What do you do when all you are fueled on grief and rage, but suddenly all that has gone? Red Lantern Atrocitus has this dilemma after Krona, the rogue guardian who slaughtered his home world is killed by Hal Jordan and not by Atrocitus’s hands. He is on a path of self discovery to see where his life now leads him. His troops no longer respect him, he is a changed man.
In our first, and most recent round up of the soon to be rebooted 52 DC titles, my colleague Supascoot went over 12 of them (including Batman Inc. which had no cover yet), and now it is my pleasure to cover the next four, which sadly…. have no covers.
Starting in September there will be four new Green Lantern titles smashing into our collective faces, and they include the already talked about Red Lantern ongoing series that Geoff Johns teased us with a couple months back. Check out the creative teams and descriptions below thanks to Comic Alliance:
GREEN LANTERN #1
Geoff Johns has been charting the adventures of Hal Jordan and the GREEN LANTERN Corps since GREEN LANTERN: Rebirth, collaborating with such major artists as Ethan Van Sciver, Darwyn Cooke, Prentis Rollins, Marlo Alquiza and Mick Gray.
This fall, Johns reunites with artists Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy, as the series begins anew with GREEN LANTERN #1 with cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Together they will continue to thrill readers and expand the Green Lantern mythos.
Change is coming. But set aside your fear. It’ll be worth the wait.
When deadly conflicts emerge across the universe, it’s up to Guy Gardner, John Stewart and an elite Green Lantern strike force to keep the peace.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #1 will be written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna. The cover to #1 is by Doug Mahnke and Christian Alamy.
GREEN LANTERN: THE NEW GUARDIANS #1
Who are The New Guardians?
The power of Rage, Avarice, Fear, Will, Hope, Compassion and Love combine to be the most powerful (and colorful) team in the corps under the leadership of Kyle Rayner. Beware their power . . . and their volatility!
GREEN LANTERN: THE NEW GUARDIANS #1 will be written by Tony Bedard and illustrated with cover by Tyler Kirkham and Batt.
RED LANTERNS #1
Going solo. Atrocitus and his Red Lantern Corps return in their own series, battling against injustice in the most bloody ways imaginable. This Lantern Corps takes no prisoners, they are judge, jury and executioners!
RED LANTERNS #1 will be written by Peter Milligan with art and cover by Ed Benes and Rob Hunter.
Obviously after Flashpoint and War of the Green Lanterns, there is going to be some major changes to the Green Lantern titles. And until the War of the Green Lanterns is finished and the reboot happens we won’t exactly know the status of all of our favorite lanterns, or what has changed with some of them, but these descriptions give us a little insight. Fans of all of the other emotional spectrum Corps rejoice and haters groan accordingly, because with a Red Lantern title the other Corps are here to stay.
It’s a given that Hal Jordan will be a Green Lantern still (right?), and it would appear that it’s business as usual for Guy and John Stewart. But Kyle Rayner will be leading a multi-colored ring team in the New Guardians title, so does that mean he will be a bearer of the green light or will he remain as a bearer of the blue light as he currently is in War of the Green Lanterns? Perhaps all of the entities that power the different Corps will inhabit Kyle and his new team of ‘Guardians’.
Of course we’ll know a little more once the covers for these new titles are released, and you can rest assured we will have them for you as soon as they hit the net!
Green Lantern #64-War of the Green Lanterns Pt. 1
It’s here! The newest Green Lantern event! I’m hoping this one is at least almost as good as Blackest Night, and on par with the Sinestro Corps War. And let me tell ya, the first part did not disappoint. Not one bit! In the prologue for War of the Green Lanterns we learn that Krona, a member of the Guardians’ species, and antagonist of the story, was once to be inducted onto the council of the Guardians. And he might still be there if not for his insistence that emotion is a necessary part of being a Guardian, and life for that matter. Because of this he draws the ire of the council and is arrested. It was unclear if he escaped, but the ring leader’s of each emotion are shown visions of Krona’s past where he reprogrammed the Manhunters to turn on the Guardians, and annihilate a whole sector. This sector as it turns out was the homeworld of Atrocitus, the leader of the Red Lanterns who vows vengeance against Krona and those who stand in his way.
