OK, DC, you can stop it now…
Seriously, it’s amazing what they’re doing to get people to jump up and down with joy. Already out the gate this morning on DC’s Source blog, they’ve just announced two new Green Lantern books and two being re-launched to go along with every other new book coming out in September.
The two being re-launched are Green Lantern #1 by the same GL team in Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke and Green Lantern Corps #1 by a returning Peter Tomasi with art by Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna.
The two new ones are New Guardians #1 by Tony Bedard and Tyler Kirkham, focusing on Kyle Rayner leading the other Lantern Corps, and Red Lanterns #1 by Peter Milligan and Ed Benes. The latter here is no surprise, as it was announced several months ago, though it looks like they’re making it part of the re-launch now as opposed to lining it up with the upcoming movie.
Looks like the Green Lantern oversaturation is going to continue. Several folks I’ve talked to are already growing weary of the series and want it to return to its space cop roots – we’ll see if this is exactly the route it’s going to head.
