Green Lantern March 2013 Solicitations

While the DC Comics solicitations aren’t due to be released until Monday, Newsarama was given an exclusive first look at the March information for the Green Lantern family of books.  With March the “Wrath of the First Lantern” looks to be felt by everyone as the next major storyline impacts all four of the main books in the group.

The Absolute Blackest Night hardcover is also being re-solicited now that it has been expanded to 576 pages from it’s initially announced 360 pages.  Perhaps in response to fan criticism the pertinent issues of the main Green Lantern title have been added to the edition.
