With the ending of, effectively, Season 1 of The Green Lantern on the horizon and, I dare say, a chance for Liam Sharp to catch his breath, keeping us entertained ahead of the second season will be Green Lantern: Blackstars by Grant Morrison And Xermanico.
A three-issue mini-series, will follow on the “catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12″ by Morrison and Liam Sharp, with not a single Green Lantern to be found anywhere in the universe! If fact, it never existed in the first place! Uh, oh, looks like Morrison is re-writing the DCU’s history with Hal Jordan joining up with the Blackstars, who have featured heavily on occasions across Sharp and Morrison’s run. And, judging by the cover, he’s got his hands full. But, where are the missing GL Corps? And, what new history of the DCU will solidify in its place, this time?
Across the DC universe, come November 2019, once-familiar faces wielding Lantern power rings now wear a different uniform and enforce a new type of galactic law. The Green Lantern Corps is dead—long live the Blackstars in a new three-issue miniseries, Green Lantern: Blackstars, by Grant Morrison and Xermanico
Morrison tells DC Comics:
Jordan’s one of the Blackstars’ primary operatives. He’s central, although the Cosmic Vampire Countess Belzebeth vies with him for control of the narrative in Blackstars. Hal Jordan is the kind of man who will excel in any situation, so naturally he’s an elite Blackstar in this altered-continuity.
Green Lantern: Blackstars #1, written by Grant Morrison with art by Xermanico, debuts in comic book stores and online retailers on Wednesday, November 6th with the first of three triptych covers by Liam Sharp and a variant cover by Darick Robertson. Roll on November!
