 #12 (DC, 2012) by Peter J. Tomasi, Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna
Today, Green Lantern is a bona fide franchise with four books, soon five, a success not seen for the Corps since the Gerard Jones days of GL, GLCQuarterly (a splash tomorrow), Mosaic, and Guy Gardner, though you could easily argue GL is much more high profile today. So yeah, where's all that green ink coming from? Have they tapped some overseas reserve? But seriously folks, I didn't really stick to this version of the GLC because it soon became apparent it was more of the same Cannon Fodder Corps that lost members on a regular basis and in the most gruesome of fashions (because if your blood's not red, it's not real gore). I'm hoping to come back into the fold with Josh Fialkov's more cop-oriented take on the concept in a few months.
