The Guardians are messing up the universe once again! It begins next week (releases on August 29th) in the Green Lantern Annual #1, by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver! The issue releases on August 29th. Here’s what Johns said on DC’s THE SOURCE:
“Ethan has been a brilliant collaborator and co-creator since the beginning of GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH. Introducing new concepts and revealing huge, enigmatic, dangerous and heroic characters to the Green Lantern universe is what we do best together. And we’re hoping to continue that with GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1. I’m not sure anyone realizes what we have in store for them … and we like it that way.”
The ZERO issue for Green Lantern, due out September 5th, will take a look at the back story of the “First Lantern”. Johns also had this to say about issue ZERO:
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely–and the Guardians time is finally here. The Lantern titles spent the first year of DC Comics The New 52 re-establishing themselves, but it all comes back together with year 2 starting with Green Lantern #0 and leading into October’s #13’s – which share an amazing cover by Ivan Reis. In October, the Guardians’ Third Army rises to replace the Green Lantern Corps – but HOW is horrifying and WHY will change the Guardians and their ancient mission forever. As we discover what the Third Army actually means, our strongest Lanterns are targeted for absolute destruction. From Atrocitus to Guy Gardner to our newest Green Lantern from Earth – who may have been wrongly chosen – all their darkest secrets and failures will come to light. What is Sinestro’s ultimate fate? Who is this new Green Lantern and why was he chosen? What is the Third Army? What with Atrocitus sacrifice to take on the Guardians? What will Larfleeze give up to find the one thing he wants? What happens to Guy Gardner when he’s targeted after Hal Jordan? And, most importantly, who is the First Lantern?”
Sounds exciting to me! I will keep all you Towelites updated!!
