DC Comics Launch New ‘Green Lantern’ Series This April

by Olly MacNamee

DC Comics have announced who will be replacing the hard-to-follow creative team of Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp on Green Lantern when it relaunches this April. And that team is writer Geoffrey Thorne and and artist Dexter Soy.

Green Lantern #1 launches off the back of both Future State: Green Lantern and Infinite Frontier #0, with Hal Jordan nowhere to be seen! Although it will include Young Justice’s Teen Lantern, Far Sector’s Sojourner “Jo” Mullein and John Stewart, plus a few other familiar Corps members if the cover is any indication:

“Spinning out of Future State: Green Lantern and Infinite Frontier, John Stewart is at the center of the new series — plus Young Justice’s Teen Lantern and Far Sector star Sojourner “Jo” Mullein! As this new Green Lantern saga begins, the newly formed United Planets and the Guardians of the Universe hold an intergalactic summit to decide who can best serve and protect the cosmos from danger.”

With the majority of Green Lanterns called back to Oa, John Stewart arrives alongside Teen Lantern Keli Quintela, whose homemade gauntlet could be one of the most powerful and unstable weapons in the universe. With the entire landscape of the universe in flux, is this the end of the Green Lantern Corps…or a new beginning?

As the new Green Lantern series progresses, Jo Mullein (Far Sector#10 arrives on February 2) joins the Corps to find out why the Central Power Battery exploded. Jo and Keli are on the case—are they the World’s Finest Lanterns?? What will this dynamic duo uncover as they investigate!?”

DC’s Infinite Frontier #0 on March 2, where fans will see Dexter Soy’s Green Lantern artwork for the first time.

Catch the all-new Green Lantern #1 Tuesday April 6th, and before that DC’s Infinite Frontier #0 on Tuesday 2nd March from DC Comics.
