Things we should be able to agree on.
- Green Lantern is one of DC's premier heroes/franchises.
- Green Lantern Corps is the secondary title to Green Lantern.
- Spider-Man is one of Marvel's premier heroes/franchises.
- Amazing Spider-Man is the primary title for the character.
- Green Lantern Corps has been regularly outselling Amazing Spider-Man for the last year.

Now we can argue about the reasoning for GLC selling more than ASM. But it doesn't change the end result that it does. And to repeat my earlier position, I think it's a shame that the GLC is a more popular title than ASM.

We should also both be able to agree that both Spider-man and Green Lantern have three titles in the top twenty apiece.

My point was that those are not numbers to dismiss or sneeze at.
Since you admit yourself the Green Lantern Titles are hot titles it should be considered good to be keeping pace with them. Especially with the fanbase as divided as it is.
