    Why not? Wasn't it an issue of Amazing Spider-Man? OMIT wasn't tied into a line-wide crossover event like Blackest Night. Blackest Night was DC's heavily promoted, must-read series for the DCU. OMIT was heavily promoted as the next arc of Amazing Spider-Man issues. Isn't that a different set of parameters?

The issue in question for GLC wasn't a Blackest Night tie in, it was several issuse removed from the event and the last issue of the first storyline after it (Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns). It was also by the regular creative team. The issue of ASM wasn't even by the regular creative team. OMIT was heavily promoted as the sequel to OMD meant to tell us all the secrets of the big storyline. I didn't even see DC advertise Revolt of the Alpha Lanterns.

    The Green Lanter titles have been the driving force of everything at DC for a couple years now.
    For that Matter the new Flash title is promoted as leading to "Flashpoint" the NEXT big thing at DC.
    The fact is that the GL books are hot right now and Spidey is right up there with them.

I don't think the GL titles have been the driving force of everything DC for the last few years, they were just the start of one specific event that was not originally intended to be a line wide event by its creators. The Green Lantern title isn't the New Avengers at DC.

The GL books aren't just hot right now, but have been so for the last several years. And with the upcoming movie and television show I would guess that it's going to be that way for a few more years. DC seems to be doing a much better job of showcasing the Batman and Green Lantern titles then I think Marvel is of doing with Spider-Man and Wolverine.
